With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) of the Institute of Education Sciences, the AERA Grants Program announces its Research Grants Program. Underrepresented minority researchers are strongly encouraged to apply. The program seeks to stimulate research on U.S. education issues using data from the large-scale, national and international data sets supported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), NSF, and other federal agencies, and to increase the number of education researchers using these data sets. The program supports research projects that are quantitative in nature, include the analysis of existing data from NCES, NSF or other federal agencies, and have U.S. education policy relevance. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that: *develop or benefit from new quantitative measures or methodological approaches for addressing education issues *include interdisciplinary teams with subject matter expertise, especially when studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning *analyze TIMSS, PISA, or other international data resources *include the integration and analysis of more than one data set
