U.S. Department of Justice
Office on Violence Against Women (2/19)
Grants to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking on Campus Program
- The Campus Program encourages a coordinated community approach that enhances victim safety and assistance, and supports efforts to hold offenders accountable. The Campus Program provides seed funding to support activities that develop and strengthen victim services in cases involving sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking on campuses. The Campus Program also aims to strengthen security and investigative strategies to prevent and prosecute these crimes on campuses. Campuses are encouraged to create or revitalize a large-scale impact by adopting policies and protocols that treat violence against women crimes as serious offenses, and by developing victim services and programs that prioritize victim safety, offender accountability, and prevention.
- Deadline: Full Proposals due March 28, 2013
U.S. Department of Defense; Department of the Air Force;
Air Force Office of Scientific Research (2/8/13)
Research Interests of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research
- The focus of AFOSR is on research areas that offer significant and comprehensive benefits to our national warfighting and peacekeeping capabilities. These areas are organized and managed in five scientific Departments: Dynamical Systems and Control (RTA), Quantum and Non- Equilibrium Processes (RTB), Information, Decision and Complex Networks (RTC), Complex Materials and Devices (RTD), and Energy, Power and Propulsion (RTE).
- Dynamical Systems and Control: Seeking research related to future air and space flight. The department's interests include, but are not limited to: Computational Mathematics, Dynamics and Control, Flow Interactions and Control, Multi-Scale Structural Mechanics and Prognosis, Test and Evaluation, and Turbulence and Transition.
- Quantum and Non- Equilibrium Processes: Funds will support research into new classes of quantum phenomena that both creates new knowledge of the physical world and improve the state-of-the-art for devices that perform sensing, information processing, and novel concepts for quantum computing.
- Information, Decision and Complex Networks: Supports research areas including space situational awareness, autonomy, and cyber. The programs in the Department include but are not limited to: Complex Networks, Computational and Machine Intelligence, Dynamic Data Driven Application Systems and Foundations of Information Systems.
- Complex Materials and Devices: This department focuses on meeting the basic research challenges by leading the discovery and development of fundamental science and engineering across three integrated research focus areas: Complex Materials and Structures, Complex Electronics and Fundamental Quantum Processes, and Natural Materials and Systems Research.
- Energy, Power and Propulsion: The research supported by this department spans a considerable set of topics ranging from biological systems to space propulsion, with the following research emphasis areas: Discovery and Development of Energy Sources or Fundamental Mechanisms of Energy Transfer.
- Deadline: No fixed deadline; proposals are reviewed and evaluated as they are received.
National Endowment for the Humanities (2/7/13)
Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions
- Preservation Assistance Grants help small and mid-sized institutions—such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories, cultural organizations, town and county records offices, and colleges and universities—improve their ability to preserve and care for their significant humanities collections. These may include special collections of books and journals, archives and manuscripts, prints and photographs, moving images, sound recordings, architectural and cartographic records, decorative and fine art objects, textiles, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, furniture, historical objects, and digital materials.
- Deadline: Full Proposal due May 1, 2013
U.S. Department of Justice (2/6/13)
Research and Evaluation on Violence Against Woman: Teen Dating Violence, Sexual Violence, and Intimate Partner Violence
- The program supports research and evaluation relating to violence against women. The objectives are to advance knowledge in the areas of: (1) teen dating violence by supporting projects that inform the field about the context of dating violence among adolescents and/or the effectiveness of interventions designed to prevent teen dating violence; (2) sexual violence by supporting projects that develop, test, or adapt measures of sexual victimization experiences and/or test interventions to improve that initial criminal justice response to victims of sexual violence; (3) family court and custody decisions; and/or (4) inquiry in violence against women research.
- Deadline: Full Proposal due on April 22, 2013
