arrowUnsolicited Grant Opportunities

The Institute of Education Sciences announces that it will consider unsolicited applications for research, evaluation, and statistics projects that would make significant contributions to the mission of the organization.

Under this announcement, we will consider applications for projects that are not eligible under our FY2019 grant competitions, both open and closed, described at The applicant must demonstrate that the project was not eligible under one of our FY2019 grant competitions. In addition, we do not provide funds for projects that consist solely of program delivery or the provision of services to students. Activities supported by the Institute must be relevant to U.S. schools.

The National Center for Education Research did not hold the Research Training Programs in the Education Sciences competition (CFDA Number: 84.305B) in FY 2019, and we will not consider applications under this unsolicited announcement that in prior years would have been eligible under that competition.
