AERA is reaching out to members and other friends of education research to urge end-of-year giving tied to broadening inclusion in the field and supporting professional involvement of graduate students in need. AERA’s request is focused on vital sets of activities supported through the AERA Minority Dissertation Fellowship Fund and the 2023 Annual Meeting Assistance Fund.

“Among early career researchers, we have seen a growing need for the kind of professional engagement and development opportunities that support the advancement of individual researchers and of the field as a whole,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “This is especially true among graduate students.”

“Contributions large and small can make a difference in helping us achieve these goals,” Levine said.

AERA dues are essential to the continuing operations of the association, including programmatic emphases. Donations and grants are essential to AERA initiatives that are major in scope, purpose, and visibility.

For nearly three decades, the Minority Dissertation Fellowship Fund has aimed to build capacity, diversity, and inclusion in the field by providing financial support and professional development opportunities to outstanding graduate students from underrepresented backgrounds. Donations will help support an increase in the size of the awards that Minority Dissertation Fellows receive.

The 2023 Annual Meeting Assistance Fund provides support to AERA graduate student members who wish to attend the 2023 AERA Annual Meeting but face financial barriers to doing so.

Primarily through an email campaign, the association is seeking contributions to these two dedicated funds. AERA encourages all members and other friends to invest in the next generation of a broad, diverse, and engaged scholarly community.
