In this announcement, the Institute of Education Sciences (Institute) describes its Research Training Programs in the Education Sciences (Research Training) funded through the National Center for Education Research (NCER). The training programs aim to prepare individuals to conduct rigorous and relevant education research that advances knowledge within the field and addresses issues important to education policymakers and practitioners.

For the FY 2016 competition, the Institute is accepting applications to the Research Training Programs in the Education Sciences request for applications under the Pathways to the Education Sciences Research Training Program topic only.

  • The Pathways to the Education Sciences Research Training Program funds training programs at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and institutions of higher education that partner with MSIs. These programs are open to all students and are designed to provide upper-level undergraduate students, recent graduates, and/or master's students, especially from underrepresented groups, with education research experience and professional development in order to prepare these students to pursue doctoral study in the education sciences or in fields relevant to education research.
