Civic Engagement Research Fund

 

The Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement (IPCE) announces a call for proposals for research projects centered on civic engagement. UIC faculty and research staff of UIC research centers, institutes, and programs are eligible to apply. Awards are set at a maximum of $20,000 each.

IPCE seeks to partner on research that furthers understanding about effective strategies or tools that help:

  1. Citizens better understand the policymaking process;
  2. Citizens and communities to become more engaged in policy debate or deliberative processes;
  3. Government become more responsive to citizens;
  4. Government, non profits, and civic institutions use technology to engage and connect citizens (including those with disproportionately lower access to technology than the public at large) with government and/or improve service delivery;
  5. Community development efforts or local community change initiatives use civic engagement to enhance effectiveness or increase the overall impact of programs.

Applications must be submitted electronically by Monday, June 13.

IPCE commitments are contingent upon FY2017 state funding and availability. At the time of this document’s release, IPCE FY2017 funding has not yet been confirmed.

If you have any questions, please contact Katie James at (312) 355-0098.
