Join us for our first Distinguished Science of Learning Fellowship Showcase

SLI's fellowship program provides funding for pre- and post-doctoral students to enhance their training by (1) conducting interdisciplinary science of learning research and (2) learning to effectively communicate science to the public. As a capstone to their 2-year fellowship, our fellows will showcase their research projects and their approach to disseminating findings to the public.
