Grants of up to $20,000 to USA doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty to conduct research projects that promote greater awareness about, and understanding of, student success throughout the country by using a combination of data sources. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. in the past seven years.
Studies that can plausibly identify the effects of policies, practices, and conditions on achievement inequality or the effects of achievement gaps on other outcomes and forms of inequality will be preferred over descriptive or correlational studies. The Foundation is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in studies aimed at understanding how to reduce educational inequality or subsequent forms of inequality.
Studies may make use of variation across places (schools, school districts, counties, metropolitan areas, states), grades (grades 3-8), years (2009-2016), birth cohorts (there are 13 birth cohorts in the data – born roughly 1995-2007), and student subgroups to identify mechanisms that affect inequality.
Examples of the types of research topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
