2-6 Agriculture and Food Research Initiative: Food Security Challenge Area (USDA)

The long-term goal of the AFRI Food Security Challenge Area is to sustainably increase agricultural productivity and the availability and accessibility of safe and nutritious food. In FY 2014, priority will be given to projects that will improve prevention, early detection, rapid diagnosis, containment, mitigation, and recovery from new, foreign or emerging pests and diseases of crops or livestock that have the potential to cause major impacts on food security. The purpose of this work should be the discovery of principles of infectious disease transmission and the spread of pests that can be integrated into disease and pest management systems during the course of the award period and beyond. This includes, for example, the spread of pathogens, the influence of environmental factors such as climate; the population dynamics and genetics of reservoir species or hosts; or the cultural, social, behavioral, and economic dimensions of disease and pest transmission. Successful proposals will have the potential to significantly improve food security, will identify achievable outcomes and deliverables using a logic model, and will demonstrate a close working relationship with stakeholder groups.

2-8 Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teachers (NEH)

The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports a series of one-week residence-based workshops for a national audience of K-12 educators. NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops use historic sites to address central themes and issues in American history, government, literature, art, music, and related subjects in the humanities. Each workshop is offered twice during the summer. Workshops accommodate thirty-six school teachers (NEH Summer Scholars) at each one-week session. The goals of the workshops are to increase knowledge and appreciation of subjects, ideas, and places significant to American history and culture through humanities reading and site study; build communities of inquiry and provide models of civility and of excellent scholarship and teaching; provide teachers with expertise in the use and interpretation of historical sites and of material and archival resources; and foster interaction between K-12 educators and scholarly experts.

2-12 Evaluating Promising Strategies to Build the Evidence Base for Sexual Violence Prevention (CDC)

The purpose of this announcement is to support research to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of primary prevention strategies for the perpetration of sexual violence. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control's research priorities for sexual violence prevention include evaluating the efficacy and effectiveness of programs, strategies, and policies across all levels of the social ecology to prevent and interrupt the development of sexual violence perpetration. In addition, the Center's research priorities highlight the need to identify effective programs, strategies, and policies that might prevent multiple types of violence concurrently, including sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and other forms of violence, and evaluating the economic efficiency of such programs, strategies and policies. Research funded under this announcement will address these priorities by rigorously evaluating programs, strategies, or policies for their impact on rates of sexual violence perpetration in one of two areas: a) strategies that engage boys and men, or b) structural, environmental, and/or policy interventions.
