W.t. Grant Foundation
Category: Children, Youth & Families
DescriptionThe Foundation focuses its grantmaking on supporting research to improve the lives of youth ages 8 to 25 in the United States. It’s accepting letters of inquiry for its field-initiated grants program. Current research interests include understanding how social settings such as families, schools, peer groups, and organizations work; how they affect youth; and how they can be improved. The Foundation also focuses on when, how, and under what conditions research evidence is used in policy and practice that affect youth, and how its use can be improved. Applicants must be employed at a nonprofit institution in the United States or abroad and submit a project that is consistent with the Foundation’s current research interests. The project must address issues that have compelling relevance for theory, policies, and/or practices affecting youth between the ages of 8 and 25 in the United States. Projects may also work with a vulnerable sub-population of those youth. Projects must reflect high standards of evidence and rigorous methods. Letters of inquiry are requested. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
