Community-based participatory research is inquiry that is aimed at informing solutions to benefit the community, through collaboration with community members in all stages of the process: determining the research question and inquiry method(s), data collection, and dissemination of findings.
Projects in this category should contain some component of research that focuses on gender and women's issues. These projects should have a long-term goal of advancing gender equality or the cause of women and girls. (By choosing yes to this question you will be contacted via email and asked to provide 1-2 sentences describing how your project has a long-term goal of advancing gender equality or the cause of women and girls. This will need to be provided prior to judging.)
To be considered in this category, research must address issues related to the three pillars of sustainability: environment, economy, and society. Content can relate to sustainable development in creating a healthy and thriving resource system for all; environmental issues, social issues applied to sustainable development such as human welfare, social equity issues or social/organizational/behavioral change; economic issues applied to sustainable development; discourse focused on the interconnection of world resources and the human condition from a long-term perspective; or content related to policy and communications issues applied to sustainable development.
Projects eligible for this category have utilized nanofabrication and/or microscopy (light, confocal and/or electron) techniques in their research. Research should have been conducted in a GW lab or facility, including the GW Nanofabrication and Imaging Center (GWNIC).

AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program

The AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program, funded by the National Science Foundation, provides grants of up to $3,000 to GW researchers who wish to explore the prospects for applications of their research or technology to solve problems that could lead to a broader impact in society. The program will award at least 30 grants this year.

Any GW student, faculty or staff is eligible to participate in the AccelerateGW I-Corps Site Program.

The grant money can be used for travel and related expenses to conduct customer interviews. It can also be used and for some limited development of prototypes or a minimum viable product.

Participants will be expected to complete an introductory course (two one-day workshops during a two-week period). In these workshops participants will learn and practice the concepts of the Lean Startup approach to entrepreneurship, including constructing business models, evidence based entrepreneurship and customer development. In between the class sessions, there will be some assignments, customer discovery interviews, and office hours with instructors. These activities generally take about 10 hours per week.

If you select "Yes" to the question above, you will be asked two brief questions now and be sent a link to a follow-up survey with additional questions.
