AIR/NCES Fellowships for Graduate Study

The Association for Institutional Research (AIR), as part of its contract to improve the quality of institutional research in U.S. postsecondary education systems and hence, the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), announces a new national graduate fellowship program funded by the National Center for Education statistics (NCES).

The fellowships are for graduate study advancing or leading to careers in institutional research, thereby increasing the national level of expertise of institutional research officers and the data that they produce. Specific program goals are to have more people better trained in IR and completing advance degrees.

Fellowships will be awarded for credit-bearing graduate study at various degree levels, with different levels of funding. The annual mix of proposals will determine how many of each will be awarded.

Full-time doctoral students: maximum $30,000 over a three-year period ($10,000 per year). No full-time awards will be made to first-time graduate students with no IR work experience.

Part-time graduate students: maximum $9,000 over three-year period ($3,000 per year). Part-time students could move to full-time and apply for an increased award. Part-time awardees may re-compete at the end of the three-year period.

The submission deadline is April 15, 2007. Proposals must be submitted electronically as an MS Word or PDF e-mail attachment to air@airweb2.org.

Please forward this announcement to your faculty e-mail list and any colleagues or peers who may be interested in applying for the new AIR/NCES Fellowship for Graduate Study.
