In this request for applications (RFA), NCER invites applications to contribute to networks under the Research Networks Focused on Critical Problems of Education Policy and Practice program. The Education Research Network Grants program focuses resources and attention on education problems or issues that are a high priority for the nation and creates both a structure and process for researchers who are working on these issues to share ideas, build new knowledge, and strengthen their research and dissemination capacity. Networks are comprised of multiple teams who have their own individual projects that share a focus on a particular education issue and a Network Lead. The goals of a Network are to advance the field’s understanding of a problem or issue beyond what an individual research project or team can do on its own and to assist policymakers and practitioners in using this information to strengthen education policies and programs and improve learners’ education outcomes. Networks support IES’s mission to fund rigorous research that helps solve significant education problems that are relevant to the teaching and learning needs of the diverse population of the United States. NCER’s ability to support high quality research depends on its ability to train and support talented researchers, statisticians, and evaluators that reflect this diversity. IES encourages principal investigators and personnel from all demographic backgrounds to apply. IES also encourages applications from minority-serving institutions.
