RF CUNY Brown Bag Research Webinars: Russell Sage Foundation and William T. Grant Foundation
October 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Overview of Webinar: This webinar will provide researchers with information on funding opportunities in two philanthropic nonprofit organizations. The Russell Sage Foundation was established for the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States. It dedicates itself to strengthening the methods, data, and theoretical core of the social sciences to better understand societal problems and develop informed responses. The Russell Sage Foundation supports visiting scholars in residence, funds researchers in academic institutions, and supports programs intended to develop a new generation of social scientists. The William T. Grant Foundation focuses its support on projects that use research evidence that contribute to our understanding and improvement of society. Currently, the Foundation funds research that increases our understanding of: (1) the programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes, and (2) how policymakers and practitioners acquire, interpret, and use research evidence.
