William T. Grant Foundation Scholars Program

 

William T. Grant Foundation

Scholars Program

Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.

 

Institutional Eligibility:  An institution may nominate more than one candidate, but only one applicant may be nominated from a major division of an institution each year (e.g., College of Arts and Sciences, Medical School).

 

PI Eligibility: 

  • Applicants must have received their terminal degree within seven years of submitting their ap­plication. We calculate this by adding seven years to the date the doctoral degree was conferred. In medicine, the seven-year maximum is dated from the completion of the first residency.

 

  • Applicants must be employed in career-ladder positions. For many applicants, this means hold­ing a tenure-track position in a university. Applicants in other types of organizations should be in positions in which there is a pathway to advancement in a research career at the organization and the organization is fiscally responsible for the applicant’s position. The award may not be used as a post-doctoral fellowship.

 

  • Applicants outside the United States are eligible. As with U.S. applicants, they must pursue re­search that has compelling policy or practice implications for youth in the United States.

 

  • Applicants of any discipline are eligible.

 

The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).

 

Proposal Limit: 1 per college or major division

 

Summary:  The William T. Grant Scholars Program is for early-career researchers in the social, behavioral, and health sciences. We encourage Scholars to tackle important questions that will advance theory, policy, and practice for youth. Applicants identify new methods, disciplines, or content they want to learn, and propose five-year research plans that foster their growth in those areas. We recognize that early-career researchers are rarely given incentives or support to take such risks, so this award includes a mentoring component. Potential Scholars should have a promising track record of conducting high-quality research, but want to pursue a significant shift in their trajectories as researchers.
