In this announcement, the Institute of Education Sciences (Institute) describes its Research Training Programs in Special Education (Training) funded through the National Center for Special Education Research. The training programs aim to prepare individuals to conduct rigorous and relevant special education and early intervention research that advances knowledge within the field and addresses issues important to education policymakers and practitioners. Grants will be made under these topics:

  • The Early Career Development and Mentoring program provides support for an integrated research and career development plan for investigators in the early stages of their academic careers who have established an interest in special education research. The ultimate aim of this program is to help launch independent research careers focused on infants, toddlers, children, and youth with or at risk for disabilities. The award will provide support for research (including salary for protected time to conduct research) and career development that includes training under the guidance of an experienced mentor or mentors.
  • Methods Training for Special Education Research funds programs to help current education researchers maintain and enhance their research and data analysis skills in order to conduct rigorous and relevant research focused on learners with or at risk for disabilities.
