Community Scholar in Residence/Community Resident in Action Awards

Community Scholar in Residence
The UNP Community Scholar in Residence is a $10,000 award given to a full-time, tenure or non-tenure track, faculty member of the University of Utah over TWO academic years ($5,000/year). A request for proposals is issued every two years. This award serves as a catalyst for University of Utah faculty involved in public scholarship to integrate research, teaching, and engagement through UNP campus-community partnerships. In addition, it enables the University of Utah to better respond to west side, community-identified issues, while increasing the visibility of faculty members engaged in community partnerships, and providing greater voice to historically underrepresented neighborhoods.

Community Resident in Action
The UNP Community Resident in Action award is grounded in the belief that community residents bring important knowledge and capacities to the campus-community work of UNP that are unique and essential for University-Neighborhood mutually beneficial collaborations. The CRIA carries an award of $5000 per year for a maximum of two years. The CRIA will be awarded every one or two years based on progress.
