William T. Grant Foundation research grants

Posted by on August 11, 2008

The William T. Grant Foundation is accepting letters of inquiry for its field-initiated grants program.  The foundation’s current research interests include understanding how social settings such as families, schools, peer groups, and organizations work; how they affect youth; and how they can be improved. The foundation is also interested in when, how, and under what conditions research evidence is used in policy and practice that affect youth, and how its use can be improved.

Applicants must be employed at a nonprofit 501(c)(3) institution; submit a project that is consistent with the foundation’s current research interests; address issues that have compelling relevance for theory, policies and/or practices affecting youth between the ages of 8 and 25 or a vulnerable sub-population of those youth; and reflect high standards of evidence and rigorous methods commensurate with the proposal’s goals.

The deadlines for Letters of Inquiry are September 3, 2008, January 8, April 1 and September 9, 2009.  For complete program information, go here.
