Undergraduate Research Fellows Program
The Center for Research on Early Childhood Education (CRECE) invites applications for a new
undergraduate 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 undergraduate
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 September 7, 2022 – May 5, 2023
  • mentoring by a faculty member and a graduate student
  • participation in a weekly workshop
  • a culminating project report during the fellowship period
  • an hourly stipend of $13.50/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
  • Have completed their sophomore or junior year.
