LIFE offers Graduate Fellowships

The LIFE Science of Learning Center has launched a new graduate fellowship program. It looks like an interesting opportunity for grad students at other institutions to spend a few months in Seattle or Palo Alto working with LIFE researchers.

The LIFE Center has launched a new Graduate Fellowship Program. The program offers a unique opportunity for United States graduate students to spend a period of 3-5 months at a LIFE Center location and participate in LIFE research projects to broaden their understanding of the learning sciences. (Please note that a parallel undergraduate program will also be announced in the near future.)

This is a promising time for those interested in the learning sciences field. New graduate programs are appearing at universities across the globe. New research efforts are leveraging advances in education, psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, computer science, sociology, anthropology, and other allied fields. Future leaders in the learning sciences need deep expertise in a core area of the learning sciences and a general understanding of the many other active areas of research and application. A central goal of the LIFE Center is to provide the necessary breadth of experience for the next generation of researchers in the learning sciences.

To this end we will support up to four graduate students to spend several months between either September through December or January through June at the LIFE Center. There is some flexibility in starting and ending dates, but participants are expected to stay for the entire period for which they have been accepted. Stays of a full year may also be considered.
