The William T Grant Scholars Program supports career development for promising early-career researchers. The program funds five-year research and mentoring plans that significantly expand researchers’ expertise in new disciplines, methods, and content areas. The foundation will accept one applicant per major division of an institution (e.g., College of Arts and Sciences, Medical School). The foundation supports research in two distinct focus areas: 1) Reducing inequality in youth outcomes, and 2) Improving the use of research evidence in decisions that affect young people. Proposed research must address questions that align with one of these areas. Studies from a range of disciplines, fields, and methods are invited, and they encourage investigations into various youth-serving systems, including justice, housing, child welfare, mental health, and education (see above-linked guidelines for details).
Interested faculty should contact their collegiate associate dean for research as soon as possible to share with their interest in going forward. The online application opens April 1, and the mentor and reference letter deadline is June 15, 3 PM EST. The deadline for full proposals is July 6, 3:00 PM EST.
