Program Evaluations – Aug 1

Posted by Brady Education Foundation on June 29, 2021

The Brady Education Foundation aims 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 evaluating programs with the potential to help close the opportunity and resulting achievement gaps associated with race and family income.

The primary aim of the proposal must concern the evaluation 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 (e.g., minoritized ethnic groups and low-income families). Secondary aims may also focus on one or more of the following: variations in program effects (i.e., test for moderation effects that inform whether effects are stronger for certain groups and/or under certain conditions than other groups or conditions); mechanisms through which these effects occur (i.e., test for mediation effects that inform why the program is effective); and cost-benefit analyses 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 a 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 August 1.
