Why WCER Fellows?

As a WCER Fellow you will develop a comprehensive skillset that equips you with the ability to do independent research, you will be supported by a diverse community of both peers and faculty, and have access to leading professionals in various careers.

WCER (Wisconsin Center for Education Research) Fellows are enrolled in any doctoral program in the School of Education. WCER Fellows are guaranteed four years of funding and receive annual travel stipends for research conference attendance.


WCER Fellows will gain a wealth of skills by engagement in a diversity of research experiences, without increasing time to degree completion. Fellows will be immediately and consistently integrated into research projects that allow them to gain experience and generate academic products that will allow Fellows to secure jobs.
