    22-1 Fulbright Scholar Program (Fulbright)

    Applications are available for the Fulbright Scholar Program. The Fulbright offers the opportunity to conduct research, teach, or study abroad. The Fulbright serves two primary purposes: (1) it enables Americans to learn first hand about other countries and cultures, and enables the people of other countries to learn more about the United States and its citizens and (2) it promotes academic and professional development. The program offers grants for college and university faculty, as well as for professionals and independent scholars.

    22-2 Minority Graduate Education (NSF)

    The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to establish a Minority Graduate Education (MGE) program that will significantly increase the number of African American, Hispanic, and Native American students receiving doctoral degrees in the sciences (physical and life science disciplines), mathematics, and engineering (SME). NSF is particularly interested in increasing the number of minorities who will enter the professoriate in these disciplines. Specific objectives of the MGE program are (1) to develop and implement innovative models for recruiting, mentoring, and retaining minority students in SME doctoral programs and (2) to develop effective strategies for identifying and supporting underrepresented minorities who want to pursue academic careers.

    22-11 Role of Limbic System and Brain Ontogeny in Drug Abuse (NIH)

    This initiative is designed to support basic research into the fundamental mechanisms of development of the midbrain and basal forebrain structures that mediate the euphoric properties of drugs as well as understanding how drugs of abuse affect the cellular and molecular mechanism underlying nervous system development. In the past, vertebrate model systems (such as chick, frog, mouse, and zebrafish) and invertebrate systems (such as Drosophila and C. Elegans) have provided insights into mechanisms of development and are also likely to provide new information about the formation and specification of the limbic system. Approaches using these or other model systems both in vitro and in vivo are applicable to this program announcement. PA-98-032 (NIHG 02/25/98)
