In awarding these grants, the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) intends to provide national leadership in expanding knowledge and understanding of: developmental and school readiness outcomes for infants and toddlers with or at risk for a disability, education outcomes for all learners from early childhood education through postsecondary and adult education, and employment and wage outcomes when relevant (such as for those engaged in career and technical, postsecondary, or adult education). The IES research grant programs are designed to provide interested individuals and the general public with reliable and valid information about education practices that support learning and improve academic achievement and access to education opportunities for all learners. Under this competition, National Center for Special Education Research (NCER) will consider only applications that address one of the following topics: Career and Technical Education; Civics Education and Social Studies; Cognition and Student Learning; Early Learning Programs and Policies; Effective Instruction; English Learners; Improving Education Systems; Postsecondary and Adult Education; Literacy; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education; Social and Behavioral Context for Academic Learning. Under these competitions, National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER) will consider only applications that directly address a pandemic-related problem, issue, program, policy, or practice that is important to a State or local education agency, has the potential to improve outcomes significantly and rapidly for students with or at risk for disabilities, and will provide actionable and timely results to districts and schools. NCSER will hold two competitions.
