Research Grants, deadline August 1, 3 pm EST
Since our founding in 1936, the William T. Grant Foundation has worked to further the understanding of human behavior through research. Today, we 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.
These grants target researchers at all career stages for high-quality empirical projects that fit one of our two focus areas. Research grants are awarded three times each year and typically range between $100,000 and $1,000,000 and cover two to four years of support.

In this focus area, we support research to build, test, and increase understanding of approaches to reducing inequality in youth outcomes on the basis of race, ethnicity, economic standing, or immigrant origin status. We are interested in research on programs, policies, and practices to reduce inequality in academic, social, behavioral, and economic outcomes.
Improving the Use of Research Evidence:
In this focus area, we support research to identify, build, and test strategies to ensure that research evidence reaches the hands of decision makers, responds to their needs, and is used in ways that benefit youth. We are particularly interested in research on improving the use of evidence by state and local decision makers, mid-level managers, and intermediaries
