Grants to university-based schools, research institutes, and centers to foster youth-focused research partnerships with nonprofit organizations or public agencies. The purpose of the program is to reduce inequality in youth outcomes. Eligible partnerships will focus on serving youth in the areas of justice, education, mental health, child welfare, workforce development, and immigration.
Proposals are encouraged especially from teams with African American, Latino, Native American, and Asian American members in leadership roles. The partnership leadership team should include the principal investigator from the research institution and the lead from the public agency or nonprofit organization.
Research institutions will need to address four important goals:
- Build a sustained institutional partnership with a public agency or nonprofit organization that serves young people in the United States.
- Pursue a joint research agenda to reduce inequality in youth outcomes.
- Create institutional change to value the partnership and its work.
- Develop the capacity of the partners to collaborate and use research evidence.
For more details about the program goals, see http://wtgrantfoundation.org/library/uploads/2019/04/2019-ICG-Application-Guide.pdf#page=5.
The partnership must conduct research to build, test, and increase understanding of programs, policies, or practices to reduce inequality in the outcomes of young people ages 5-25 in the United States.
The Funding source is particularly interested in behavioral, academic, social, and economic youth outcomes. However, research in other areas will be considered.
