Spencer Foundation Racial Equity Special Research Grants

The Spencer Foundation has launched the Racial Equity Special Research Grants program to support education research projects that will contribute to understanding and ameliorating racial inequality in education.

The foundation is interested in funding studies that aim to understand and disrupt the reproduction and deepening of educational inequality in education, and which seek to remake and imagine a new form of equitable education.

Thus, they are also interested in research projects that are working to reimagine educational opportunities in a multiplicity of education systems, levels, settings, and developmental ranges and that reach beyond documenting conditions and paradigms that contribute to persistent racial inequalities.

Their goal for this program is to support rigorous, intellectually ambitious, and technically sound research that is relevant to the most pressing questions and compelling opportunities in relation to racial equity in education.

As with other Spencer grant programs, this program is “field-initiated” in that proposal submissions are not required to be developed around a particular research topic, discipline, design, method, or geographic location.

Funding Information

The foundation will be accepting applications for projects ranging from one to five years with budgets up to $75,000.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Proposals to the Racial Equity Research Grants program must be for academic research projects that will contribute to understanding and ameliorating racial inequality in education, broadly conceived. Proposals for activities other than research are not eligible (e.g., program evaluations, professional development, curriculum development, scholarships, capital projects). Additionally, proposals for research studies focused on areas other than education, are not eligible.
  • Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-PIs applying for a Racial Equity Research Grant must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field, or appropriate experience in an education research-related profession.

    While graduate students may be part of the research team, they may not be named the PI or Co-PI on the proposal.

  • The PI must be affiliated with a non-profit organization that is willing to serve as the administering organization if the grant is awarded. The Spencer Foundation does not award grants directly to individuals.

    Examples include non-profit colleges, universities, school districts, and research facilities, as well as other non-profit organizations with a 501(c)(3) determination from the IRS.

  • Proposals are accepted from the U.S. and internationally, however, all proposals must be submitted in English and budgets must be proposed in US Dollars.

    Restrictions

  • Proposed budgets for this program are limited to $75,000 total and may not include indirect cost charges per Spencer’s policy.
  • Projects proposed may not be longer than 5 years in duration.
  • PIs and Co-PIs may not submit more than one application for a given deadline in this program.

    Spencer is making an exception for this research program wherein PIs or Co-PIs can have two projects under review in different programs.

    PIs or CO-PIs that currently have a proposal under review in a different program may submit to this program.

    However, the proposed project must be different from the one under review.

    Alternatively, a PI or CO-PI can choose to withdraw a proposal under review and resubmit it to this program.

    Apply by 15th December.
