William T. Grant Foundation

"Since its inception in 1936, the William T. Grant Foundation has had a remarkable constancy of purpose: to further the understanding of human behavior through research. The Foundation’s mission focuses on improving the lives of youth ages 8 to 25 in the United States. We invest primarily in high quality empirical studies. Our Current Research Interests are understanding and improving social settings such as families, schools, peer groups, and organizations, and how these social settings affect youth. Our Interests also focus on the use and influence of scientific evidence in policy and practice." [1]
