Assistant professor Derron Wallace wins two prestigious fellowships

Derron Wallace, assistant professor of sociology and education, has recently been named an 2022 NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellow by the National Academy of Education, and has also received a Fulbright Scholar Award.

The NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship provides $70,000 to early-career scholars to focus on their research and attend professional development retreats. This year, the 25 postdoctoral fellows were selected from a pool of 258 applicants.

For his Fulbright, Wallace will work on a second major project related to policing in British schools. He will be based in the sociology department of Durham University in northeast England for a year as he engages in that work.

Wallace has been recognized for his work at Brandeis with several university awards, including a Provost’s Research Award and the Michael L. Walzer ’56 Award for Teaching.
