The 2024 William T. Grant Scholars Program supports professional development of promising early-career researchers. The grant funds 5-year research and mentoring plans that significantly expand researchers’ expertise in new disciplines, methods, and content areas to address problems of inequality or to improve the use of research evidence.

Applicants should have a record of conducting high-quality research and an interest in shifting their trajectories as researchers.
