Congratulations to the The Paul P. Fidler Research Grant Winner - National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition

This year, I worked with a team of individuals from my university to write a grant focused on the experiences of senior-year college students who are seeking post-graduation employment. Unfortunately, the proposal was not funded, but I am excited to see the results from the other researchers who submitted proposals!

The winner of the Paul P. Fidler grant from the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition was Mauriell Amechi of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His study titled “Our Stories (Un)Told: Community Cultural Wealth and the College-Going Experiences of Transitioning Youth in Foster Care". His study will “address barriers associated with college choice and enrollment for populations in foster care.” We look forward to his exemplary research and the contributions he will make to the knowledge base on students in transition. Congratulations! I cannot wait to hear more about your research!

The other finalists for the 2017-2018 Fidler Grant were:
Linda DeAngelo of the University of Pittsburgh: “Self-efficacy in the transition into and through the first college year for women engineering students”

Ryan Hudes of Seton Hall University and Katherine Aquino of Manhattan College: “Student-College Matching Tendencies and Mobility for Students Transferring Within Four-year Institutions”

Cindy Ann Kilgo and Lauren Bennett of the University of Alabama: “Examining TRANSition: An Overview of Inclusive Practices to Support Transgender Students’ Success in College”

Kim McAloney of Oregon State University: “What am I Doing Here?!: An FYE Course in which first generation college students study first generation college students”

We received some great feedback about the grant and we cannot wait to revise!
