ABOUT "SCHOLARS WITHIN"
We are re-connecting our local scholars with the community. Our aim to to introduce increasing numbers of mentored local research projects conducted by African-American/African Diaspora master's and doctoral students. We are creating the environment and setting the stage for inspiring increasing numbers of youth to seek higher education. We are also setting the stage for bringing research processes and results back to the communities that are most likely to be affected by the findings.
We want to remove the veil that sometimes hides these persons from our view. Join "Scholars Within" today and help to re-connect our researchers, our students, and schools with the community and various stake hold er groups. We host Community-based Research Poster and other presentations to lay audiences.
Research poster sessions featuring the work of scholars Dr. Gina Nelson-Newton, Dr. Calista Kelly, and Dr. Talisa Sullivan were well-received at the 2017 Villager Awards. We plan to repeat that process at the 2018 Villager Awards.
We are currently recruiting African-American scholars, graduate students, and others from throughout the Diaspora to share their research with lay audiences including policy-makers, community leaders, and affected others.
We are also seeking mentors who can support and encourage graduate students in their emerging research by connecting them to affected communities.
