Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – 2016 Future of Nursing Scholars
|The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a Request for Proposals for its 2016 Future of Nursing Scholars program, an annual program that aims to help develop the next generation of Ph.D.-prepared nurse leaders committed to long-term careers that advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to nursing and health care.|
The three-year program aims to ensure the nation has a diverse and well-trained leadership and workforce committed to building a culture of health across the country. To that end, Future of Nursing Scholars are encouraged to form long-lasting relationships and networks with other scholars in the program, as well as with scholars and fellows in other RWJF programs -- situating them as a formidable group of healthcare leaders.
Schools with research-focused Ph.D. programs in nursing are eligible to apply. Selected schools will choose the Ph.D. students to be designated as Future of Nursing Scholars and must be committed to facilitating the scholar’s completion of the Ph.D. degree in three academic years. The scholars selected also must be committed to completing their Ph.D. program in three academic years. Selected scholars must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of award.
For the 2016 cohort, the program will support up to seventy-five scholars. Each scholar will receive $75,000 to be used over the three years of the program. The award must be matched by $50,000, which can be in-kind, from the school.
Application Deadline: September 17, 2015

Procter & Gamble Company (P&G)
The Procter & Gamble Fund Higher Education Grant Program has been established to provide support for efforts of regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities that will better prepare students for success in business. Grants will be provided for specific projects or programs, not for operating support. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to:
- Improving curriculum to be at the cutting edge in relevance and effectiveness;
- Fostering and enabling leadership opportunities and learning;
- Creating a learning environment that encourages and enhances innovation and creativity;
- Strengthening diversity in thought, participation and ongoing interaction.
In fairness to all participating institutions, there is a limit of two applications per discipline (i.e., two applications from the School of Business, two applications from the School of Engineering, etc.). For example, the program will accept an application from a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and an application from a Professor of Chemical Engineering from the same College/University. If the program receives more than two applications from the same discipline, the program will ask the applicant's Dean to select the two that will be submitted for the competition.
Based on the scope of the project, grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 will be awarded. Awards are for one year only. The grant money must be used as described in the grant application and should not be use to cover overhead cost, stipends or fellowships. One college or university may apply for multiple grants supporting multiple programs but may not receive more than $50,000 in one year.
The application deadline is September 30, 2015

Save the Date - Innovations in Research: Collaborations & Transformations
An Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) Regional Conference
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Global Center for Health Innovation
Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals of Cleveland are pleased to announce that we are jointly hosting an OHRP Regional Conference this fall. Mark your calendar now, and keep an eye out for further updates and registration information coming soon!
Supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Imagination Institute a non-profit organization based in Pennsylvania dedicated to advancing the understanding of and research on imagination, has established under its initiative, Advancing the Science of Imagination: Toward an “Imagination Quotient,” a grants competition targeted to psychologists, neuroscientists, and educators who conduct research on theory of mind, mental imagery, mental simulation, perspective taking, prospective thought, daydreaming, mind wandering, counterfactual thinking, creativity, memory, curiosity, child development, aging, social cognition, and related fields, to support projects that seek to test and validate a proposed measure and develop an intervention for imagination/perspective. This initiative encourages such researchers to collaborate with individuals in corporate, military, school, health, university, governmental, and artistic settings to demonstrate that the proposed measure and interventions work in such a setting. Proposals from around the world will be welcomed.
In 2015, up to fifteen (15), two-year grants in the range of $150,000 to $200,000 will be awarded to scholars from around the world. The awards are intended to generate new scientific information in order to further clarify the construct of imagination and its measurement for the purpose of advancing an understanding of the human mind and its role in the optimization of human potential and flourishing. The award recipients will be brought together for a retreat at the conclusion of the program in the summer of 2017 in order to compare the results of their projects and to discuss longer-term efforts at generating an “Imagination Quotient”.
Application Deadline: September 30, 2015
