The NCTE Research Foundation Cultivating New Voices program is designed to provide support, mentoring, and networking opportunities for early career scholars of color. The program aims to work with graduate students and early career scholars of color to cultivate their ability to draw from their own cultural/linguistic perspectives as they conceptualize, plan, conduct, and write their research. The program provides socialization into the research community and interaction with established scholars whose own work can be enriched by their engagement with new ideas and perspectives.
A minimum of ten fellows will be selected through a competitive proposal process. Anyone submitting a proposal would need to meet the following requirements:
(a) a member of NCTE
(b) seeking a doctorate or within two years of completion of a doctorate
(c) a member of an underrepresented group
(d) and reside within the United States
Overview of Application Deadline and Materials
The next 2-year CNV program will begin in 2012 and the deadline for proposal submissions is March 15, 2012. Fellowships will be announced by the end of May. An outline of all materials to be submitted is found in the Proposal Guidelines. One typed copy of the Cover Sheet should be submitted along with your research proposal (to include abstract and narrative). The information requested is intended to give the Trustees an overview of your proposal.
Please provide a brief description of your trajectory as a scholar up to this point and how mentoring and participation would benefit your scholarship in a community of scholars in the next two years.
