The Foundation for Child Development provides fellowship support through its Changing Faces of America's Children-- Young Scholars Program for investigators to conduct research that aims to identify and understand the challenges faced by immigrant families and their children in the United States. The goals of this competitive award program are to: 1) stimulate both basic and policy-relevant research about the early education, health, and well-being of children living in immigrant families from birth to age ten, particularly those who are living in low income families; and 2) to support young investigators from the behavioral and social sciences of an allied professional field (e.g., public policy, public health, education, social work, nursing, medicine) who are untenured but in tenure-track positions or who have received tenure in the last four years from a college or university in the United States.
The Biotechnology, Biochemical, and Biomass Engineering (BBBE) program deals with problems involved in economic processing and manufacturing of products of economic importance by effectively utilizing renewable resources of biological origin and bioinformatics originating from genomic and proteomic information. The BBBE program emphasizes basic engineering and biological research that advances the fundamental knowledge base that contributes to a better understanding of biomolecular processes (in vivo, in vitro, and/or ex vivo) and eventually to the development of generic enabling technology and practical application. Quantitative assessments of bioprocesses and their rates at the levels of gene regulation and expression, signal transduction pathways, posttranslational protein processing, enzymes in reaction systems, metabolic pathways, cells and tissues in cultivation, and biological systems including animal, plant, microbial and insect cells, etc. are considered vital to the successful research projects in the BBBE program.

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of Industry Studies Fellowships for 2008, to support the development of industry studies, a multidisciplinary field of research on industries that is grounded in direct observation. The Sloan Industry Studies Program, which includes twenty-six Sloan Industry Centers as well as affiliated faculty members working independently in many other university settings, encourages research cooperation between academics and industry in order to stimulate new lines of inquiry and broaden the impact of related scholarship. Modeled after the prestigious Sloan Research Fellowships for early-career scientists, Industry Studies Fellowships are intended to recognize and support junior faculty member in a wide range of academic disciplines. Awards are made to scholars who show the most outstanding promise of making important contributions to understanding the complex systems of companies, product and labor markets, institutions and their interactions that shape the multifaceted environment of modern industrial enterprises. Candidates for Sloan Industry Studies Fellowships are required to hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in economics, management, engineering, political science, sociology, or in a related or interdisciplinary field, and must be members of the regular faculty (i.e., tenure track) of a college or university in the United States of Canada. They may be no more than six years from completion of the most recent Ph.D. or equivalent as of the year of their nomination.
The National Humanities Center offers 40 residential fellowships for advanced study in the humanities during the academic year, September 2008 through May 2009. Young scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply, but they must have a record of publication, and recent Ph.D's should be aware that the Center does not supports the revision of a doctoral dissertation. In addition to scholars from all fields of the humanities, the Center accepts individuals from the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects.
