Community Learning Research Fellows work with Trinity faculty advisors to design and carry out a credit-bearing research or creative project in the Hartford area, in partnership with a community member or organizations (such as a school, non-profit agency, or local advocacy group). Projects can be part of a Trinity course, internship, independent study, or a senior thesis. Both student-initiated and student-faculty collaborative projects are welcome.
During the fall semester, Fellows join the CL Research Colloquium to develop and share their work with other undergraduate students and faculty participants. Each Fellow earns 0.5 credits for their participation in the colloquium and receives a $200 expense grant to help in conducting their research or preparing their final product.

Find out how to apply: faculty must nominate students by April 7th, 2014 (ask your professor to nominate you!) and students will be invited to submit full applications by April 21st, 2014. Learn more about projects by the 2012-13 fellows and the 2011-12 fellows, and read more about the colloquium.
The CL Research Fellows program is led by Professor Carol Clark (Community Learning Initiative Faculty Coordinator), and funded in 2012-13 by a grant from the Ad-Hoc Trinity Mellon Committee, and in 2013-14 by the Levy Foundation.
