ORD & CFR Foundation Spotlight: Spencer Foundation

Are you an invesitgator conducting innovative research focused on improving education policy and practice?

Join the Office of Research Development and the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations for the next session in our Foundation Spotlight Series focused on the Spencer Foundation.

The Spencer Foundation is committed to supporting high-quality investigation of education, but maintains an awareness of the complexity of the educational enterprise, realizing it depends on students’ cognitive development, cultural values, and social backgrounds, teachers’ practices, knowledge, and attitudes, institutional structures, educational politics, markets for educated workers, and more. This approach leads the Foundation to be open to a wide variety of research from multiple disciplines.

This Foundation Spotlight will focus on three of Spencer’s grant programs: Lyle Spencer Research Awards (up to $1M); Small Research Grants (up to $50K); and the Midcareer Grant Program (up to $150K).
