The William T. Grant Foundation provides resources for applicants, grantees, and those interested in the work we fund. For information about our focus, visit the Current Research Interests page.
Studying Inequality

From 2003 to 2013, the Foundation funded work on understanding everyday youth settings. In 2014, we retired that interest and launched an initiative on understanding programs, policies, and practices that may reduce inequality in youth outcomes. Social settings can serve as a vehicle for reducing inequality, so the resources developed under the social settings banner remain highly relevant. Here, you’ll find resources related to:

  1. Our conceptual framework for studying settings
  2. Assessment of the reliability and validity of measures of social settings
  3. Design and analysis of group-randomized trials
  4. Consultation services and Optimal Design software to aid in the development of such trials
