The purpose of the MOSAIC Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00) program is to support a cohort of early career, independent investigators from diverse backgrounds conducting research in NIH mission areas. The long-term goal of this program is to enhance diversity in the biomedical research workforce.
In this Request for Applications (RFA), IES invites applications for Research Grants Focused on Systematic Replication (Systematic Replication). Under this competition, IES will support systematic replication studies1 of IES-identified interventions that have produced beneficial effects on education outcomes in one or more prior IES-funded impact studies. Proposed replication studies will systematically vary at least one aspect of the prior impact study.
Through the program, a single grant of $15,000 will be awarded in support of scientific, scholarly, or applied research and/or educational activities focused on how personality, culture, and environment influence work behavior and mental and physical health.
Rice University’s InterDisciplinary Excellence Awards (IDEA) promote the development of new research or academic partnerships that extend across multiple schools to engage faculty in new and creative scholarship. A minimum of three faculty extending across at least two schools is required.
These awards are for high-risk/high-reward proposals. It is expected that these awards will lead to proposals that generate new centers or multi-PI programming.
Awards are funded up to a maximum of $75,000 and may extend for up to two years ($75,000 total).
Communities in the United States (US) and around the world are entering a new era of transformation in which residents and their surrounding environments are increasingly connected through rapidly-changing intelligent technologies. This transformation offers great promise for improved wellbeing and prosperity but poses significant challenges at the complex intersection of technology and society.
Graduate Student Conference Travel Grants (GSCT) of up to $600 are available to graduate students in the Social Sciences at Rice who are presenting a paper or a poster at a conference or meeting. Travel grants may be used in defraying conference or meeting travel expenses such as domestic or foreign airfare, lodging, transportation, mileage, and registration fees.
Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DRIG) are awarded each SSRI funding cycle (July 1 - June 30) to support or partially support dissertation research projects proposed by graduate students in the School of Social Sciences who have completed their coursework and who have advanced to candidacy or will advance to candidacy by the time the DRIG awards are made. All subject areas and methodologies within the School will be considered equally. The proposals must be written with a multi-disciplinary audience in mind, as they will be evaluated by the School’s Faculty Advisory Committ
The Social Sciences Research Institute provides Pre-Dissertation Research (PDR) grants in each SSRI funding cycle (July 1st - June 30th) to support or partially support expenses related to preliminary dissertation research for graduate students in the School of Social Sciences (excluding Anthropology) at Rice. All subject areas and methodologies within the School will be considered equally.
Seed Money grants for up to $10,000 are available to tenure-track faculty (position at the rank of assistant professor) for the development of larger projects leading to research grant proposals to outside funding agencies.
The goal of the Collaborative Research Grant is to encourage collaboration of Rice Social Sciences faculty across disciplines. Submissions must involve tenured and/or tenure track faculty from at least two disciplines to be considered. The tenured faculty member (at the rank of Professor or Associate Professor) must be listed as the Principal Investigator (PI), and must be from a Social Sciences department; the other faculty (2 co-investigator limit) can be from a different Social Sciences department or departments, another school on the Rice campus, or another discipline at a diffe
