The Center for Public Education and Community Engagement (CPECE), housed in the College of Education at Texas Christian University (TCU), invites community organizations and academic researchers to submit community-based research proposals for three-year project funding.

  • Year 1 Budget: Up to $5,000
  • Year 2 and 3 Budget: Up to $8,000 per year

These projects aim to foster collaboration between TCU and local communities, focusing on creating positive social change and addressing issues faced by marginalized communities. This initiative is based on the belief that everyone can contribute to positive social change.

Faculty and community-based organizations, including non-profit organizations, grassroots initiatives, schools, community groups, and social enterprises are encouraged to apply jointly.

Proposals require equal partnerships, co-creation of knowledge, and the importance of centering the knowledge and experiences of marginalized communities.

Successful proposals will challenge traditional models of academic research, build long-term partnerships, and ensure lasting community benefits beyond the three-year funding period.
