Funding Opportunities

College Art Association - Wyeth Art Publication Grants
Since 2005, the Wyeth Foundation for American Arthas supported the publication of books on American art through the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant, which is administered by the College Art Association.

The program supports the publication of book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. For the purposes of this program, "American art" is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

The program will not consider excavation or other technical reports, articles, previously published works (including collections of previously published essays), or congress proceedings. Museum exhibition or collection catalogues containing substantial scholarship are eligible.

To be considered, applications must submitted by the publisher.

Application Deadline: September 15, 2017

Global Lyme Alliance
Lyme disease is the fastest-growing vector-borne disease in the U.S., with some 329,000 new cases reported in the United States each year and the number of Lyme cases reported annually up nearly twenty-five-fold since national reporting began in 1982. There are no accurate diagnostic tests for Lyme disease, or tests to prove that Lyme bacteria are eradicated or that an individual is cured.

To address these issues, the Global Lyme Alliance, the leading nonprofit dedicated to conquering Lyme and tick-borne disease, has issued a Request for Proposals for grants that help to advance the identification, treatment, and cure of Lyme and tick-borne diseases.

One-year grants (with the possibility of renewal) will be awarded to support innovative research efforts in areas that include but are not limited to antimicrobial development, personalized medicine, identification and treatment of post-treatment Lyme, new diagnostic technologies, the and ecology of emerging tick-borne diseases. Small-scale grants of up to $50,000 for proof-of-concept studies lasting for up to six months are welcomed. Full-scale grants for larger amounts to be spent over the course of a year also may be requested.

Application Deadline: September 15, 2017

Greenwall Foundation
The Greenwall Foundation is requesting proposals for the Fall 2017 cycle of its bioethics grants program, Making a Difference in Real-World Bioethics Dilemmas, to support research to help resolve an important emerging or unanswered bioethics problem in clinical care, biomedical research, public health practice, or public policy. Our aim is to fund innovative projects that will have a real-world, practical impact.

Priority for funding will be given to collaborative projects involving a bioethics scholar and persons with on-the-ground experience in organizations where bioethics dilemmas arise, for example, in clinical care, biomedical research, biotechnology innovation, or public service. Collaboration is important to identify specific bioethics problems that clinicians, researchers, policymakers, and others face in their daily work, and to develop practical resolutions to them. Reviewers will be looking for evidence of a history of collaborative research and a strong collaborative plan.

LOI Deadline: July 12, 2017

The Southern California Mediation Association is sponsoring the 29th Annual SCMA Conference “Mediation in the Real World: New Thinking, New Practices”

This year’s conference will offer full MCLE credit for participants and presenters, and will have varied programming to accommodate the unique interests of the mediation community. While SCMA is looking for proposals in all areas, the conferences traditionally include collaborative law (focusing on family law practice), world-view/community mediation, the business and marketing of mediation, as well as advanced “practicum” training.

In keeping with this year’s theme, “Mediation in the Real World: New Thinking, New Practices,” the sponsor encourages unique, cutting edge proposals with outside-the-box and/or interactive, presentations, as well as those which may be more traditional, theory-based or practice-oriented. It is requested that proposals focus on the learning outcomes and skills that participants attending the presentation will be able to utilize. Workshops that focus on different forums, career opportunities, and emerging markets for mediators are encouraged. And while proposals likely to generate broad interest and appeal will be accepted, more narrowly-tailored ideas will be considered as well.

Nomination Deadline: July 7, 2017
