Small Research Grants in the Areas of Inquiry


The Small Research Grants program currently accepts proposals with a total budget of $50,000 or fewer. This program is organized under four areas of inquiry that identify broad topics we believe have fundamental and abiding importance for educational improvement (see links above for further detail on each area). Together these areas cover the range of contemporary research questions about education, including educational outcomes, purposes, practices, policies and enabling (or constraint) organizational contexts and processes. There are occasionally proposals that don’t fit within one of these broad areas; for those submissions, we welcome the proposal as a field-initiated Small Research Grant.
