DLC Fellows Program
The Digital Learning Collaborative (DLC) provides opportunities for educators to take part in conducting research and developing resources for best practices and strategies in digital learning practices, including but not limited to online and blended learning. Most DLC Fellows Program opportunities are accompanied by a stipend. Current and past DLC Fellows are highlighted below.
When opportunities are available, they will be shared below under “Current Fellows Program Opportunities” as well as in the DLC biweekly newsletter, which you can sign up for here.
If you’d like more information about the DLC Fellows Program, please email Kathryn Kennedy at email@example.com.

Snapshot 2020 - Call for Project Proposals
For the Snapshot 2020 report (see Snapshot 2019 report), we invite proposals for projects that help the field understand a broad element of mainstream district digital learning. For example, broad questions, such as how many districts have online credit recovery many mainstream district students are taking a fully online course? or How does digital software usage vary (quantitatively) between grade levels, subject areas, etc? Sampling is welcome, or data mining as well if there are good sources. Also, the sample doesn't have to be nationally representative of all districts if you can make a reasonable assumption that the sample applies to some larger group, like urban districts, for instance.
For this call, we are not looking for narrow projects, such as projects limited to a grade level or subject area or anything specific to a single state unless there’s a convincing argument it’s nationally representative, or anything specific about instructional practice effectiveness.
The DLC will review proposals that are submitted. We welcome proposal budgets between $2,500 and $10,000.
Based on review, funded projects will be featured in Snapshot 2020, will be publishable in other venues, and will also receive an invite to present at the Digital Learning Annual Conference February 24-26 in Austin, Texas. Funding for DLAC travel is not included, so if necessary, please include that in budget proposal. Proposals should be no more than five pages. Please include link to CV.
Proposals (approximately one page) are due no later than July 26, and winning proposals will be notified by August 9. Write-ups of no more than five pages will be due by November 1.
If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact Kathryn Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
