This Week's Announcements:

National Science Foundation (4/8/2014)

  • Cyberlearning and Future Learning Technologies (Cyberlearning)
  • The purpose of the Cyberlearning and Future Learning Technologies program is to integrate opportunities offered by emerging technologies with advances in what is known about how people learn to advance three interconnected thrusts:
    • Innovation: inventing and improving next-generation genres (types) of learning technologies, identifying new means of using technology for fostering and assessing learning, and proposing new ways of integrating learning technologies with each other and into learning environments to foster and assess learning;
    • Advancing understanding of how people learn in technology-rich learning environments: enhancing understanding of how people learn and how to better foster and assess learning, especially in technology-rich learning environments that offer new opportunities for learning and through data collection and computational modeling of learners and groups of learners that can be done only in such environments; and
    • Promoting broad use and transferability of new genres: extracting lessons from experiences with these technologies that can inform design and use of new genres across disciplines, populations, and learning environments; advancing understanding of how to foster learning through effective use these new technologies and the environments they are integrated into.
    The intention of this program is to advance technologies that specifically focus on the experiences of learners; innovations that simply focus on making teaching easier will not be funded. Proposals that focus on teachers or facilitators as learners are invited; the aim in these proposals should be to help teachers and facilitators learn to make the learning experiences of learners more effective.
  • Deadline: Letter of Intent due May 12, 2014; Full Proposal due July 14, 2014

U.S. Department of Education (4/17/2014)

  • Fulbright Hays- Group Projects Abroad Program
  • This program provides grants to support overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies by teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor. Projects may include short-term seminars, curriculum development, group research or study, or advanced intensive language programs that focus on the humanities, social sciences, or languages. This program holds an annual competition, except the language projects, which compete every three years. Projects must focus on the humanities, social sciences and languages, and must focus on one or more of the following areas: Africa, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific, the Western Hemisphere (Central and South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean), East Central Europe and Eurasia, and the Near East.
  • Deadline: Full Proposal due May 23, 2014

National Institutes of Health (4/16/2014)

  • Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative  
  • The mission of the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative is to enable biomedical scientists to capitalize more fully on the Big Data being generated by those research communities. With advances in technologies, these investigators are increasingly generating and using large, complex, and diverse datasets. - See more at: http://bd2k.nih.gov/about_bd2k.html#sthash.gXN4Ic5o.dpuf

    The mission of the BD2K initiative is to enable biomedical scientists to capitalize more fully on the Big Data being generated by those research communities. Consequently, the biomedical research enterprise is increasingly becoming data-intensive and data-driven. However, the ability of researchers to locate, analyze, and use Big Data (and more generally all biomedical and behavioral data) is often limited for reasons related to access to relevant software and tools, expertise, and other factors. BD2K aims to develop the new approaches, standards, methods, tools, software, and competencies that will enhance the use of biomedical Big Data.
  • Deadlines vary by program.

Previous Week's Announcements:

Health Resources & Services Administration (4/8/2014)

  • Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training for Professionals
  • HRSA and SAMHSA are seeking to train a total of 1,800 additional behavioral health professionals per year through this grant program. The funding is to support pre-degree clinical internships and field placements for master’s-level social workers, psychologists, professional counselors, psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioners, and marriage and family therapists; and, doctoral-level psychologists.
  • Deadline: Full Proposal due June 3, 2014
  • http://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=253408

 

Health Resources & Services Administration (4/8/2014)

  • Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training for Paraprofessionals
  •  HRSA and SAMHSA are seeking to train a total of 1,700 behavioral health paraprofessionals per year through this grant program. The funding is to support education and training of students in community and technical colleges, including tribal colleges and universities, who are seeking to obtain a certificate in a paraprofessional field focusing on the behavioral health needs of at-risk youth and families. Paraprofessional certificate programs may include community health worker, outreach worker, social services aide, mental health worker, substance abuse/addictions worker, youth worker, promotora, and peer paraprofessional. Certificate programs for peer paraprofessionals may also be offered by organizations recognized by their state government to offer peer paraprofessional training programs, and these programs must offer a state licensure or certification to the trainee upon completion.

U.S. Department of Justice (4/8/2014)

  • Investigator-Initiated Research: The Comprehensive School Safety Initiative 
  • This program seeks proposals that address school safety issues directly. Each research effort funded must contribute to our base of knowledge and evidence building about school safety. The research should look broadly at an array of factors that contribute to school safety. Each component of the initiative shall adhere to a single guiding principle: every activity aims to build a solid foundation of knowledge and best practices upon which communities across this country can develop and implement individualized school safety programs that have endured rigorous scientific testing.  The follow are examples of factors and issues that investigators may consider for research and evaluation:
    • The root cause of school violence;
    • Technologies and strategies for increasing school safety, such as surveillance cameras and other safety-directed technologies;
    • School-to-prison pipeline;
    • Evaluation of school safety technical assistance or training;
    • Gaps in the nation's mental health system as it may relate to school safety;
    • Environmental approaches to school safety, including school design and layout.
  • Deadline: Full Proposal due May 20, 2014

National Science Foundation (4/7/2014)

  • Geomorphology and Land Use Dynamics
  • Geomorphology and Land-use Dynamics supports innovative research into processes that shape and modify landscapes over a variety of length and time scales. The program encourages research that investigates quantitatively the coupling and feedback among such processes, their rates, and their relative roles, especially in the contexts of variation in climatic, biologic, and tectonic influences and in light of changes due to human impact.
  • Full Proposal due by July 16, 2014
