Congratulations to Jordan Conwell, Assistant Professor of Sociology, for being selected to receive a Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship! This competitive program supports 30 early career scholars working in critical areas of education research. Jordan’s study, “All in the Family: New Perspectives on the Returns to College Quality,” will apply a multigenerational, family perspective to research in the returns to college quality and potential racial and gender difference in those returns.
The fellowship is funded by the Spencer Foundation and administered through the National Academy of Education whose mission is to advance high-quality education research and its use in policy formulation and practice. Fellows take leave from their full-time teaching and administrative duties to work on their research.
