Call for Applications: 2020 ARCC Partnership Development Seed Grants Recipients


Deadline: 28 may 2020


The Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) Seed Grant Program supports and promotes research that is conducted using a community-engaged research (CEnR) approach. CEnR is an approach to research that respects community input and builds upon the strengths of community partners in all aspects of the research process. By combining the knowledge and interests of communities with the expertise and resources of academics, the CEnR approach aims to increase the value of research for both and produce new perspectives, insights and approaches to improving the health of the community.
