Research Written in the STARs

Our Support to Advance Research (STAR) program is now open! The STAR Program is an initiative developed by the PAEA Research Council and research staff that allows faculty of PAEA member programs to submit up to 10 questions (including all branching questions) for inclusion in the Program Survey, which is administered to all PAEA member program directors. Following the close of the 2016 Program Survey and any follow-up conducted, the researcher will receive de-identified data from their questions.

As a part of the submission, faculty members may request a limited amount of other fields from the 2016 Program Survey to be included in the data received. Data requested must be directly related to the proposal’s research question(s), must not identify programs, and data awarded will be up to the discretion of PAEA Research Department staff and the Research Council.

Proposals should be emailed to India Waller at by January 29, 2016. More information about the program, submission instructions, and formatting requirements can be found on PAEA’s website. Any questions should be addressed to PAEA Research Department staff at or 703-667-4332.
