Welcome 2019 NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral and Dissertation Fellows

May 23, 2019

The National Academy of Education (NAEd) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral and Dissertation Fellowships.  The fellowships provide funding and professional development to early-career researchers whose projects address critical issues in the history, theory, or practice of formal or informal education, at the national and international levels.

The NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship provides $70,000 to early-career scholars to focus on their research and attend professional development retreats. This year, the 30 postdoctoral fellows were selected from a pool of 221 applicants.

The 35 NAEd/Spencer Dissertation Fellows — selected from a pool of roughly 420 applicants — will receive $27,500 for a period of up to two years to complete their dissertations and also attend professional development retreats.

According to NAEd President Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings, “The NAEd/Spencer Fellowship Programs cultivate the next generation of education scholars by funding their research projects and providing resources to strengthen their research and research training, including mentorship from NAEd members.  We consider these fellows to be among the best in their respective fields, and I look forward to working with them in the coming year.”
