We are pleased to announce the finalists for the 2019 William T. Grant Scholars Program. Ten early-career researchers were selected from a pool of 52 applicants after a rigorous review by our staff and Selection Committee.
On Tuesday, November 27, program officer Kim DuMont and grantee Drew Gitomer held a webinar to highlight measures and methods from a range of methodological traditions that have been employed by researchers to assess the use of research evidence in disparate policy and practice domains.
Applying for Research Grants
This year, to give potential applicants a more centralized view of the research priorities, application processes, and selection criteria for research grants in a given focus area, we have created a unique application guide and webpage for each.
Applicants can now visit overview pages, browse resources, and access application guides that are tailored specifically to research grants on reducing inequality and research grants on improving the use of research evidence, respectively.
