The Spencer Foundation aims to fund academic work that contributes to the improvement of education, defining the term broadly to allow for projects across a broad array of topics and disciplines. Examples of previously funded projects include an experimental study of how college students use visual representations in solving math problems; a study exploring the process of racial and rural identity formation among African American high-school students who attend de facto segregated schools in the rural South; and a mixed-methods study focusing on the different types of knowledge novice and experienced teachers draw on in teaching reading comprehension.
Grants will be in awarded in amounts of up to $50,000.
Please Note: The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) does not administer this funding opportunity.
