Awarded funding from NWP in November of 2008, and supplied with matching funds from CMU, the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the College of Education and Human Services, CRWP will host its inaugural summer institute in the summer of 2009.
Application materials for the 2009 summer institute will be made available on this website in the first weeks of February 2009.
