*** DISSERTATION RESEARCH GRANTS ***
from the U.S. Dept. of Education via AERA:
AERA is pleased to announce a special one-time competition for Dissertation Grants made possible through the support by the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences. Dissertation proposals are encouraged from graduate students in education research and other social and behavioral science disciplines.
Research may address academic outcomes at different education periods: infancy to preschool, K-12, postsecondary, and adult learners. Studies may focus on the improved academic achievement for all students, and particularly for students whose achievement may be disadvantaged by inadequate services and conditions associated with poverty, race/ethnicity, English language learner status, disability, and family circumstance. Supported studies will cover a wide range of education related issues and will invoke rigorous and sound research methods.
Grants are for one year starting by August 15, 2007 and include a stipend
of $15,000 and assistance up to $1,000 to attend and participate in a special
poster session at the 2008 AERA Annual Meeting. Students will be expected to
provide proof of advancement to doctoral candidacy to receive the award.
Members of underrepresented minority groups are
strongly encouraged to apply.
The application deadline has been extended to May 25, 2007; all application
materials must be received by this date. A full description of the program and
