The NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship from the National Academy of Education (NAEd) and the Spencer Foundation supports education research worldwide. The postdoctoral fellowship was established in 1986 by the NAEd with a grant from the Spencer Foundation. The fellowship program is intended to support early-career scholars working in critical areas of education research. To that end, the NAEd seeks to fund proposals that promise to make significant scholarly contributions to the field of education and to advance the careers of the recipients. Applicants must have received their PhD, EdD, or equivalent research degree between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2022. The fellowship of $70,000 will be awarded to 25 scholars. Fellows may elect to take the fellowship full-time over one year or half-time over two years. Applicants may be based anywhere in the world. Scholars may conduct their research at their home institution or at another research site that they have arranged.
