Action Research Pathways
  • In the Spring Semester, first-year Sharpe Scholars have the opportunity to participate in research apprenticeships and mini-internships with numerous community-based research and engagement organizations who have partnered with Sharpe. 
  • These Pathways provide students with invaluable community, academic, and professional connections that can inspire and support future research endeavors after their first year. 
  • Applications to pursue an Action Research Pathway are currently closed.
