The William T. Grant Scholars Program supports the career development of promising early-career researchers working on social justice research in the USA. The program funds five-year research and mentoring plans that significantly expand researchers’ expertise in new disciplines, methods, and content areas. Applicants must select a focus area:
- Reducing Inequality
- Improving the Use of Research Evidence
Applicants must be nominated by their institutions. • Applicants must have received their terminal degree within seven years of submitting their application. Applicants outside the United States are eligible. As with U.S. applicants, they must pursue research that has compelling policy or practice implications for youth in the United States. The Foundation strongly encourages research projects led by Black or African American, Indigenous, Latinx, and/or Asian or Pacific Islander American researchers.
The Program provides 350,000 USD (including up to 7.5% indirect costs) over 5 years.
