National Science Foundation (NSF) - Dear Colleague Letter: NSF Accepting Proposals Related to Hurricane Harvey
The National Science Foundation (NSF) and its staff are deeply concerned for the people and institutions affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Now that the consequences of Hurricane Harvey are upon us, new science and engineering questions are being raised. Through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), NSF encourages the submission of proposals that seek to address the challenges related to this storm. NSF also will support fundamental science and engineering research projects whose results may enable our country to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate future catastrophic events.
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.
Leibniz Association - Leibniz Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning (IRS) - IRS Fellowship Programme
Since 2013 the Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space (IRS) has supported international guest researchers with an institutional scholarship programme in order to finance their stay at the institute. Even in the age of digitalization, excellent research requires personal contact and joint working periods; the IRS Fellowship Programme shall enable this intensive academic collaboration. Research at the IRS is focused on the spatial aspects and contexts of social action. In doing so, spatial phenomena are explored in terms of both processual and historical dimensions using social-scientific methods. The research focuses on the preconditions, interactions, and consequences of spatial development, and how involved actors contribute to these developments by sharing insights and cooperating on processes of innovation.
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.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Geography and Spatial Sciences Program - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Awards (GSS-DDRI)
The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program supports basic research about the geographic distributions and interactions of human, physical, and biotic systems on Earth. Investigators are encouraged to propose plans for research about the nature, causes, and consequences of human activity and natural environmental processes across a range of scales. Projects about a broad range of topics may be appropriate for support if they offer promise of enhancing fundamental geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, methods, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
Tinker Foundation - Institutional Grants
The Foundation’s Institutional Grants program has as its goal the creation of effective policy changes to improve the lives of Latin Americans. Projects should have a strong public policy component, offer innovative solutions to problems facing these regions, and incorporate new mechanisms for addressing these programmatic areas. Activities may include, but are not restricted to, research projects, workshops and conferences related to the Foundation's areas of interest.
