The Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Evaluation (IDPE) at Western Michigan University (WMU) is accepting applications for Fall 2019. The IDPE is dedicated to developing evaluation scholars and practitioners who have a deep knowledge of evaluation theory, methodology, and practice as well as superior critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
We are excited to announce that starting in Fall 2019, a limited number of associateships are available to doctoral students with a demonstrated interest in STEM education evaluation and/or research on evaluation in the 2-year college environment. These annually renewable associateships will include tuition, fees, and a stipend.
The WMU Evaluation Center is home to EvaluATE, the evaluation support center for the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program. In operation since 2008, EvaluATE (www.evalu-ate.org) recently received a new five-year grant that will support two doctoral associates from the IDPE program to work on the grant. Being admitted to the IDPE program is the first step toward consideration for an EvaluATE associateship.
If you’re passionate about research on evaluation and have an interest in or experience evaluating STEM education in the 2-year college environment, we want to hear from you. Start your application today.
Applications requesting financial support, including these associateships, are due February 1, 2019. So, don’t delay.
