- Community Assistantship Program (CAP)
The Community Assistantship Program (CAP) is pleased to announce a Spring 2017 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 October 30, 2016. Approved projects will run from January 12, 2017 to May 28, 2017.
Eligible organizations include community groups, organizations, and local governments outside the seven county metro.
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 vital 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.
