November 2014 Grant Announcements:

National Science Foundation (11/20/2014)

  • Computational Mathematics 
  • This program supports mathematical research in areas of science where computation plays a central and essential role, emphasizing design, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods and algorithms, and symbolic methods. The prominence of computation with analysis of the computational approach in the research is a hallmark of the program. Proposals ranging from single-investigator projects that develop and analyze innovative computational methods to interdisciplinary team projects that not only create and analyze new mathematical and computational techniques but also use/implement them to model, study, and solve important application problems are encouraged.
  • Deadline: Full proposals due by December 15, 2014


Calvin K. Kazanjian Economics Foundation Inc. (11/20/2014)

  • Economic Literacy Grants Program
  • The Economic Literacy Grants Program supports a wide range of projects aimed at increasing economic literacy, especially the best way to teach the subject (research or curriculum development); the impact of economic education (policy studies, measurement of economic understanding); and encouragement of youth and young adults to participate in the economic system after finishing school (research, conferences, outreach programs). New strategies for teaching economics including online and web-based instruction is of interest. Preference for national projects.
  • Deadlines: Annual deadlines for full proposals are February 15, 2015 and September 15, 2015

National Science Foundation (11/17/2014)

  • Earth Science: Instrumentation and Facilities Program 
  • This program supports the acquisition or upgrade of research equipment; development of new instrumentation, techniques, or software; support of national or regional multi-user facilities; and support for early career investigators. Planned research uses of requested instruments, software, and facilities must include basic research on Earth processes supported by core programs or special programs of the Division of Earth Sciences (see for a current list of programs funded by the Division).
  • Deadline: Proposals accepted anytime


National Science Foundation (11/13/2014)

  • Smart and Connected Health (SCH)
  • The goal of the Smart and Connected Health program is to accelerate the development and use of innovative approaches that would support the much needed transformation of healthcare from reactive and hospital-centered to preventive, proactive, evidence-based, person-centered, and focused on well-being rather than disease. The purpose of this program is to develop next generation health care solutions and encourage existing and new research communities to focus on breakthrough ideas in a variety of areas of value to health, such as sensor technology, networking, information and machine learning technology, decision support systems, modeling of behavioral and cognitive processes, as well as system and process modeling.
  • Deadline: Full proposals due December 10, 2014

National Science Foundation (11/11/2014)

  • Law and Social Sciences
  • This program supports social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules, institutions, processes, and behaviors. Fields of study include: Crime, Violence and Punishment, Economic Issues, Governance, Legal Decision-making, Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice, Proposals for Dissertation Research, Standard and Collaborative Research, and Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowships.
  • Deadline: Annual target dates for full proposals are January 15, 2015 and August 1, 2015


National Science Foundation (11/11/2014)

  • Science of Organizations (SoO)
  • The SoO program supports basic research yielding a scientific evidence base for improving the design, development, deployment, management, and effectiveness of organizations of all kinds. Research may involve organizational theory, behavior, sociology or economics, business policy and strategy, communication sciences, entrepreneurship, human resource management, information sciences, managerial and organization cognition, operations management, public administration, social or industrial psychology, and technology and innovation management.
  • Deadline: Annual target dates for full proposals are February 2, 2015 and September 3, 2015


Dreyfus Foundation (11/11/2014)

  • Teacher-Scholar Awards in Chemical Sciences
  • The Camille Dreyfus and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar awards support research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in chemical sciences. Camille Dreyfus awards provide $75,000 based on an independent body of scholarship and demonstrated commitment to education. Henry Dreyfus awards provide $60,000 based on accomplishment in scholarly research with undergraduates and compelling commitment to teaching. Limited submission: one application per institution.
  • Deadlines: Full proposals for the Camille Dreyfus award are due February 10, 2015, and full proposals for the Henry Dreyfus award are due May 18, 2015.


National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (11/11/2014)

  • Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program
  • This program supports diverse local partnerships for wetland, riparian, and coastal habitat restoration. Awards range from $10,000 to $40,000. Projects must include restoration, education, and measurement components. Project sites may be public parks, streams, school campuses, or corporate facilities accessible to the public. Minimum 1:1 match required. A partnership of five or more organizations is also required.
  • Deadline: Full proposals due by February 3, 2015
