Project Funding

Community-Engaged Scholarship Fellows, either as individuals or as Duke-community partner teams, are eligible for up to an additional $12,000 to develop, enhance, expand or sustain an existing engaged scholarship project.

If applying with a partner or partners, only one member of the team should submit the additional information to apply for joint project funding.

Funds may be provided as the sole source of support or as complementary funds for the community-engagement component of the research or program. While priority will be given to projects related to Durham and Community Affairs’ strategic focus areas, projects with other foci and geographies are also welcome.
