ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The CADRE Fellows program is a competitive fellowship designed to be a capacity-building experience for early career researchers and developers. Fellows learn about DR K-12 research beyond their projects, and network with researchers and developers from across the country. They also gain insights into the NSF and what it takes to be successful and effective researchers and developers. Participation in the Fellowship includes:
- participating in a series of capacity-building activities including webinars, conference calls, and in-person meetings;
- independent work, including preparing for activities and (optional) connecting with informal mentors; and
- collaborating with other Fellows, e.g. preparing a presentation, paper, or conference session proposal together.
Capacity-building activities focus three strands: career pathways, writing for publication, and proposal writing (including a mock proposal review at the National Science Foundation with NSF program directors). Learn more in our CADRE Fellowship at a Glance.
The year of their Fellowship, CADRE Fellows are also invited to attend all DR K-12 network webinars and events. See a draft Calendar of Activities for 2016-17.
