The Don E. Ackerman Fellowship in Educational Leadership supports research that advances leadership in education through better understanding or practice. The Fellowship provides funding to support faculty or student research projects that contribute either theoretical or applied knowledge that may potentially change education at the Pre-K through 12 educational levels, in any educational field or educational position. The program is designed to encourage research conducted in the name of the university and contributing to the continuing improvement of teaching and learning through leadership. Fellowship funds are to be used to support the direct cost of research.
The Walden University Research Fellowship in Distance Education provides funding to support research endeavors that contribute both theoretical and applied knowledge to the growing field of distance education. This program is designed to encourage research conducted in the name of the university and to continuously improve the distance education programs at Walden University through research. Fellowship funds are to be used to support the direct cost of conducting research.
Walden realizes that the scholars and social change practitioners within the university community may be engaged in social change activities or have a desire to develop research and applied projects that directly relate to social change. The Research and Applications for Social Change Grant was established to enable members of the Walden community to make a significant and meaningful change in academic and social communities, both locally and globally.
The grant will be awarded to the applicants who submit outstanding proposals that reflect the university’s mission to foster social change through research and the education of scholar-practitioners as well as Walden’s determination to uniquely effect positive social change worldwide.
