Community-Based Research Initiative

The Center for Regional Studies (CRS) in partnership with the College of Arts & Sciences announces a community-based research initiative.  This initiative will financially support two community-based research projects for the 2022-2023 academic year (FY23) with the option for a second year in 2023-2024 (FY24).  The financial support for each project will total $30,000 per fiscal year. 

CRS invites project proposals engaging with a New Mexico or Southwest community that works to develop or assist with practical and real-life solutions to the challenges facing peoples in the twenty-first century.  The project should be co-directed by a faculty member from a department or program in the College of Arts & Sciences along with a community-based partner or partners. 

The community-based research project must coincide with the mission of the Center for Regional Studies. Please read the call for proposals and application packet for more details.
