To this end, AEFP is pleased to announce a new initiative: policymaker and practitioner conference subsidies. Subsidies will help cover the conference and membership fees and/or travel costs of policymakers and practitioners wishing to attend AEFP’s 42nd Annual Conference on March 16 to 18, 2017, at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel in Washington, DC.
The Association of Education Finance and Policy (AEFP) supports several grants and awards programs.
AEFP seeks to recognize the academic contributions of the researchers in our journal, Education Finance and Policy. We are very pleased to announce the inception of the Thomas A. Downes Award for the best article published in EFP in the prior calendar year. A committee of EFP referees and editors will make the selection, to be announced at the first general session of the Annual Conference.
The American Educational Research Association (AERA) provides AERA Grants, a program that provides small grants, fellowships, and training for researchers who conduct studies of education policy and practice, using quantitative methods. Grant program studies includes data analysis from the large-scale data sets sponsored by National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
