*For a copy of the sponsor's guidelines please see:
The William T. Grant Scholars Program supports promising early-career researchers from diverse disciplines, who have demonstrated success in conducting high-quality research and are seeking to further develop and broaden their expertise.
Candidates are nominated by a supporting institution and must submit five-year research plans that demonstrate creativity, intellectual rigor, and a commitment to continued professional development. Every year, four to six William T. Grant Scholars are selected and each receives $350,000 distributed over a five-year period.
To be eligible for consideration, applicants must:
Only one candidate may be nominated in one year from any major division of an institution (e.g., College of Arts and Sciences, Medical School). The chair of the nominating division should submit a nominating statement to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, April 11, 2013. If there is more than one candidate per major division (school/college), the internal Proposal Review Committee will coordinate the selection process. The sponsor’s instructions recommend that applicants should begin the online application by early June 2013 and select “Notify” in the mentors and references. Applicant should ask their mentors and references to be aware of these emails as they may get caught by spam filters.
Investigators who identify a grant, award or fellowship program that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an Institution should immediately contact their Chairperson, Associate Dean for Research (or Dean, if no ADR) and the Office of Research (see below) if they intend to prepare a response. Failure to do so, or to meet the deadlines for submission of pre-proposal, will preclude submission of the application through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
