Applications: CURA summer 2011 Community Based Research programs (NPCR, CAP, CMV)

The Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) is inviting proposals for the summer 2011 semester for three of it's Community Based Research programs: Neighborhood Partnerships for Community Research (NPCR), Community Assistantship Program (CAP) and Communiversity (CMV).

These community research projects typically place students in part-time research assistantships for one semester or over the summer. Students are selected by and report to the community organization. Organizations define and direct their research projects.

The goals of these programs are to:

2) provide students and faculty with useful community-based applied research and learning opportunities.

The deadline for project proposals is March 15th, 2011. Approved projects will run from May 30th to August 28th, 2011.
