Early Career Work and Family Scholars Program

Applications are due on June 1, 2013.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 Early Career Scholars program. The Work and Family Researchers Network is committed to mentoring the next generation of work and family scholars. Our Early Career Scholars Program (ECS) provides supports for recent doctoral recipients to advance their research, teaching, and long-term career prospects. By offering networked resources and consultation, we help promising new scholars move into tenured appointments and secure senior-level positions, as well as engage them with the work and family community of scholars. This program builds on three successful cohorts supported by the former Sloan Work and Family Research Network. Fifteen scholars will be selected. Candidates must have received their doctorate in 2010 or later, and have yet to progress into tenured or secure senior level positions. Those anticipating receipt of their doctoral degree by June 2013 are eligible to apply. Application is not restricted on the basis of location. All participants are required to attend the WFRN conference to be held June 19-21, 2014 in New York City. Participants receive $1,000 to defer travel expenses. At that conference, special events will be targeted to serve their interests, such as networking opportunities with senior scholars and other career development activities. In addition, they will be connected with one another in periodic encounters beyond the conference, designed to facilitate collaboration, peer-mentorship, guidance on teaching, and development of research programs. To apply for the ECS, go here.

Dear Directors of Graduate Study:

My name is Kevin Wendt. I am the Vice President for Grants for the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA) and am writing you today to inform you about a great opportunity for your students to receive financial support to attend professional development opportunities.

This year we created the Professional Travel Grant to complement our already existing (and extremely popular) Scholarly Travel Grant. As opposed to providing financial support to Graduate students to attend conferences to present their research, as the Scholarly Travel Grant does, the Professional Travel Grant was created to provide financial support to Professional students so that they may attend opportunities that will give them valuable development in their careers.

Please find additional information below. If you could help us get the word out to your students, we (and they!) would greatly appreciate it!

More information is below and any questions that students or you may have about this wonderful opportunity are always welcomed.

Thank you again!!!

Graduate Student Scholarships for Guy Bond Memorial Conference on Struggling Readers

The Center for Reading Research will provide 10 - 20 awards to graduate students to enable them to attend the Bond Conference on Interventions for Struggling Readers at no cost. The conference is scheduled for October 10-11 at the University of Minnesota Continuing Education Center on the St Paul campus. The Bond conference will bring in many of the nation's experts on development of reading skills and on instructional interventions to use with students (especially students with limited English proficiency or disabilities) who struggle learning to read. The agenda for the conference is available at www.education.umn.edu/reading.

Attendance at the Bond Conference will provide our graduate students with a very unique opportunity to hear so many outstanding professionals focus on what their research says about how to intervene with struggling readers. The conference provides considerable opportunity for discussion among participants, and our students would gain from an opportunity to interact with area teachers, reading specialists and professors. We are offering these awards as an incentive to enable as many students as possible to attend the meeting. The cost of the meeting is $60 and this cost will be waived for students who are selected for the awards.

To apply for these awards, students must submit a one paragraph statement (maximum 250 words) indicating why they believe they should be selected and how they would benefit from attendance at this meeting. Individuals who have previously registered and who are selected for this scholarship will have the cost of registration refunded. Those selected for the award are expected to attend the full conference, attending all day on Monday and Tuesday October 10-11.

The deadline for application is 5 pm Tuesday September 27. Applications should be submitted by email to Professor Jim Ysseldyke, Co-Director of the Reading Research Center. The email address is jim@umn.edu. Any questions should be directed to that same email address.

Early Career Work and Family Scholars Program

Applications are due on June 1, 2013.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 Early Career Scholars program. The Work and Family Researchers Network is committed to mentoring the next generation of work and family scholars. Our Early Career Scholars Program (ECS) provides supports for recent doctoral recipients to advance their research, teaching, and long-term career prospects. By offering networked resources and consultation, we help promising new scholars move into tenured appointments and secure senior-level positions, as well as engage them with the work and family community of scholars. This program builds on three successful cohorts supported by the former Sloan Work and Family Research Network. Fifteen scholars will be selected. Candidates must have received their doctorate in 2010 or later, and have yet to progress into tenured or secure senior level positions. Those anticipating receipt of their doctoral degree by June 2013 are eligible to apply. Application is not restricted on the basis of location. All participants are required to attend the WFRN conference to be held June 19-21, 2014 in New York City. Participants receive $1,000 to defer travel expenses. At that conference, special events will be targeted to serve their interests, such as networking opportunities with senior scholars and other career development activities. In addition, they will be connected with one another in periodic encounters beyond the conference, designed to facilitate collaboration, peer-mentorship, guidance on teaching, and development of research programs. To apply for the ECS, go here.

Dear Directors of Graduate Study:

My name is Kevin Wendt. I am the Vice President for Grants for the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA) and am writing you today to inform you about a great opportunity for your students to receive financial support to attend professional development opportunities.

This year we created the Professional Travel Grant to complement our already existing (and extremely popular) Scholarly Travel Grant. As opposed to providing financial support to Graduate students to attend conferences to present their research, as the Scholarly Travel Grant does, the Professional Travel Grant was created to provide financial support to Professional students so that they may attend opportunities that will give them valuable development in their careers.

Please find additional information below. If you could help us get the word out to your students, we (and they!) would greatly appreciate it!

More information is below and any questions that students or you may have about this wonderful opportunity are always welcomed.

Thank you again!!!

Graduate Student Scholarships for Guy Bond Memorial Conference on Struggling Readers

The Center for Reading Research will provide 10 - 20 awards to graduate students to enable them to attend the Bond Conference on Interventions for Struggling Readers at no cost. The conference is scheduled for October 10-11 at the University of Minnesota Continuing Education Center on the St Paul campus. The Bond conference will bring in many of the nation's experts on development of reading skills and on instructional interventions to use with students (especially students with limited English proficiency or disabilities) who struggle learning to read. The agenda for the conference is available at www.education.umn.edu/reading.

Attendance at the Bond Conference will provide our graduate students with a very unique opportunity to hear so many outstanding professionals focus on what their research says about how to intervene with struggling readers. The conference provides considerable opportunity for discussion among participants, and our students would gain from an opportunity to interact with area teachers, reading specialists and professors. We are offering these awards as an incentive to enable as many students as possible to attend the meeting. The cost of the meeting is $60 and this cost will be waived for students who are selected for the awards.

To apply for these awards, students must submit a one paragraph statement (maximum 250 words) indicating why they believe they should be selected and how they would benefit from attendance at this meeting. Individuals who have previously registered and who are selected for this scholarship will have the cost of registration refunded. Those selected for the award are expected to attend the full conference, attending all day on Monday and Tuesday October 10-11.

The deadline for application is 5 pm Tuesday September 27. Applications should be submitted by email to Professor Jim Ysseldyke, Co-Director of the Reading Research Center. The email address is jim@umn.edu. Any questions should be directed to that same email address.
