Community-Based Research-to-Practice Program: Applications Now Being Accepted

Student Proposals due Wednesday, April 19, 2023 (11:59 p.m. EST)

The Research-to-Practice grant awards $5000 to undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon for 8-10 FULL-TIME weeks of summer research that positively impacts the Greater Pittsburgh Region community.

The Community-Based Research-to-Practice Program offers a limited number of financial awards for qualified undergraduates sponsored by the Center for Shared Prosperity (CSP). CSP is borne from efforts to reduce barriers to equitable prosperity in the Pittsburgh region while working to build healthier relationships between institutions and the communities of which they are a part. Research-to-Practice projects are strongly encouraged to be developed in partnership with local community-based organizations, and all projects must be for the benefit of our Greater Pittsburgh Region.
