Application Deadline for NSF QRM Scholars Program

Application Deadline for NSF QRM Scholars Program

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Quantitative Research Methods for STEM Education (QRM) Scholars Program pairs early-career education researchers with quantitative mentors to help develop skills in design, measurement, and analysis.

The program includes a year-long training that includes a 3-day virtual Fall Institute (Sept. 27, 28, & Oct. 4, 2024) and a 2-day in-person Winter Institute (Jan. 31 & Feb.1, 2025), on-going live-stream workshops, and one-on-one research support with the assigned quantitative mentor. 

The institute and the subsequent workshops will focus specifically on the data analysis skills, measurement issues, and design principles most applicable to STEM Education researchers. In addition, Scholars receive access to a state-of-the-art statistical computation and software server for the duration of their Scholar year.

Throughout the year, Scholars will design and implement a study of their choice with the support of their quantitative mentor and share their findings with their cohort.

Applications for the 2024-25 cohort are now open! The priority deadline is June 9, 2024.

As part of the NSF QRM Scholars Program, you will:

  • Improve your capacity as an early career faculty or postdoctoral fellow to apply best-practices design, measurement, and data analysis strategies and techniques to your own research;
  • Collaborate with a dedicated quantitative mentor throughout the program year;
  • Strengthen your peer-support network by connecting with fellow Scholars during the virtual Training Institute, participating in social media conversations with other Scholars during the program year, and sharing your research with your cohort; and
  • Gain the skills to work on multidisciplinary teams and develop professional relationships with quantitative methodologists to enhance the methodological rigor of your own research after the completion of the program year.
Priority Deadline: June 9, 2024
