Community-engaged scholarship is directly related to your discipline and always associated with community partnerships in your academic field.
Community represents groups of people who share commonalities, including geography (local, global); identity; affiliation or interest; circumstance; profession or practice; faith; and/or family/kin.
Scholarly means the work is based on existing scholarship and best practices and will generate new understandings and scholarly products for academic and public audiences. All scholarship, including community-engaged scholarship, requires high level of disciplinary (or interdisciplinary) expertise and uses an appropriate methodology.
Engaged means the work can be described as systemic, collaborative, asset based, mutually beneficial, capacity building and for the public good.
Any MU graduate student in good standing who will still be enrolled in a degree program during the summer following the receipt of the award.
Students will receive a $4000 summer fellowship.
Awardees will be selected by a committee that includes students, faculty, staff, and community members.
