The Foundation’s mission is to support research to improve the lives of young people ages 5-25 in the United States.
One way that we pursue this mission is by investing in high-quality field-initiated studies on reducing inequality in youth outcomes.
We prioritize studies about reducing inequality on the basis of race, ethnicity, economic standing, language minority status, or immigrant origins.
1) Identify a specific inequality in youth outcomes, and show that the outcomes are currently unequal by engaging with the extant literature on the causes and consequences of inequality
2) Make a compelling case for the basis of inequality the study will address
3) Articulate how findings from applicants research will help build, test, or increase understanding of a specific program, policy, or practice to reduce the specific inequality that they have identified.
a) are made to tax-exempt organizations
b) range from US$100,000 - U$600,000
c) cover 2-3 yrs

Our focus on reducing inequality grew out of our view that research can do more than help us understand the problem of inequality—it can generate effective responses.
