2013 Fall Open House
Friday, September 20 - 1:00-3:00pm
CBLI staff and students will be available to discuss research opportunities. Delicious snacks from local restaurants provided.
Can't make it on Friday? Make an appointment to talk to CBLI staff another time.
Do you want to make a difference?
Your junior paper or senior thesis research can provide useful information to nonprofits and the communities they serve.
Are you interested in Urban Development? Education Reform? Health Policy? Immigration? Homelessness?
Our nonprofit partners work on these issues--and many others--every day. You can ground your scholarship in practice by learning from community-based practitioners.
CBLI can help you make a connection to an organization whose work is related to your interests, and vice-versa. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about your interests or make an appointment to talk in person.
See topics of interest listed under Research Questions on the left sidebar menu.
Support for Independent Work
Through the Barfield Fund for Community-Based Independent Work and other funds, CBLI awards grants to facilitate senior thesis research conducted in partnership with communities and nonprofit organizations. To be considered for this funding, the application must describe the community partner’s participation in the design and/or implementation of the research project. The topic of the research may be directly related to the organization’s work, for example, or the organization may provide data or contacts. We expect the partner organization to be more than a site for the research and to have their work informed by the findings of the research. The partner organization does not have to be local (Princeton-Trenton area) or a current CBLI partner for an application to be considered.
