The program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions.
Institute of International Education (IIE) - Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) - Core Fulbright Scholar Program
The Core Fulbright Scholar Program offers over 500 teaching, research or combination teaching/research awards in over 125 countries. Opportunities are available for college and university faculty and administrators as well as for professionals, artists, journalists, scientists, lawyers, independent scholars and many others. In addition to several new program models designed to meet the changing needs of U.S. academics and professionals, Fulbright is offering more opportunities for flexible, multi-country grants.
Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation - Dissertation Fellowships
These fellowships are designed to contribute to the support of the doctoral candidate to enable him or her to complete the thesis in a timely manner. Questions that interest the foundation concern violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, among other subjects.
Alexander von Humboldt Foundation - Research Fellowships
This fellowship enables highly-qualified scientists and scholars from abroad who are just embarking on their academic careers and who completed their doctorates less than four years ago to spend extended periods of research (6-24 months) in Germany.
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.
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.
Association for the Sociology of Religion (ASR) - Fichter Research Grants
Fichter Research Grants are awarded annually by ASR to members of the Association involved in promising sociological research on women in religion or on the intersection between religion and gender or religion and sexualities. Dissertation research qualifies for funding, as does postdoctoral research by junior and senior scholars. Although these grants are open to scholars who are pursuing or currently have a PhD in a range of disciplines, the proposed research must be sociological in nature. Applicants must also be members of the Association for the Sociology of Religion at the time of application.
Johns Hopkins University - American Institute for Contemporary German Studies - DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship
The DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship Program, funded by a generous grant from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), is designed to bring both senior and junior scholars and specialists working on key issues of central importance to the German-American relationship to American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) for research stays of two to three consecutive months each.
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.
