Writing Competitive Grants to the Institute of Education Sciences  Copy to Calendar

Tuesday, August 9, 2016
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Location: Webinar

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) is the major funding agency for research and development grants in education. The National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER), one of the four Centers within IES, is the primary funding source for special education research. Writing a competitive and fundable proposal for the IES competitions can be overwhelming. Securing a grant from the IES is even more difficult. As a result, there is a high demand in the AUCD Network for a session on how to write a competitive IES grant proposal. The CORE is sponsoring a webinar to address this need. This webinar features two great researchers/speakers: Dr. Erik Carter of Vanderbilt University UCEDD and Ms. Kimberly Sprague of the IES. Dr. Carter is a nationally known and highly productive researcher in special education who has successfully secured funding from the IES. Ms. Sprague is a Senior Research Scientist/Education Analyst at the IES and has conducted research for over 25 years. They will introduce the IES grant process and share successful experiences during this webinar.
