IES Low-Cost Evaluation Grant Programs

The National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER) and the National Center for Education Research (NCER) within the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) have announced two new grant programs with a January 12, 2016 application deadline.

The IES Low-Cost Evaluation grant programs are designed to support rigorous evaluations of education and special education interventions (i.e., practices, programs, and policies) from which states or local education agencies expect significant improvements in student outcomes within a short period (e.g., within a single semester or academic year).

IES staff recently conducted a webinar providing an overview of the two new grant competitions. The webinar covered the general requirements related to student outcomes, education settings, interventions that can be studied, evaluation designs, partnerships between researchers and education agencies, and products to be disseminated.
