Nominations open: President’s Awards for Community Engaged Scholarship

Nominations are now open for the inaugural President’s Awards for Community Engaged Scholarship.

The awards recognize and celebrate teams of campus and community representatives who are either leading, or involved in community-campus research partnerships that are having an impact in the Golden Horseshoe and southwestern Ontario. The awards include a $10,000 grant towards furthering a specific community-engaged research project.

The awards will be available to teams with a minimum of one faculty member and one community representative who have demonstrated a commitment to initiating and supporting excellence in community-campus research initiatives.

Community representatives may be from the public, not-for-profit, private sector, or from a grassroots community group. Research initiatives must be established and in existence for a minimum of one year and must be consistent with McMaster’s definition and principles of community engagement.

McMaster students, staff, faculty, or community partners are all eligible to nominate teams.

The deadline for submissions is April 9, 2018.
