National Science Foundation (NSF) - Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
The National Science Foundation offers postdoctoral research fellowships to provide opportunities for recent doctoral graduates to obtain additional training, to gain research experience under the sponsorship of established scientists, and to broaden their scientific horizons beyond their undergraduate and graduate training. Postdoctoral fellowships are further designed to assist new scientists to direct their research efforts across traditional disciplinary lines and to avail themselves of unique research resources, sites, and facilities, including at foreign locations. NSF seeks to promote the participation of scientists from all segments of the scientific community, including those from underrepresented groups, in its research programs and activities; the postdoctoral period is considered to be an important level of professional development in attaining this goal.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Innovations in Graduate Education Program (IGE)
Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) projects will generate potentially transformative models for improvements in graduate education that prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers for the full range of possible STEM career paths to advance the nation’s STEM enterprise. IGE is dedicated solely to piloting, testing, and validating innovative approaches to graduate education and to generating the knowledge required for the customization and implementation of the most successful, transformative ones. The primary target population for IGE projects must be master’s and/or doctoral STEM students in a research-based degree program that requires a thesis or dissertation.
Russell Sage Foundation - Immigration and Immigrant Integration Grants
The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) and the Carnegie Corporation of New York invite proposals for new research that will strengthen the theory, methods and empirical knowledge about the effects of race, citizenship, legal status, and the interplay of politics and policy on immigrant outcomes. Because of limitations in government statistics, researchers are curating and analyzing data from both public and private sources (e.g., specialized surveys, administrative sources from tax, social security and citizenship and immigration services, as well as social media), and collecting their own data to measure the progress of the foreign-born and their children.
Surdna Foundation - Sustainable Environments Program
The program is working to overhaul the country's outdated and crumbling infrastructure with a new approach that will foster healthier, sustainable, and just communities. The foundation believes in the potential of what it calls "next generation infrastructure" to improve transit systems, make buildings more energy efficient, better manage water systems and rebuild regional food systems. Focusing on urban areas and their surrounding suburbs, the foundation seeks solutions that connect and improve these infrastructure systems in ways that maximize positive impacts and minimize negative environmental, economic and social consequences.
Russell Sage Foundation - Social Inequality Program
The Russell Sage Foundation's program on Social Inequality supports innovative research on whether rising economic inequality has affected social, political, and economic institutions, and the extent to which increased inequality has affected equality of opportunity, social mobility, and the inter-generational transmission of advantage. We seek investigator-initiated research projects that will broaden our understanding of the causes and consequences of rising economic inequalities in the United States.
Indiana University - Lilly Library Fellowships
The Lilly Library invites applications for visiting fellowships for research in residence in its collections. The Lilly Library is the principal rare book and manuscript library of Indiana University.
Hewlett Foundation - Environment Program
The Environment Program funds organizations working in areas that align with our program strategies and initiatives. The Environment Program accepts letters of inquiry for its western conservation, climate and energy, and serving Bay Area communities grantmaking at any time. The program’s grants are awarded solely for charitable purposes.
Herzog August Bibliothek - Doctoral and Young Scholars Fellowships
Thanks to the initiatives by private foundations (Dr. Günther Findel-Stiftung/Rolf und Ursula Schneider-Stiftung) fellowships programmes for doctoral candidates have been established at the Herzog August Bibliothek. These programmes are open to applicants from Germany and abroad and from all disciplines. Candidates who already hold scholarships (eg. state or college awards or grants from Graduiertenkollegs) or can apply for a rent subsidy to help finance their stay in Wolfenbüttel.
Association of American Geographers - Research Grants
The AAG provides small grants to support research and fieldwork. The selection committee will support proposals that in its judgment offer the prospect of obtaining substantial subsequent support from private foundations or federal agencies and that address questions of major import to the discipline. The committee will not approve awards for master's or doctoral dissertation research.
Association of American Geographers - Dissertation Research Grants
The American Association of Geographers (AAG) provides support for doctoral dissertation research in the form of small grants to PhD candidates of any geographic specialty. The fund supports doctoral dissertation research in geography.
