The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion is now accept­ing appli­ca­tions for research projects that will uti­lize its Mak­ing Con­nec­tions dataset. This oppor­tu­ni­ty is avail­able through the Foundation’s Emerg­ing Schol­ars Ini­tia­tive, which will fund up to three research awards of $10,000 each. All three awards are des­ig­nat­ed to enhance the research tra­jec­to­ry of schol­ars of color.

Key Details

Emerg­ing Schol­ars research projects must:

  • Use the Foundation’s Mak­ing Con­nec­tions dataset to inves­ti­gate the well-being of kids and fam­i­lies in low-income communities.
  • Run no longer than 12 months and be com­plete by March 12018.
  • Lead to a pub­lish­able manuscript.

Select­ed appli­cants will receive career devel­op­ment guid­ance with up to 40 hours of free men­tor­ing from a schol­ar who has in-depth knowl­edge of the Mak­ing Con­nec­tions dataset.

Ques­tions are wel­come through Novem­ber 302016.

All appli­ca­tion mate­ri­als must be sub­mit­ted by Decem­ber 15, 2016. The selec­tion com­mit­tee will noti­fy appli­cants of award deci­sions by Jan­u­ary 312017.
