National Institutes of Health (NIH) - Funding for Exploratory Research in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are still experiencing collective, territory-wide disruptions following hurricanes Irma and Maria, which creates a unique challenge to recovery. Researchers have previously identified environmental risk factors to public health that follow natural disasters: exposure to chemical or biological toxins in water, air, or soil; waterborne infectious agents; physical hazards due to fallen debris or damage to structures; exposure to extreme heat or cold. Several NIH institutes now seek to extend disaster research beyond documenting the known general risk factors that populations face and their health impact by funding exploratory or developmental research projects through the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) Time-Sensitive Research on Health Risk and Resilience After Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands (R21, Clinical Trial Not Allowed).

Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) - BCFN Yes! Research Grant Competition
Since the very first edition, BCFN YES! has embodied the identity and the ambition of the BCFN Foundation. Indeed, it brings together young people from around the world, with different disciplinary approaches, and invites them to come up with practical projects to create a better balance between food sustainability and environmental sustainability. The goal of the contest is to find solutions to the food paradoxes, through innovative, practical and multi-disciplinary ideas. The 2018 BCFN YES! calls for concrete research proposals for making more sustainable the agri-food system (in terms of environmental, social, health and/or economic aspects), that are coherent with the BCFN research projects.
Volkswagen Stiftung - Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Humanities
These postdoctoral fellowships in the Humanities are jointly offered by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Volkswagen Foundation. They aim at enabling postdoctoral researchers currently based at academic institutions in the U.S. to spend some time conducting studies at universities or research institutes in Germany. These studies can either be undertaken at a university or research institute of the candidate’s choice or at a cooperating institute (listed below). Through these fellowships, junior scholars are offered a chance to: pursue research in the Humanities in an international environment; take advantage of interdisciplinary scholarly discussion and build research networks; use local libraries, archives, and other facilities, and attend international conferences, symposia, etc.; gain experiences in a non-American university system by teaching courses, depending on the opportunities offered by the respective host institution.
Johns Hopkins University - American Institute for Contemporary German Studies - DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship

Foundation for Community Association Research (FCAR) - Byron Hanke Fellowship
The Foundation for Community Association Research (FCAR) awards its Byron Hanke Fellowship to selected graduate students to implement research projects related to the development, management and governance of common interest communities and their community associations. Projects may focus on applied or theoretical research and must be done in conjunction with the fellow’s graduate studies. The application should clearly explain the purpose and anticipated outcomes of the project and show how it will expand or enhance existing theory, knowledge, or data collection and help to advance the Foundation’s mission.
