The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) will consider unsolicited applications for research, evaluation, and statistics projects that would make significant contributions to the mission of the organization. IES's mission is to expand fundamental knowledge and understanding of education and to provide parents, education leaders and practitioners, researchers, and the general public with unbiased, reliable, and useful information about the condition and progress of education in the United States; about education policies, programs, and practices that support learning, improve academic achievement, and increase access to education opportunities for all students; and about the effectiveness of Federal and other education programs. In addition, as appropriate to the type of project proposed and the status of IES's Standards for Excellence in Education Research (SEER) development at the time of application submission, IES expects applicants to address as many SEER domains and questions as possible. Information about SEER is found at https://ies.ed.gov/seer.asp.
