Soros Foundation - Open Society Foundations - Open Society Fellowship
The Open Society Fellowship was founded in 2008 to support individuals pursuing innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges. The fellowship funds work that will enrich public understanding of those challenges and stimulate far-reaching and probing conversations within the Open Society Foundations and in the world.
Tinker Foundation - Institutional Grants
The Foundation’s Institutional Grants program has the goal of creating the conditions for the development of effective policy changes that improve the lives of Latin Americans. The Foundation’s funding is directed to three program areas in which focused, expert research and innovation have the potential to make significant, positive impact.
Sarah Scaife Foundation Grants
The Sarah Scaife Foundation’s grant program is primarily directed toward public policy programs that address major domestic and international issues.
Russell Sage Foundation - Visiting Scholars Program
The Russell Sage Foundation's Visiting Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for select scholars in the social, economic and behavioral sciences to pursue their research and writing while in residence at the Foundation’s New York headquarters. Research carried out by Visiting Scholars constitutes an important part of the Foundation’s ongoing effort to analyze and understand the complex and shifting nature of social and economic life in the United States.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Science, Technology, and Society (STS) - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRI)
STS is an interdisciplinary field that investigates topics relating to the scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical (STEM) disciplines, including medical science. STS research uses historical, philosophical, and social scientific methods to investigate STEM theory and practice with regards to history and socio-cultural formation, philosophical underpinnings, and impacts of science and technology on quality of life, culture, and society.
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) - Digital Humanities Advancement Grants (DHAG)
Digital Humanities Advancement Grants (DHAG) support digital projects throughout their lifecycles, from early start-up phases through implementation and long-term sustainability. Experimentation, reuse, and extensibility are hallmarks of this grant category, leading to innovative work that can scale to enhance research, teaching, and public programming in the humanities.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Smart and Connected Health (SCH): Connecting Data, People and Systems
This solicitation supports fundamental research to realize the promise of disruptive transformations in public health, medicine and healthcare. These transformations will require well-coordinated, multi-disciplinary approaches that complements the long-standing disease and application-focused research efforts with fundamental, innovative, and high-risk research that draws from multiple domains of computer and information science, engineering, and the social, behavioral and economic sciences. Proposals can address computational, algorithmic, real-time and systemic level issues, as well as models of uptake, diffusion, and use of the resulting solutions amongst different demographic and social groups. Research can also explore advances in science in remote or unconventional settings, the role of appropriate incentives, the risk of potential disparities, and the associated legal and ethical considerations. Accordingly, this interagency solicitation represents the collaboration of NSF and the NIH.
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) - Evidence for Action: Investigator-Initiated Research to Build a Culture of Health
Evidence for Action (E4A), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, funds research that expands the evidence base needed to build a Culture of Health. Our mission is to support rigorously designed quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research that yields convincing findings regarding the population health, well-being, and equity impacts of specific policies, programs and partnerships. We are especially interested in research examining the health impacts of programmatic or policy interventions that address factors outside the domain of health care services or public health practice.
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) - Evidence for Action: Making Health a Shared Value
The purpose of this call for proposals (CFP) is to improve our understanding of the Action Area 1 drivers* and outcomes related to health, well-being and equity, particularly with respect to disadvantaged children and families. A current lack of empirical evidence limits our ability to identify strategies with the potential to “drive” this Action Area forward. In addition, although these drivers are strongly correlated with individual health outcomes, we lack compelling evidence of the causal directions and the magnitudes of effects on health, well-being, and equity.
Herb Block Foundation - Defending Basic Freedoms
This program helps safeguard the basic freedoms guaranteed in the American Bill of Rights, to help eliminate all forms of prejudice and discrimination, and to assist government agencies to be more accountable to the public. The Herb Block Foundation will also consider contemporary societal issues that may arise.
