Funding Opportunities

Beckman Foundation Accepting LOIs for Young Investigator Program
The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for its 2017 Beckman Young Investigator grant program.

The annual program is intended to provide research support to the most promising young faculty members in the early stages of an academic career in the chemical or life sciences and to foster the invention of methods, instruments, and materials with the potential to open up new avenues of research in science.

Projects proposed for this program should be truly innovative, high-risk, and show promise for contributing to significant advances in chemistry and the life sciences. They should also represent a departure from current research directions rather than an extension or expansion of existing programs. Proposed research that cuts across traditional boundaries of scientific disciplines is encouraged.

Projects are normally funded for a period of four years. Grants typically range around $600,000 over the term of the project, contingent on demonstrated progress after the second year of the award.

The BYI program is open to individual researchers within the first three years of a tenure-track position, or an equivalent independent research appointment, in an academic or nonprofit institution that conducts research in the chemical and life sciences. Candidates must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of application.

LOI Deadline: August 14, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application.

Migraine Research Foundation
The Migraine Research Foundation, in partnership with the Association of Migraine Disorders, has issued a Request for Proposals for migraine research projects.

Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of relevant migraine research, with priority given to translational projects and projects related to migraine variants, childhood migraine, and chronic migraine. Grant funds must be used exclusively for research and directly related research equipment. Capital expenditures, administrative costs, and institutional overhead (including IRB approval, publication costs, and travel costs) will not be funded.

Application Deadline: July 28, 2017

National Endowment for the Humanities - Development Grants / Production Grants
The Media Projects program supports film, television, and radio projects that engage general audiences with humanities ideas in creative and appealing ways. All projects must be grounded in humanities scholarship in disciplines such as history, art history, film studies, literature, drama, religious studies, philosophy, or anthropology. Projects must also demonstrate an approach that is thoughtful, balanced, and analytical (rather than celebratory). The approach to the subject matter must go beyond the mere presentation of factual information to explore its larger significance and stimulate critical thinking. NEH is a national funding agency, so the projects that we support must demonstrate the potential to attract a broad general audience. Film and television projects may be single programs or a series addressing significant figures, events, or ideas. Programs must be intended for national distribution, via traditional carriage or online distribution.

The Division of Public Programs welcomes projects that range in length from short-form to broadcast-length video. The Division of Public Programs also encourages film and television projects that examine international themes and subjects in the humanities, in order to spark Americans’ engagement with the broader world beyond the United States. These projects should demonstrate international collaboration by enlisting scholars based both in the United States and abroad, and/or by working with an international media team. The collaborations should bring broad cross-cultural perspectives to the proposed topics and should be intended primarily for U.S. public audiences.

Radio projects, including podcasts, may involve single programs, limited series, or segments within an ongoing series. They may also develop new humanities content to augment existing radio programming or add greater historical background or humanities analysis to the subjects of existing programs.

Programs receiving production grants may be either broadcast or disseminated online. They may be intended for national or regional distribution. NEH encourages projects that engage public audiences through multiple formats in the exploration of humanities ideas. Proposed projects might include complementary components to a film, television, or radio project. These components should deepen the audience’s understanding of the subject in a supplementary manner: for example, book/film discussion programs, supplemental educational websites, or museum exhibitions. Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and to prepare programs for production. Grants should result in a script and may also yield a detailed plan for outreach and public engagement in collaboration with a partner organization or organizations. See application guidelines for Development Grants.

Production grants support the production and distribution of films, television programs, and radio programs or podcasts that promise to engage a broad public audience.

Ohio Development Services Agency - Ohio Opioid Abuse, Prevention and Treatment Technology Initiative
The Ohio Opioid Abuse, Prevention and Treatment Technology Initiative is to accelerate the development and commercialization of promising new products (or adaptations or modifications) in the categories of medical devices, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and health technology. They should meaningfully address one or more issues associated with the drug crisis driven by use, misuse, abuse and the addictive potential of opioids. Specifically, projects must contribute to near term tangible solutions associated with addiction prevention, treatment and overdose intervention. Technology and products that enable safe and effective treatment of acute and chronic pain without the use of opioids are encouraged.

Letter of Intent Deadline: July 14, 2017 by 2:00 p.m.

Proposal Deadline: August 31, 2017

Ohio Development Services Agency - Ohio Opioid Technology Challenge
The Ohio Opioid Technology Challenge is a prize competition seeking innovative solutions to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with opioid use and addiction by addressing prevention, treatment, and overdose response and avoidance. This will be a multi-phase competition with escalating prize amounts associated with progressive levels of solution development. Each phase of the competition will be associated with highly visible events to showcase ideas, announce awards and details of the next phase of the competition, and generally provide a public forum for the discussion of the opioid crisis in Ohio. The Ohio Development Services Agency is seeking an experienced Competition Manager for this program.
