COE Faculty Member Receives Large AERA Grant

February 1, 2010

Dr. John Weathers of the Leadership, Research and Foundations Department of the UCCS College of Education received a $35,000 research grant award February 2010 from the American Educational Research Association.

The project is entitled “A Propensity Score Matching Analysis of the Effects of Inclusive Special Education Services.” With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the AERA Grants Program announces its Research Grants competition. The program seeks to stimulate research on U.S. education issues using data from the large-scale, national and international data sets supported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), NSF, and other federal agencies, and to increase the number of education researchers using these data sets.

The program supports research projects that are quantitative in nature, include the analysis of existing data from NCES, NSF or other federal agencies, and have U.S. education policy relevance.
