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.
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.
