AERA Seeks Applications for Education Research Using Large Scale Data Sets

The American Educational Research Association has announced the continuation of its AERA grants program, which provides small grants and training for researchers who conduct studies of education policy and practice using quantitative methods, including the analysis of data from the large-scale data sets sponsored by the National Center for Education Statistics and National Science Foundation.

Support is available in two categories:

1) Research Grants are available for faculty at institutions of higher education, postdoctoral researchers, and other doctoral-level scholars. Applications are encouraged from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to education, sociology, economics, psychology, demography, statistics, and psychometrics. Approximately fifteen grants of up to $20,000 for one-year projects, or up to $35,000 for two-year projects will be awarded.

2) Dissertation Grants are available for advanced doctoral students and are intended to support the student while writing the doctoral dissertation. AERA invites education-related dissertation proposals using NCES, NSF, and other federal databases. Applicants may be United States citizens, U.S. permanent residents, or non-U.S. citizens, and must be working at a U.S. institution. Approximately fifteen grants of up to $20,000 each will be awarded for one-year projects.

Visit the AERA website for complete program information and application requirements.
