Masters’ Research Fellows Program
The Center for Research on Early Childhood Education (CRECE) invites applications for a
research fellowship program funded through a generous contribution from Sue and George Krug.
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 PhD students on current CRECE research projects.

In these fellowships, students will experience:

  • active engagement in a CRECE research project from September 7, 2022 – May 5, 2023
  • mentoring by a faculty member a PhD student
  • participation in a weekly workshop
  • a culminating project report during the fellowship period
  • an hourly stipend of $24.82/hr based on an agreed-upon time commitment
  • one research credit per semester

We will consider applicants who 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
