The William T. Grant Foundation seeks to fund high-quality empirical research with the goal of improving the lives of youth between the ages of 8 and 25 in the United States. To that end, the foundation has released its fourth Request for Proposals on Understanding the Acquisition, Interpretation, and Use of Research Evidence in Policy and Practice.

The purpose of the RFP is to help increase the understanding of how research evidence is acquired, interpreted, and used in policy and practice that affect youth.

In 2012, the foundation plans to support research projects with awards ranging from $100,000 to $600,000 for direct and indirect costs over two to three years.

The foundation will consider applications for newly initiated studies as well as add-on studies to existing projects. Add-on studies must address research questions not covered by prior funding from the W. T. Grant Foundation or other funders, although they may cover secondary analyses of existing data or collection and analyses of new data.

The foundation encourages interdisciplinary projects, and welcomes applications from researchers in various fields and disciplines such as anthropology, communications, economics, education, family studies, human development, organizational studies, political science, prevention research, psychology, public administration, public policy, public health, social work, and sociology.

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be employed at a nonprofit institution, either in the U.S. or abroad.

Applicants have two opportunities to submit Letters of Inquiry: by April 3 and by August 1, 2012.

Visit the Grant Foundation Web site for the complete Request for Proposals and application procedures.

Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it.
