Schubert Research Fellows

Launched in Spring 2021, the Schubert Research Fellows program is a collaboration between the Schubert Center and the Emerging Scholars Program (ESP), which provides academic support, intensive advising, professional development and a strong peer network to underrepresented CWRU students from the Cleveland area.  The Research Fellows gain valuable research experience and mentorship by working with one of the Schubert Center's Faculty, Research or Child Associates on child or adolescent research.  Students are accepted into the program through a competitive application process. 

The goals of the Schubert Research Fellows program are:

  • To provide ESP students with a meaningful research experience that builds their professional skills, strengthens their engagement with ESP and expands their network of academic mentors. 
  • To assist Schubert Center Associates by underwriting the cost of student research assistants.
  • To intentionally strengthen the graduate school/professional pipeline by providing underrepresented students with opportunities for career exploration and networking, and to support them financially with a paid research experience.
  • To create a model for other centers/offices on campuses to develop their own “laboratory” working experiences for students.
