(In extenuating circumstances, grants of up to $75,000 can be considered.) These grants are intended to help faculty members develop adventurous research and scholarly projects that enhance the university and lead to larger endeavors, research breakthroughs, external funding opportunities, or unusually creative works.
CAREER: The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) plans to solicit applications for Secondary Analyses of Data on Early Care and Education grants. Analyzing existing data sets may provide researchers an efficient and cost-effective method for answering critical research questions.
The Behavioral Interventions Scholars grants aim to support research by advanced graduate students using behavioral economics or behavioral science approaches to examine questions of relevance to issues facing low-income and other vulnerable families in the United States and the social services programs and policies that serve them. These grants are meant to build capacity in the research field to apply a behavioral science or behavioral economics lens to issues facing poor and vulnerable families in the United States, and to foster mentoring relationships between facult
The Foundation’s mission is to support research to improve the lives of young people ages 5-25 in the United States. One way that the Foundation pursues this mission is by investing in high-quality field-initiated studies on improving the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth.
The program supports high-quality field-initiated studies from a range of disciplines and methodologies that are relevant to policies and practices that affect the lives of young people between the ages of 5 and 25 in the United States. Through the program, grants of up to $600,000 over a period of up to three years will be awarded in support of major research designed to build, test, or increase understanding of programs, policies, or practices with the potential to reduce inequality in the academic, social, behavioral, or economic outcomes of young people.
The Research-Practice Partnership (RPP) Grants Program is intended to support education research projects that engage in collaborative and participatory partnerships with project budgets up to $400,000 and durations of up to three years. We accept Intent to Apply forms once a year in this program.
The Small Research Grants Program supports education research projects that will contribute to the improvement of education, broadly conceived, with budgets up to $50,000 for projects ranging from one to five years. We accept applications three times per year.
The Large Research Grants on Education Program supports education research projects that will contribute to the improvement of education, broadly conceived, with budgets ranging from $125,000 to $500,000 for projects ranging from one to five years. We accept Intent to Apply forms twice a year.
The American Lung Association is inviting applications for its Public Policy Research Award program. Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 per year for up to two years will be awarded in support of research on and the evaluation of existing public policy and programs, as well as pilot and demonstration projects that inject innovative ideas and provide evidence for the development of new public policies impacting lung health.
