The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts – 2015 William H. Johnson Prize
The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.
The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For their purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2003 is eligible to apply in 2015, but not in 2016. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years.
The 2015 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2015.
Application Deadline: September 18, 2015

NEW Limited Submission: Greenwall Foundation: Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics
Key Deadlines: September 11, 2015, 5:00pm (CWRU Letter of Intent), October 9, 2015, 12:00pm EST (external Letter of Intent).
The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research. Each year about three Greenwall Faculty Scholars are selected to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program.
The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy.
Scholars and Alumni/ae attend twice-yearly meetings, where they present their work in progress, receive feedback and mentoring from the Faculty Scholars Program Committee and other Scholars, and have the opportunity to develop collaborations with other researchers. The ongoing involvement of Alumni/ae with the Program provides them ongoing opportunities for professional development and feedback and engages them in mentoring of younger Scholars.
The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program creates a community that enhances future bioethics research by Scholars and Alumni/ae.
The Faculty Scholars Program Committee provides oversight and direction for the program, and is involved with selection of the Scholars but with mentoring and faculty development activities.
Up to two applicants from a university will be considered in each application cycle. Institutions are requested to have an internal screening and selection process. No more than one award per institution will be made in each Faculty Scholars grant cycle. The unit of award will be the overseeing university, thus if a university with a law school, medical school, several teaching hospitals, and a faculty of arts and sciences, nominates two applicants in a cycle, only one may be chosen.

Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative – Career Development Training Opportunity
The Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) KL2 a post-doctoral training program with an emphasis on multidisciplinary clinical and translational research, offers an innovative career development opportunity for qualified candidates.
The CTSC KL2 is designed to train the nation’s future leaders in clinical and translational research, and is part of the NIH Roadmap aimed at “re-engineering the clinical research enterprise.” The CTSC KL2 has just welcomed this year’s cohort of scholars, who were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants:
- Mohamed Abazeed, MD, PhD (Radiation Oncology; Translational Hematology & Oncology, CCF)
- Stefanie Avril, MD (Pathology, CWRU)
- Nicholas Schiltz, PhD (Epidemiology & Biostatistics, CWRU)
- Jennifer Sweet, MD (Neurosurgery, University Hospitals Case Medical Center)
CTSC KL2 is now seeking applications for next year’s cohort.
Qualified candidates must:
- Hold an MD, PhD, DDS, PharmD, PsyD, or equivalent degree
- Demonstrate a keen interest in clinical research
- Have an appointment in one of the CTSC partner institutions on or before July 1, 2016
- Be a U.S. citizen or have permanent resident status
Each scholar will embark on a 4-year program of intensive training in multidisciplinary team-based, patient-oriented clinical research, combining an innovative curriculum with mentored research experiences.
Applications will be accepted between 7/1/15 and 10/12/15.

March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center Ohio Collaborative
The March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center Ohio Collaborative announces the 2015 funding cycle for its Innovation Catalyst Grant Program. The Collaborative was established in 2013 to study the unknown causes of preterm birth. Ohio partners in the Collaborative include Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University of Cincinnati, Ohio State University, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Mount Carmel Health System, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals and MetroHealth System of Cleveland. Dartmouth College, University of Iowa, University of South Florida, Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis are also participating sites. The Collaborative is currently focusing on five thematic areas: Evolutionary Synthesis of Human Pregnancy, Genetics of Unique Human Populations, Molecular Developmental Biology of Pregnancy, Progesterone Signaling in Pregnancy Maintenance and Preterm Birth, and Sociobiology of Racial Disparities in Preterm Birth. The Collaborative aims to foster further discovery across these thematic areas by encouraging new interactions of transdisciplinary researchers called Innovation Catalysts. A primary objective of this program is to optimize the ability of these teams to pursue new science with excellence and immediacy.
Eligibility: Open to faculty-level investigators from Collaborative sites and from other Ohio academic and medical institutions. Emphasis on state- and region-wide transdisciplinary interactions is encouraged.
The attached application should be completed which includes the following:
1. Proposal, including a Specific Aims page and up to six pages outlining the Research Strategy. Preliminary data are not required but may be included if available.
2. NIH Biosketch for principal investigator and key personnel.
3. Budget. A project period of up to 2 years may be requested. The combined budget for a two year project may not exceed $100,000 with a maximum of $50,000 requested in any single year. Faculty salaries (limited by NIH cap, up to 15% support) may be included. Only direct costs are eligible.
Application deadline is September 15, 2015. Please submit completed application to Stephanie Swart at Stephanie.Swart@cchmc.org by email as a single pdf document.
