The National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship provides funding and professional development to researchers whose projects address critical issues in the history, theory, or practice of formal or informal education, at the national and international levels. The 35 NAEd/Spencer Dissertation Fellows — selected from a pool of roughly 400 applicants — will receive $27,500 for a period of up to two years to complete their dissertations and also attend professional development retreats. According to NAEd President Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings, "The NAEd/Spencer Fellowship Programs cultivate the next generation of education scholars by funding their research projects and providing resources to strengthen their research and research training, including mentorship from NAEd members. We consider these fellows to be among the best in their respective fields, and I look forward to working with them in the coming year."
