 Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to share information on the application process for the
Adolescent Literacy Predoctoral Fellowship Program, as well as the National
Academy of Education/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The deadlines
are quickly approaching so we ask that you please help us widely distribute
information on the two fellowship programs to qualified candidates,
listservs and other electronic sources by using the following paragraphs
below. A PDF version of each flyer is attached to this message. Thank you
for your assistance.

The National Academy of Education (NAEd) invites applicants for the
following fellowship programs:

*Adolescent Literacy Predoctoral Fellowship Program*

Administered by the NAEd with generous funding from Carnegie Corporation of
New York, the Adolescent Literacy Predoctoral Fellowship program supports
doctoral research aimed at improving literacy outcomes for middle and
secondary school students. Fellows will participate in ongoing training
activities to interact with and learn from leading researchers in the field
of adolescent literacy and in activities that promote building a community
of scholars. Fellows will receive a stipend of $25,000, to be disbursed
over a period of up to two years, to support finalizing the dissertation
proposal and collecting data. Applicants should be a candidate for the
doctoral degree at a graduate school within the United States. Twenty
fellows will be accepted for the two-year fellowships.

Additional guidelines and the fellowship application form are available for
download from NAEd's website (www.naeducation.org). Deadline: *December 1,

two contiguous years, working half time. Applicants must have had their
PhD, EdD, or equivalent research degree conferred between January 1, 2003,
and December 31, 2008. This fellowship is non-residential, and applications
from all disciplines are encouraged. Up to twenty NAEd/Spencer Fellowships
