Deadline for Outreach and Engagement fellowships is November 4

Contact for more information:
The deadline for three fellowships presented by USI′s Division of Outreach and Engagement is Friday, November 4. The fellowships include the Center for Applied Research Faculty Outreach and Engagement Fellowship, the Darrel Bigham Historic Southern Indiana Faculty Engagement Fellowship, and the New Harmony Outreach and Engagement Fellowship.

Applicants will be considered for projects that demonstrate a propensity to enhance faculty research while supporting economic development, community development, or quality of life improvements in southwest Indiana.

Eligibility for these fellowships has been expanded beyond full-time, tenured, or tenure-track faculty to facilitate faculty development. See eligibility requirements specified in each of the fellowship applications.

Center for Applied Research Faculty Outreach and Engagement Fellowship

The Center for Applied Research (CAR) serves as a "front door" for businesses and organizations that wish to work with the University. CAR mobilizes the resources of the University, including its faculty, students, and staff, to help regional businesses and organizations thrive.

CAR will award up to two $4,000 CAR Faculty Outreach and Engagement fellowships to USI faculty members who want to pursue a regional engagement project that focuses on a community-based applied research initiative. Projects may include, but are not limited to, measuring the impact of a local or regional social program, conserving environmental programs, or identifying southwest Indiana business cluster opportunities.

Applicants must hold full-time faculty positions at the time of application and be returning to campus for the 2012-2013 academic year. Applications must also have a regional community partner or organization.

The fellowship is designed to fund faculty-applied research that could not otherwise be financially supported by the organization benefiting from the proposed project.

Questions can be directed to Elissa Bakke, assistant director of the Center for Applied Research, at 812/454-8946 or

New Harmony Outreach and Engagement Fellowship

Historic New Harmony and the University of Southern Indiana established a partnership in 1985, encouraging cultural and educational programs and projects inspired by New Harmony′s utopian legacy, and maintaining the historic properties of the town. USI′s Historic New Harmony actively nurtures this living laboratory as a place where people can come together to experience, explore, and create.

Presented by Historic New Harmony, the USI New Harmony Outreach and Engagement Fellowship can award up to $20,000 of funding per year. Awarded on a competitive basis, up to four grants may be distributed each year.

The fellowship is designed for projects that will engage faculty and/or students in learning experiences in New Harmony, while simultaneously providing benefit to the town.

Each project must have an identified New Harmony partner and should be designed and completed in consultation with Historic New Harmony. Projects should have specified outcomes that are measureable upon completion of the project.

Questions can be directed to Missy Parkison, community engagement manager at Historic New Harmony, at 812/682-4488 or
