The Spencer Foundation provides funding to support a year of study for mid-career (7-20 years post doctorate) scholars who are interested in advancing their understanding of a compelling problem in education. Recipients are released from teaching and service responsibilities in order to explore new areas of study that can connect to their existing scholarship. For example, grantees might invest a year learning new methodological tools or studying the theories of another discipline that might intersect and inform their work in new ways. Proposals are due September 10, 2015. The funded year is 2016/2017. Click here for more information.
