E. Willard and Ruby S. Miller Grants for Research in Geography Education
The Miller Research Grant program was established in 2004 through a generous endowment to NCGE by E. Willard and Ruby S. Miller. The grants are intended to advance the frontiers of geography education by supporting and promoting innovative research in theory, practice, and application. Projects should enhance the understanding of geographic learning and teaching through original investigations of learning processes, techniques, and content. Projects may focus on geographic learning and teaching at any age level from pre-school to adult, and could include research on pre-service and/or in-service programs for geography educators. Investigations concentrating on the micro-scale examination of individual learners and teachers are welcome, as are studies that pursue issues of geographic education at the classroom, school, district, college, state, national, or international levels.
Proposals that do not explicitly focus on research related to teaching and learning geography will not be considered. Funding is not available for programmatic or curriculum development unless there is a clear research component.
The deadline for proposal submission is Friday, March 15, 2013.
Pending available funding, a second deadline for proposal submission will be Tuesday, October 15, 2013.
Any questions and inquiries may be directed to Dr. Susan Hume, NCGE VP for Research.
