Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC)
The CTSC Annual Pilot Program is for researchers to conduct innovative translational research projects focused on the invention, preclinical development and/or first in man studies of novel therapeutic agents, biomedical devices, and diagnostics designed to address unmet clinical needs. Funding is intended to facilitate development of enabling technologies; new therapeutic, diagnostic or outcomes assessment approaches and/or device; novel cross-disciplinary collaborative programs; and promote research in the community.
Research which may create intellectual property is encouraged. If funding would enhance an existing non-federally funded project or enable a proposal to a federal agency for use of CTSC and CCTRP resources, the application would be considered. This pilot has few restrictions and allows for the hiring of personnel. Researchers new to clinical research, clinical research scholars, or experienced researchers who are moving into a new area of research are strongly encouraged to apply.
Available Funds: Up to $50,000 per project for up to one year of support.
Deadline for Letter of Intent: January 15, 2015.

National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA)
Founded in 1987, the National Museum of Women in the Arts is the only major museum in the world solely dedicated to recognizing the creative contributions of women. By bringing to light remarkable women artists of the past while also promoting the best women artists working today, the museum directly addresses the gender imbalance in the presentation of art in the U.S. and abroad, thus assuring great women artists a place of honor now and into the future.
The Suzanne and James Mellor Prize of $50,000 is awarded annually to the author of the best proposal for a scholarly book on an individual woman artist or subject related to the mission of NMWA.
The purpose of the award is to encourage the highest quality scholarship on women artists from any time period or nationality and to enhance the role of the museum in shaping scholarly dialogue on women in the arts.
Deadline: Jan. 1, 2015
The official announcement and description of this opportunity may be found on the NMWA website.
