The National Academy of Education welcomes applications for its NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
Established in 1986, the program annually awards fellowships of $70,000 to twenty-five scholars in support of non-residential postdoctoral proposals with the potential to advance the field of education. Fellows may elect to take their fellowship full-time over one year or half-time over two years and may conduct their research at their home institution or at another research site that they have arranged. During their fellowship tenure, fellows are required to attend three professional development retreats hosted by NAEd and to make a formal presentation of their research to the academy. NAEd provides additional travel funds for fellows to attend these meetings.
The fellowship is intended as salary replacement for one year and to cover other research expenses outlined in the proposal. Fellows must not receive other funding in support of their proposed research during the grant period.
To be eligible, applicants must have received their PhD, EdD, or equivalent research degree between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2019.
