The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is accepting applications from teachers in grades 7-12 for classroom research grants.

Grants of up to $6,000 will be awarded to support and encourage classroom-based research in precollege mathematics education. The research must be a collaborative effort involving a college or university mathematics educator (a mathematics education researcher or a teacher of mathematics learning, teaching, or curriculum) and one or more middle or high school classroom teacher. The project may include but is not restricted to research on curriculum development and implementation; involvement of at-risk or minority students; students’ thinking about a particular math concept or set of concepts; the connection of mathematics to other disciplines; focused learning and teaching of mathematics with the embedded use of technology; and/or innovative assessment or evaluation strategies. The research should lead to a draft article suitable for submission in Mathematics Teacher Educator, thr Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, or in an NCTM school journal.

To be eligible, applicants must be a current Full Individual member or E-Member of NCTM (if a high school teacher), or someone who teaches at a college or university. Seventh- or eighth-grade teacher applicants may be a current Full Individual or E-Member or teach at a school having a current NCTM pre-K–8 school membership.

See the NCTM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Spencer Foundation Invites LOIs for Large-Scale Education Projects

The Spencer Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent from investigators for its Lyle Spencer Research Awards program.

Grants of up to $1 million will be awarded to support intellectually ambitious large-scale education research projects. In an effort to create much-needed space for creative and ambitious research projects that promise to advance our understanding of educational practice and its improvement, the program encourages proposals from scholars across a variety of disciplines and fields.

To be eligible, principal investigators and co-PIs must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field, or appropriate experience in an education research-related profession. In addition, the PI must be affiliated with a college, university, school district, nonprofit research facility, or nonprofit cultural institution that is willing to serve as the administering organization if the grant is awarded. The foundation does not award grants directly to individuals.

LOIs must be received no later than July 12, 2016. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a brief essay explaining the aims, context, and rationale for the proposed project.

See the Spencer Foundation website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about previous grant recipients, and application procedures.
