MACIE Research and Grants

Students and faculty in the MACIE program regularly present at national and international conferences, publish research in academic journals, and receive research and professional grants to further their research and scholarship. 

MACIE Faculty are active in the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES), American Educational Research Association (AERA), and other academic associations relevant to their individual research, including the American Psychological Association, the History of Education Society, International Standing Conference on the History of Education (ISCHE), among others.

MACIE Faculty and Students lead and participate in a wide variety of grants and projects, including those supported by the US Department of State (Mandela-Washington Fellowship Young African Leaders Initiative Civic Leadership Institute, 2017, and Teaching Excellence and Achievement Project, 2013-present); The Spencer Foundation (Adolescent Academic Context Study), The John Templeton Foundation, EducationUSA, and Fulbright Teaching and Research Projects, and Fulbright-Hays. 

MACIE Students have presented at CIES and a variety of regional and on-campus conferences. BGSU hosts many small conferences each year, giving students opportunities to present original research to audiences with a range of interests.
