The CRECE Masters’ Research Fellows Program
The Center for Research on Early Childhood Education (CRECE) invites applications for a Masters’ research fellowship program funded through a generous contribution from Sue and
George Krug and UW 2030. The program’s goal is to diversify the research communities that address early childhood education issues. We hope to do this by providing mentored research experiences to traditionally underrepresented and other minoritized Masters’ students. CRECE’s work focuses on children ages 0-8, their families, caregivers, teachers, and communities. Fellows will work with both faculty and graduate students on current CRECE research projects.

In these fellowships, students will experience:
• active engagement in a CRECE research project from June 5 – July 28, 2023 (summer 2023) and/or August 27, 2023 – May 3, 2024 (2023-24 academic year)
• mentoring by a faculty member and a PhD student
• a stipend of $27.30/hr based on an agreed-upon time commitment
• one research credit per semester

We will consider applicants who have completed their sophomore or junior year and meet one or more of the following criteria:
• From a racial/ethnic minority group: African-American, Latino/Hispanic, Native Alaskan or Native Pacific Islander, Native American, Southeast Asian (Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian, or Vietnamese, admitted to the US after 12/31/1975), Biracial/Multiracial
• From a low-income household
• First in their family to attend college
• Have a documented disability
