William T. Grant Foundation is seeking applications from US organizations for its research grants to support high-quality research that is relevant to policies and practices that affect the lives of young people ages 5 to 25 in the United States.
- Programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes.
- Strategies to improve the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth.
Research grants about reducing inequality typically range between $100,000 and $600,000 and cover two to three years of support.
- Projects must be aligned with one of the Foundation’s current research focus areas.
- Projects should demonstrate sound theoretical grounding, sophisticated conceptualization, and relevance to policy or practice.
- Research plans must demonstrate feasibility.
- Grants are made to organizations, not individuals.
- Research project has compelling relevance for programs, policies, and practices affecting youth ages 5-25 in the U.S.
- Funds primarily support research activities, not intervention or service costs.
- Grants are limited, without exception, to tax-exempt organizations. A copy of the Internal Revenue Service taxexempt status determination letter is required from each applying organization.
- Institutions usually have their own eligibility criteria regarding who can act as Principal Investigator (PI) on a grant. This often excludes graduate students.
- Graduate students can, however, be listed as Co-Principal Investigators.
