On November 20, 2020, we published in the Federal Register (85 FR 74328) an NIA for the FY 2021 Research Networks Focused on Critical Problems of Education Policy and Practice and the Transformative Research in the Education Sciences Grant Programs.

We are reopening these competitions for potential applicants that meet the eligibility criteria set out below and applicants that do not meet that eligibility criteria but have planned subawardees and contractors identified in their application that meet that criteria. The eligibility criteria are as follows:
