The Early Career Development and Mentoring Program for Faculty at Minority Serving Institutions (Early Career MSI Program) supports grants that prepare faculty at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) to conduct high-quality education research that advances knowledge within the field of education sciences and addresses issues important to education policymakers and practitioners.

The Early Career MSI Program supports the mentoring and training of faculty at MSIs who are in the early stages of their academic careers. Each award will provide an individual Early Career MSI faculty member with support to conduct exploratory research (including salary for protected time to conduct research) as well as support for career development that includes training under the guidance of an experienced mentor or mentors.

This program is part of IES's larger effort to develop a pipeline of talented education researchers who bring fresh ideas, approaches, and perspectives to addressing the issues and challenges faced by the nation's diverse students and schools. By awarding these grants to MSIs, IES seeks to prepare principal investigators (PIs) at MSIs to conduct the type of research IES funds in its research grant programs.

FY 2024 Funding Opportunities:
For FY 2024, Early Career grant applications will be due January 11, 2024. The PI must have completed a doctoral degree or postdoctoral position no earlier than April 1, 2018 and no later than the start of the award period. Additional details on the Early Career MSI Program requirements and how to apply are available in the Research Training Programs in the Education Sciences (ALN 84.305B) Request for Applications.

If you are an early career researcher at an academic or non-academic research institution or organization that is not considered a MSI, you should consider applying to the FY 2024 Early Career Development and Mentoring Program for Education Research within the Research Training Programs in the Education Sciences (ALN 84.305B) Request for Applications.
