Brady Education Foundation Invites Applications for Program Evaluations

The Brady Education Foundation seeks to close the opportunity gaps between children living in underresourced and/or underrepresented communities and other children.

To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting proposals focused on evaluating programs with the potential to help close the opportunity and resulting achievement gaps between children living in underresourced communities and/or from underrepresented populations and other children.

The primary proposal aim must concern evaluating the effectiveness of programs designed to promote positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (from birth through 18 years of age) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities (such as minoritized ethnic group and low-income families). Secondary aims may also focus on one or more of the following: investigate variations in program effects; that is, test for moderation effects that inform whether effects are stronger for certain groups and/or under certain conditions than other groups or conditions; investigate mechanisms through which effects occur; that is, test for mediation effects that inform why the program is effective; and compare the total costs of the program (start-up and ongoing operational costs) with its estimated monetary benefits to determine the net cost or benefit associated with the program.

The foundation will award support for up to two key personnel from the evaluation team and one practitioner or service provider from the program to attend one conference the last (or only) year of the project, with an allowable cost of $1,500 per person. Projects may span up to three years.

Stage-one proposals are due April 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a stage-two proposal due on August 1, 2020

To be eligible, applicants must be a principal investigator with a nonprofit as a home institution. Applicants at all career stages may apply.

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

Deadline: April 1, 2020 (Stage-One Proposals)
