A $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Educational Sciences (IES) aims to increase the number of psychologists conducting school-based research by creating the Postdoctoral Education Research Training Program. A joint effort between APA and IES, the two-year pilot program will fund 13 postdoctoral fellowships and match fellows with a mentor to design school-based studies. While the application deadline has passed, APA officials hope to secure additional funding when the two-year pilot ends.
