The William T. Grant Scholars Program supports
research conducted by promising young investigators in the social, behavioral,
or health sciences, aimed at understanding and improving youth social
settings (i.e., schools, youth-serving organizations, neighborhoods,
families, peer groups, and after-school programs). Successful proposals
should focus on how these settings work, how they affect youth development,
and how they can be improved as well as when, how, and under what conditions
research is in policies and practices that affect youth. Awards of $350K
are distributed during a five year period. Candidates must be faculty

time spent as a postdoctoral fellow. NOTE: Each academic division of
