Research and leadership program brings 14 Kazakhstan scholars to CEHD

CEHD International Initiatives is hosting 14 international visiting scholars from Kazakhstan as part of its first Bolashaq Scholars program focused on research and leadership. Scholars are coming from different regions and institutions of Kazakhstan, including Almaty, Nur-Sultan, Pavlodar, and Shymkent. The program is funded by the Bolashaq International Scholarship, a highly prestigious Fellowship in Kazakhstan supported by the government.

The six month program (June 1-November 30) is designed to provide a structured experience that supports scholars in building knowledge and capacity in research methods, innovative teaching approaches, and academic leadership. Designed as a cohort model with individualized experiences, each scholar is paired with one local faculty during their time on campus. As a group, they will participate in organized seminars, workshops, field experiences, and projects and will work one-on-one with the assigned faculty mentor during fall 2022.
