Funding Opportunities

 

Title: Mechanisms of Behavior Change in the Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders (R01) (PAR-14-051)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 02/24/2015

Amount: $498,500/5 yrs. (direct costs)

 

Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages grant applications from institutions or organizations that propose to investigate the underlying mechanisms that facilitate behavior change within our current empirically-supported behavioral treatments for alcohol use disorders. A further goal of this FOA is to enhance translational research efforts by identifying potential neurobiological or cognitive processes that may act as potential mechanisms of therapeutic change or mediate the direct link between specific “active ingredients” and alcohol use treatment outcomes.  The R01 funding mechanism supports a discrete, specified, circumscribed project to be performed by the named investigator(s) in an area representing his or her specific interest and competencies.

 

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by February 24. Submit initial Letter of Intent directly to the sponsor by February 17.

Title: Mechanisms of Behavior Change in the Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders (R03) (PAR-14-052)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 02/24/2015

Amount: $100,000/2 yrs. (direct costs)

 

Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages grant applications from institutions or organizations that propose to investigate the underlying mechanisms that facilitate behavior change within our current empirically-supported behavioral treatments for alcohol use disorders.

The R03 grant funding mechanism provides research support specifically limited in time and amount for studies in categorical program areas. Small grants provide flexibility for initiating studies that are generally for preliminary short-term projects and are non-renewable.

Title: Integrative Paleoanthropology Grants (IPG) (PD 15-1392)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 03/12/2015

Amount: $1,000,000/5 yrs.

 

Description: The Biological Anthropology and Archaeology Programs plan to make a single award for a maximum total cost of $1,000,000 to support a multi-year project of up to five years in duration. The goal of the competition is to further innovative, integrative research to elucidate hominin biological and behavioral evolution. The particular focus is on long term processes within hominin evolution and how they relate to major questions of paleoanthropological significance. While the intellectual scope of the competition is thus constrained, the potential methodologies and disciplines are not. It is understood, for example, that fields such as (but not limited to) cognitive science, genetics, and spatial or mathematical modeling may be directly relevant to such an endeavor. The competition is intended to stimulate research that is integrative and crosses intellectual/disciplinary boundaries in novel ways, above and beyond current practice. As general examples, an integrative and interdisciplinary project might: 1) encompass broader perspectives, not previously synthesized, on regional and large-scale comparative issues, or 2) result in the development and application of an innovative method informed by multiple disciplines.

 

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by March 12.
