Collaborative Publicly Engaged Scholarship (CPES) Program
The Office of Research Collaborative Publicly Engaged Scholarship (CPES) Fund provided two rounds of small (up to $5,000) grants intended to support UW Tacoma faculty in developing and sustaining publicly engaged scholarship activities, defined for this purpose as thecollaborative co-production and exchange of knowledge through mutually beneficial partnerships with community members and organizations that brings UW Tacoma’s urban serving mission to life.
The CPES program was funded through the UW TacomaStrategic Initiative Fund(SIF) from 2017-2019 and successfully awarded funding to 13 publicly engaged projects. A full list of previous awardees is below. We are happy to announce that SIF funds were provided to continue this program in 2020. This year, in collaboration with the Office of Community Partnerships, the Office of Research will be providing a total of $20,000 to fund 4 new publicly engaged projects.

UW Tacoma Publicly Engaged "Alternate RRF" Pilot Fund
In spring 2018, the Office of Research announced an internal “alternate RRF” pilot program – funded by the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs – in which faculty who submitted unfunded proposals to theUW Royalty Research Fund(RRF) in the 2017-18 (September and March) cycles were eligible to apply for awards of up to $10,000 through a competitive process. The intention of this fund is to invest in the promising and high-quality work of UW Tacoma Principal Investigators that were nonetheless not funded through the RRF.
