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 NAEd/Spencer Spring Fellows Retreat is an opportunity for NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral and Dissertation Fellows to re-connect, present their research projects, and participate in mentoring and career development sessions.

SAVE THE DATE: The 2017 NAEd Annual Meeting & Fellows Retreat will be held on November 8-11 in Washington, DC.

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.
