Grants to USA, Canada, and International investigators at nonprofit institutions and organizations for joint research projects on education. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Principal investigators will partner with educational institutions to provide insight into the processes, practices, and policies that improve education for students, educators, schools, universities, families, and communities.
Rigorous partnership work is intentionally organized to engage diverse forms of expertise and perspectives, across practitioners as well as scholars and disciplines, in knowledge generation around pressing problems of practice. Further, RPPs can facilitate the long-term accumulation of knowledge in new ways as researchers and practitioners work together to ask practitioner-relevant questions on key topics in specific settings over time. Many key problems of practice are historically saturated and require multiple perspectives and long-term engagement if sustainable and systemic change is to occur.
This grant program is open to partnerships between researchers and a broad array of practitioners. The Foundation defines practitioners as school districts, county offices of education, state educational organizations, universities, community-based organizations, out-of-school-time providers, informal educators, and other social sectors that significantly impact students’ lives. As such, the Foundation is open to applications from design-based research teams, networked improvement communities, placed-based research alliances, and other partnership arrangements.
While this grant program is open to all partnership configurations across a range of learning contexts, in addition to pre k-12 school systems, the Foundation especially encourages applications from partnerships that include scholars and institutions of higher education, rural geographic locations, and partnerships that deeply engage community-based organizations and families.
