Testimonials from past GAMER mentees


“GAMER demystified the process of grant-writing.  It gives a comprehensive view of all the elements of education research and the scholarship opportunities and resources associated with that.”  2022 Mentee


“I was able to take many of the concepts that I learned to other projects and in other ways.  GAMER allowed me to participate in several different national research groups on projects that I would not have had (before GAMER) the skills to dive that deeply.  Recently, I used the skills from GAMER to gain a grant worth 1.1 million dollars over 5 years.  This could be attributed to GAMER:  Writing good AIMS, describing methodology, creating a needs statement that defines your hook. These skills can be applied in many different ways.”   2018 Mentee

“When I first came to GAMER, I felt isolated as a researcher.  GAMER really breaks that down.  There is not a hierarchy, no attitudes.  It is a safe space to acknowledge that we are all here as education researchers.  It was the start of a great network of support.”    2021 Mentee

“As part of the virtual GAMER experience, it was incredibly meaningful.  When I entered GAMER, I had an idea for my EdD dissertation research.  By the end, I had a much better idea.  I was encouraged by my mentors to look at my original idea in a different way.”  2021 Mentee

“GAMER helped me to recognize that I am a researcher, and that my research is important.  It was an empowering experience.”  2019 Mentee
