Limited Submission Reminder: 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.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Health Care Delivery and Policy Research Contracts
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society announces the following funding opportunities:
• What are the factors related to cost-escalation of MS DMT's and how does the cost of DMT's, particularly out of pocket costs, relate to access to DMT's, payer's policies concerning coverage, initiation of and adherence to therapy, and the ways in which people with MS view the value of treatment? The Society would like to fund this priority in two phases with the cost component on a fast-tracked basis and the value component as a longer-term component.
• What is the extent to which people with MS utilize complementary and alternative medicine? To what extent is this utilization part of an integrative medicine approach that combines mainstream medicine and CAM? What are the policies followed by payers for coverage of CAM independently and as part of integrative medicine?
• What are the barriers preventing access to rehabilitation services, particularly maintenance services among people with MS and what are some of the potential solutions to these barriers?
Letter of Intent Deadline: October 7, 2015
