Brady Education Foundation Seeks Applications for Program Development and Evaluation

The Brady Education Foundation seeks to close the achievement/opportunity gap for children at risk for poor school outcomes due to environmental factors associated with living in poverty.

To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting stage-one applications from projects focused on the development and evaluation of programs that are consistent with a strength-based approach and show promise of being feasible, effective, and sustainable.

1) Program Development: One-year grants will be awarded for the development and testing of new programs designed to promote positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities. Priority will be given to projects that represent strong collaborative relationships between researchers, practitioners, and other community stakeholders (as appropriate), and where the community/population being studied is represented in the composition of project’s leadership team; are consistent with strength-based approaches rather than deficit models; leverage other funding; and/or show promise of being affordable, accessible, and sustainable. Past Program Development grants have ranged between $25,000 and $276,000.

2) Existing Program Evaluation: Grants for up to three years will awarded to projects that evaluate the effectiveness of programs designed to promote positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities. Preference will be given to projects that represent strong collaborative relationships between researchers, practitioners, and other community stakeholders (as appropriate), and where the community/population being studied is represented in the composition of the project’s leadership team; projects that evaluate programs consistent with strength-based approaches rather than deficit models; projects for which operational funding for the program is already secured so that funding from the foundation is used only for evaluation activities; projects that evaluate programs that show promise of being affordable, accessible and sustainable; projects that employ randomized control designs (including wait-list control designs when assignment to wait-list condition is randomized); and/or projects that evaluate effects on measurable child outcomes. Past Existing Program Evaluation grants have ranged between $241,000 and $792,000.

To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.

Stage-one applications must be received no later than December 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a stage-two application by April 1, 2019.

See the Brady Education Foundation for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: December 1, 2018 (Stage-One Applications)
