Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Territories state educational agencies for educational research. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for research to provide interested individuals, as well as the general public, with reliable and valid information about education practices that support learning. Funds are also intended to improve academic achievement and access to educational opportunities for all learners. Through the Using Longitudinal Data to Support State Education Policymaking grant program, NCER intends to expand the research use of State Longitudinal Data Systems to examine long-term learner outcomes and pathways in order to provide evidence for State education policymaking.

Through the Using Longitudinal Data to Support State Policymaking (Using Data) grant program, the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) seeks to expand state education agencies’ use of their state longitudinal data systems (SLDS) to provide evidence for use when making policy decisions. State education agencies (SEAs) can apply for these grants, on their own or in collaboration with other organizations, to analyze the data in their own SLDS in order to examine long-term trends in key issues, programs, and policies affecting learner outcomes.

SLDSs are designed to help states, districts, schools, educators, and other stakeholders to make data-informed decisions to improve student learning and outcomes as well as to facilitate research to increase student achievement and close achievement gaps. In addition to a set of common K-12 student data elements such as student demographics, grade level, enrollment and completion, attendance, state assessment scores, many of these systems include other K-12 student elements and link K-12 student data to other data including K-12 teacher data, prekindergarten data, postsecondary data, Perkins CTE data, workforce data, and health and human services data.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible Applicants: For the Using Longitudinal Data to Support State Education Policymaking grant program, eligible applicants must be a State educational agency (SEA), defined as a State or Territory's K-12 authority, alone, or in conjunction with research organizations such as universities and research firms, and/or with other appropriate organizations (such as other State agencies or local educational agencies). The SEA must be the grantee and must provide the Principal Investigator.

Federal grant funds cannot be used to pay for alcoholic beverages or entertainment, which includes costs for amusement, diversion, and social activities. 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. You may request funds to cover expenses for working meetings, such as working lunches; however, IES will determine whether these costs are allowable in keeping with the Uniform Guidance Cost Principles. Grantees are responsible for the proper use of their grant awards and may have to repay funds to the Department if they violate the rules for meeting- and conference-related expenses or other disallowed expenditures.

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.
