United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

The U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security graduate research grant program is generously funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with an aim to boost the number of future leaders and decision-makers who have the scientific base needed to effectively study and promote sustainable food systems. The U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security program is implemented by the Purdue University Center for Global Food Security.

The Letter of Intent is due by September 4, 2014.

This program supports exceptional U.S. graduate students conducting research on topics related to USAID’s global hunger and food security initiative—Feed the Future. All topics that relate to food security and are linked to the research strategies of the Feed the Future initiative are eligible. Applicants must focus their food security related graduate research in a single, developing country context and collaborate with a mentor from an International Agricultural Research Center (IARC), or a qualifying National Agricultural Research System (NARS) unit. Two application cycles are held annually, in the Spring and Fall semesters. For more information, visit the Program’s website.

Multi-Arts Production Fund (MAP)

Administered by Creative Capital, with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Multi-Arts Production Fund (MAP) was founded on the principle that experimentation drives human progress, no less in art than in science or medicine.

Starting on September 8, MAP will begin accepting Letters of Inquiry from artists, ensembles, producers, and arts presenters whose work in the disciplines of contemporary performance embodies this spirit of exploration and inquiry. The fund is particularly interested in work that examines notions of cultural difference or “the other," whether based in class, gender, generation, race, religion, sexual orientation, or another aspect of diversity. Only projects that contain a live performance will be considered.

See the MAP Fund website for complete program guidelines, a schedule for upcoming informational webinars (beginning August 15), and application procedures.

 
Center for International Affairs, CWRU

Over the last three years the Center for International Affairs has provided nearly $100,000 to fund 15 projects in 17 countries to develop and progress sustainable international initiatives. Learn more about the grant program as well as previous winning proposals and project updates on Thursday September 25, 2014, from 12-1:30 pm at Tomlinson Hall Large Conference Room, 1st Floor 135.

This event is open to all faculty and staff. Lunch will be provided.

German Historical Institute (GHI)

The GHI awards short-term fellowships to German and American doctoral students as well as postdoctoral scholars in the fields of German history, the history of German-American relations, and the history of the role of Germany and the USA in international relations. These fellowships are also available to German doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars in the field of American history. GHI especially invites applications from doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars who currently do not receive funding from their home institutions.

The fellowships are usually granted for periods of one to six months but, in exceptional cases and depending on the availability of funds, they can be extended by one month. The research projects must draw upon primary sources located in the United States.

The GHI will not provide funding for preliminary research, manuscript composition or the revision of manuscripts. It will give clear priority to those postdoc projects that are designed for the "second book".

The official announcement and description of this opportunity may be found on the GHI website.
