Request for proposals for the Amir Lopatin Fund

The School of Education announces an RFP for the Amir Lopatin Fund to support exceptional doctoral research involving technology and education.

Announcing: Request for Proposals (RFP)
Date of announcement: March 25, 2011
Deadline: May 2, 2011
Decision date for award: May 23, 2011

The Stanford University School of Education (SUSE) has established an endowment fund, supported by the generosity of the family and friends of Amir Lopatin, a former Learning Sciences and Technology Design (LSTD) doctoral student. Seven years ago on March 25th, Amir sadly lost his life in an unfortunate automobile accident during Spring Break. His family and over 300 families and friends worked intensively to create a memorial fund in his name to support research in learning sciences and technologies design, which Amir strongly felt held much promise for education. Proceeds from this endowment fund will provide support to a research project of exceptional merit, selected each year from among proposals submitted by SUSE doctoral students in the Learning Sciences and Technology Design (LSTD) program, in line with the criteria described below. In 2011, the third year of this Fellowship, 1 selected proposal will be awarded up to $3,000, to cover research-related expenses (with future amounts dependent on the endowment payout in a given year). The Fellowship will be advertised on a similar calendar each year.
