Apply for a 2014-2015 William T. Grant Scholars Award
The 2014-2015 William T. Grant Scholars Program Application Guide is available on our website. This year, we are accepting applications related to our two Current Research Interests: (1) programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality and (2) the use of research evidence. This will be the last year for applicants to submit under our recently retired initiative on understanding youth social settings. Applicants should also note that the Foundation has expanded its age range of interest to include youth between the ages of 5 and 25.
The William T. Grant Scholars Program promotes the professional development of promising early-career researchers from diverse disciplines with a strong track record of conducting high-quality research and a commitment to expanding their own expertise and skills. Applicants submit rigorous research proposals paired with detailed mentoring plans to help them conduct stronger scholarship.Â Each year, four to six Scholars are selected for this prestigious five-year award of $350,000. Applications are due this year by July 9, 2014, and awards will be announced in March 2015. Learn more…
