The Spencer Foundation’s is currently inviting applications for its Conference Grants Program which aimed at providing support to scholars for small research conferences and focused symposia. The conference grant program intends to bring together scholars whose substantive knowledge, theoretical insight, and methodological expertise can be assembled in ways that build upon and reach beyond familiar modes of thinking concerning conundrums or problems in education research, specifically those related to critical questions in the area of Teaching and Learning.
