The Sociological Initiatives Foundation, which was established to support research that furthers social change, including language learning and behavior and its intersection with social and policy questions, is accepting concept applications for its annual grant program.
The foundation specifically supports research that focuses on social policy objectives, institutional and educational practices, legislative and regulatory changes, linguistic issues (e.g., literacy, language loss and maintenance, language policy, language and national security, bilingualism, language and gender, language and law, language disabilities, language and health, language and education, different language cultures), and development of community capacity and organization of previously unorganized groups. Funded research should ideally build an organization or constituency's potential to expand public knowledge, impact policy, and create social change.
Examples of eligible applicants include academic-community partnerships, advocacy or community groups that conduct research that can withstand challenge in academic and policy arenas, and academics that organize or link to a constituency through their research.
Amount: $10,000 - $20,000
