VEST Fellowship Program
Open Doors was initiated in 2021 with funding from the Virginia Education Science Training (VEST) grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The program is also supported by fellows and faculty associated with the VEST program. VEST integrates the use of theoretical models of causal inference from various sciences (e.g., psychology, economics, biostatistics) with research designs, analytic techniques and methods that support causal inferences in studies of school, classroom and program effects.
