The American Educational Research Association invites applications for the AERA Congressional Fellowship Program. This new program was launched in 2016 during AERA’s Centennial year. The second cohort of fellows will commence a one-year fellowship in September 2017.
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.
The fellowship pays a competitive salary.
AERA is accepting fellowship applications. The deadline to apply is January 17, 2017. The fellowship term starts on September 1, 2017 and ends on August 31, 2018.
This fellowship is open to doctoral scientists from any discipline relevant to education research. Researchers at all stages in their careers are encouraged to apply.
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.
