The goal of the Fellowship is to nurture existing, and/or facilitate the establishment of, a community-engaged research partnership through trust building, skills development, and co-learning.
- The community partner will learn about research design, proposal development, and skills that might enhance operations and build organizational capacity (e.g., program development and evaluation). The community partner will spend 10% of their time (paid for by WFSM) to work with the WFSM research partner for 12 months.
