William T. Grant Foundation Seeks Applications for Inequality Research Grants
In recent years, inequality in the United States has become increasingly pervasive. At the same time, prospects for social mobility have decreased. The William T. Grant Foundation, which seeks to improve the lives of youth between the ages 5 and 25, believes that the research community can play a critical role in reversing this trend.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for research projects designed to advance understanding in the area of inequalities in youth development and/or to increase understanding of how research is acquired, understood, and used, as well as the circumstances that shape its use in decision making.
Through its Research program, the foundation will award grants of up to $600,000 in support of research that focuses on ways to reduce disparities in youth’s academic, behavioral, social, and economic outcomes. Priority will be given to projects related to inequality on the basis of economic, racial/ethnic, and language backgrounds; research that explores other areas of inequality also will be considered based on a compelling case for its impact.
To be eligible, organizations must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
See the William T. Grant Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and an FAQ.
Deadline: May 1, 2019
