To accomplish its work, the Marie Fielder Center selects current doctoral students to serve as Fielder Graduate Fellows. These individuals are selected through a competitive process from the university’s doctoral student body based upon the quality of their proposed research that is in alignment with the Fielder Center’s goals. Fielder Graduate Fellows typically serve for two years, during which they are engaged on a project that brings together their own research interests and the goals of the Fielder Center.

Fielder Graduate Fellows receive research and grant development mentoring and professional development, meet regularly as a cohort and participate in events of the Fielder Center at national Sessions. In addition to their research, they are engaged in seeking opportunities for external funding, publication, and presentations on their work.

In September 2018, Fielder Graduate Fellows conducted an online panel discussion of their work for alumni and other interested participants. You can learn more about these Fellows’ projects by viewing the recorded webinar here.

Watch as the Fielder Graduate Fellows present and discuss the results of their project research, and share their experiences and commitment to making a difference.
