The AERA Dissertation Grant application is open
The Dissertation Grant Program is intended to support one year of research conducted as part of the doctoral dissertation requirement and conducted under the guidance of a faculty dissertation advisor. At the time of application, the dissertation should be in the early stage of development. The program supports doctoral grants aimed at increasing the number of researchers using national datasets from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) or National Science Foundation (NSF) and demonstrate the contribution that these datasets make to the national base of knowledge on higher education policy, theory, and practice.
