Grants & Scholarships

AIR, in conjunction with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), sponsors a grant program that provides professional-development opportunities to doctoral students, institutional researchers, educators, and administrators. The Improving Institutional Research in Postsecondary Educational Institutions program also helps foster the use of federal databases for institutional research in postsecondary education.

Qualifying AOs receive matching funds from AIR on a dollar-for-dollar basis, up to a total of $1000.
