Doctoral students Melissa Bradford and Kendrick Johnson learned last spring that they had both been selected for the two coveted Ikeda Education Fellowships from the Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Education Fellows Program was established by the Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue in 2007. The program aims to advance research and scholarship on Soka Education, an emerging field of study in humanistic education. Fellows receive two years of funding at $10,000 per year and dissertation advising from leading scholars in educational philosophy, including Nel Noddings and David Hansen. This is the first time two individuals from the same institution received the award in the same year.
