The International Reading Association’s Teacher as Researcher Grant is one of three grant programs for teachers who conduct research inquiries in their classrooms. The Teacher as Researcher Grant supports teachers in their inquiries about literacy and instruction. Grants can be awarded up to $5,000, although priority will be given to smaller grants (e.g., $1,000-$2,000) in order to support as many teacher researchers as possible. Teacher as Researcher Grant studies may be carried out using any research method or approach so long as the focus is on reading/writing or literacy. Activities such as developing new programs or instructional materials are not eligible for funding unless these activities are necessary for conducting the research.
