Spencer Foundation - Small Research Grants
The Small Research Grants program is intended to support education research projects with budgets of $50,000 or less. In keeping with the Spencer Foundation’s mission, this program aims to fund academic work that will contribute to the improvement of education, broadly conceived. Historically, the work we have funded through these grants has spanned, a range of topics and disciplines, including education, psychology, sociology, economics, history, and anthropology, and they employ a wide range of research methods.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Dear Colleague Letter: NSF Accepting Proposals Related to Hurricane Irma
Through this Dear Colleague Letter, NSF encourages the submission of proposals that seek to address the challenges related to Hurricane Irma. 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. Research proposals relating to a better fundamental understanding of the impacts of the storm (both physical, biological and societal), human aspects of natural disasters (including first responders and the general public), emergency response methods, and approaches that promise to reduce future damage also are welcome.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Economics Program Grants
The program supports research designed to improve the understanding of the processes and institutions of the U.S. economy and of the world system of which it is a part. The program welcomes proposals for individual or multi-investigator research projects, conferences, workshops, symposia, experimental research, data collection and dissemination, computer equipment and other instrumentation, and research experience for undergraduates.
New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) - 2018 Special Projects Fund
The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) has a broad mission to improve the health of all New Yorkers, especially the most vulnerable. NYSHealth’s efforts are concentrated on specific priority and focus areas, but to ensure flexibility and responsiveness to other important health issues, the Special Projects Fund supports projects that are outside of those areas. Projects pertaining to the following priority and focus areas will be ineligiblefor funding through the Special Projects Fund: Building Healthy Communities, Empowering Health Care Consumers, or Veterans’ Health.
Society in Science - Branco Weiss Fellowship
The Branco Weiss Fellowship provides a platform for exceptionally qualified researchers, demonstrating a willingness to engage in a dialogue on relevant social, cultural, political or economic issues across the frontiers of their particular discipline. Ideally, fellows pursue unconventional projects in new areas of science, engineering and social sciences. The fellowship was founded in 2002 by the late Swiss entrepreneur Dr. Branco Weiss. It belongs to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).
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.
Library Company of Philadelphia (LCP) - Short-Term Fellowships
The Library Company of Philadelphia and The Historical Society of Pennsylvania will jointly award approximately twenty-five one-month fellowships for research in residence in either or both collections during the academic year 2018-2019. These two independent research libraries, adjacent to each other in Center City Philadelphia, have complementary collections capable of supporting research in a variety of fields and disciplines relating to the history of America and the Atlantic world from the 17th through the 19th centuries, as well as Mid-Atlantic regional history to the present.
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.
Stanford University - Hoover Institution - Research Fellowships
The Hoover Institution Library & Archives offers competitive fellowships to support research based in their collections. All recipients will be expected to spend a minimum of ten days in the Library & Archives.
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.
