With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the American Educational Research Association (AERA) has announced a Research Grants Program.
The program supports highly competitive studies using rigorous quantitative methods to examine large-scale, education-related data. This research and training program is designed to advance knowledge and build research capacity in education and STEM education and learning. Since 1991, this AERA Program has been vital to both research and training at early career stages.
The Grants Program is open to field-initiated research and welcomes proposals that:
- develop or benefit from advanced statistical or innovative quantitative methods or measures;
- analyze more than one large-scale national or international federally funded data set, or more than one statewide longitudinal data system (SLDS) or incorporate other data enhancements;
- integrate, link, or blend multiple large-scale data sources; or
- undertake replication research of major findings or major studies using large-scale, federally supported or enhanced data.
Awards for Research Grants are up to $25,000 for 1 year projects, or up to $35,000 for 2 year projects. In accordance with AERA’s agreement with the funding agencies, institutions may not charge indirect costs or overhead on these awards.
- Research Grants are available for faculty at institutions of higher education, postdoctoral researchers, and other doctoral level scholars.
- Proposals are encouraged from the full range of education research fields and other fields and disciplines engaged in education-related research, including economics, political science, psychology, sociology, demography, statistics, public policy, and psychometrics.
- Applicants for this one-year or two-year, non-renewable award must have received their doctoral degree at the start of the award.
- Applicants may be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. Non-U.S. citizens affiliated with a U.S. university or institution are also eligible to apply.
- Underrepresented racial and ethnic minority researchers as well as women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
