CADRE is now accepting applications for Fellows for 2014–2015.
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 the NSF and what it takes to be successful and effective researchers and developers, and network with DR K-12 PIs and Fellows from across the country.
Comments from previous Fellows on the experience include:
“Being a CADRE Fellow has bolstered my confidence in general and in my ability to be a funded STEM Ed researcher. I met so many helpful PIs who pointed me toward colleagues of theirs at the university where I accepted a faculty position.”
“I think that I feel more confident to approach other researchers and faculty members who have similar interests across different domains (science, math, and technology) and engage in dialogue with them. I think this will help my confidence in the long run.”
“I think the networking and ‘inside look’ at grant writing for NSF provides me with great advantages for my future career.”
“The whole experience definitely has helped and will continue to help me in building my career as a researcher and educator. I am very impressed by the experiences we were given and the connections with professionals in the field that were made available to us.”
Each applicant must be nominated by a PI or Co-PI on a current DR K-12 project. Preference will be given to applicants who have worked on their project for at least a year.
