The AERA Grants Program emphasizes the advanced statistical analysis of data sets from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, NSF, and other federal agencies. The program also supports studies using large-scale international data systems (e.g., PISA, PIRLS, or TIMMS) that benefit from U.S. federal government support. In addition, statewide longitudinal administrative data systems enhanced through federal grants are also eligible for consideration.
One-stop shopping for the latest education policy research findings, from early childhood through higher education. The 400+ papers presented at the conference will bear on key policy issues such as improving teacher quality, strengthening accountability systems throughout the education sector, turning around the lowest performing schools and districts, reducing disparities in school discipline, improving the quality of preschool education, and reducing summer melt in college enrollment.
The American Educational Research Association (AERA) announces its 2019–2020 AERA Minority Dissertation Fellowship in Education Research competition for graduate students. This fellowship is targeted for members of racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented in higher education (e.g., African Americans, Alaskan Natives, American Indians, Asian Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, and Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islanders). This program provides mentoring and funding support to develop research skills and conduct studies in education related fields and topics. The deadline for submitting an application is November 1, 2018.
An informational webinar will be offered on Thursday, September 20, 2018 (3:00pm – 4:00pm EST) in order to discuss the Minority Fellowship in Education Research program’s goals, the application process, and details about the competition. This webinar will be recorded and will become available through AERA’s Virtual Research Learning Center (AERA-VRLC).
Nanci Babigian, wife of George, the long-time executive director of the association and emeritus executive director, passed away in late January (https://yourtraditionsfuneralhome.com/obit/505). She devoted many hours to keeping the organization going, especially during annual conferences when she ran the registration desk and ensured that sessions ran smoothly. She also served as the unofficial hostess at countless meetings, both formal and informal, of the association's board.
