Meghan Zarnetske Awarded CADRE Fellowship
A STEM Fellowship from the NSF
We are proud to announce that Meghan Zarnetske, a second-year PhD student in ECS,
has been awarded a Community for Advancing Discovery Research in Education (CADRE)
fellowship in STEM education by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The competition
was fierce, and Meghan was awarded 1 of the only 15 awards made this year.
The CADRE fellowship will provide Meghan and fellow CADRE awardees opportunities for capacity-building and networking; they will also learn about career pathways, how to use and disseminate research, secure funding, and build community and collaborations. For 13 years, CADRE had brought together PhD and postdocs from different backgrounds and with diverse research interests but who share a passion and commitment for diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in K-12 STEM education.
“The CADRE Fellows program offers a unique opportunity for early-career researchers to network with and learn from NSF-funded STEM education awardees from across the country,” said EDC’s Catherine McCulloch, who oversees the program along with Terrell Morton and Jenn Stiles. “It’s an honor to coordinate a program that, in part, is focused on broadening participation within the research community.”
