Posted by Shofi Fida Wednesday, December 2, 2015 0 comments
Closing Date: January 11, 2016.

The program supports efforts to bring together scholars whose knowledge, theoretical insight, and methodological expertise can be assembled in ways that build on and reach beyond familiar modes of thinking concerning problems in education research, specifically those related to the area of teaching and learning. Through the program, the foundation aims to encourage the research community to advance new and rigorous research in this sub field and to ultimately increase collaboration within the educational research community.

Conferences should include a broad set of perspectives on topics or problems in education as they relate to the profession and practice of teaching or how students learn in formal and informal spaces.  The foundation is particularly interested in proposals that seek to bridge disciplines, subtopics, or contexts that address how and what people learn, including fields related to teaching and learning. For example, scholars of English education might seek to engage in conversations with science, social studies, mathematics, arts, or additional discipline specific education researchers in an effort to foster greater cross-fertilization within the field. Likewise, scholars who explore themes of culturally relevant or culturally sustaining pedagogy might seek to collaborate with scholars in content-specific fields in ways that support the development of research in both areas.

§  Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-PIs applying for a conference grant must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field, or appropriate experience in an education research-related profession.
§  The PI must be affiliated with a college, university, school district, non-profit research facility, or non-profit cultural institution that is willing to serve as the fiscal agent if the grant is awarded. The Spencer Foundation does not award grants directly to individuals.
§  Proposals are accepted from the U.S. and internationally, however all proposals must be submitted in English and budgets must be proposed in U.S. Dollars.

Total Grant:
The program will support conference proposals with budgets of up to $50,000.
