AERA Congressional Fellowship Opportunity

 

What
The American Educational Research invites applications for the AERA Congressional Fellowship Program. This fellowship provides an exciting opportunity for AERA members to come to Washington, DC and use education research, outside of the academic setting, to inform public policy while working on Capitol Hill.

The goals of the fellowship are: (1) to contribute to the effective use of scientific knowledge about education in the formation of public policy; (2) to educate the scientific community about the development of public policy; and (3) to establish a more effective liaison between education researchers and federal policymakers.

When

  • AERA will accept fellowship applications for the 2019 - 2020 term starting on September 1, 2018.
  • The deadline to apply is December 15, 2018 at 11:59 PT.
  • The fellowship is a one-year commitment. The term will start on September 3, 2019 and end on August 31, 2020.

Who

  • Doctorate-level scholars in education research and related disciplines and fields are eligible.
  • Researchers at all stages in their careers are encouraged to apply.

How
Following a two-week science policy orientation program, the AERA fellow will begin work as a resident scholar within a congressional office. AERA Congressional Fellows will benefit from on-going professional development and networking opportunities.
