The Institute for Education Sciences (IES) within the U.S. Department of Education has a new research training program for early career MSI faculty.  The new Early Career Mentoring Program for Faculty at Minority Serving Institutions (84.305B) provides support to faculty employed by minority-serving institutions (MSIs) who are developing education research careers. The awards provide support for research (including salary for protected time to conduct research) and career development that includes training under the guidance of an experienced mentor or mentors. These researchers are expected to conduct independent research, take on leadership positions within research teams, and clearly communicate their findings to multiple audiences. To learn more about the program and how to apply, see the IES Funding Opportunities website. For assistance, you should also watch the on-demand webinar Funding Opportunities for Minority Serving Institutions and attend the Early Career virtual office hours on Thursday, July 22 2:00 pm ET. (Deadline July 22 and September 9, 2021)

Survey Invitation + Online Community for Latinx Education Leaders
Latinos for Education (L4E) seeks to create the largest online network of Latino education leaders in the country -- from K12 to higher education and across industries that support Latinx communities. The online platform is called EdCentro, which serves as a space to find mentors, network with Latinx leaders in your community, and find jobs who are looking for expert Latinx leaders like you. We are looking to increase AAHHE member representation in this space.
L4E is also inviting Latinx education leaders to engage in a brief survey to share their thoughts about what resources and advocacy supports you need to be successful. Your insights will help L4E target advocacy efforts for funds, programs, and supports in your local community. The survey link is here: https://www.tfaforms.com/4921731Those interested in participating should respond by September 3rd, 2021.

10 survey participants will receive a $50 gift card. 
If you have any questions regarding EdCentro or survey insights, please reach out to AAHHE Fellow Alumni '14, Dr. Vanessa Monterosa, who is partnering with Latinos for Education as a Los Angeles Regional Captain. You can contact her at the following email address: [email protected].
