National Institutes of Health (NIH) - Research on the Health of Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Populations (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) calls for research on the health of transgender and gender nonconforming people. Transgender and gender nonconforming people encompass individuals whose gender identity differs from the sex on their original birth certificate, including individuals who are making or who have made a transition from being identified as one gender to the other, as well as individuals who are questioning their gender identity, who identify with more than one gender, or whose gender expression varies significantly from what is traditionally associated with or typical for that sex. While there are a number of terms for this group of individuals, for the sake of consistency this document will refer to the group as “transgender and gender nonconforming people.”
Sociological Initiatives Foundation (SFI) - Action Research Projects
The Sociological Initiatives Foundation supports social change by linking research to social action. It funds research projects that investigate laws, policies, institutions, regulations, and normative practices that may limit equality in the United States. It gives priority to projects that seek to address racism, xenophobia, classism, gender bias, exploitation, or the violation of human rights and freedoms. It also supports research that furthers language learning and behavior and its intersection with social and policy questions.
Spencer Foundation - Conference Grants
The Spencer Foundation’s Conference Grant program is designed to provide support to scholars for small research conferences and focused symposia. The conference grant program intends to bring together researchers whose substantive knowledge, theoretical insight, and methodological expertise can be assembled in ways that build upon and advance best practices in education research. Through this grant program, the Foundation rotates the area of focus periodically to generate fresh ideas and perspectives on pressing educational challenges. We currently seek proposals from scholars whose interests are related to creating and sustaining equitable educational spaces.
Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum - Research Support Grants
The Roosevelt Institute supports a program of small grants-in-aid in support of research on the "Roosevelt years" or clearly related subjects. The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library maintains over 17 million pages of documents, 150,000 audiovisual items, and 50,000 books. Among these materials are the personal papers of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, as well as those of various individuals and organizations associated with the Roosevelts.
National Academy of Education (NAE) - Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship
The National Academy of Education/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports early career scholars working in critical areas of education research. This non-residential postdoctoral fellowship funds proposals that make significant scholarly contributions to the field of education. The program also develops the careers of its recipients through professional development activities involving National Academy of Education members.

Laura and John Arnold Foundation - Low-Cost Randomized Controlled Trials to Drive Effective Social Spending Grant
Low-cost randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are a powerful new tool for building scientific evidence about "what works" in social spending. Well-conducted RCTs are widely regarded as the most credible method of evaluating whether a social program is effective, but are often assumed to be inherently too expensive and burdensome for practical use in most areas. Recently, however, researchers have shown that, in many instances, high-quality RCTs can be conducted at low cost and minimal burden, addressing a key obstacle to their widespread use.
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.
L.S.B. Leakey Foundation - General Research Grants
The Leakey Foundation exclusively funds research related specifically to human origins. Priority of funding is commonly given to exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation. The Leakey Foundation promotes a multidisciplinary approach to exploring human origins. The Foundation gives special encouragement to early career scientists asking new questions and seeking innovative ways to answer these questions about human evolution. Like venture capitalists, the Foundation understands that the greatest rewards come from taking the greatest risks.
