The Alo Grant is investing in individuals or departments to initiate and complete a research project in one of three streams:

General Admissions Fund

Promotion of projects that focus broadly on all aspects of admission in the professions. This may include work that focuses on the advancement of admissions-related knowledge to improve the quality of recruitment, screening, and selection in professional programs.

Strategic Fund

Promotion of projects that focus primarily on the role of the CASPer test in admissions in the professions. This may include work that focuses on the impact of CASPer and other non-academic metrics evaluating the incremental value in the admissions process, and longitudinal outcomes in-program and beyond.

Diversity Fund

Promotion of projects that focus on diversity and inclusion in field of admissions. This may include research that identifies or strives to eliminate systemic barriers that impede career advancement, or fosters recruitment or retention of underrepresented groups in the professions.
