RFCUNY Brown Bag Research Webinars: The Spencer Foundation

December 6, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

The Spencer Foundation works to investigate ways in which education can be improved around the world. There is a great dedication to research, as it is necessary for the improvement of education. The Spencer Foundation supports research programs in high-quality investigations of education. By awarding research grants, and fellowships the foundation strengthens the connections in education research, policy and practice through communications and networking. The foundation awards a series of prestigious fellowships to early career education researchers, typically pre-tenured professors at research institutions. Each fellowship is for a total of $55,000 and is for one or two years depending on the preference of the recipient. The fellowship relieves the researcher from a year’s worth of teaching responsibilities to pursue an innovative and important education research project. The foundation also awards a series of prestigious fellowships to doctoral students completing dissertation research in any area of education research. Each fellowship is for $25,000 and supports individuals in the final year of their doctoral training.

Targeted Audience: All CUNY Faculty and Doctoral students engaged in research and training on educational research and research on quality learning; racial and justice equity; human work and learning; state and federal policy.
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY APPS and Xia Li, Associate Professor, Early Childhood Education, Brooklyn College
