Sponsor William T. Grant Foundation
Deadline Jan 05, 2013 (letter of inquiry)
Eligibility Applicants must be influential mid-career practitioners, policymakers, or researchers.
The program is designed to increase the supply of, demand for, and use of high-quality research in the service of improved youth outcomes. To accomplish this goal, the program gives influential mid-career researchers the opportunity to immerse themselves in practice or policy settings and conversely influential practitioners and policymakers the opportunity to work in research settings. Applicants must propose one or two tax-exempt private and governmental organizations that are willing to "house" and mentor the Fellow, and must submit a proposal that advances the foundation's Current Research Interests: The foundation supports research that enhances our understanding of how settings work, how they affect youth development, and how they can be improved; and when, how, and under what conditions research evidence is used in policy and practice that affect youth, and how its use can be improved.
