New Program to Fund Graduate Research in Education


The U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences (IES) recently announced a new program to fired graduate training programs in the education sciences. These programs will train a new generation of education researchers capable of producing scientific evidence to guide education policy and classroom practice. Such evidence is crucial to the implementation of the education reforms in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002, and to further the transformation of education into an evidence-based field.

Each of the new training grants will be funded for up to $1 million per year for up to five years. Ten or more training grants could be awarded in the first year of the program. This marks the first time thai the department will provide significant support to colleges and universities to develop programs for students interested in pursuing careers in education research. Currently, doctoral-level training in education research is located primarily in schools of education and is not producing sufficient numbers or researchers who are qualified to meet the burgeoning demand for rigorous, quantitative research on the effectiveness of education programs and practices.

"Education is no different from other disciplines--research and science can and should play big roles," said Secretary of Education Rod Paige.
