An integral part of CEDAR is the training and education of students as well as providing experience in research.

CEDAR Students

Students are a vital part of CEDAR. Two student representatives are on the CEDAR scientific steering committee providing the student perspective and ensuring that student’s ideas are heard and acted upon. During the yearly CEDAR workshop CEDAR students organize a student workshop day for and with students. The CEDAR students lead social and networking events at the CEDAR workshop to build a community. Approximately a third of the CEDAR workshop participants are students. Students can apply for travel and housing support to attend the CEDAR workshop, which is supported by NSF. To support students with dependent care responsibility and allow them to fully participate in the CEDAR workshop CEDAR offers dependent care grants.
