WERA sponsors competitive grants (maximum award of $5,000) for studies of educational issues. The purpose of the awards is to support studies that focus on instructional improvement, classroom assessment, educational measurement at both the district and state level, and the evaluation of education programs. Research and evaluation proposals focusing on issues associated with equity or that include partnerships across institutions are particularly encouraged. The lead investigator must be a current WERA member and have not received a previous WERA grant.  Continuation of previous WERA grants will not be funded.  Studies lasting up to 18 months may be proposed.
