Dr. Kelchen was recently awarded a grant from the William T. Grant Foundation for $204,528. His research is on Examining the Impact of Variations in Performance-Based Funding Policies on Reducing Inequality in Student Outcomes. Please click here to read all about the project. You can also find out more at his website located here.
I spoke with him briefly in his office, he said the project came about as the result of having a conversation with colleagues at a conference! This serves as a perfect example for us graduate students on why it is important to attend conferences. You just never know what will happen when you meet people with similar passions.
Finally, if you are interested in doing research or getting involved, Dr. Kelchen said please feel free to drop him a line.
