Nominations open for President’s Awards for Community Engaged Research

Nominations are now open for the President’s Awards for Community Engaged Research, which will recognize teams of campus and community representatives who have demonstrated a commitment to initiating and supporting excellence in community-campus research initiatives.

Developed to recognize and celebrate local (Golden Horseshoe and southwestern Ontario) community-engaged research partnerships that exemplify McMaster’s definition and principles of community engagement, the award will include a $10,000 grant towards furthering a specific community engaged research project.

McMaster students, staff, faculty, or community partners are all able to nominate colleagues and partners who have developed or are leading principled community engaged research partnerships that are having an impact on their community.

The achievements of award recipients will be acknowledged at a community engagement event to be held in Spring 2020.
