The American Educational Research Association (AERA) invites proposals for conferences in education research. AERA supports research conferences intended to break new ground in substantive areas of inquiry, stimulate new lines of study on issues that have been largely unexplored, or develop innovative research methods or techniques that can contribute more generally to education research. Conferences may focus on conceptual, empirical, or methodological issues important to understanding the state of the knowledge and charting directions for future research. It is anticipated that research conferences will draw upon diverse disciplines and fields of inquiry where there is relevant scientific and scholarly expertise. The purpose of this program is to foster the accumulation of knowledge, to enhance dissemination, to encourage innovation, and to advance studies of the highest quality in education research. AERA’s Research Conferences Program awards grants of up to $35,000.
The deadline for submissions for Spring 2017 is March 7, 2017. For more information or to submit a proposal, please see the Call and Guidelines for Proposals or email EdResearchConference@aera.net. Please visit the AERA website for information about previous awards.
