Posted by Spencer Foundation on April 19, 2022

Spencer Foundation invites applications for conference grants

The Spencer Foundation invites applications for its Conference Grant Program.

The program supports scholars, practitioners, and policy makers to develop small research conferences, focused symposia, or other convenings to explore innovative research methods and advancements grounded in advancing racial equity in education research with budgets up to $50,000. The program seeks proposals with the potential to bring together researchers, practitioners, policy makers, or other important collaborators whose expertise, substantive knowledge and practice, theoretical insight, and/or methodological expertise can be engaged in ways that help build on and advance education research.

The foundation rotates the area of focus for this program annually to generate fresh ideas and perspectives on pressing educational challenges. For this funding cycle, the foundation will support conferences related to critical and innovative methodological needs and advancements in the service of education research that advances racial equity.

The program is limited to conference/symposia budgets of no more than $50,000.

PIs and co-PIs must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field or have appropriate experience in an education research-related profession. Applicants must also be affiliated with a nonprofit organization or public/governmental institution willing to serve as the administering organization if the grant is awarded.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Spencer Foundation website.

Deadline: May 5, 2022 12:00 p.m. (noon) CT
