This is an information session to introduce the research programming and scholarly competitions offered by the William T. Grant Foundation.

Event Information

The Research Development Office is hosting a virtual information session on Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 9 to 10 a.m. 

The William T. Grant Foundation invests in high-quality research focused on reducing inequality in youth outcomes and improving the use of research evidence in decisions that affect young people in the United States. This presentation will focus on what it means for research to fit the two funding priorities of reducing inequality and improving the use of research evidence.
