Doctoral Students Eligible to Receive $25,000 Fellowship for Multidisciplinary Research
To increase the diversity of perspectives in research regarding young children, the Buffett Institute encourages applications from scholars from historically disadvantaged or underrepresented groups, including individuals of color, first-generation college graduates, and individuals from low-income communities.
Scholars will work with their faculty mentors on a dissertation that represents an in-depth exploration of early childhood-related research. The Institute will create opportunities for scholars and mentors to communicate, network, and collaborate with one another.
Three students received grants for the 2019-20 academic year: Alethea Chiappone, a student in the College of Public Health, Department of Health Promotion, at the University of Nebraska Medical Center; Elizabeth Preas, a psychology student at the Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center; and Yinbo Wu, a psychology student at the University of Nebraska ̶ Lincoln.
Full applications for the 2020-21 academic year are due on Tuesday, March 31. The 2020-21 award winners will be announced by the end of June.
