The F.J. McGuigan Early Career Investigator Research Prize is given biennially to recognize and support the efforts of an early career psychological scientist who is pursuing research that aims to advance, either empirically or theoretically, a materialistic understanding of the human mind. The research may address any aspect of mental function (e.g., cognition, affect, motivation) and should utilize behavioral and/or neuroscientific methods.

The F.J. McGuigan Early Career Investigator Prize:

  • Advances a unified understanding of the human mind/brain through empirical and/or theoretical research.
  • Encourages promising young researchers to pursue careers in related fields.

As stated in his original bequest, Dr. McGuigan sought to develop a unified conception of brain and behavior:

“The principal purpose... is to support research, to explicate (in Carnap’s sense) the concept of the human mind. The approach must be a materialistic one fostering both empirical and theoretical research. Empirical research would primarily be psychophysiological, but physiological and behavioral research may also qualify for support.”

The Herman Frasch Foundation for Chemical Research is a trust created under the will of Elizabeth Blee Frasch. The purpose of the Foundation is to award grants to nonprofit incorporated institutions to support research in the field of agricultural chemistry which will be of practical benefit to the agricultural development of the United States.

The term “agricultural chemistry” is interpreted broadly by the ACS Committee on Frasch Foundation Grants.  Supported research is primarily chemical or biochemical in nature.  Because such research is often interdisciplinary, a joint effort by two scientists with expertise in different complementary fields may achieve the desired results; joint projects have been endorsed by the Frasch Committee. Projects which focus on nutrition, agronomy, genetics, or entomology are not usually favored.  Proposals must provide opportunities for training students at the graduate, undergraduate, and/or postdoctoral levels.

Letters of Intent - 6/15

Grant Applications Due - 7/15

Research investigating the fundamental biological processes of nerves, muscles and what goes awry to cause disease. Much of this research is not aimed at one specific disease but can apply to many neuromuscular diseases. Projects at this stage, for example, may initially seek answers about a muscular dystrophy, but ultimately lead to a therapy for ALS. This is how MDA’s broad coverage of diseases can be so powerful. Basic research that results in the identification of a therapeutic target also may be called "discovery research."

MDA funds basic research primarily through research grants, which are three-year projects designed to answer specific questions. These may be held either by academic researchers or by companies doing the earliest stages of drug discovery. Development grants are training grants for senior postdoctoral researchers seeking to establish themselves as premier neuromuscular researchers. Many research grants go to researchers who started out with development grants, and past development grantees have gone on to become leaders in the neuromuscular research community.

Applicants may have limited or no preliminary results for a research project they wish to pursue, with the intention of using the preliminary results obtained to seek continuation funding from other agencies. The DNI grants are to be used to illustrate proof of principle or concept, to test a hypothesis, or to demonstrate feasibility of an approach.

The DNI grants program is seeking investigator-initiated, original research across the spectrum of our mission. Original research is defined as being different from that performed previously by the PI as part of their graduate or postdoctoral studies. Excluded from consideration are proposals in which the ideas being presented are a mere extension of research from the PI’s graduate or postdoctoral experience. Research projects must be unique.

The New Directions Grants Program aims to stimulate a new direction of research for established faculty, and to support the careers of their student scientists and engineers.

 

The New Directions (ND) grants program provides funds to scientists and engineers with limited—or even no—preliminary results for a research project they wish to pursue, and who intend to use the PRF-driven preliminary results to seek continuation funding from other agencies. ND grants are to be used to illustrate proof of concept/feasibility. Accordingly, they are to be viewed as seed money for new research ventures.

A "new research direction" is something different from previous research performed by the lead principal investigator (lead PI). But, it may involve a field of science or engineering in which others are already working. Therefore, the proposed research should not be in the same direction as—or overlap with—current projects in the lead PI’s research group. Excluded from consideration will be

  • Lead PIs who have had previous support or current funding for the project, and
  • Proposals presenting ideas that are a logical extension of ongoing research from the lead PI’s laboratory.

The Whitehall Foundation, through its program of grants and grants-in-aid, assists scholarly research in the life sciences. It is the Foundation's policy to assist those dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by Federal Agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. The Foundation is currently interested in basic research in neurobiology, defined as follows: Invertebrate and vertebrate (excluding clinical) neurobiology, specifically investigations of neural mechanisms involved in sensory, motor, and other complex functions of the whole organism as these relate to behavior. The overall goal should be to better understand behavioral output or brain mechanisms of behavior.

Research grants are available to established scientists of all ages working at accredited institutions in the United States. Applications will be judged on the scientific merit and the innovative aspects of the proposal as well as on the competence of the applicant. Research grants of up to three years will be provided. A renewal grant with a maximum of two years is possible, but it will be awarded on a competitive basis. Research grants will not be awarded to investigators who have already received, or expect to receive, substantial support from other sources, even if it is for an unrelated purpose. Research grants normally range from $30,000 to $75,000 per year.

The Foundation emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers and productive senior scientists who wish to move into new fields of interest. Consideration is given, however, to applicants of all ages.

Letters of Intent - 12/15

Grant Applications Due - 1/31

Research investigating the fundamental biological processes of nerves, muscles and what goes awry to cause disease. Much of this research is not aimed at one specific disease but can apply to many neuromuscular diseases. Projects at this stage, for example, may initially seek answers about a muscular dystrophy, but ultimately lead to a therapy for ALS. This is how MDA’s broad coverage of diseases can be so powerful. Basic research that results in the identification of a therapeutic target also may be called "discovery research."

MDA funds basic research primarily through research grants, which are three-year projects designed to answer specific questions. These may be held either by academic researchers or by companies doing the earliest stages of drug discovery. Development grants are training grants for senior postdoctoral researchers seeking to establish themselves as premier neuromuscular researchers. Many research grants go to researchers who started out with development grants, and past development grantees have gone on to become leaders in the neuromuscular research community.

Science and Engineering:
The W.M. Keck Foundation's Science and Engineering program area seeks to benefit humanity by supporting high-risk/high-impact
projects in physical science and engineering that are distinctive and novel in their approach to intractable problems, push the edge of
their field, or question the prevailing paradigm. It encourages projects that are high-risk with the potential for transformative impact.
"High-risk" comprises a number of factors, including unconventional approaches and emerging areas of research. "Transformative" may mean creation of a new field of research, development of new instrumentation enabling observations not previously possible, or
discovery of knowledge that challenges prevailing perspectives.

Medical Research Program:
The W.M. Keck Foundation's Medical Research program area seeks to advance the frontiers of the life sciences by supporting basic
research that is high-risk and has the potential to transform its field or question the prevailing paradigm. Past grants have been
awarded to support pioneering biological research, including the development of promising new technologies, instrumentation, or
methodologies. Research projects should focus on basic research and questions and not be clinical in nature. Projects should also
focus on basic mechanisms with broad applications and not specific diseases.

Very important: Projects must fall outside the mission of public funding agencies and demonstrate that private philanthropy generally,
and the Keck Foundation in particular, is essential to the project's success.

Projects that include the following may be viewed more favorably:

  • Breakthroughs that develop a finding, method, or technology that can then be utilized in a wider range of research interests;
  • Interdisciplinary teams;
  • Extensive involvement from students, both graduate and undergraduate;
  • Lasting impact on their departments, colleges, or CSU as a whole;
  • Proposals with budgets closer to $1 million.

Keck Foundation does not support:
Clinical research or treatment trials;
Translational research;
Energy, climate change, and projects whose benefits accrue largely to the pharmaceutical industry

Education and Professional Advancement for Underrepresented Groups

Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, and women are underrepresented among M.S. and Ph.D. recipients in the natural sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics, a trend that continues throughout the academic pipeline–from starting assistant professors to senior academic administrators.  Grantmaking in this Foundation program aims to increase the diversity of higher education in STEM fields through college and university initiatives to support the education and professional advancement of high-achieving scholars from underrepresented groups.

Grantmaking is divided into two subprograms:

Sloan Minority Ph.D. program (MPHD) aims to increase the number of underrepresented minorities who graduate from Ph.D. programs in STEM fields through the support of a select number of University Centers of Exemplary Mentoring (UCEMs). UCEMS are campus-based initiatives that provide scholarships, mentoring, and other professional support to minority graduate students in STEM.

Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership (SIGP) provides fellowships and administrative funding to four regional centers that foster supportive, interconnected communities devoted to successfully matriculating American Indian and Alaska Native graduate students into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Master’s and Ph.D. programs.

In addition, this program makes a number of grants supporting select initiatives that promote the education and professional advancement of women and underrepresented minorities within STEM fields in academe.

The MPHD and SIGP programs are administered by longtime Foundation partner, the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME), which receives applications, selects students for scholarships, administers awards, and supports recruitment efforts by participating faculty.

This program aims to revolutionize our understanding of the quantities, movements, distribution, and properties of deep Earth carbon and its roles in the origin and limits of life, the creation of hydrocarbons, and the global carbon cycle.  To achieve this end, Sloan grantmaking spearheaded the creation of a multidisciplinary international network of more than 1000 geoscientists and technologists, the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO), that will

  • Benchmark the current state of our understanding of deep carbon;
  • Develop and execute an ambitious, intellectually rigorous research agenda;
  • Cooperatively raise funding and execute that research agenda;
  • Synthesize and disseminate findings to the larger scientific community and the public;
  • Strengthen the geophysical research community through the training of the next generation of young geoscientists and through the development of new instruments, models, and analytical methods.

Headquartered at the Carnegie Institution of Washington and led by geologist Robert Hazen, the DCO is divided into four research communities, each focused on a different area of deep carbon research:

  • The Extreme Physics and Chemistry community explores how the high temperatures and pressures deep in Earth alter the physical and chemical properties of carbon.
  • The Reservoirs and Fluxes community focuses on where the carbon is, how much there is of it, and how and why it moves both within the mantle and between the mantle, the crust, and the surface.
  • The Deep Energy community examines the abundance, distribution, and origins of abiotic hydrocarbons and reactions between water and rock that produce energy;
  • The Deep Life directorate seeks to characterize the exotic microbial communities in the deep earth, how they survive, and their relation to life on the surface.

People average 23 hours a day indoors where we breathe and come in contact with trillions of microorganisms—tiny life forms invisible to the naked eye. Human beings ourselves are composted of ten times as many microbial cells as human cells and we are constantly shedding, acquiring and indeed sharing microbes.

Historically environmental research and policy have focused on natural or urban outdoor environments. Little is known about the complex microbial ecosystems found in the built environment. The goal of the Microbiology of the Built Environment program is to grow a new field of scientific inquiry.

Over the next five years, Sloan's objectives are as follows:

  1. To push the research frontier including the development of standardized techniques and protocols, and to educate a small leadership cohort through a multidisciplinary university-based Biology and the Built Environment Center at the University of Oregon, led by Jessica Green, Brendan Bohannan, and Charlie Brown.
  2. To build a national, multidisciplinary community by establishing a network of scientists, engineers, and architects working on these issues through theMicrobiology of the Built Environment Network at the University of California, Davis, led by Jonathan Eisen.
  3. To improve the cohesiveness of the community and its ability to communicate internally and externally by developing data visualization and imaging techniques and repositories through a consortium of four institutions: University of Chicago (Folker Meyer), Marine Biological Laboratory(Mitch Sogin), University of Colorado(Rob Knight), and University of California, Riverside(Jason Stajich).  
  4. To demonstrate the excitement and value of the field by supporting a small number of research targets of opportunity.
  5. To convince traditional U.S. government funding agencies to include research on the built environment in their research plans by developing a compelling, widely accepted research agenda.

GOAL

To conserve the ecological integrity of the western United States and Canada for people and wildlife.

We support four strategies designed to achieve these goals across twelve U.S. states and three Canadian provinces:

  • Conserving land, with a goal of improving the ecological integrity of 300 million high-priority acres by 2035. The simplest definition of ecological integrity is that a place is sufficiently protected to ensure that unspoiled nature thrives
  • Improving the water flows of key rivers, with a goal of improving the ecological integrity of 8,000 high-priority river miles by 2035.
  • Increasing western clean energy, with a goal of reducing the development of fossil fuels on 85 million high-priority acres by 2035.
  • Building broad support by engaging ranchers, farmers, hunters, anglers, faith-based organizations, as well as local businesses in areas where their influence is crucial to making progress on land, river, and energy goals.

The conservation grantmaking embraces the region west of the Rocky Mountains in the United States and Canada, and includes Alaska. If you think your project or organization fits within our guidelines, you are invited to submit a Letter of Inquiry. Please use the online Letter of Inquiry. Letters of Inquiry are accepted at any time.

Working Longer

Americans are working later in life, delaying retirement for a variety of reasons. While some continue working by choice, others needto remain in the workforce for financial reasons. Regardless of their motivation, the result is that people in the United States are working beyond what conventionally is thought of as retirement age. While most studies related to this issue have focused on how individually based factors such as health status, pension plans, and financial incentives influence the decision to retire, relatively little is known about employment patterns, obstacles to employment, or the ensuing economic impact.

The Foundation’s Working Longer program began grant making in 2010 to expand and deepen our understanding of aging Americans’ work patterns. The goal is to understand a) employer practices by industry and sector; b) obstacles to continued employment of older Americans; and c) the economic consequences for both individuals and for the federal budget.

The Young Investigator Award is a two-year research grant awarded to a cancer scientist as the beginning of their investigative career. This grant is intended to support scientists who have little or no established funding "track records" and who have not yet qualified for significant external research support at the time of submission. The Young Investigator Award is designed to nurture young scientists in the pursuit of independent hypotheses. Applicants are expected to be in the first four years of a tenure-eligible faculty appointment. 

Particularly interested in funding research focused on decoding the mechanics of cancer, its development, diagnosis and treatment, using genomics, informatics, molecular engineering, and image-oriented research among other scientific disciplines.
