Inspiring community based research is a critical component of OPIRG Kingston’s mandate. OPIRG’s community based research program serves to assist students, adjunct faculty, and community groups wishing to conduct research related to social, economic, and environmental justice.
This program will not only fund research but will also provide mentoring before, during, and after, offering support in areas such as writing research proposals, acquiring research skills, conducting ethical research, as well as disseminating research results to the community.
OPIRG-Kingston posts between two to four funded requests for research proposals throughout the year, at this page, so check back regularly for updating research opportunities.
Our spring 2015 research grants were: the 2015 Kingston Community Gardener Census and Challenging Rape Culture In University Communities.
We expect to release Fall 2015 requests for research proposals around mid-October.
