This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grants applications from applicant organizations that propose exploratory research on research integrity. The purpose of using the R21 exploratory/developmental mechanism is to foster research in areas of study having limited published data to identify clear evidence of problem areas that would benefit from further investigation. Applications must address at least one of the following areas of particular interest to the ORI and NIH: the clarification of community norms and standards, the effectiveness of self-regulation, the societal, organizational, group, or individual factors that affect integrity in research, both positively and negatively, or the impacts of non-adherence to accepted codes of conduct. The proposed project must challenge existing paradigms, be developed around an innovative hypothesis or address critical barriers to progress in understanding the multiple factors that underlie deviation from research integrity. Proposals must have clear relevance to biomedical, behavioral health sciences, or health services research. RFA-RR-07-003 (GG 9/28/07)
The Council for International Exchange of Scholars is currently accepting applications for the Fulbright Scholar Program German Studies Seminar. The Seminar in 2008 is a unique opportunity for American scholars to spend two weeks in Germany discussing a topic of vital importance in today's world: the impact of science on society. The seminar topic for the 2008-2009 grant year is "Science and Society: The Impact of Science on Policy Formation". The program will begin in Berlin and include visits to other cities in Germany, and will focus on the formation of policies in current issues at the core of modern society such as climate change, food technology, gene technology, stem cell research and the broad scope of education.
The Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) invites applications for its annual short-term fellowship program, which supports bibliographical inquiry as well as research in the history of the book trades and in publishing history. Eligible topics may concentrate on books and documents in any field, but should focus on the book or manuscript (the physical object) as historical evidence. Such topics may include establishing a text or studying the history of book production, publication, distribution, collecting, or reading.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in the United States and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) of the United Kingdom acting through the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) in the United Kingdom are working together to offer support for digitization projects in the humanities. These grants provide funding for one year of development in any of the following areas: new digitization projects and pilot projects, the addition of important materials to existing digitization projects, or the development of infrastructure (either technical middleware, tools, or knowledge-sharing) to support U.S.-England digitization work. Each application must be sponsored by both an eligible U.S. and English institution, and there must be a project director for each institution. The partners will collaborate to write a single application package, which the U.S. partner will submit to the NEH (via Grants.gov) and the English partner will submit to JISC (via e-mail). Applications should explain the need for the U.S.-England partnerships and provide workable solutions to some of the issues of managing and developing transatlantic collections. 20071129-PX (GG 9/14/07)
Through a bequest from Witter Bynner in 1972, The Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry perpetuates the art of poetry. The foundation promotes poetry in American culture and encourages grant proposals that expand awareness of the positive effects of poetry on society.
The American Council on Education (ACE) Fellows Program is a higher education leadership development program that prepares senior leaders (e.g., vice presidents, deans, department chairs, faculty, and other emerging leaders) to serve American colleges and universities. ACE Fellows spend an extended period of time on another campus, working directly with presidents. The ACE Fellows Program enables participants to immerse themselves in the culture, policies, and decision-making processes of another institution. This program condenses years of on-the-job experience and skills development into a single year. Internal coordination is required. Any ACE member institution may nominate up to two candidates annually.
The Association for Institutional Research (AIR) is accepting applications for a new Postdoctoral Fellow Program, a project funded by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Postdoctoral Fellow projects will be responsible for undertaking analysis that results in improvements to the quality, comparability, and usefulness of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).
