The David L. Clark National Graduate Student Research Seminar in Educational Administration & Policy, sponsored by the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), Divisions A and L of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), and SAGE Publications, brings emerging educational administration and policy scholars and noted researchers together for presentations, generative discussion, and professional growth. This year’s seminar will be held in-person (tentatively) at the beginning of the 2022 AERA meeting.
Nominations for the David L. Clark National Graduate Student Research Seminar are due 11:59 pm EST Friday, December 10, 2021.
Nominees should be outstanding doctoral students in PK-12 educational leadership and administration and/or PK-16 education policy, seeking careers in research. Nominees must have substantially completed their courses and must have formulated a dissertation proposal. In their statement of research, student nominees are asked to elaborate on the type of developmental support they would like to receive as a Clark Scholar—whether at the early phase of their dissertation or nearing completion. Nominations of students from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged.
Each university may nominate up to two students. Nominations must be accompanied by a student research proposal, and all materials will be submitted online via the UCEA website. The nomination form can be found at https://members.ucea.org/clark/nominations/new.
