Funding Opportunities


Summer 2023 applications coming soon!

CMJ Summer Graduate Interns are funded by CMJ to complete internships with
educational measurement research labs. This grant aims to enhance the racial and
ethnic diversity of faculty and researchers who study topics in measurement, by pairing
each student with a Professor (mentor) in the field. This internship is targeted towards
members of racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented and are interested in
critical scholarship in educational measurement. Interns receive $10,000 for 8-10 weeks
of service each summer.


Are you a professor who would like to host an intern? We are seeking hosts for summer
2023. Intern hosts receive one paid intern interested in critical scholarship in
educational measurement, and a stipend of $5,000 for supporting and mentoring said
intern throughout the summer. Please contact us for more information.



We are pleased to announce that scholarships will be made available to minority
graduate students in the field of educational measurement, to attend the 2023 Annual
Meeting of NCME. The primary goal of the scholarship program is to increase the
representation of minoritized persons working in the field of educational measurement.
The Fellows will receive funding for travel to attend the 2023 Annual meeting in
Chicago, free registration for pre-conference workshops, free NCME conference
registration, and inclusion in a series of professional development activities designed to
support them in navigating a successful trajectory in the educational measurement field
and a network of colleagues and mentors within the field.

Mentorship Faculty Fellows will receive an annual stipend to mentor 3-5 graduate
students from minoritized groups. Mentees do not necessarily attend the faculty fellow’s
institution. CMJ has a strong preference for faculty in the field of measurement with
backgrounds/identities and/or experience working with historically marginalized
populations. The main purpose of the faculty fellowship is to support the next generation
of critical measurement professionals, while valuing the time and expertise of
underrepresented minority faculty who enable these young scholars to flourish.

If you are interested in becoming a CMJ Mentorship Faculty Fellow for the 2022-2023
academic year, please contact us.
