Who can participate

Have you ever wanted to run an experiment to improve math learning with thousands of K12 students, but did not have the money or resources? Good news! IES is giving away 10 grants, each for $400,000, to support such efforts! IES already funded 5 platforms to add support for researchers (and E-TRIALS/ASSISTments platform is one of them).

The IES Request for Applications has been released. Applications will be due February 23rd, 2023.

On November 30, 2022, 4pm - 5pm EST, we will host an office hour on IES Grant Competition with IES Program Officer Erin Higgins. If you are interested, please sign up to receive the Microsoft Teams link for the webinar.

If you are interested in submitting a grant proposal, please contact We can add you to our mailing list. Feel free to share us your idea so we can give you advice about its feasibility. (IES requires you get a letter from me).
