Grants and in-kind support to USA nonprofit institutions for research to improve the lives of American children and youth. Funding is intended to support the effective exploration of policies and activities that address inequality for young people between the ages of 5 and 25. Priority is given for studies about reducing inequality on the basis of race, ethnicity, economic standing, language minority status, or immigrant origins.
The Foundation's research interests center on studies that examine ways to reduce inequality in youth outcomes. The Foundation welcomes descriptive studies that clarify mechanisms for reducing inequality or elucidate how or why a specific program, policy, or practice operates to reduce inequality. The Foundation also welcomes intervention studies that examine attempts to reduce inequality. Finally, the Foundation welcomes studies that improve the measurement of inequality in ways that can enhance the work of researchers, practitioners, or policymakers.
Applications for research grants on reducing inequality must:

Funding is available for major grants and for officers' research grants for smaller projects.
Examples of projects can be found at http://wtgrantfoundation.org/library/uploads/2021/11/2022-Application-Guide-Research-Grants-on-RI.pdf#page=6
In addition to financial support, the Foundation invests significant time and resources in capacity-building for research grantees. They provide opportunities for connections with other scholars, policymakers, and practitioners, and organize learning communities for grantees in each focus area. Such meetings allow grantees to discuss challenges, seek advice from peers and colleagues, and collaborate across projects. To strengthen grantees’ capacities to conduct and implement strong qualitative and mixed-methods work, the Foundation provides access to a consultation service focused on those methods.
Only studies that 1) align with the stated research interests of this program and 2) relate to the outcomes of young people between the ages of 5 and 25 in the United States are eligible for consideration.
