William T. Grant Foundation Invites Applications for 2010-11 Scholars Program in Youth Settings Research
Deadline: July 7, 2010

An initiative of the William T. Grant Foundation, the William T. Grant Scholars Program is accepting applications from promising early-career researchers who want to tackle questions important to theory and either policy or practice for improving youth settings.

The program is designed to support 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. The foundation is interested in applicants trained across a range of social, behavioral, and health sciences. Applicants must submit a project that is consistent with the foundation’s current research interests: addressing issues that have compelling relevance for theory and policies or practices affecting the settings of youth between the ages of 8 and 25 in the United States or a vulnerable sub-population of those youth.

Four to six William T. Grant Scholars are selected annually and each receives $350,000 distributed over a five-year period. Candidates are nominated by their supporting institution and must submit five-year research plans that demonstrate creativity, intellectual rigor, and a commitment to continued professional development.

To be eligible for consideration, 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. The award may not be used as a postdoctoral fellowship. Visit the Grant Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines.
