Last year, the Neag School of Education announced the launch of its prestigious Dean’s Doctoral Scholars program, designed to provide fully funded scholarships to outstanding doctoral students.
The Neag School is now actively seeking applications for its second cohort of Dean’s Doctoral Scholars. Individuals accepted into this exclusive program for the 2016-17 academic year will have the opportunity to:
- Earn a Ph.D. with four years of full funding
- Work alongside renowned Neag School faculty members on critical education issues
- Pursue research in at least one of the School’s four strategic areas of focus: STEM education; creativity and innovation; educator quality and effectiveness; or equity and social justice
- Build the knowledge and experience to become national leaders in education research, policy, and practice
In addition to full tuition remission, Dean’s Doctoral Scholars receive a generous stipend.
Applications are due by Dec. 1, 2015.
The first-ever cohort – comprising eight individuals selected from a pool of nearly 130 applicants from across the country – joined the Neag School this fall. Get to know each of our current Dean’s Doctoral Scholars in this issue’s Q&A.
