Target is accepting applications from organizations in communities where the company does business for its Local Store Grants program. Grant applications are accepted from nonprofit programs that impact any of the following areas: arts; early childhood reading; and family violence prevention. Arts grants are awarded to programs that bring the arts to schools or make it affordable for families to participate in cultural experiences. Early childhood reading grants support programs that promote a love of reading and encourage children, from birth through age nine, to read together with their families. Family violence prevention grants support programs that strengthen families by preventing or reducing the cycle of family violence.
Scientific research and operational support of that research are the principal activities supported by the United States Government in Antarctica. The goals are to expand fundamental knowledge of the region, to foster research on global and regional problems of current scientific importance, and to use Antarctica as a platform from which to support research. For projects involving fieldwork, the U.S. Antarctic Program supports only that research that can be done exclusively in Antarctica or that can be done best from Antarctica. The program also supports analytical research performed at home organizations. NSF 07-549 (Posted 3/7/07)
Each year The Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lingbergh Foundation provides grants of up to $10,580 (a symbolic amount representing the cost of the "Spirit of St. Louis") to men and women whose individual initiative and work in a wide spectrum of disciplines furthers the Lindberghs' vision of a balance between the advance of technology and the preservation of the natural/human environment. Lindbergh Grants are made in the following categories: agriculture; aviation/aerospace; conservation of natural resources--including animals, plants, water, and general conservation (land, air, energy, etc.); education--including humanities/ education, the arts, and the intercultural communication; exploration; health--including biomedical research, health and population sciences, and adaptive technology; and waste minimization and management.
The National Geographic Society awards grants for scientific field research and exploration through its Committee for Research and Exploration.

Applications are generally limited to the following disciplines: anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, biology, botany, geography, geology, oceanography, paleontology, and zoology.
13-5 Computational Toxicology Centers: Development of Predictive Environmental and Biomedical Computer-Based Simulations and Models (EPA)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing to develop in silico modeling applications of biological systems in areas as diverse as receptor- ligand interactions in cell signaling, simulated organ dysfunction (e.g., heart, liver, kidney), and systemic response to environmental toxicants and pollutants. The STAR program is issuing this request for applications for research that will seek to apply high-performance computing technologies and theoretical mathematical techniques to facilitate the development of a predictive capacity for estimating outcomes or risk associated with particular toxicity processes as a result of environmental exposure to pollutants and toxicants. EPA-G2007-STAR-D1
The Economic Research Service (ERS) is accepting economic research proposals in two broad research areas of importance to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's invasive species policies and programs. The ERS program focuses on national decision making related to invasive species of agricultural significance or ones that are affecting or are affected by USDA programs. The term "invasive species" is applied broadly to include any vertebrate, invertebrate, weed, fungus, plant disease, animal or livestock disease, or other organism that: is innovative, alien or exotic to the ecosystem where it exists or potentially could be introduced including agricultural, range, and forest ecosystems; and when introduced causes, or is likely to cause, economic or environmental harm. Proposals should focus on applied economic research that has direct implications for USDA policies and programs for protection from, control/management of, regulation concerning, or trade policy relating to invasive species.

The March of Dimes Research Program invites all qualified scientists with faculty appointments (or the equivalent) at universities, hospitals, and research institutions to submit applications for research grants directed at the prevention of birth defects. Research subjects appropriate for support by the March of Dimes include basic biological processes governing development, genetics, clinical studies, studies of reproductive health, environmental toxicology, and social and behavioral studies.
Active Living Research is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that works to stimulate and support research on environmental factors and policies that influence physical activity. The purpose of the current call for proposals is to increase the understanding of how environments and policies affect children's physical activity in community and school settings. Grants will be awarded for two research topics: 1) examination of how children's and parents' perceptions of community and recreation environments are related to objective attributes of the environments and how those perceptions affect their desire to use the environments for physical activity; 2) evaluation of policy interventions to promote physical activity in schools.
The overall goal of the FY07 OCRP is to promote research focused on eradicating ovarian cancer. The OCRP Concept award supports new ideas and the exploration of innovative concepts or theories in ovarian cancer. The proposed research should provide a catalyst to challenge or expand current thinking and approaches in ovarian cancer research. Presentation of preliminary data is not consistent with the intent of this mechanism. These awards are designed for preliminary investigations; therefore, projects involving human subjects or human biological substances will not be supported unless they are exempt under 32 CFR 219.101(b)(4).
The overall vision of the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program is to eradicate breast cancer. To accomplish this vision, the BCRP fosters new directions, addresses neglected issues, and brings new investigators into the field of breast cancer research. Available programs are: 1) Era of Hope Scholar Awards which support individuals who have high potential for innovation in breast cancer research early in their careers; 2) Era of Hope Post Doctoral Awards which support exceptionally talented recent doctoral graduates who possess both the ambition and the ability to pursue highly innovative breast cancer research during their postdoctoral training; 3) Idea Awards which support highly innovative, high-risk/high-reward research that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will accelerate the eradication of breast cancer; 4) Impact Awards (New) which support a select number of unique projects or ideas that do not fit existing BCRP award mechanisms yet possess strong potential to have an unprecedented impact on the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and/or treatment of breast cancer or greatly enhance the quality of life for breast cancer patients; 5) Innovator Awards which support visionary individuals who have a history of creativity, innovative work, and leadership in any field including, but not limited to, breast cancer; 6) Multi-disciplinary Postdoctoral Awards which support talented doctoral or medical degree graduates in obtaining significant training and experience in at least two discrete disciplines so that they may more effectively pursue an independent career at the forefront of breast cancer research. Full proposals are invited based on required Preapplications or Nominations. Check each program description for application procedures and deadlines.
