Spencer Foundation: Lyle Spencer Research Awards Program

The Lyle Spencer Research Awards Program supports intellectually ambitious research projects that aspire to transform education with budgets between $525,000 and $1 million and project durations of up to five years. The Spencer Foundation accept applications for this signature program once per year.

A clearly articulated commitment to lasting improvement distinguishes the Lyle Spencer Awards from our other research award programs. The foundation hope to engage the research community in thinking big: to do work that is thoughtful, critical of prevailing assumptions, self-critical about the work and its limitations, and relevant to the aim of building knowledge for the “lasting improvement in education” that the founder Lyle Spencer challenged his foundation to promote.  

Deadline: February 27, 2020
