Advancing High-Quality Research to Improve Education Policy and Practice
Founded in 1965, the National Academy of Education consists of U.S. members and international associates who are elected on the basis of outstanding scholarship related to education. The Academy undertakes research studies to address pressing issues in education and administers professional development programs to enhance the preparation of the next generation of education scholars.
The National Academy of Education awards two professional development fellowship programs. These programs seek to encourage new generations of scholars to undertake and strengthen research relevant to the improvement of education and support early-career scholars working in critical areas of education research. In addition, fellows participate in professional development retreats with National Academy of Education members, senior scholars, and other leaders in the field.
