Spencer Foundation Invites LOIs for Large-Scale Education Projects

The Spencer Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent from investigators for its Lyle Spencer Research Awards program.

Grants of up to $1 million will be awarded to support intellectually ambitious large-scale education research projects. In an effort to create much-needed space for creative and ambitious research projects that promise to advance our understanding of educational practice and its improvement, the program encourages proposals from scholars across a variety of disciplines and fields.

To be eligible, principal investigators and co-PIs must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field, or appropriate experience in an education research-related profession. In addition, the PI must be affiliated with a college, university, school district, nonprofit research facility, or nonprofit cultural institution that is willing to serve as the administering organization if the grant is awarded. The foundation does not award grants directly to individuals.

LOIs must be received no later than October 12, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

See the Spencer Foundation website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about previous grant recipients, and application procedures.
