Shopfront Community Research Fellowship recipients announced
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the Shopfront Community Research Fellowship for 2018.
The Fellowship Research Committee would like to note the high quality of the record-breaking number of applications received.
The five winning applicants for 2018 are: Elyse Methven and David Carter from the Faculty of Law, Amy Thomas from FASS, Peter Irga from FEIT, and Samantha Donnelly and Linda Steele from DAB.
The Community Research Fellowship aims to support UTS researchers to develop high-quality community-engaged research. Fellowships are funded during an annual, mid-year call application process with the aim of supporting a range of time-based needs, such as securing a teaching or marking buy out, technical support, or short-term salary or research assistance. Successful Fellows also have access to UTS Shopfront and its resources, including academic editing and communications expertise.
The Fellowship should be viewed as a seeding/completion grant - rather than full funding for research – to support activity that results in either:
- Scholarly publication: Fellows may submit to a peer reviewed publication, such as the UTS Shopfront Monograph Series or a relevant journal.
- Public engagement: Fellows may deliver a program to make their research findings accessible and relevant to broader, non-expert publics and amplify research impact. Pubic communication and conversation activity may include developing open access, non-academic policy or industry reports; lay media publication or broadcasting; public seminars, demonstrations, exhibitions or events; public awareness campaigns; or public policy action.
- Funding: Fellows may ‘prepare the ground’ – including establishing relationships with relevant community networks - and develop and submit an application for funding for a program of community-engaged research.

Huge congratulations again to our 2018 Fellowship recipients!
