The William T. Grant Foundation is accepting applications for its 2016 Distinguished Fellows Program.
The Fellowship is for mid-career policymakers, practitioners, and researchers who are influential within their role. Support is restricted to researchers seeking to work in policy or practice settings, or policymakers and practitioners seeking to work in research settings.
During the fellowship, researchers are immersed in policy or practice settings and policymakers and practitioners in a research setting. The goal of the program is to bridge the research, practice and policy communities to improve the lives of youth.
Proposed fellowships must fit the Grant Foundation’s research interests. The foundation currently supports research to understand and improve the everyday settings of youth in the United States.
Specifically, the foundation funds studies that enhance the understanding of how youth 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.
The Foundation generally chooses between 1 and 4 Fellows.
