William T. Grant Foundation Funding Opportunities

The research grants program supports high-quality field-initiated studies that are relevant to policies and practices that affect the lives of young people ages 5 to 25 in the United States.

Proposed research must address questions that align with one of the Foundation’s two focus areas.

Research proposals are evaluated on the basis of their fit with a given focus area; the strength and feasibility of their designs, methods, and analyses; and their potential to inform change and contribute to bodies of knowledge that can improve the lives of young people.
