Brown University is accepting applications for a nonresidential, postdoctoral fellowship program. The program focuses on the relatively turbulent role the federal government plays in education funding. Federal efforts in educational reform often conflict with the venerable traditions of local control and states’ rights in educational governance. This program seeks fresh work on the federal role, ranging from the politics of federal education programs to the process of implementation to the history of educational ideas.
