Census Bureau, the National Institutes of Health, or other federal agencies. If international data sets are used, the study must include U. This federal investment has produced state-level data from pre-K to grade 12, through higher education, and into the workforce. Many SLDS are available for analysis and can be used to address salient issues in education research or linked with other data sets.
Data Set Access The data set s of interest must be available for analysis at the time of application. Use of public or restricted-data files is permissible. Prior to receiving funding, students must provide documentation that they have permission to use the data for the research project. In many cases, graduate students will gain access to restricted files through a faculty member or senior scholar.
Data Sharing All data or data-related products produced under the AERA Grants Program must be shared and made available consonant with ethical standards for the conduct of research. Grantees are expected to place article-related data,  codebook or coding procedures, algorithms, code, and so forth in an accessible archive at the time of publication. AERA provides guidance to facilitate the data sharing and archiving process.
The funds can be used for research-related expenses such as tuition, living expenses, travel to secure data enclaves or scholarly conferences, books, computer equipment, and other expenses directly related to conducting this research. As part of the proposal, applicants provide a budget that outlines anticipated research-related expenses.
AERA encourages cost sharing from universities in the form of tuition assistance, office space, university fees, and other expenses. During this 2-day conference grantees will participate in seminar-type sessions on substantive, methodological, and professional issues. Also, they will have the opportunity to network and interact with the Grants Program Governing Board, senior scholars and researchers, other graduate students who use large-scale datasets in their research, and representatives from key federal agencies such as the National Center for Educational Statistics, the National Science Foundation, and the U.
Department of Education. The award will cover all travel and lodging expenses for grantees to participate in the conference. Each spring AERA holds its Annual Meeting which brings together over 15, researchers, scholars, and policy leaders to present their research, share knowledge, and build research capacity through over 2, substantive sessions. The grantees will present their research in an invited poster session along with other graduate students who received dissertation support from AERA and other prestigious fellowship programs.
Finally, grantees will participate in a Capstone conference directly after the Annual Meeting that will address issues such as building a research agenda, searching for a faculty appointment, and publishing research.
Grantees must include travel and lodging expenses to the Annual Meeting in their budget. Project Dates AERA is flexible on research project start dates, depending on what is best for the applicant. The earliest date a grant may start is approximately three months following the application deadline.
Alternatively, an award start date several months or more after that may be requested. Students should have a dissertation prospectus approved prior to submitting a dissertation improvement grant.
This will prevent a situation in which a student receives an award for a project that no longer aligns with his or her dissertation. If the research for which support is requested involves human subjects, submitters are urged to begin the process of securing IRB approval when they submit their proposals to the NSF. Students should work closely with their sponsored research offices and carefully follow the grant proposal guidelines to avoid having their proposals returned without review.
In addition to topics in religious studies or in ethics philosophical or religious , dissertations appropriate to the Newcombe Fellowship competition might explore the ethical implications of foreign policy, the values influencing political decisions, the moral codes of other cultures, and religious or ethical issues reflected in history or literature.
Eligibility - be in the writing stage of the dissertation and never held a similar national award for the final year of dissertation writing. Eligibility - completion of all pre-dissertation requirements and expected completion of Ph.
Eligibility - applicants must be Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows. The grants provide eligible graduate students with the financial means to complete their research prior to the start of dissertation writing.
This program aims to encourage timely completion of the Ph. Applicants must be prepared to complete their dissertations within the period of their fellowship tenure or shortly thereafter. Award - 65 Fellowships for a one-year term. The Fellowship tenure may be carried out in residence at the Fellow's home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site for the research.For domestic travel, information available from the General Services Administration may be helpful. HFGF places a priority on the study of urgent problems of violence and aggression in the modern world as it relates to eight priority areas discussed on the website here. This program aims to encourage timely completion of the Ph. Funding Disbursement Funding will be linked to the approval of the progress report and final report. Eligibility - currently enrolled graduate students who will have completed all requirements for the doctorate except the dissertation. Is the applicant qualified to carry out the proposed study?
Existing sub-scales provided by NCES or other agencies may not be appropriate for the proposed construct. Among the many research topics supported are: social cognition, attitudes, social and cultural influence, stereotypes, motivation, decision making, group dynamics, aggression, close relationships, social and affective neuroscience, social psychophysiology, emotions, prosocial behavior, health-related behavior, and personality and individual differences.
Applicants should be familiar with statistical methods and available computer programs that allow for sophisticated analyses of the selected data.
Use of public or restricted-data files is permissible. Data Set Access The data set s of interest must be available for analysis at the time of application. It emphasizes the advanced statistical analysis of data sets from the U. If international data sets are used, the study must include U.
Researchers are expected to engage in open science practices, and deviations from that should be well-justified. For any substantive questions, please do not hesitate to contact the program officers: Scott Barclay and Wendy Martinek Please note that Scott Barclay will continue as an LSS Program Officer for at least the next months. The aim of the program is to advance fundamental knowledge of relevance to STEM policy, foster significant science using education data, and build research capacity in education and learning. Each spring AERA holds its Annual Meeting which brings together over 15, researchers, scholars, and policy leaders to present their research, share knowledge, and build research capacity through over 2, substantive sessions.
Department of Education. Applicants must be prepared to complete their dissertations within the period of their fellowship tenure or shortly thereafter. Applicant Eligibility Dissertation Grants are available for advanced doctoral students and are intended to support the student while analyzing data and writing the doctoral dissertation. The Data Management Plan should articulate how the proposed research will engage with best practices of open science.
Such contact will be most productive by sending a one-page maximum summary with an overview of the planned proposal, which includes a description of intellectual merit and broader impacts. The research may focus on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to such issues as student achievement in STEM, contextual factors in education, educational participation and persistence pre-kindergarten through graduate school , early childhood education and development, postsecondary education, and the STEM workforce and transitions. Also, when planning to use existing sub-scales, the applicant should describe why these sub-scales are appropriate and how they will be applied. AERA provides guidance to facilitate the data sharing and archiving process. Applicants for this one-year, non-renewable award should be advanced doctoral students at the dissertation writing stage, usually the last year of study.
