This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits Research Project Grant (R03) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to study the impact of human-animal interaction (HAI) on children's health and development and to test the efficacy of therapeutic uses of HAI with children. The purpose of this FOA is to build an empirical research base on how children perceive, relate to and think about animals; how pets in the home impact children's social and emotional development and health (e.g., allergies, the immune system, asthma, mitigation of obesity); and whether and under what conditions therapeutics uses of animals are safe and effective.

The School for Advanced Research (SAR) awards approximately six Resident Scholar Fellowships each year to scholars who have completed their research and analysis and who need time to think and write about topics important to the understanding of humankind. Resident scholars may approach their research from anthropology or from related fields such as history, sociology, art, and philosophy. Both humanistically and scientifically oriented scholars are encouraged to apply.
In order to promote Japanese Studies overseas, this program provides support to outstanding scholars in the field by providing the opportunity to conduct research in Japan. Applicants must be American citizens, American citizens temporarily residing abroad, or permanent residents of the United States. In principle, Scholars and Researchers (both Long-Term and Short-Term) must hold a Ph.D. and have substantial experience in research, teaching and writing in the fields of the humanities or social sciences.
Getty Scholars grants provide a unique research experience. Recipients are in residence at the Getty Research Institute, where they pursue their own projects free from academic obligations, make use of Getty collections, join their colleagues in a weekly meeting devoted to an annual theme, and participate in the intellectual life of the Getty. These grants are for established scholars, artists, or writers who have attained distinction in their fields. Applications are welcome from researchers of all nationalities who are working in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.
The Folger Shakespeare Library offers research fellowships to encourage access to its exceptional collections and to encourage ongoing cross-disciplinary dialogue among scholars of the early modern period.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), will promote timely human otopathology research relevant to new discoveries in genetics, physiology and disease. Emphasis is on collaborative infrastructure for research on human ear disorders, where a combined approach can optimize expertise from a few small laboratories, improve the targeted procurement and shared use of particular temporal bone tissues, and coordinate training of new otopathologists and technicians. Explicit collaborations to link modern biology, imaging, and informatics technologies with patient history and pathology will provide a new approach to otopathology. Applicants may not submit more than one application in response to this FOA. RFA-DC-11-003 (NIHG 9/10/10)
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, invites proposal submissions for the design and implementation of five different Study of the United States Institutes to take place over the course of six weeks beginning in June 2011, pending the availability of funds. These Institutes should provide a multinational group of experienced educators with a deeper understanding of U.S. society, culture, values, and institutions. Four of these Institutes will be for groups of 18 foreign university level faculty, focusing on American Politics and Political Thought, Contemporary American Literature, Religious Pluralism in the United States, and U.S. Foreign Policy. The fifth Institute will be a general survey course on the study of the United States for a group of 30 foreign educators. Applicants may propose to submit one proposal to host only one Institute listed under this competition. ECA-A-E-USS-11-05-09 (GG 9/17/10)
