The William T. Grant Foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for research projects designed to increase understanding of programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth (between the ages of 5 and 25) outcomes; and strategies to improve the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth. The foundation seeks research that builds stronger theory and empirical evidence in these two areas as well as to inform change.
Descriptive studies meant to clarify the mechanisms for reducing inequality are encouraged. The foundation also seeks intervention studies that examine attempts to reduce inequality, as well as studies that improve the measurement of inequality in ways that will enhance the work of researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.
Research grants about reducing inequality typically range between $100,000 and $600,000 and cover two to three years of support. Research grants about improving the use of research initiative will range between $100,000 and $1 million and cover two to four years of support.
