Early Career Researchers & Graduate Students

CREATE has a history of welcoming and promoting research in these areas: educational assessment or evaluation research, policy, or practice by our community members. We offer annual programming for graduate students and early career researchers at our conference.
Doctoral Student Poster Session
The doctoral student poster session is an excellent way for early in their career researchers to present at CREATE and receive feedback from consortium members. Often our Millman Award Recipients peruse the doctoral student poster sessions offering feedback. CREATE is the place where you can talk directly to leading scholars.
During the doctoral student poster session, early career researchers have the opportunity to present work, receive beneficial feedback, and be considered for the CREATE Achilles-Harper-Swenson Emerging Researcher Award. The CREATE Achilles-Harper-Swenson Emerging Researcher Award was created in 2013 by the CREATE Board of Directors to honor three educational researchers who profoundly influenced the field. This award is given at our annual CREATE conference. Learn more about the CREATE Achilles-Harper-Swenson Emerging Researcher Award.
Graduate Student Scholarships
CREATE offers Graduate Student Scholarships for students who present at the CREATE conference. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to cover your registration fee, complete an application.
Community Service Project
Graduate students bring together consortium members and a local school with the Community Service Project annually at our CREATE conference.
