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) - Geography and Spatial Sciences Program
The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program (GSS) 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.
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.
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey - Center for Cultural Analysis (CCA) - Postdoctoral Associate Fellowship
For 2018-19, the Center for Cultural Analysis will sponsor five fellowships for Rutgers faculty, five fellowships for Rutgers graduate students, and two Postdoctoral Associate positions for external scholars. The CCA invites applications for fellows affiliated with the 2018–19 Classification seminar. We welcome proposals that investigate classification in intellectual, cultural, and social life from scholars in any field of the humanities and social sciences. Possible areas of inquiry include but are not limited to: cultural taste and social stratification; genre and genre systems; the meaning of media formats; the art/non-art opposition; libraries, universities, and other institutional organizers of culture; "folk" and "expert" taxonomies; the collection of data and control of populations by the state; classification struggle and the problem of the exception.

These grants are awarded to support research into any area of the material past. The Society’s investments, including a number of bequests, are used to support a wide range of research covering the Fellowships’ interests.
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.
