William T. Grant Distinguished Fellows Program to Support Youth Research

Here’s a good grant opportunity for those working or studying D & D and youth: The William T. Grant Foundation (http://wtgrantfoundation.org/) has announced a new Request for Proposals for its Distinguished Fellows Program for mid-career researchers, policy makers, and practitioners. The goal of the Distinguished Fellows Program is to increase the supply of, demand for, and use of high-quality research in the service of improved youth outcomes. The program is intended to help researchers strengthen the ways in which their work reflects an understanding of policy and practice, and help policy makers and practitioners enhance their capacities to recognize and use high-quality research. To accomplish this, the fellowship allows mid-career practitioners/policy makers to spend extended time working in a research setting or researchers to spend extended time working in a practitioner/policy-making setting.

The foundation selects between two and four William T. Grant Distinguished Fellows annually. Each fellow receives up to $175,000 for the total duration of the fellowship, which may range from six months to two years, depending on the proposed design. For details, see the foundation website. The deadline for Letters of Inquiry is January 10, 2008.
