Community-Engaged Research Fellowship

Through trust building, skills development, and co-learning, a primary goal of the PCER Community-Engaged Research Fellowship is to build, sustain, and expand the interest and capacity of community members and WF investigators to collaborate in translational science within an academic learning health system. This unique fellowship opportunity provides financial support for representatives from community organizations and WF investigators to build a community-engaged research partnership, with funds available to support existing partnerships, and/or to facilitate the establishment of new community-engaged research partnerships.
