Roadmap Connecting Researchers and Practitioners to Relevance for Postsecondary Policy Interests
Smith, Zakiya W.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v47 n3 Article 8 2017
Those interested in positioning research to be used by policymakers or funded by foundations often wonder how best to do so. Foundation and policy interests can intersect, as philanthropy and policy both aim to provide solutions to big societal problems. This article explores themes from federal financial aid policy, in particular, suggesting that relevance can come from attention to the national mood, aligning solutions with identified problems, and condensing ideas for more immediate connection.
