Four New Research Grants to Build Theory and Evidence in our Focus Areas

We are proud to announce four new research grants, including three to support studies on reducing inequality in youth outcomes and one to support a study on improving the use of research evidence.

Approved at the Foundation’s fall Board meeting, these grants will build theory and empirical evidence in our two focus areas.

The next deadline to submit a letter of inquiry for a research grant in either of our focus areas is May 5, 2021. Sign up for the Foundation’s mailing list to stay up to date on all funding opportunities and announcements.
