William T. Grant Foundation Invites Letters of Inquiry for Youth Research

Deadline: January 9, 2009 (Letters of Inquiry)

The William T. Grant Foundation (http://wtgrantfoundation.org/) is now accepting Letters of Inquiry for its field-initiated major grants program.

The foundation’s current research interests include understanding how social settings such as families, schools, peer groups, and organizations work; how these social settings affect youth; and how such settings can be improved. The foundation’s interests also focus on when, how, and under what conditions research evidence is used in policy and practice that affect youth, and how the use of such evidence can be improved.

To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must be employed at a nonprofit 501(c)(3) institution based either in the United States or abroad. Proposals must address issues that have compelling relevance for theory, policies, and/or practices affecting the settings of youth between the ages of 8 and 25 in the United  States or a vulnerable subpopulation of those youth.

The complete announcement is available at the Grant Foundation Web site.
