Webinar: The Institutional Challenge Grant: An Overview of the Program and How to Apply
The Institutional Challenge Grant encourages university-based research institutes, schools, and centers to build sustained research-practice partnerships with public agencies or nonprofit organizations in order to reduce inequality in youth outcomes. To do so, research institutions will need to shift their policies and practices to value collaborative research. They will also need to build the capacity of researchers to produce relevant work and the capacity of agency and nonprofit partners to use research.
To kick off the fifth annual Institutional Challenge Grant competition this spring, Senior Program Officer Lauren Supplee hosted a webinar to discuss the background and goals of the program, as well as the award, the application, and the review process. Supplee and Foundation President Adam Gamoran also answered questions from attendees and shared practical advice on how to prepare a competitive proposal.
