Research grants are for investigations that provide actionable data on a particular field through objective analysis of a specific system, issue or condition that affects greater Houston. Examples include sociological studies, educational attainment research and independently conducted evaluations of Houston Endowment grantees. Applications are more likely to succeed when the proposed project is rigorously designed and has the potential to make a significant impact on the system, issue or condition being investigated. The qualifications of the investigator or team of investigators are important in any grant for research. To ensure that the research ultimately benefits the people affected by the system, issue or condition under investigation, the proposal should include a strategy for the thorough dissemination and use of the research results. The foundation does not support research unrelated to its program area priorities or research normally considered eligible for competitive peer review by federal and state grant programs.
