Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
The Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
is soliciting applications for Offender Reentry Program (ORP) grants. The purpose of the ORP program is to expand and/or enhance substance use disorder treatment and related recovery and reentry services to sentenced substance-abusing adult offenders/ex-offenders who are returning to their families and community from incarceration in state and local facilities including prisons, jails, or detention centers. Applicants are expected to form stakeholder partnerships that will plan, develop and provide a transition from incarceration to community-based substance abuse treatment and related reentry services. Because reentry transition must begin in the correctional facility before release, limited funding may be used for certain activities in institutional correctional settings in addition to the expected community-based services.
Application Deadline: May 26, 2015

Department of Health and Human Services – Administration for Children & Families
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for the Competitive Abstinence Education (CAE) program. The purpose of the CAE program is to provide funding for additional tools to address the rates of teen pregnancy among adolescent youth who are at greatest risk of sexually transmitted infections and most likely to bear children out of wedlock. Program plans will focus on the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by delaying initiation of sexual activity and engaging in healthy relationships. Grantees under this program will be expected to develop a targeted and medically accurate approach to reducing teen pregnancies through abstinence education.
Application Deadline: June 24, 2015

Hartwell Postdoctoral Fellowship Nominations Due by May 15
Case Western Reserve University will receive a Hartwell Fellowship to fund one postdoctoral candidate of their choice who exemplifies the values of the Foundation. Each Hartwell Fellowship will provide support for two years at $50,000 direct cost for two years. Each Fellowship must be used to fund one postdoctoral candidate of the institution’s choice, selected from areas of biomedical science, in appropriate areas of basic and applied life sciences related to human health that are consistent with the values of The Hartwell Foundation, including engineering focused on biomedical applications. Proposals must reflect relevance in terms of potential benefits to children. The Foundation will only consider proposals in biomedical research. The Foundation will not consider for example, research in public health, epidemiology, social science, psychology, ecology, environmental impacts, anthropology, or botany.
It is the intent of The Hartwell Foundation that the Fellowship will support scientists and biomedical engineers who have completed requirements for a doctoral degree and are still in the early stages of career development. The Fellowship must be used to pursue further specialized research training, not to extend or complete clinical training. The Fellowship will be funded in July.
The following rules apply to the Hartwell Fellowship:
Start and End Dates
- Hartwell Fellows must be citizens of the United States
- Fellows must commence their postdoctoral training no later than November 1, or the Fellowship award to the Institution may be rescinded
- Funds may be used for salary, health insurance, or travel related to a scientific meeting, but not for the purchase of supplies or equipment or other fringe benefits
- No part of the Fellowship may cover institutional overhead or other indirect costs, nor should the recipient or the sponsoring research laboratory be obligated or penalized to pay by substitution such indirect costs by any other means
- At the conclusion of funding, the Hartwell Fellow should submit a summary of the impact that the award had on their career goals
If appreciable funds remain following a resignation of the Hartwell Fellow, the sponsoring institution must designate a timely replacement within Foundation guidelines; no adjustment to residual funds will be provided by The Hartwell Foundation
Postdoctoral study will commence upon receipt of funds but in no case later than November 1, 2015. The active period of the Fellowship is intended to be two years from commencement of training, unless the end date is extended by virtue of carryover of funds. At the conclusion of funding, the Hartwell Fellow will submit to the Foundation a summary of the impact that the award had on their career goals.
Nominations must be received by May 12, 2015 and include cv’s of the proposed postdoctoral fellow, a letter and cv of the sponsoring mentoring faculty member, a brief description of the biomedical research project in which the Fellow will be engaged and its relevance to the values of The Hartwell Foundation. The letter of request should also outline that the proposed Fellowships consistent with the rules noted above.
The applications should be sent to DeputyProvost@case.edu no later than May 15, 2015.
