Schneider Selected for the William T. Grant Scholars Class of 2026
April 28, 2021
William Schneider is one of five early-career researchers selected for the William T. Grant Scholars Class of 2026. The William T. Grant Scholars Program seeks to contribute to a bright new generation of scholars who will bring rigorous research to youth policies, programs, and practices in the U.S. Scholars receive $350,000 to execute rigorous five-year research plans that stretch their skills and knowledge into new disciplines, content areas, or methods.
Schneider will study how housing and income support policies reduce or prevent child maltreatment, particularly child neglect, among families facing economic hardship and link individuals from Illinois administrative child welfare data to data from the Chicago sites of three rigorous pre-existing employment and housing experiments.
