William T. Grant Foundation Seeking Young Scholars to Study Youth

2/27/2008:   The William T. Grant Foundation has announced its annual competition for the William T. Grant Scholars Program, designed to foster career development among promising early-career researchers. The awards support five-year research plans that will significantly expand researchers' expertise in different disciplines, methods, or content areas.

The foundation is interested in supporting research to understand and improve the settings of youth ages 8-25 in the United States. These settings might include schools, youth-serving organizations, neighborhoods, families, and peer groups.

Applicants at all nonprofit institutions, both in the United States and abroad, are eligible. Four to six scholars will be selected, and each will receive $350,000 distributed over five years. Awards will be made to the applicant's institution. Visit www.wtgrantfoundation.org to apply. The deadline is July 9, 2008.
