As William T. Grant Scholars, the selected candidates will each receive a grant of $350,000 which will be distributed over a period of five years.
Early-career researchers in the field of social, behavioral or health sciences can apply for this program.
The Program prefers to support “applicants who already have a promising track record, but seek a qualitative shift in their trajectory as researchers.”
The Scholars should be ambitious in their research endeavors to tackle important questions that will advance theory, policy and practice for youth (8-25 years) and they use different methods, disciplinary perspectives and content knowledge in their studies.
Grants will be made available to organizations where the selected young researchers are working. Only tax-exempt nonprofit organizations or NGOs are eligible to receive these grants.
Application deadline: 7 July.
