Reading and Literacy Education boasts a dynamic body of promising graduate students who come from diversely rich academic, professional and cultural backgrounds.
They work closely with program faculty in a variety of teaching, research and service activities that further develop their scholarships of discovery, integration, teaching, and engagement and that enhance their competitiveness for the job market upon graduation.
Past graduates have won prestigious national and international awards (e.g. International Reading Association Outstanding Dissertation Award, the National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Adolescent Literacy Predoctoral Fellowship, Kappa Delta Pi Scholarships), as well as awards from UF (e.g. Grinter Fellowship, Alumni Fellowship) and College of Education (e.g. Outstanding Graduate Research Award, Graduate Student Teaching Award). They have landed jobs in institutions of higher education, federal and state departments of education, PreK-12 schools, and other education-related agencies.
