William T. Grant Foundation Accepting Letters of Inquiry for Inequality Research Studies

The William T. Grant Foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for projects designed to enhance understanding of the programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequalities in youth development.

Studies may examine approaches that improve outcomes for all youth but can reduce gaps if applied to those who need them most, as well as programs, policies, and practices aimed at elevating the most disadvantaged young people. The foundation also is interested in studies that improve the measurement of inequality in ways that will enhance the work of researchers, practitioners, and policy makers. Grants will range up to $600,000.

To be eligible, applicants must be employed at a nonprofit institution, either in the United States or abroad; address issues that have compelling relevance for U.S. youth between the ages of 5 and 25; and reflect high standards of evidence and rigorous methods, commensurate with the project’s goals.

LOIs must be submitted no later than August 4, 2015. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals.
