Marketa Burnett, graduate student in Developmental Psychology, is the recipient of a 2021 American Educational Research Association Minority Dissertation Fellowship.
The American Educational Research Association (AERA) Council in 1991 established the AERA Minority Dissertation Fellowship in Education Research to enhance the racial and ethnic diversity of faculty, scholars, and researchers who study topics in education research. The Fellowship Program aims to provide support for doctoral dissertation research, to advance education research by outstanding minority graduate students, and to enhance these students competitiveness for academic appointments at major research universities. It supports fellows conducting education research and provides mentoring, capacity building activities, and guidance toward the completion of their doctoral studies. Congratulations, Marketa!
