Six doctoral students from four departments (Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Education, and Geography) were selected for the inaugural year of the Graduate Fellowship in Community-Based Research. These students were selected by a cross-campus committee of faculty, staff, and graduate students. Four of these .25 GRAs were funded by CU Engage and two by the Office of Outreach and Engagement. Fellows have completed a two-day summer seminar and will enroll in a doctoral course on the principles and practices of Community-Based Research. They will carry out CBR projects during the 2015-16 year that connect to their academic discipline and address a public issue.
