Since 1991, this AERA Program has been vital to both research and training at early career stages.
The Grants Program encourages the use of major data sets from multiple and diverse sources.
With support from the National Science Foundation, the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Grants Program seeks proposals for Dissertation Grants.
The AERA Grants Program provides advanced graduate students with research funding and professional development and training.
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.
The program supports highly competitive dissertation research using rigorous quantitative methods to examine large-scale, education-related data.
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.
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.
