This webinar provides instruction and advice on writing successful applications to the Institute of Education Sciences’ (IES) Education Research Grants program (84.305A) and Special Education Research Grants program (84.324A). Prospective applicants who have not received an IES grant should participate.

Direct instruction on these topics will be accompanied by review of examples. Applicants will be able to ask questions about their specific research ideas. Participants are expected to be familiar with the IES Requests for Applications (see http://ies.ed.gov/funding/), to have the skills needed for such research, and to submit a research idea and sketch of a proposed project beforehand.
