03 Mar Equity in Grants Series: Funding Opportunities for Racial Equity – The Spencer Foundation
Posted at 20:15h in Competency One, Funding OpportunitiesAs part of a series throughout Black History Month, Assel Grant Services (AGS) provided various resources on racial equity to help grant professionals become better equipped to guide their organizations towards more equitable services, find funding, and better articulate into grant proposals the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work their organizations are already doing. Topics included writing with a racial equity lens, resources for your toolbox, and measuring progress. Last week, we highlighted a federal opportunity addressing racial equity in community health. This week we are wrapping up the series with a foundation opportunity for racial equity research in education. The Spencer Foundation is accepting applications for Racial Equity Research Grants to support education research projects that will contribute to understanding and ameliorating racial inequality in education. The Spencer Foundation invests in research that cultivates learning and transforms lives, with goals to support projects that:
- create a better society;
- support high-quality education;
- broaden the diversity of scholars and scholarship in research;
- strengthen the impact for improving educational practice; and
- make education research more accessible.
