Graduate Summer Scholars Program

Image Picker for Section 0

The Graduate Community Engagement Scholars program provides highly motivated graduate students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a community-based research or creative project.  Scholars spend ten weeks during the summer in full time pursuit of their projects in partnership with a Delaware non-profit, government, community-based action research, or service-based corporate agency and simultaneously pursue academic reflection.  At the conclusion of the program, scholars present their projects at a symposium. Scholars receive a stipend of $5,000.



Students will assess their projects with assistance from CEI. They will submit a final report upon completion of the project.


2022 Community Engagement Scholars Application Process

Strong proposals clearly describe an issue in the community that this project aims to address and demonstrate the mutually beneficial collaboration with the community partner.  Priority will be given to students who have already established a connection or point of contact with the proposed community partner. Finally, proposals should indicate how the student plans to build on this research through their academic studies or career.
