Students Named David L. Clark Scholars

Graduate School of Education (GSE) doctoral students, Kevin Crouse and Amanda Dillon, have been invited to participate in the 34th Annual David L. Clark National Graduate Student Research Seminar in Educational Administration and Policy.

The Clark Seminar brings emerging educational administration and policy scholars together with noted researchers for two days of presentations, dialogue, professional development, and networking. Sponsored by the University Council for Educational Administration Divisions A and L of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), and SAGE Publications, this year’s seminar will be held prior to the AERA annual meeting in Philadelphia, in April 2014.

Over 100 doctoral students were nominated this year from universities in the United States, Canada, and abroad but only forty were invited to participate. Students are chosen to participate through a rigorous selection process. The faculty must first nominate candidates. Students then develop a detailed research proposal, which outlines salient features of their study. All of the proposals are then blind reviewed and chosen by members of the planning committee.
