    Application includes: 1) Research proposal (limited to 4 single-spaced pages), that addresses the policy issue and its importance, as well as methodology including proposed data set and criteria for selecting data file, sample, variables, and analytic techniques; 2) Proposed budget; 3) CV; 4) letter of support from applicant's faculty dissertation advisor. If applicant is from a discipline other than education, a letter of support from a faculty sponsor with an education background must also be included.

    Evaluation criteria include the importance of the proposed policy issue, the strength of the methodological model and proposed statistical analysis of the study, and relevant experience and research record of the applicant.

  The review criteria will include the following: Is the policy issue clearly defined? What is already known on the issue? How does the methodology relate specifically to the policy question? Does the applicant know the data set? Does the analytic plan fit the question and the data? Is the applicant qualified to carry out the proposed study?

    There is no specific format for the budget section. Funds may be used for tuition and/or institution fees, books, living expenses, equipment, travel, supplies, computing time, etc. Institutions may not charge overhead on AERA Grants Program awards. Please be advised that if equipment is included in the budget and it will be purchased entirely with AERA funds, AERA will retain ownership of this equipment.

    Proposals for Grants and Fellowships will be reviewed three times a year, in Fall, Winter, and Spring, with funding decisions made within a month of the review date. Proposals must be received by:

           March 31, 2000 to be reviewed in April

           September 1, 2000 to be reviewed in October

           January 5, 2001 to be reviewed in February

 

up to $10,000 for 1-year projects, or up to $20,000 for 2-year projects

 

Goals are: (1) to stimulate research on U.S. education policy and practice related issues, with a priority for those involving mathematics and science education using NCES and NSF data sets; (2) to improve the U.S. educational research community's firsthand knowledge of the range of data available at the two agencies and how to use them; and (3) to increase the number of U.S. educational researchers using the data sets. Minority researchers are strongly encouraged to apply. 

    Researchers must utilize at least one NSF or NCES data set in the dissertation. Additional large-scale nationally representative data sets may be used in conjunction with the obligatory NSF or NCES data set. If international data sets are used, the study must include U.S. education.

    Applicants should choose research topics (suggested topics are listed in brief on the website) that can be supported by the samples and variables contained in the proposed data set.  Applicants should be familiar with statistical methods and available computer programs that allow for sophisticated analyses of the selected data. It is also important to select a topic that has policy relevance and that models to be tested include predictor variables that are manipulable (e.g., course work in mathematics, instructional practices used by teachers, parental involvement). Applicants should also be familiar with the specific data set's User Guides and/or Manuals (e.g., use of design weights and design effects).

Fellowships for ABDs to fund dissertation work on topics related to education, very broadly defined. Although the dissertation topic must concern education, applicants from any field of graduate study may apply. Topics could include cultural knowledge, socialization, and the production and distribution of knowledge.  Any student attending a US university is eligible.

    These fellowships are not intended to finance data collection or completion of doctoral course work, but rather to support the final analysis of the research topic and the writing of the dissertation.  For this reason, applicants must document that they will have completed all pre-dissertation requirements by June 1 of the fellowship year, and must provide a clear and specific plan for completing the dissertation within a two-year time frame.  Although the dissertation topic must concern education, applicants from any field of graduate study may apply. Proposals from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives are welcome. In the past, fellowships have been awarded to doctoral candidates from across the social sciences, the humanities, and the sciences, as well as from doctoral students in professional fields. Candidates should be interested in pursuing further research on education once the doctorate is attained.

    The award must be expended within a time limit of two years and in accordance with the work plan provided by the candidate in the application.

         the research project and its intended outcomes or results

         the person(s) to be responsible for its implementation

    1111 Sixteenth Street NW

    Washington, DC 20036

E-mail: foundation@aauw.org

Phone: 202/728-7602

 

Up to $50,000 for a one-year project

 

Proposals must show significant institutional cost-sharing beyond the basic indirect cost rate. Proposals for two-year projects will also be considered.  Colleges and universities may apply for support for a woman scholar to undertake and disseminate research on gender and equity for women and girls. Institutions may use the funds either to bring a qualified scholar to the institution for a fixed period or to designate a scholar currently at the institution to undertake research activities that would not occur without such support. Proposals should strive to achieve impact nationally, rather than within a single university, department, or program.  Priority will be given to proposals that provide matching funds. Priority also will be given to institutions indicating that research and activities proposed are likely to continue after the funding period, as opposed to single events or one-time initiatives.

    The Foundation will provide funding, with appropriate cost sharing from the institution, to establish a program that focuses on both research activities and dissemination of findings.  Two criteria will be of paramount importance to the Foundation in selecting the institution and research project to be funded: 1) relevance and potential impact of the research project to be undertaken, and its significance in exploring new research areas, or in advancing theory and practice beyond its present boundaries; and 2) dissemination of research findings to an audience of scholars, policy makers, and practitioners in a manner that enables the utilization of the information and knowledge generated

    The competition favors applications that demonstrate a project's consistency with the Institute's congressional mandate, which is to serve the American people through research, education, training, and the dissemination of information about the nature of interstate or civil conflict and peaceful ways to manage and resolve it.

 

$14,000 for one year

 

The program supports doctoral dissertations that explore the sources and nature of international conflict, and strategies to prevent or end conflict and to sustain peace. Dissertations from a broad range of disciplines and interdisciplinary fields are eligible. Peace Scholars work at their universities or appropriate field research sites. Priority will be given to projects that contribute knowledge relevant to the formulation of policy on international peace and conflict issues. Citizens of all countries are eligible, but must be enrolled in an accredited college or university in the United States. Applicants must have completed all requirements for the degree except the dissertation by the commencement of the award (Sept). The dissertation fellowship award may be used to support writing or field research.

    Project proposals that deal with the sources and nature of interstate or civil conflict, with ways to prevent, limit, or end violent conflict, and with post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation are welcome. Proposals should present a research agenda with a clear relevance to policy issues, although a policy dimension need not be the main thrust of the project. Historical topics are appropriate if they promise to shed light on contemporary issues. Area studies projects and single-case studies will be competitive if they demonstrate a focus on conflict and its resolution, as well as the applicability of the research to other regions around the world.

Bannerman Fellows have the freedom to use their sabbaticals however they think will best re-energize them for the work ahead. No product (other than a brief report) is required. Past Fellows have used the time and resources to travel, study, visit with other activists, read, relax, acquire new skills, explore new interests, evaluate, plan and "just be still".  To qualify, you must be a person of color; have at least ten years experience as a community activist; be committed to continuing to work for social change and be a resident of the United States or its territories. The Bannerman Program also seek applicants who have helped to build community organizations or institutions that have a clearly defined and involved constituency, address significant social and economic issues, have had tangible success and acknowledge the cultural values of the community; have demonstrated a strong commitment to grassroots leadership development; and have contributed to building a movement for social change-for example, by defining new strategies or issues, by organizing new constituencies, or be developing networks, alliances or coalitions to advance a progressive agenda. In addition, preference will be given to applicants who have a special need for a sabbatical; have more than 10 years of experience; are working with low-income people; and are working at the grassroots level. An equal number of men and women will be selected.  Fellows are encouraged to stop their day-to-day work activities for at least three months and devote that time to activities which are substantially different from their normal routing. Activities during the sabbatical must flow from your experience as a community activist and strengthen your ability to contribute to social change in the future. You must have the endorsement of your organization. Sabbaticals must be taken within one year of the awarding of the Fellowship. Fellows must submit a report on their sabbatical.

Students should have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. except the dissertation and be matriculating in a full-time graduate program leading to the Ph.D. in a social, health, or behavioral science department of a nationally accredited US College or University. The Sexuality Research program is intended to contribute to a more thorough understanding of human sexuality by encouraging researchers to formulate new research questions, generate new theories, and apply new methods in sexuality research. The program supports research that: 1) Contributes to a more thorough understanding of human sexuality in order to inform programmatic/community efforts and public policy regarding current social and health issues; 2)  Develops interdisciplinary approaches, both theoretical and applied, in which researchers from different social science disciplines will participate; 3) Proposes methodological innovation and diversity utilizing qualitative and/or quantitative research methods that generate new theories and test new methodology

The Program seeks to cultivate new generations of scholars who will address the complexity and contextual nature of human sexuality by linking the study of human sexuality to the intellectual trajectory of their own disciplines and by exploring the connections across disciplines, methods, and issues.   Applicants will be encouraged to submit research proposals that seek to investigate a wide range of sexuality topics as conceptualized by their respective disciplines and conducted within the US (see website for description of topics).  Projects in which researchers from different social science disciplines will participate and those that address community needs and/or are relevant to policy development and implementation are particularly welcome.  Fellowship support can begin any time between June 1, 2001 and Sept 1, 2001. A final report is due upon termination of the award from all fellows.

In partnership with the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (www.wiko-berlin.de), the SSRC has organized summer institutes for promising junior scholars from Germany and the United States since 1994. Two institutes begin every year, and each consists of two two-week workshops. One workshop is held at a German university while the other is held at a U.S. institution. The institutes are designed to strengthen and expand interdisciplinary cooperation across the social and natural sciences, and are funded by the German-American Academic Council Foundation (GAAC)in Bonn and Washington.

Each institute brings together approximately 20 fellows and six senior scholars to develop interdisciplinary scholarly networks and collaborative projects. The goals of the institutes are to discuss theoretical, methodological, and empirical issues; to integrate approaches and interpretations from various disciplines; and to identify promising areas for further research.  Doctoral candidates based at U.S. or German institutions and recent Ph.D.'s (within four years of receiving the PhD) in the relevant disciplines may apply.

The goal of the Program is to provide talented women and men with the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the legislative process. The Program was initiated in 1976 as the Graduate Intern Program. It was motivated by concern that Black professionals are seriously under-represented on Capitol Hill. The Graduate Intern Program was established after the Committee on House Administration released a report finding that of 18,000 Congressional employees, less than 1,000 were Black; and of 22 Standing Committees in the House of Representatives, fewer than 25 Blacks held professional positions. In 1982, the CBCF decided to expand the internships into more in-depth nine-month Fellowships to allow for greater research and public policy analysis opportunities. Fellows gain invaluable experience in assisting in the development of legislative and public policy initiatives while working as congressional staff. Fellows work 40 hours per week on a range of staff assignments, including research and analysis, responding to constituent mail, drafting legislation and coordinating logistics and public testimony for Congressional hearings. During the Fellowship year, each Fellow is also required to write a research paper related to a policy issue of concern to the Member with whom the Fellow is working. All CBCF Fellows will receive compensation in the amount of $20,000. Fellows are responsible for their own travel arrangements, expenses and housing.  The program includes the following: an in-depth orientation to Capitol Hill; a nationally-recognized lecture series with African American Members of Congress; a weekly seminar which complements the Fellows' practical work experience with policy analysis on national political issues that are of particular interest to African Americans and a professional development component which allows Fellows to explore career opportunities (with the guidance of a mentor) and develop strategies which facilitate upward mobility.

To be selected, an applicant must have a demonstrated understanding of, and a commitment to, the process of Black political empowerment.

The CBCF Fellows Program is open to individuals who are full-time graduate or law students, recent graduates, professionals with five or more years of experience who are pursuing part-time graduate studies, or college faculty members who have an interest in the legislative policy- making process. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.  All Fellows must serve for the nine months of the academic year.
