Coaching and Mentoring to Help Researchers Increase the Likelihood that Research is Used to Inform Policy

This award will provide focused coaching and mentoring to support Foundation grantees in cultivating relationships with policymakers and civic intermediaries, with the goal of increasing the likelihood that their research findings will be used to reduce inequality in youth outcomes.

The Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) will provide a cohort of 14-20 of the Foundation’s grantees with targeted coaching and mentoring to cultivate relationships with policymakers and promote the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth. The program will be grounded in the lessons that SSN has learned through its Foundation-supported workshop on policy engagement, which is based on findings from our use of research evidence portfolio, and in organizing similar activities for another foundation’s grantees.
