Research/Dissertation Grants – Legal Ed Access, Affordability, Value

Association for Institutional Research (AIR)

The Access Group Center for Research & Policy Analysis and the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) invite applications for $50,000 research grants (faculty, practitioners, scholars) and $25,000 doctoral grants (Ph.D. candidates).  The application deadline is Dec. 19, 2016.

The program is a grant competition promoting scholarship on issues related to access, affordability and value of legal education specifically, and graduate and professional education more broadly. Preference is given to proposals that utilize regional, national, or multi-institutional datasets, although research that focuses on a single institution is acceptable. Preference is also given to proposals that specifically address legal education; however, proposals that study access, affordability and value of graduate and professional education more generally are also encouraged. Researchers may analyze pre-existing data or include the construction of a new dataset in their proposal. Membership to Access Group or AIR is not required for grant eligibility.
