Grants of up to $20,000 to USA and Territories nonprofit organizations and academic institutions for research projects addressing social change. Priority will be given to projects promoting racial justice and equitable legal practices including projects on racism, classism, xenophobia, exploitation, and gender bias, or the violation of human rights and freedoms. Research that furthers language learning and behavior and its intersection with social and policy questions is also supported.
The Foundation supports research that focuses on improving services and systems and increasing positive social and physical conditions through:
Language issues include 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 second language acquisition.
In the context of social and racial inequality dating back centuries, the Foundation supports projects that address institutional rather than individual or behavioral change. It seeks to fund research and initiatives that provide insight into sociological and linguistic issues that can help specific groups and or communities expand opportunities and challenge injustices.
