The Research-Practice Partnership (RPP) Grants Program is intended to support education research projects that engage in collaborative and participatory partnerships with project budgets up to $400,000 and durations of up to three years. They accept Intent to Apply forms once a year in this program. Spencer Foundation views partnerships as an important approach to knowledge generation and the improvement of education, broadly construed. Over the long term, they anticipate that research conducted by RPPs will result in new insights into the processes, practices, and policies that improve education for learners, educators, families, communities, and institutions where learning and teaching happen (e.g., schools, universities, museums, other workplaces).
NOTE: This category of grants applications is being highlighted because in the past, they have funded grants relating to intercultural competence, diversity, and dialogue. But there are other categories as well, including Fellowships for Scholars and Journalists, and Conference Grants.
