The CTSI Community-Engaged Research Fellowship provides training and a mentorship network to scientists (e.g., early and mid-career faculty) across the Penn State campuses interested in advancing their community-engaged research expertise. Community-engaged research includes the active involvement and participation of community stakeholders in the research process, such as recruitment/retention strategies, survey development, or dissemination of research findings across an array of audiences (e.g., scientific and general public). Stakeholders can include communities and their members, patients, clinicians, researchers, purchasers, payers, industry, hospitals and health systems, training institutions, and policymakers, among others. The degree of stakeholder involvement in research is typically determined beforehand and falls on a continuum of possibilities, from collaborating fully in all aspects of the research process to being involved in a targeted part of the study.
