After much consideration, the AEFP Board of Directors has decided to discontinue the New Scholar Award. The New Scholar Award was originally intended to foster research using NCES data, but eventually transitioned into an award to acknowledge very early career scholars who are pursing interesting lines of research. As the organization has added both an Early Career Award and a Dissertation Award, the New Scholar award has become somewhat redundant.
We are pleased to have provided support and recognition through the New Scholars award to an illustrious group of scholars who have gone on to do important research on topics related to education policy and finance.
