Lindsay Page, associate professor in the School of Education and research scientist in the Learning Research and Development Center, recently received the 2020 Early Career Award from the American Educational Research Association (AERA).
Honoring exemplary research and service in the education research field, the AERA’s Early Career Award is given once a year to a scholar who received his or her doctoral degree within the past 10 years. The winners were announced by AERA on July 22 and will be honored in a virtual ceremony on September 12, 2020.
Founded in 1916, AERA is the largest national interdisciplinary research association devoted to the scientific study of education and learning. Its 25,000-plus members include faculty, researchers, university deans, research directors and higher education administrators.
Among subjects studied by Page is the phenomenon of summer melt in college admissions. Summer melt occurs when college-bound high school students, for a variety of reasons, do not successfully transition to college.
