Programs

The Williams Institute’s Small Grants Program is designed to encourage new empirical research focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex populations at the intersections of various social, legal, and policy issues. The program also aims to strengthen research capacity among participants by supporting networking and knowledge exchange and providing mentorship, where needed, from Williams Institute scholars.

Trans Inclusion in Sports Small Grants Program 

The Williams Institute and Women’s Sports Foundation’s Trans Inclusion in Sports Small Grants Program is designed to encourage new research that is focused on trans students’ participation and inclusion in sports and related topics. The Program is designed to support work that will have a direct impact on law and policy, particularly on current debates regarding bans on trans students’ participation in K-12 school sports. Scholars from a variety of disciplines, including social sciences (e.g., economics, sociology, demography, social psychology), public health, law, and public policy, are encouraged to apply.
