Schlottmann: Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship

Christopher Schlottmann has been awarded a Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship for Research Related to Education. This prestigious $20,000 fellowship is awarded to doctoral students who show potential for bringing fresh and constructive perspectives to the history, theory, or practice of education.

Schlottmann, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences in the Professions, is writing a dissertation that will analyze whether or not environmental education has the appropriate educational and ethical foundation to address our current environmental problems.

The Chicago-based Spencer Foundation was established in 1962 to investigate ways in which education can be improved around the world.
