Funding Opportunities

 

Title: Dialogues on the Experience of War (CFDA 45.163)

Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

Deadline: 08/24/2015

Amount: $100,000

 

Description: As a part of its current initiative, Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War, the NEH offers a new grant opportunity: the Dialogues on the Experience of War program. The program supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others to think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service. The humanities sources can be drawn from history, philosophy, literature, and film—and they may and should be supplemented by testimonials from those who have served. The discussions are intended to promote serious exploration of important questions about the nature of duty, heroism, suffering, loyalty, and patriotism.

 

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in the COLA Office of Research and return Proposal Review Form by August 24.

Title: The Health of Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations (R01) (PA-15-261)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 09/14/2015

Amount: Unspecified

 

Description: The NIH is committed to supporting research that will increase scientific understanding of the health status of diverse population groups and thereby improve the effectiveness of health interventions and services for individuals within those groups. Priority is placed on understudied populations with distinctive health risk profiles. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) focuses on sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex populations. Basic, social, behavioral, clinical, and services research relevant to the missions of the sponsoring Institutes and Centers may be proposed. 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 September 14.

Title: NIH Transformative Research Awards (R01) (RFA-RM-15-005)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 09/18/2015

Amount: Unspecified

 

Description: The NIH Transformative Research Awards complement NIH’s traditional, investigator-initiated grant programs by supporting individual scientists or groups of scientists proposing groundbreaking, exceptionally innovative, original and/or unconventional research with the potential to create new scientific paradigms, establish entirely new and improved clinical approaches, or develop transformative technologies. Little or no preliminary data are expected. Projects must clearly demonstrate the potential to produce a major impact in a broad area of biomedical or behavioral research. 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 September 18.

Deadline: 10/08/2015

Amount: $100,000-$250,000/yr., 3-5 yrs. (direct costs)
