In 2014, the Spencer Foundation announced the Lyle Spencer Research Awards grant program with the aim of supporting intellectually ambitious research projects that aspire to transform education. Since that time, Spencer has accepted proposals each of the past 7 years and to date has provided funding for 44 different research projects. We are now pausing the program to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of this funding opportunity on the field. No call will be issued for the 2021 review cycle. We anticipate providing an update in late 2021; please check back at that time for further information.
