The Community Assistantship Program (CAP) is pleased to announce a fall 2014 grant program. The grant will allow rural communities to hire a student to work on a project defined by those communities. The deadline for project proposals is June 30th, 2014. Approved projects will run from August 25th, 2014 to January 7th, 2015.

Winning communities will review job applications and select the student who best meets their needs. See:

Eligible organizations include community groups, organizations, and local governments outside the seven county metro.

What is CAP?

The Community Assistantship Program provides applied research assistance to community-based groups outside the Twin Cities Metro Area. The research and technical needs of community organizations are matched with the support of talented students. The idea is simple: get the resources of a great University working with communities to address the significant issues facing the people of Minnesota. CAP projects typically place students in a community defined and directed part time research assistantship for one semester or over the summer. Students are selected by and report to the community organization. Throughout the project students are supported by a community supervisor, faculty and community mentors.
