The William T. Grant Foundation is now accepting applications for research grants for its summer deadline of August 2. Here is a description of the program from their website:
We fund research that increases understanding in one of our two focus areas:
- programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes, and
- strategies to improve the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth.
We seek research that builds stronger theory and empirical evidence in these two areas. We intend for the research we support to inform change. While we do not expect that any one study will create that change, the research should contribute to a body of useful knowledge to improve the lives of young people.
Please contact Research and Sponsored Programs if you have any questions about these programs or are interested in submitting a proposal.
