Elizabeth Weir passed away in 2015. Her generous gift to the university will allow ARC to offer one fellowship per year starting in the 2016-2017 school year. Please check back to this page for additional information in the fall of 2016. Thank you.


Through the leadership and generosity of Elizabeth Weir, the Action Research Center is proud to offer up to action research fellowships. Weir Fellows work on projects that have been thoughtfully developed using action research strategies. Projects should make a meaningful impact on the community and candidates are encouraged to develop projects that connect the local and the global. 

Each Weir Fellowship will be awarded up to $1500.  A fellow can use the award as income or to assist in project development. An individual or a small group can apply for the fellowship award.

Students interested in the Weir Fellowship should contact ARC for more information including application procedures and deadlines.
