William T. Grant Foundation
2015 Scholars Program for Youth Researchers
William T. Grant Foundation Accepting Nominations for 2015 Scholars Program
The William T. Grant Foundation’s Scholars Program supports promising early-career researchers from diverse disciplines who have demonstrated success in conducting high-quality research and are seeking to further develop and broaden their expertise.
Proposed research projects must be focused on youth between the ages of 5 of 25 in the United States and aim to improve our understanding of programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes, as well as the use of research evidence in policy and practice.
Candidates are nominated by a supporting institution and must submit five-year research plans that demonstrate creativity, intellectual rigor, and a commitment to continued professional development.
In 2015, four to six William T. Grant Scholars will be selected, with each receiving $350,000 distributed over a five-year period.
To be eligible, applicants must be employed at a nonprofit institution, either in the United States or abroad, and have received their terminal degree within seven years of submitting their application.
Complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about past grantees, and application instructions are available on the William T. Grant Foundation website.
DEADLINE: JULY 8, 2015
