Call for Applications: CRA-E Graduate Fellows Program


CRA Education Logo

The Computing Research Association Education Committee (CRA-E) is now accepting applications for the CRA-E Graduate Fellows Program. The program provides opportunities for Ph.D. candidates in computing fields to contribute to CRA-E projects, network with computer science education advocates on the committee, engage in advocacy for mentoring undergraduate students and promote undergraduate research and education at the national level.

CRA-E plans to appoint up to two graduate fellows per year, who will serve as members of the committee, providing a voice for graduate students. The fellows will attend the annual CRA-E meeting (travel expenses funded by CRA-E), serve on a CRA-E subcommittee related to their interests and expertise, and contribute to the CRA-E Conquer site that provides resources for undergraduate research and applying to graduate school.

In 2016, CRA-E selected two Ph.D. students, Keith Feldman (Notre Dame University) and Max Grossman (Rice University), to serve as Fellows. Both Fellows have a history of mentoring undergraduates and advising them on pursuing graduate school and research. Click here to view a profile on the Fellows.

Faculty members are invited to nominate a graduate student by January 30, 2017.  More information for students and nominators is available at http://cra.org/crae/activities/fellows/.

Please nominate a graduate student and encourage your colleagues to do so, too!
