Outside funding sources for Education Ph.D.


Recommended Posts


Most of the Ph.D. programs in education that I am looking at offer full funding + stipends to most/all of their students, but not all of them do, and the stipends that are given don't always seem to cover even very modest living expenses.

I want start looking for potential sources of outside funding for a Ph.D. program, but don't even know where to begin. Does anybody have any suggestions?

It depends upon your sub-discipline. Education is so broad and some areas have negative associations in academia. If you are far away from the "professional" track of teacher training then you can sell a research-intensive sub-discipline to Ford. Spencer is the biggie for our discipline. There isn't too much that is education-specific so, again, your sub-discipline matters greatly. If you're in ed psych look at psych funding, quantitative measurement look at data centers like IES, etc.
