COMMUNITY-BASED PARTICIPATORY RESEARCH SCHOLARS AND AWARDS PROGRAM
The Community-Based Participatory Research Scholars and Awards Program (CBPR Program) is a key capacity-building opportunity to stimulate community-engaged research between Columbia University faculty and community/faith-based organizations. The CBPR Program offers structured training and practical experience in community-based participatory research (CBPR).
Key Program components:
- Participants begin their training with the Introduction to Community-Based Participatory Research course, which provides an overview of the fundamental concepts and components of CBPR methodology and acquaints participants with strategies for developing academic-community partnerships.
- Working in academic-community partnered pairs, participants co-develop a pilot research proposal that they submit to the Irving Institute for funding consideration.
The CBPR Program is offered at no cost to all admitted participants.
