Institute of Education Sciences-funded Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Research Training (IES-PIRT) program

NYU's Institute of Human Development and Social Change (IHDSC), in association with faculty from seven academic units - Administration, Leadership and TechnologyApplied Psychology, Applied Statistics, Social Science, and Humanities, Teaching and Learning (Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development); Economics and Sociology (Faculty of Arts and Science); and the Wagner School of Public Service – was awarded a second five-year grant to train an additional 27 incoming and advanced doctoral students from diverse backgrounds to become outstanding researchers in the educational sciences through 14 four-year awards and 13 two-year awards.

The primary focus of the second phase is to provide doctoral students with the knowledge, expertise, and technical skills to pursue rigorous, cutting-edge, relevant research in both academic and non-academic settings and to produce research that supports children’s learning from preschool through post-secondary education.

Please note that IHDSC is not a degree-granting department. Rather, the IES-PIRT program is a fellowship awarded to doctoral students admitted to or enrolled in the academic departments listed above. As such, IHDSC staff cannot give guidance on academics or admissions relating to doctoral degrees. For questions concerning graduate admissions, please contact the department you are interested in applying to directly.
