Nominations Invited for William T. Grant Scholars Program for Research in Youth Development

Deadline: July 1, 2004

The William T. Grant Foundation (<a href="http://www.wtgrantfoundation.org/">http://www.wtgrantfoundation.org/</a>) supports original research designed to further the understanding of the factors that influence the well-being and healthy development of adolescents and young adults.

The foundation’s William T. Grant Scholars Program supports, over a five-year period, promising post-doctoral researchers from diverse disciplines. Priority research areas are youth development; improving programs, policies, and institutions affecting young people; and adults’ use of evidence and their views of youth. The foundation focuses on young people ages 8-25, and is particularly interested in research that is inter- disciplinary; examines young people in social, institutional, community, and cultural contexts; and addresses questions that advance both theory and practice.

Every year, four to six William T. Grant Scholars are selected, and each receives $300,000 distributed over a five-year period. Through the foundation’s annual Scholars’ retreat and other activities, the William T. Grant Scholars are encouraged to continue inter- and multi-disciplinary collaboration and interchange.

Investigators at all nonprofit institutions, both in the United States and abroad, are eligible. The award is designed for early career researchers. Applicants should be pre-tenure (if in a tenure track position) or in a similar early career status if in a non-tenure track position. Candidates must be nominated by a supporting institution, and should submit five-year research plans. Grants are limited to tax-exempt organizations.

See the William T. Grant Foundation Web site for complete program information.
