The Community Research Fellowship supports undergraduate Pitt students in collaborating with local community partners in exploring relevant social issues through community-based research. The research may take place part-time during an entire academic year (a cohort continues through both fall and spring semesters), or full-time during the summer. Any interested Pitt student may submit an application, which should include a research proposal, statement of interest, and support letters from a faculty mentor and community partner. The research could include survey design, focus groups, interviews, data analysis, or any other relevant research methods. The student stipend for the Fall-Spring Community Research Fellowship is $1,000 per semester and the student stipend for the Summer Community Research Fellowship is $4000, provided by the Honors College. Community partners interested in partnering with a Community Research Fellow may contact Stacie Dow, SMD164@pitt.edu.
