arrowUnsolicited Grant Opportunities

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) announces its willingness to consider unsolicited applications for research, evaluation, and statistics projects that would make significant contributions to the mission of the organization. Under this announcement, IES could consider two different types of unsolicited applications. The first type includes projects that are not eligible under IES' current (FY2014) grant competitions, which are described at The second type of unsolicited application includes research that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources to address time-sensitive research questions, where the window to obtain data and carry out a project is short and the project would not be feasible under IES' current grant competition timelines.

Please note that IES' National Center for Special Education Research did not hold research grant competitions for FY2014, and IES will not consider applications under this unsolicited announcement that in prior years would have been eligible under IES' Special Education Research (CFDA 84.324) competitions.
