National Academy of Education Invites Applications for Research Fellowships

The National Academy of Education advances high-quality education research and its use in policy formation and practice. Founded in 1965, the academy comprises U.S. members and foreign associates who are elected on the basis of outstanding scholarship related to education.

As part of that mission, the NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports early career scholars working in critical areas of education research. The non-residential postdoctoral fellowship program aims to fund proposals that will lead to significant scholarly contributions to the field and help develop the careers of its recipients through professional development activities involving National Academy of Education members.

Fellows receive $70,000 for one academic year of research, or $35,000 for each of two contiguous years, working half-time, and will be included in professional development retreats with other fellows and NAEd members. Fellowships must begin during the 2016-17 academic year.

The program is open to all eligible applicants regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation. Applicants must have received their Ph.D., Ed.D., or equivalent research degree between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2014. In addition, all applicants should have a demonstrated record of research experience in education.

For complete program guidelines, information about a pre-recorded informational webinar, an FAQ, and application instructions, visit the NAEd website.
