The Spencer Foundation’s COVID-19 Related Research Grants support education research projects that will contribute to understanding the rapid shifts in education in this time of crisis and change. They are especially interested in supporting two primary categories of projects. First, they are interested in supporting studies that aim to understand and disrupt the reproduction and deepening of educational inequality caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Second, they also recognize that in times of great disruption and change, there may be opportunities to remake and imagine anew forms of equitable education. Thus, they are also interested in research projects that are working to reimagine educational opportunities in these times.
