Spencer Non-Traditional Learning

Field-Initiated Research Grant Programs

Research Grants

Our research grants are not designed for applicants to respond to a specific request – they are what you, scholars in the field, think we need to know more about.

The goal of all of our research grants is to support rigorous, intellectually ambitious and technically sound research that is relevant to the most pressing questions and compelling opportunities in education. We value work that fosters creative and open-minded scholarship, engages in deep inquiry, and examines robust questions related to education. We seek to support scholarship that develops new foundational knowledge that may also have a lasting impact on policy-making, practice, or educational discourse.
