  • Relevant: Touching on the most pressing questions and opportunities in education and learning, wherever it occurs.
  • Equitable: Representing a diversity of scholars and scholarship and contributing to more just learning environments.
  • Collaborative: Engaging multiple voices and disciplinary perspectives.
  • Transformative: Reaching beyond academic audiences and leading to lasting improvement in education and learning.

Funding Information

  • Proposed budgets for this program are limited to $50,000 total and may not include indirect cost charges per Spencer’s policy.
  • Projects proposed may not be longer than 5 years in duration.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Proposals to the Research Grants on Education program must be for academic research projects that aim to study education. 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 Small Research Grant on Education 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 U.S. Dollars.
