The Wing Institute is launching a new initiative to provide funding for graduate students who are interested in doing research in the area of evidence-based education.
The purpose of the initiative is to
- promote new research in areas of evidence-based education,
- promote new research across disciplines,
- encourage graduate students to focus their future professional work in this subject area
- disseminate research findings for application in “real world” settings, further bridging the gap between research and practice.
Grants vary in size; the maximum grant is $5,000 per annum. These funds will be available to recipients as they achieve agreed upon “benchmarks” in the research process.
