Spencer Foundation COVID-19 Research Opportunities

Spencer Foundation is issuing a call for proposals for a COVID-19 Related Special Grant Cycle to support education research projects that will contribute to understanding the rapid shifts in education in this time of crisis and change. As with other Spencer grant programs, this program is “field-initiated.” We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis with budgets up to $50,000 for projects ranging from one to three years. We will review applications received by May 4th, again on May 18th, and again on June 8th. Our 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 education in these times.

Please note: The COVID-19 Related Research Grants are distinct from our regular Small Grant Program. We will begin accepting the next round of Small Grant applications May 1
