Research Grants on Reducing Inequality: An Overview of the Program and How to Apply

April 17, 2024
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

The Foundation’s focus on reducing inequality grew out of our view that research can do more than help us understand the problem of inequality—it can generate effective responses. Our program of research grants on reducing inequality supports studies to build, test, or increase understanding of programs, policies, or practices to reduce inequality in the academic, social, behavioral, or economic outcomes of young people ages 5-25 in the United States. We prioritize studies that aim to reduce inequalities that exist along dimensions of race, ethnicity, economic standing, language minority status, or immigrant origins. We also encourage research on reducing inequality for LGBTQ youth, particularly in intersection with at least one of the prioritized dimensions

Research Grants on Improving the Use of Research Evidence: An Overview of the Program and How to Apply

In this program, we support studies that aim to reveal the strategies, mechanisms, or conditions for improving research use. We also encourage evaluations of deliberate efforts to increase routine and beneficial uses of research in decision-making and testing whether strategies that improve the use of research evidence in turn improve decision-making and youth outcomes. We are also interested in measurement studies to develop the tools necessary to capture changes in the nature and degree of research use. Finally, we welcome critical perspectives that inform studies’ research questions, methods, and interpretation of findings.
