Scholarship will help doctoral student forge COE-Thailand virtual connection

UF social studies education doctoral student Jason Schipper was recently awarded a $2,750 scholarship from the Kappa Delta Pi Educational Foundation. The scholarship is based on transcripts, involvement in Kappa Delta Pi and a written essay. A review committee selected Schipper from applicants around the country.

Kappa Delta Pi is an international education honor society comprised of more than 40,000 students, teachers, professionals and school staff members and administrators from around the world.

Schipper, a social studies methods instructor at UF’s College of Education, received the honor society’s Gerald H. Read Laureate Scholarship in International and Comparative Education. He will use the scholarship to fund research and technology in a program that will connect his pre-service students with elementary school classrooms in Thailand. Through this exchange, the pre-service teacher candidates will interact virtually with the students as they develop lesson plans and assignments for the Thai classrooms.
