Calvin K. Kazanjian Economics Foundation Grants
While the Kazanjian Foundation maintains a vital interest in the overall efforts to increase economic literacy, the Board of Trustees will give special attention to proposals and projects with national impact that addresses the following issues and audiences: 1) The Foundation has an abiding interest in elevating the nation’s understanding of the need for economic education. It will support programs that raise various public’s participation in economic education and/or create a demand for greater economic literacy; 2) The application of new strategies for teaching economics including on-line and web-based instruction is of interest to the Foundation; 3) Projects, policy studies, or programs that encourage measurement of economic understanding more often and/or more effectively are of specific interest; 4) The large number of students at risk of leaving school, and hence never effectively participating in the nation’s economic system are of concern to the Foundation. Programs that help otherwise disenfranchised youth and/or young adults with children learn to participate in the economic system are very important to the Foundation; 5) Helping those working in social service agencies, particularly social workers, provide financial and economic understanding is a focus of the Foundation's funding.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC)
Communities in the United States (US) and around the world are entering a new era of transformation in which residents and their surrounding environments are increasingly connected through rapidly-changing intelligent technologies. Concurrently, communities are unique and constantly evolving. Shifts in population size, demographics, economic opportunity, technology, built and natural environments, and available services all impact overall community culture, needs, and opportunities. A fundamental understanding of the complex, dynamic interactions between technology and society is essential for unlocking the potential benefits of smart and connected communities.

The JRF does not support research on non-aboriginal peoples, nor on peoples outside the Americas.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM
The Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) program accepts proposals for innovative research projects to foster ethical STEM research in all of the fields of science and engineering that the National Science Foundation (NSF) supports, including within interdisciplinary, inter-institutional and international contexts. CCE STEM research projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what constitutes responsible or irresponsible, just or unjust scientific practices and sociotechnical systems, and how to best instill students with this knowledge.

National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) - Public Scholar Program
The Public Scholar program supports well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership. Such scholarship might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic. The challenge is to make sense of a significant topic in a way that will appeal to general readers.
