National Academy of Education
Founded in 1965, the National Academy of Education (NAEd) advances high-quality research to improve the effectiveness of education policies and practices.
The NAEd consists of U.S. members and international associate members who are chosen based on their scholarship. As part of its mission to prepare the next generation of education scholars, the Academy conducts research to address pressing issues in education and administers fellowship programs for professional development.
In conjunction with the Spencer Foundation, the National Academy of Education (NAEd) offers two professional development fellowship programs each year. The programs are designed to encourage new generations of scholars to engage in and strengthen research that contributes to the improvement of education, as well as support early career scholars involved in critical areas of educational research.
The Academy also offers fellows opportunities to take part in professional development retreats, where they meet with National Academy of Education members, senior scholars and other leaders.
NAEd Fellowship Opportunities
Scholars from many disciplines and professional fields are encouraged to apply for the Dissertation Fellowship Program in order to carry out research relevant to the improvement of educational practices. Fellows who meet this requirement and submit their dissertations by the deadline will be supported with a fellowship award.
Early-career scholars working in critical areas of educational scholarship are supported by the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
