24-4 Systems-Based Strategies to Improve the Nation's Ability to Plan and Respond to Water Scarcity and Drought Due to Climate Change (EPA)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking applications that use a systems approach to investigate how drought, climate change, and land use practices impact the quality and availability of surface and groundwater sources nationally. EPA is also interested in research that will help communities anticipate, plan and adapt to these new climate scenarios in the future. Many factors influence water demand and availability such as population growth, changes in land use practices, and high water demands from different sectors. Nationally, as weather patterns change (drought, flash floods, wildfires, etc), climate will increasingly play a major role in determining water quality and availability. This research will investigate the direct impact of climate change on water scarcity and drought, and how it affects the quality and availability of our water resources.

24-5 Fellowships to Assist Research and Artistic Creation (Guggenheim)

Often characterized as midcareer awards, Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. Fellowships are awarded through two annual competitions: one open to citizens and permanent residents of the United States and Canada, and the other open to citizens and permanent residents of Latin America and the Caribbean.

24-6 Grants in Architecture and Related Arts (Graham)

The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts makes project-based grants to individuals and organizations and produces public programs to foster the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society. In the Foundation's words: Architecture and related spatial practices engage a wide range of cultural, social, political, technological, environmental, and aesthetic issues. They are interested in projects that investigate the contemporary condition, expand historical perspectives, or explore the future of architecture and the designed environment. They support innovative, thought-provoking investigations in architecture; architectural history, theory, and criticism; design; engineering; landscape architecture; urban planning; urban studies; visual arts; and related fields of inquiry. Their interest also extends to work being done in the fine arts, humanities, and sciences that expands the boundaries of thinking about architecture and space. In an effort to bridge communities and different fields of knowledge, they support a wide range of practitioners (such as architects, scholars, critics, writers, artists, curators, and educators) and organizations (such as non-profit galleries, colleges and universities, publishers, and museums). (TGA 6/14)

24-7 Fellowships (ACLS)

The ACLS Fellowship program invites research applicants in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. ACLS does not fund creative work (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translation, or pedagogical projects. The ACLS Fellowships are intended as salary replacement to help scholars devote six to twelve continuous months to full-time research and writing. (TGA 6/14)

24-8 Partnerships for Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research-Technology Translation (PFI: AIR-TT) (NSF)

The NSF Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) program within the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships (IIP) is an umbrella for two complementary subprograms, Accelerating Innovation Research (AIR) and Building Innovation Capacity (BIC). The subject of this solicitation is PFI: AIR-Technology Translation (PFI: AIR-TT). The PFI: AIR-TT solicitation program serves as an early opportunity to move previously NSF-funded research results with promising commercial potential along the path toward commercialization. Projects are supported to demonstrate proof-of-concept, prototype, or scale-up while engaging faculty and students in entrepreneurial/innovative thinking. NSF 14-569

Deadline: Letters of Intent 9/2/2014, 3/13/2015; Proposals 10/2/2014, 4/14/2015





24-9 2014 ACVIM Foundation Seed Grants (ACVIM)

The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) Foundation is pleased to announce two new seed grant calls in 2014. These grants will focus in the areas of feline cardiac disease and feline chronic renal disease. Each will provide up to $10,000 to fund smaller research projects and/or allow for the generation of preliminary data needed for larger scale studies. These studies are to be completed within one year of initiation. (PND 6/20/2014)

24-10 Visiting Scholars Program (Sage)

The Russell Sage Foundation's Visiting Scholar Program provides a unique opportunity for select scholars in the social, economic and behavioral sciences to pursue their research and writing while in residence at the Foundation's New York headquarters. Research carried out by Visiting Scholars constitutes an important part of the Foundation's ongoing effort to analyze and understand the complex and shifting nature of social and economic life in the United States. While Visiting Scholars typically work on projects related to the Foundation's current programs, a few scholars whose research falls outside the Foundation's active programs are also invited each year.

24-12 Law and Social Science (NSF)

The Law and Social Sciences Program considers proposals that address social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules. The program is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-methodological. Successful proposals describe research that advances scientific theory and understanding of the connections between law or legal processes and human behavior. Social scientific studies of law often approach law as dynamic, made in multiple arenas, with the participation of multiple actors. Fields of study include many disciplines, and often address problems including though not limited to: Crime, Violence and Punishment; Economic Issues; Governance; Legal Decisionmaking; Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice; Litigation and the Legal Profession. NSF 12-507 (TGA 5/14)

Deadline: 8/1/2014, 1/15/2015

24-13 Geography and Spatial Sciences Program (GSS) (NSF)

The goals of the NSF Geography and Spatial Sciences (GSS) Program are: To promote scientific research in geography and the spatial sciences that advances theory and basic understanding and that addresses the challenges facing society; to promote the integration of geographers and spatial scientists in interdisciplinary research; to promote education and training of geographers and spatial scientists in order to enhance the capabilities of current and future generations of researchers; and to promote the development and use of scientific methods and tools for geographic research. The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program sponsors research on 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 on a variety of topics qualify for support if they offer promise of contributing to scholarship by enhancing geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, methods, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
