With the generous support of the Edward W. Hazen Foundation (a private foundation which is committed to supporting organizing and leadership of young people and communities of color in dismantling structural inequity based on race and class), URBAN.Boston is pleased to announce the availability of seed funding to help incubate an education-related collaborative research project spanning July 2015 to November 2015. Specifically, the seed grant award is to be used for (1) the development of a new collaborative research proposal or (2) the development of a new phase of an existing collaborative research project. The award will be up to $1,000 and must be used for the planning of a collaborative research project (that may or may not be submitted elsewhere for funding); funds are not intended for the execution of collaborative research. Funding can be used for meeting expenses, consultant fees (e.g., grant writer, facilitator), transportation, stipends for community volunteers, data collection for pilot studies, and/or other non-personnel expenses. The funding may not be used for salaries or fringe benefits.
Proposals are due by 5pm on May 29, 2015. Click here to download full application instructions.
