The CADRE Fellowship is a competitive program providing a significant professional development experience for early career researchers and developers currently working on a DR K-12 project. Through program activities, Fellows gain exposure to research and development from across the country related to STEM education, gain insights into NSF and what it takes to be successful and effective in this work, and network with DR K-12 PIs and Fellows from across the country. Fellows will also have the opportunity to experience an NSF PI meeting alongside their own PI to take place in Arlington, VA June 13-15, 2012.
Comments from previous Fellows on the experience include:
"Attending the PI meeting and the webinars provided me with many chances to interact with professionals, help me feel more connected to the academic world, and build confidence in talking about and carrying out my own research studies."
"I believe the insider knowledge that I have gained from the PI meeting, and the webinars and conference calls relating to NSF grant writing and employment opportunities will give my early career a boost."
Each applicant must be sponsored by a PI or Co-PI on a current DR K-12 project.
