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).
Retirement Research Foundation (RRF) - RRF Responsive Grants
Through its grantmaking programs, The Retirement Research Foundation (RFF) fulfills its commitment to fund projects that improve the quality of life for seniors. As the issues facing an aging population gain ever-greater urgency, the Foundation remains committed to supporting innovative solutions that enhance the lives of older Americans.
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.
National Institute of Justice (NIJ) - Research and Evaluation on Gangs and Gang Violence
NIJ is seeking applications for the funding of research and program evaluation projects that inform efforts to reduce street gang activity and violence in the United States. Gangs and gang members are responsible for a large amount of crime and violence in many localities, and are responsible for a disproportionate share in those communities most afflicted by crime and violence. NIJ will support scientifically rigorous research and evaluation projects designed to produce findings with high practical utility for gang prevention, intervention, enforcement, or reentry strategies. This solicitation supports the U.S. Department of Justice’s priority to prevent and reduce crime.
Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation - Grants
Steadfastly adhering to the principles and examples of its namesakes, Lynde and Harry Bradley, The Bradley Foundation envisions a nation invigorated by the principles and institutions that uphold our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The program's priority giving areas and funding decisions of The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation are the responsibility of its Board of Directors. The Foundation’s grantmaking policies and priorities may be modified at the Board’s discretion.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Critical Techniques and Technologies for Advancing Foundations and Applications of Big Data Science & Engineering (BIGDATA)
The National Science Foundation's (NSF) research program on Critical Techniques, Technologies and Methodologies for Advancing Foundations and Applications of Big Data Sciences and Engineering (BIGDATA) seeks to further develop data science, a transdisciplinary field of research, to understand phenomena through data analytics and massive computation on vast amounts of empirical data. This solicitation invites proposals that focus on the foundations of data science and innovative applications of data science. Of particular interest are proposals for which data science and the availability of big data are creating new opportunities for research not possible before, as well as proposals that explore research topics identified by participating NSF directorates listed in this solicitation.
National Institutes of Health (NIH) - T2 Translational Research: Research Leading to New Health Care Practices, Community Programs and Policies Affecting Older Persons (R21)
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages exploratory/developmental research projects on translational research (T2) directed towards development of health care practices, community programs and policies,including monitoring and quality improvement for pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches for preventing and treating key health issues affecting the elderly.
William T. Grant Foundation - Research Grants
The William T. Grant Foundation supports high-quality research that is relevant to policies and practices that affect the lives of young people ages 5 to 25 in the United States. The foundation funds research that increases the understanding of programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes, and research that identifies, builds, and tests strategies to improve the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth.
University of Southern Indiana (USI) - Center for Communal Studies - Research Travel Grant
The Center for Communal Studies at the University of Southern Indiana annually invites applications for a Research Travel Grant to fund research at the Communal Studies Collection at USI's David L. Rice Library. The Communal Studies Collection's rich archival materials hold information on over 600 historic and contemporary communal societies, utopias and intentional communities. A complete listing of communities can be found on the library website.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - International Research Experiences for Students (IRES)
The International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program supports international research and research-related activities for U.S. science and engineering students. The IRES program contributes to development of a diverse, globally-engaged workforce with world-class skills. IRES focuses on active research participation by undergraduate or graduate students in high quality international research, education and professional development experiences in NSF-funded research areas.
