Members of the STAR Scholars Network who identify as an early career or emerging scholar are invited to apply for the STAR Millennium Scholars program, a three-part series of engagements that includes professional development, peer-to-peer support, and perspectives from leading scholars.
The goal is to facilitate the (inter)active engagement of global emerging scholars in order to:
- increase the visibility and impact of their work transnationally
- form new collaborations in research and practice
- deepen engagement with the STAR Scholar Network
- bridge disciplinary and methodological divides that can obscure commonalities among education researchers and practitioners
STAR is dedicated to supporting the advancement of international scholars and graduate students working across borders. This program is designed to support early career academics in non G-20 countries in disseminating their research and scholarship to a global audience. The fellowship will run from 1 September 2021 – 31 November 2021 and provide support for the following activities: developing an article for publication, participating in e-mentoring and networking events with leading scholars, and give and receive feedback on writing through peer-to-peer support.
Advanced graduate students, early career scholars and independent researchers are encouraged to apply if they identify with country or higher education system country with emerging economy (non-G20 country) and teach or research in fields including international education, comparative education, human geography, global studies, linguistics, psychology, sociology, communication, international business, economics, social work, cultural studies, and other related disciplines.
Applications for the STAR Millennium Scholars program will open in June 1 2021. The deadline for applications is July 31 2021.
