We are pleased to announce the release of our 2017 Request for Proposals. Brief "letters of interest" are due May 8, 2017. For the 2017 competition, the HMSO invites proposals from University of Chicago faculty and graduate students, for a range of study types. We are especially interested in innovations occurring in preschool and public elementary and secondary school settings that can promote successful pathways from public schools to the labor market. Two kinds of intervention are of particular interest: those occurring early (during pre-elementary and elementary years) that show potential to assist children who otherwise would be at high risk of entering high school with poor academic and non-academic skills; and those that occur later (during the secondary school years) that show great potential to enable young people with comparatively low skills to gain the skills, dispositions, and information needed for successful transitions into the labor market. To learn more, read the full text of the 2017 RFP.
