Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, public and private agencies, and institutions of higher education, such as colleges and universities, for educational research. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support the development of a wide range of methodological and statistical products, including new or improved methods, guidelines, and software to better enable applied education scientists to conduct rigorous education research. Researchers should plan to disseminate their products to applied education researchers who may use them in their own work, as well as to researchers who may further develop or make use of them.

For the FY 2021 Methods competition, IES is accepting two topics:

  1. Regular Grant
  2. Early Career Grants: IES established the Early Career Grants to encourage a new generation of education researchers to address methodological issues and challenges and to develop statistical and methodological products that will benefit the education sciences. Applicants to the Early Career Grants topic must have received their doctorate on or after April 1, 2016. Applicants eligible for Early Career Grants may apply to either the Early Career or the Regular Grants topic. You should indicate your choice on the SF424 cover sheet and at the top of the first page of the Project Narrative. Applicants who apply for the Early Career Grants topic must include the required research mentor or advisory panel who will collaborate on the research.

 IES is interested in seeing applications that address the following:

  • Variability in Effects
  • Generalizability of Findings
  • Replication
  • Single-case Designs
  • Data Science Tools for Education Researchers
  • Quasi-experimental Designs (QEDs)
  • Interpreting Impacts
  • Costs and Cost Effectiveness
  • Synthetic Datasets
  • Methods for Synthesizing Qualitative Evidence
  • Addressing Test Opt Out as a Source of Missing Data

More information about these topics can be found starting at https://ies.ed.gov/funding/pdf/2021_84305D.pdf#page=9.

In general, federal funds may not be used to pay for food. A grantee hosting a meeting or conference may not use grant funds to pay for food for conference attendees unless doing so is necessary to accomplish legitimate meeting or conference business.

IES strongly encourages you to contact the program officer for this competition if you have questions regarding the appropriateness of a project for submission under a specific topic.

Letters of Intent (LOIs) are non-binding and optional but strongly recommended. If you submit an LOI, a program officer will contact you regarding your proposed research. IES staff also use the information in the LOI to identify the expertise needed for the scientific peer review panels and to secure a sufficient number of reviewers to handle the anticipated number of applications.

Submit Early. Begin the submission process at least 48 hours before the deadline to allow time to correct errors during submission.

Approximately 1 to 2 weeks after the application deadline, invitation emails are sent to applicants who have never applied to IES before to create their individual PRIMO ANS accounts. Both the PD/PI and the AOR will receive invitation emails. Approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the application deadline, all applicants (new and existing ANS users) will begin to receive a series of emails about the status of their application.

IES provides technical assistance (TA) to applicants that addresses the appropriateness of project ideas for this competition and methodological and other substantive issues concerning research in education settings. IES program officers work with applicants though a variety of formats up until the time of Grants.gov submission. IES also provides Funding Opportunities Webinars that include advice on choosing the correct competition, grant writing, and submitting your application.

To apply to IES, your organization must be registered on Grants.gov. There are multiple steps you must take to make sure that you and your institution can work within and submit through the Grants.gov system. If your organization is new to federal grants or Grants.gov, review the Grants.gov Organization Registration page before you get started.

Steps in Grants.gov:
- Get a DUNS Number. This step usually takes 1 to 2 business days to complete.
- Register with the System for Award Management (SAM). Once you have a DUNS number, register with the SAM. It can take up to 2 weeks (and an additional 5 weeks if you need to get an Employer Identification Number [EIN] or Taxpayer Identification Number [TIN]) until the SAM registration process is complete.
- Register with Grants.gov. Once your registration in the SAM is complete, you are ready to register on Grants.gov. Whether you are an applicant for an organization or an individual applying for grants on your own, you only need to register one account on Grants.gov. This registration process can be completed in minutes.
- Add a Profile to a Grants.gov Account. Once you have a Grants.gov account, you may add a profile and use the My Account features to manage one or more profiles within your account. If you already have a Grants.gov account, you do not need to register another account. After adding a profile, learn how roles are authorized for profiles and how to track your roles status.
- Create and use the Grants.gov Workspace. You must create or use an existing workspace within Grants.gov to submit your application.
