Subject:Dissertation and Research Grants American Educational Research Association

Dear CMRL, See announcement below. The research grants can apply to any large-scale national data – as long as there is an emphasis on educational outcomes/policy. If anyone wanted to apply to use data from NDACAN for this purpose (e.g. using LONGSCAN, NSCAW), we would be happy to support your application in any we can – including a letter of support. There are not a lot of sources of funding for secondary analyses, so something to consider if it fits your research program. John Eckenrode ----- ANNOUNCEMENT: Dear Colleague: Supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Grants Program fosters advanced scientific study of education and learning using large-scale data sets collected or supported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), NSF, or other federal agencies. Currently there are two research initiatives (dissertation grants and research grants) and two institutes (statistics institute for researchers and faculty institute for teaching in the use of large-scale data) with imminent deadlines in January 2011. We want to call your attention to these initiatives and also ask you to forward or post this e-mail to potential applicants. Below are brief descriptions of each initiative. For further information about AERA and the Grants Program, see the AERA website at www.aera.net . AERA Dissertation Grants. AERA provides dissertation support for advanced doctoral students to undertake doctoral dissertations using data from the large-scale national or international data sets supported by the NCES, NSF, and other federal agencies. Applications are encouraged from a variety of disciplines, such as but not limited to, education, sociology, economics, psychology, demography, statistics, and psychometrics. The selection process is competitive. The application deadline is January 10, 2011. For detailed information, see http://www.aera.net/grantsprogram/res_training/diss_grants/DGFly.html AERA Research Grants. AERA provides small grants for faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and other doctoral-level scholars to undertake quantitative research using data from the large-scale national or international data sets supported by the NCES, NSF, and other federal agencies. Applications are encouraged from a variety of disciplines, such as but not limited to, education, sociology, economics, psychology, demography, statistics, and psychometrics. The selection process is competitive. The application deadline is January 10, 2011. For detailed information, see http://www.aera.net/grantsprogram/res_training/res_grants/RGFly.html . AERA Institute on Statistical Analysis for Education Policy: Transitions from High School to College. The Institute's goal is to build the capacity of the U.S. education research community to use large-scale national and international data sets supported by the NCES, NSF, and other federal agencies. Hands-on training is provided in the application of large-scale data sets, with special emphasis on using them for policy-related research in education. In 2011, the Institute will focus on using these data sets to address research questions related to student transitions from high school to college. Senior researchers, agency staff, and other experts jointly provide this training, to be held May 24-26, 2011, in Washington, DC. The Institute will cover participant expenses (transportation, meals, and lodging.) The selection process is competitive. The application deadline is January 20, 2011. For more detailed information, see http://www.aera.net/grantsprogram/res_training/stat_institute/SIFly.html . AERA Faculty Institute for the Teaching of Statistics with Large-Scale Date Sets. The Faculty Institute's goal is to help faculty use large-scale federal data sets in their courses. Especially important are data sets sponsored by the NCES, NSF, and other federal agencies. These data sets, often longitudinal and nationally representative, offer an excellent opportunity to conduct research and learn advanced quantitative methods with high quality policy relevant data. This Institute aims to "train the trainers"; that is, to teach faculty to incorporate these data sets in their statistics and methodology courses, thereby preparing the next generation of researchers to take advantage of these rich data resources in their research. This Institute will be held June 15-17, 2011 at Stanford University. The Institute will cover participant expenses (transportation, meals, and lodging.) The selection process is competitive. The application deadline is January 20, 2011. For more detailed information, see http://www.aera.net/grantsprogram/res_training/stat_institute/SIFacFly.html .
