The Association of Education Finance and Policy (AEFP) supports several grants and awards programs.
The AEFP Early Career Award recognizes junior scholars with exemplary early career trajectories (typically between 1 and 6 years post-doctorate) whose research substantially contributes to the field of education finance and policy.
AEFP seeks to recognize the academic contributions of the researchers in our journal, Education Finance and Policy. We are very pleased to announce the inception of the Thomas A. Downes Award for the best article published in EFP in the prior calendar year. A committee of EFP referees and editors will make the selection, to be announced at the first general session of the Annual Conference.
The American Educational Research Association (AERA) provides AERA Grants, a program that provides small grants, fellowships, and training for researchers who conduct studies of education policy and practice, using quantitative methods. Grant program studies includes data analysis from the large-scale data sets sponsored by National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
