Community-Engaged Pathways and Partnerships (P2): A Grant Program for Academic Departments, Units, and Networks

Community-Engaged Pathways and Partnerships (P2) Fellows program supports and advances community-engaged scholarship among UNCG scholars and community partners. The program provides funding and professional development opportunities to teams who are working in a context of reciprocity and mutual benefit to advance knowledge about, and accelerate activities to address, community-identified priorities. This program is unique in that projects span three years; the focus is on community-engaged methods, practices, and outcomes; and the funds support team-based, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary scholarship. In addition, professional development and networking opportunities are open to all P2 university and community partners.

Teams are eligible for three consecutive years of funding up to $16,000. This grant supports teams who seek to build the capacity of their members and structures so that community-engaged initiatives move from individual efforts to collective action and commitments.
