The Engaged Scholar Awards recognize one student, one faculty member and one community partner for their exemplary participation in community-engaged scholarship during the preceding year. Presented annually, these three awards are made possible by the Office of Community Engagement and the Office of the Provost.

Purpose of the Engaged Scholar Awards:

Community engaged-scholarship is the collaboration between academics and individuals or organizations outside the academy, in the context of partnership and reciprocity. It can involve generating, validating, synthesizing, or applying knowledge at the local, regional, national or global level. Community is broadly defined to include non-profit organizations, social enterprises, governmental agencies, and institutions.

Recipients for the faculty, student and community partner awards will be selected on the basis of the quality of the community-univeristy partnership, the ways in which the initiative addresses community-identified needs and the ways in which the engagement activities enhance teaching, learning and research at Concordia.

The Nomination Deadline for the 2018 Engaged Scholar Awards is 5 p.m. on Monday, February 12, 2018. Submissions are closed for 2018.
