Current Gap Year Research Efforts

These are our current research efforts, pioneered by the Gap Year Association's Research Committee. Each year we hold awards at our annual conference to highlight the pioneering research being done in the gap year space, with the 2017 award going to Corinne Guidi, PhD, for her efforts to better understand the qualitative outcomes from our 2015 National Alumni Survey. The award is named after Karl Haigler, our emeritus Board Member and director of the GYA Research Committee.

We have ONE PRINCIPAL STUDY ONGOING and invite your support to respond, share, and support:
