The Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity congratulates undergraduate student Aihs Palmer, psychology major, who received this year's Community Engaged Learning Award. Aihs' project titled "Micro-pantries to Mitigate Inaccessibility to Anti-Hunger Resources," will collaborate with Fairbanks organizations to address barriers to local food security resources.

URSA's CEL Award opens for applications every fall and offers funding up to $500 to work with a community partner to explore a community need or problem through research or scholarly activity. Degree-seeking undergraduate students, graduate students, full-time UAF faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and staff members are eligible to apply.
