The Chicago Gun Violence Research Collaborative
Researchers and community members collaborating to create a safe, prosperous, and violence free future for all Chicagoans
Chicago Gun Violence Research Collaborative is made up of a diverse group of individuals spanning across several Chicago institutions.
Each year a cohort of graduate student fellows conduct research under the guidance of faculty fellows on gun violence issues in Chicago.
The Chicago Gun Violence Research Collaborative (CGVRC) offers a 15-week Graduate Student Fellowship to:
Understand the root causes of gun violence from a public health perspective
Learn from a network of leading gun violence scholars, advocates, and stakeholders through presentations and discussions
Collaborate on faculty-fellow teams to develop, implement, and disseminate an applied research project related to gun violence
Since 2017, the fellowship has provided a 15-week program that brings together student fellows (graduate students from Chicago-based universities) and faculty fellows (professors and public health professionals) to develop, implement, and disseminate applied research.
