The William T. Grant Foundation is happy to announce our updated and streamlined reducing inequality guidelines, which will give potential applicants all they need to prepare a competitive letter of inquiry, including a concise overview of this program’s specific research interests and review criteria for proposed studies.
This program funds research studies that aim to build, test, or increase understanding of programs, policies, or practices to reduce inequality in the academic, social, behavioral, or economic outcomes of young people ages 5-25 in the United States, along dimensions of race, ethnicity, economic standing, language minority status, or immigrant origins.
Deadline: January 12, 2022 3pm ET
Proposed studies must:
- identify a specific inequality in youth outcomes
- make a convincing case for the dimension(s) of inequality the study will address
- articulate how the findings will help build, test, or increase understanding of a specific program, policy, or practice to reduce the specific inequality that you have identified.
