National Academy of Education Announces Postdoctoral Fellowship in Education

If you are an Education researcher studying dialogue or civic engagement, you may be interested in the National Academy of Education/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. This non-residential postdoctoral fellowship funds proposals that make significant scholarly contributions to the field of education. The program also develops the careers of its recipients through professional development activities involving National Academy of Education members.

Fellows will receive $55,000 for one academic year of research, or $27,500 for each of two contiguous years, working half-time. Fellowships must begin during the 2007-08 academic year. Fellows take the equivalent of one year’s teaching leave during the fellowship term and will be included in professional develop ment retreats with other fellows and NAEd members. Up to twenty postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded in 2007. Applicants must have received their Ph.D., Ed.D., or equivalent research degree between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2006. Applicants should have a demonstrated record of research experience in education. The proposed project must be a research project. NAEd funds studies that examine the efficacy of curriculum and teaching methods, but does not fund the initial development of curriculum or instructional programs. Non-U.S. citizens are welcome to apply. For complete application guidelines and materials, visit the NAEd Web site at www.naeducation.org/NAEd_Spencer_Postdoctoral_Fellowship.html#TopOfPage. Applications are due on November 10, 2006.
