The William T. Grant Scholars Program supports career development for promising early-career researchers. The program funds five-year research and mentoring plans that significantly expand junior researchers’ expertise in new disciplines, methods, and content areas. We recognize that early-career researchers are rarely given incentives or support to take such risks, so this award includes a mentoring component, as well as an emphasis on community and collaboration.
- Award recipients are designated as William T. Grant Scholars. Each year, four to six Scholars are selected and each receives up to $350,000, distributed over five years.
- Awards begin July 1 and are made to the applicant’s institution. The award must not replace the institution’s current support of the applicant’s research.
- Applicant received his/her terminal degree (e.g., Ph.D., M.D.) within seven years of submitting the application. For Ph.Ds this is the date the doctoral degree was conferred. In medicine, the seven-year maximum is dated from the completion of the first residency.
- Project advances the Foundation’s interest in understanding programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality or improving the use of research evidence.
- Applicant is employed at a tax-exempt organization.
DEADLINE: July 6 2017
