"... the deadline for Education Research Service Projects (ERSP) proposals is fast approaching on January 9, 2014. The ERSP initiative is designed to encourage education researchers to offer their pro bono expertise to educational organizations, institutions, or other community groups that have identified and expressed a need for such assistance. With the start of the new year, it is a perfect opportunity to undertake a research service project and give back using your expertise.
The ERSP initiative provides small grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to defray direct costs involved in these projects. AERA expects that funded projects will be conducted within one year.
Advanced by past president Arnetha Ball and unanimously approved by AERA Council in April 2012, the ERSP initiative emphasizes the importance and value of pro bono service in the field of education research and seeks to shape a commitment among AERA members to serving the public good. ERSP projects may vary in the form, scope, and nature of the research expertise being provided.
For more information on the ERSP initiative, see the Call and Guidelines for Proposals.
Brief abstracts of all 12 ERSP projects funded in 2013 are also available on the AERA website."
