While the Kanzanjian Foundation maintains a vital interest in overall efforts to increase economic literacy, the Board of Trustees will give special attention to proposals and projects with national impact that address the following issues: 1) Promoting Economic Literacy; 2) The difficulty of learning economics as well as finding and funding the best ways to teach the subject; 3) Testing the impact of economic education; 4) The large number of students at risk for leaving school, and hence never participating in the nation's economic system.
The U.S. Department of Education intends to enter into 5-year contracts with qualified entities to establish a networked system of ten Regional Educational Laboratories to carry out applied research, development, dissemination, and technical assistance activities to serve the needs for each region of the United States. ED intends to make separate award for each of the 10 laboratory regions. ED-05-R-0006 (FBO 7/1/05)
The Foundation has its primary mission to investigate ways in which education can be improved, around the world. The Foundation's Major Research Grants Program supports research projects requiring more than $40,000. Research projects vary widely, ranging from medium-sized studies that can be completed within a year by an individual researcher to more extensive collaborative studies that last several years. Beginning in March 2005, the Major Grants program will accept preliminary proposals that fit within one or more of four areas of inquiry: a) The Relation between Education and Social Opportunity; b) Organizational learning in Schools, School Systems, and Higher Education Institutions; c) Teaching, Learning, and Instructional Resources; and d) Purposes and Values of Education.
27-9 Nonlinear Responses to Global Change in Linked Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecosystems and Effects of Multiple Factors on Terrestrial Ecosystems (EPA)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science, are seeking applications for research on: 1) when and how the climate change stressors produce nonlinear ecological responses in linked aquatic and terrestrial systems and 2) when and how multiple global change factors might alter the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems. Proposals must address linear ecological responses caused by climate change and variability on the scale of decades or longer. Linked ecosystems are of particular interest to EPA and include: freshwater wetlands, riparian areas, watersheds, and near-coastal environments such as estuaries. Unmanaged and managed terrestrial systems such as forests, grasslands, woodlands, deserts, and field crops are of interest to DOE. EPA-G2005-STAR-L1
The Terry C. Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research at K-State strives to support and enhance cancer-related research and training at K-State. K-State scientists performing cancer-related research, even if only potentially relevant to cancer biology, are invited to become affiliated scientists, a status that is simple to acquire, and apply for various cancer center awards. Innovative Research Awards provide funds for "seed money" projects to gather preliminary data crucial for future major grant proposals. Faculty Equipment Awards provide funds for new equipment not covered by other funding but crucial for modernizing the laboratory. Travel Awards are provided in modest amounts to affiliates who must travel to learn new scientific techniques or visit with collaborators at other institutions. All awards are competitive, and the number of affiliates to benefit from each award is also considered.
The K-State Terry C. Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research invites applications for a program that will provide up to three years of salary for a new Assistant Professor performing research in the area of cancer biology. The relevant department head/dean would provide laboratory space and start-up expenses, as well as salary throughout the remainder of the tenure-earning period. Applications will be judged competitively.
The Society's Career Development Program provides awards intended to meet the specific needs of investigators at different states in their research careers. The Career Development Program supports fundamental research in genetics, molecular and cell biology, molecular pharmacology, molecular virology and immunology. The program also encompasses translational research directly relevant to the improved treatment or diagnosis of leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and where applicable, to prevention.
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund's (BWF) Career Awards in the Biomedical Sciences (CABS) are intended to foster the development and productivity of early-career biomedical researchers and help them make the critical transition to becoming independent investigators. The CABS grant is made to an investigator's institution on behalf of the individual investigator or BWF CABS awardee. A U.S. or Canadian institution-including its medical school, graduate schools, and all affiliated hospitals and research institutes-may nominate up to six candidates. Institutions that nominate at least one candidate in the reproductive sciences may nominate an additional candidate. BWF encourages diversity within the scientific community. Therefore, institutions that nominate at least one candidate from an underrepresented minority group--African-American, Hispanic or Native American--may nominate an additional candidate.
The Fogarty International Research Collaboration - Basic Biomedical Sciences Research Award (FIRCA-BB) facilitates collaborative basic biomedical research between scientists supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and investigators in developing countries. Eligible Principal Investigators must either: a) have current, eligible NIH-funded research and collaborate with a colleague from a laboratory or research site in an eligible developing country; or b) currently be or formerly have been a Foreign Collaborator on a FIRCA awarded within the past seven years. Only the FIRCA application may be submitted by the same investigator or involve the same collaborator per review cycle. PAR-05-072 (NIHG 3/18/05)

Priority shall be given to victims of sexual assault, domestic abuse and child abuse.
27-16 Undergraduate and Graduate Student Awards and Post-Doctoral for Cancer-Relevant Research, Training, and Travel (KSU)
The Terry C. Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research at K-State strives to support and enhance cancer-related education and training at K-State, and to promote cancer research and related professions as potential careers. Undergraduate students wishing to participate in cancer-related laboratory research are encouraged to apply along with a cancer center-affiliated faculty scientist for a Cancer Research Award. Student winners work in their faculty mentors' laboratories and receive $1,000 awards in the spring. Mentors also receive $1,000 per student to support research expenses. Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows of affiliated scientists may apply for Travel Awards to support travel to professional meetings or workshops that are relevant to basic cancer research and will positively impact the applicant's training and the lab in which the applicant works. Faculty mentors submit applications on behalf of students/fellows.
