May 30, 2017


Tikia K. Hamilton *15 has been chosen as a 2017 National Academy of Education/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellow. The fellowship award of $70,000 is intended to assist with the fellow’s salary replacement and research expenses for the fellowship period. This year, thirty fellows were selected from a competitive pool of over 200 applications from scholars of education. The fellowships are administered by the National Academy of Education, an honorary educational society, and they are funded by a grant to the Academy from the Spencer Foundation. Now in its 31st year, the fellowship program has over eight hundred alumni who include many of the strongest education researchers in the field today.

The Academy believes the fellowships enhance the future of education research by developing new talent in the many disciplines and fields represented by the scholars selected. These fellowships are the oldest source of support for education research, nationally and internationally, for recent recipients of the doctorate.
