Advancing High-Quality Research to Improve Education Policy and Practice

Founded in 1965, the NAEd consists of U.S. members and foreign 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 2016 NAEd Annual Meeting & Fellows Retreat is an opportunity to connect with members, learn of the work of our NAEd/Spencer fellows, and receive updates on current and new initiatives. In addition, we will feature plenary sessions on Challenges in Higher Education, the IES Reading for Understanding Initiative, and Journalism and Education. Finally, our annual meeting dinner will feature an address by NAEd President Michael Feuer.

Fellowship Programs

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 as well as other leaders in the field.

Research at the Academy

The National Academy of Education is dedicated to advancing high-quality education research. The Research Advisory Committee, charged with setting the research agenda for the organization, is instrumental in identifying and developing new research program ideas and providing guidance to projects in their early stages of development.
