The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs will award up to three Cooperative Agreements to support programs for short residency and training programs in the United States for emerging and mid-career visual artists, film artists, and architecture and urban design professional from selected countries. Each Cooperative Agreement may support artists from one or more of the three categories. Grantees will develop 30-60 day programs in the United States for the nominated participants, individually or in small groups. Each program should be built around a residency experience, which may be supplemented by other program elements designed to enhance and expand upon the activities of the residency. An applicant may submit no more that two proposals under this competition; only one proposal may be submitted for each category of artists included in this RFGP ECA/PE/C/CU-07-60 (FR 4/19/07)
This grant program--Humanities Collections and Resources--combines support for activities that were funded previously through two separate grant categories-- Preserving and Creating Access to Humanities Collections and Reference Materials. Digital technology now makes possible unified access to geographically dispersed collections and the integration of reference materials with related sources and tools. The possibilities presented by advances in technology require a new grant category that encompasses the range of activities funded through the previous programs and encourages digital projects that codify, unite, integrate, or aggregate humanities collections and resources. Humanities Collections and Resources grants support projects that preserve and create intellectual access to such collections as books, journals, newspapers, manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, and objects of material culture.
This is a special BAA in support of the AFOSR's Discovery Challenge Thrusts (DCTs). Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) invites proposals for research in the areas of: Integrated Multi-modal Sensing, Processing, and Exploitation; Robust Decision Making; Turbulence Control and Implications; Space Situational Awareness; Complex Networked Systems; Reconfigurable Cellular Electronic Systems; and Thermal Transport Phenomena and Scaling Laws. This research effort will consist of interdisciplinary teams of researchers who will address cutting-edge efforts on basic scientific problems. AFOSR-BAA-2007-08 (FBO 4/17/07)
In order to ensure the timely handling of proposals and fairness in comparing competing requests for funding, the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Division of Chemistry (Division) has changed its proposal submission window for unsolicited proposals from the current single long window (second Monday in July until the second Friday in January) to two shorter windows; one between July 1 and July 31 and another between November 1 and November 30. The window changes are effective immediately. For purposes of NSF, the end date of each submission window converts to, and follows the same policies as, a deadline date. NSF 07-139 (Posted 3/7/07)
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite investigators to apply for access to government-funded contract resources needed for the early and late stage preclinical development of small molecule, oligonucleotide, and peptide therapeutic agents. There are no funds associated with a Resource Access award. Successful applicants receive access to NIH contract resources. PAR-07-358 (NIHG 4/20/07)
Active Living Research is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that stimulates and supports research to identify environmental factors and policies that influence physical activity. The purpose of this call for proposals is to increase our understanding of how environments and policies affect children's physical activity in community and schools 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 goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite research applications investigating basic and clinical aspects of long-term weight maintenance. Applications investigating mechanisms underlying weight stability and/or weight regain after intentional weight loss, as well as clinical studies investigating the role of behavioral, nutritional, exercise, or other interventions in enhancing long-term weight maintenance will be supported. Collaborations between basic and clinical researchers are particularly encouraged. PA-07-053 (NIHG 11/24/06)
17-11 Prioritizing Molecular Targets for Cancer Prevention with Nutritional Combinations (R01) (NIH)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), solicits innovative research project (R01) grant applications to enhance mechanistic understanding of the dynamic interrelationship between bioactive food components and/or food combinations and cancer prevention. Projects proposed in response to this FOA must focus on either multiple dietary bioactive components, intact foods, and/or multiple foods utilizing physiologically relevant concentrations of the bioactive agents. The objective is to investigate the impact of dietary components on complex cellular and molecular networks to better understand the basis for the multifaceted interactions of food components in cancer prevention.

Applications to conduct research in India may be made in the following categories: Junior Research Fellowships--available to doctoral candidates at U.S. universities in all fields of study. Senior Research Fellowships--available to scholars who hold the Ph.D. or its equivalent. Senior Fellowships are designed to enable scholars in all disciplines who specialize in South Asia to pursue further research in India. Senior Scholarly/Professional Development Fellowships--available to established scholars who have not previously specialized in Indian studies and to established professionals who have not previously worked or studied in India. Senior Performing and Creative Arts Fellowships--available to accomplished practitioners of the performing arts of India and creative artists who demonstrate that study in India would enhance their skills, develop their capabilities to teach or perform in the U.S., enhance American involvement with India's artistic traditions, and strengthen their links with peers in India.
17-13 Prevention of Trauma Related Adjustment and Mental Disorders in High-Risk Occupations (R01) (NIH)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), solicits research grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to further the state of science regarding selective prevention approaches prior to trauma exposure for members of high-risk occupations, i.e., civilian employees and military personnel who regularly encounter traumatic situations. From a scientific perspective, occupations that involve exposure to trauma at higher than average frequency present unique opportunities for testing the effectiveness of preventive interventions designed to minimize posttraumatic adjustment disorders. From a public health and national security perspective, attending to the mental and behavioral health of individuals and groups who respond to emergencies, provide disaster relief, defend national interests, participate in peacekeeping missions, and maintain a civil society can be viewed as strengthening our national infrastructure. This FOA runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, MH-08-011 that solicits applications under the R34 grant mechanism. RFA-MH-08-010 (NIHG 4/13/07)
17-14 The Influence of Religiosity and Spirituality on Health and Risk Behaviors in Children and Adolescents (R01) (NIH)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) calls for research studies that examine the mechanisms, mediators, and moderators by which religious and spiritual beliefs develop and are transmitted across generations, and whether and how these beliefs influence early sexual behaviors and alcohol or other drug use that many facilitate the transmission of HIV in children and adolescents. The focus of this FOA is on the positive and negative effects of religiosity and spirituality (henceforth referred to solely as "religiosity") on health risk behaviors in children and adolescents.
