The Association for Institutional Research’s Data and Decisions Academy is committed to building capacity in institutional research and data
use at two-year institutions. To help achieve that goal, AIR offers Data and Decisions Academy Scholarships. Scholarships are specially designed for early career institutional research practitioners, faculty/staff exploring future roles in IR or assessment, and others who collect and manage data for institutional effectiveness and improvement. Scholarships are intended to broaden access to the Academy’s unique online courses, which build practical IR skills needed to support data-informed decision-making. Scholarships cover $600 of tuition for two courses, leaving a total institutional commitment of $800.
