The AccessLex Institute and the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) Research and Dissertation Fellows Program is a grant competition promoting scholarship on issues related to access, affordability and value of legal education specifically, and graduate and professional education more broadly. Preference is given to proposals that utilize regional, national, or multi-institutional datasets, although research that focuses on a single institution is acceptable. Preference is also given to proposals that specifically address legal education; however, proposals that study access, affordability and value of graduate and professional education more generally are also encouraged. Researchers may analyze pre-existing data or include the construction of a new dataset in their proposal. Membership to AccessLex Institute or AIR is not required for grant eligibility. Two levels of grants are available to support year-long research projects for recipients affiliated with a non-profit U.S. postsecondary institution or relevant higher and legal education organization.

AWARDS

  • $50,000 Research Grants: Research grants of up $50,000 are available to faculty, practitioners, and scholars.
  • $25,000 Doctoral Grants: Dissertation grants of up to $25,000 are available to doctoral students to support dissertation research and writing under the guidance of a faculty dissertation advisor.
