Urban@UW announces 2nd Request for Applications for RAC

Published on December 7, 2023

Urban@UW is excited to announce the second round of Request for Applications (RFA) for the Research to Action Collaboratory (RAC).

The RFA invites teams of community members, researchers and students across the University of Washington who are excited to co-produce actionable, community-centered research and knowledge for persistent urban-focused problems. The deadline for submitting an application is Monday, February 20, 2024, at 5:00 pm PST.

The Research to Action Collaboratory, launched last year, is an accelerator program that builds the transformational capacity of collaborative research teams to address sustainability and resilience across urban areas and the Pacific Northwest. Seeded by a grant from the Bullitt Foundation, the RAC will bring together teams of UW scholars and community partners and supply them with funds, intensive workshops to build team cohesion and collaboration skills, and peer support through the project cycles. The inaugural cohort has been collaborating to address extreme heat and just circular communities.

Urban@UW will host 3 online information sessions on the RAC program and RFA, open to all UW and community partners. You may register for these info sessions at the links below. Please contact with any questions.
