The Uhrmacher Scholarship was created in honor of Dr. P. Bruce Uhrmacher by a group of his former graduate students. The main goal of the Uhrmacher scholarship reflects his educational philosophy; namely it seeks to support and mentor graduate students while nurturing their creative ideas in the field of Curriculum and Instruction. The award is dedicated to preserving the open sharing of fresh ideas and to helping students artfully express these ideas at the American Association for Teaching & Curriculum (AATC) annual conference. Awards are given to proposals related to important themes in 21st century education, specifically Arts and Aesthetics, Diversity, Ecology, Spirituality, Human Development, Curriculum Theory, Alternative Schooling, Qualitative Research and others. Students seeking an award will be required to submit a proposal application to the annual meeting of AATC (for more information please see http://www.aatchome.org).
This scholarship will be awarded annually and is open to all Morgridge College of Education (MCE) doctoral students.
The Uhrmacher Scholar will receive:
mentoring from Professor Uhrmacher and from MCE alumni,
a financial stipend to support travel to the American Association for Teaching and Curriculum conference.
support in organizing a presentation,
support in preparing a manuscript for submission to Curriculum and Teaching Dialogue, the peer-reviewed annual journal published by AATC.
