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 invites proposals focused on the evaluation of programs with the potential to help close opportunity and resulting achievement gaps between children living in underresourced communities and/or from underrepresented populations and other children.

The primary aim of the proposal must be related to evaluating the effectiveness of programs designed to promote positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years of age) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities (such as minority ethnic groups or low-income families). Secondary aims may focus on one or more of the following: variations in program effects; mechanisms through which such effects occur; and/or comparisons of the total costs of the program (start-up and ongoing operational costs) with its estimated monetary benefits to determine net cost or benefit.

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 during 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 December 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a stage-two proposal by April 1, 2019.

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: December 1, 2019 (Stage-One Proposals)
