About the Program
Each year, the program supports 15 to 18 Postsecondary CTE Research Fellows from institutions across the country who are doctoral students (in coursework), entering the dissertation stage of research, or proposing postdoctoral research that aligns with current issues related to the field of postsecondary CTE.
We welcome applicants from a variety of postsecondary institutions and academic disciplines, such as education, economics, sociology and business. This is a hybrid program and relocation is not required to participate.
The Research Fellows programming is 1 year (August-August) and all qualifying Fellows will be provided support to participate in the required research training institutes, ECMC Foundation CTE Collaborative Convening, and to meet with their assigned research mentor. Additionally, Fellows will participate in research methods webinars during the year.
Preference will be given to research proposals that addresses postsecondary CTE in terms of improving student success or using CTE to address larger problems such as economic mobility. Our view of student success uses the pillars of learning, transfer, completion,
equity, and labor market outcomes. Projects can address one or more of these areas. Projects in other areas of postsecondary CTE are encouraged.
