Limited Submission Opportunities

On occasion, a funding opportunity will arise that is limited to just one or two proposals from each institution. In that case, an internal competition is necessary to pick the most promising applications. Please contact Kris Wolff, Director, Office of Sponsored Programs, to express interest in these opportunities at kwolff@fordham.edu or 718-817-4086.

Current List of Opportunities


Greenwall Foundation Faculty Scholars Program
Internal Competition Deadline at Fordham: 5 p.m., Tuesday, September 4, 2018
Proposals should be sent via email to Kris Wolff at kwolff@fordham.edu

Greenwall Deadlines: October 1, 2018 (LOI); January 11, 2019 (Full Proposal, if invited)

From the Greenwall Foundation website:
The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research. It supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy, and creates a community that enhances future bioethics research by Scholars and Alumni/ae.
Each year, the Foundation selects approximately three Greenwall Faculty Scholars to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program. Applicants must be junior faculty members at a university or non-profit research institute that has tax-exempt status in the United States. Applicants must hold a faculty appointment that allows at least 50 percent of their effort to perform research (often this is a faculty position with at least a 60 percent appointment in a tenure-track position or its equivalent). Priority will be given to applicants who have not yet been considered for tenure or an equivalent promotion; whose research will have an impact on public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice; and who will make important contributions to the field of bioethics over their careers

Fordham may only submit two letters of intent for this award. If you want to be considered for this opportunity, please prepare a three-page, single-spaced description of your proposed project following the instructions for the narrative provided by the Greenwall Foundation: http://www.greenwall.org/how-to-apply.php. As part of the three-page internal proposal, please include a personal statement describing your goals in the field of bioethics. Email to Kris Wolff (kwolff@fordham.edu) by the date/time above.

UPDATE 9/5/18: One slot is filled, and one slot is still open. Please contact Kris ASAP if you are interested in applying for this program.

NEH Summer Stipends Grants

Proposals should be sent via email to Beth Torres, Grants Officer at btorres14@fordham.edu

NEH Deadline: 11:59 p.m., September 26, 2018

From the NEH website:
Summer Stipends grants support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions. Projects must not result solely in the collection of data; instead, they must also incorporate analysis and interpretation.

Summer Stipends grants support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. The grants support projects at any stage of development.

This award is for individual scholars who have been nominated by their institutions. Fordham may nominate only two faculty members for this award.

  • If you want to be considered for this opportunity, please submit a three-page, single-spaced description of your proposed project, a one-page bibliography, and a two-page cv to Beth by the date above.
  • Follow the instructions for the narrative on pages 9-11 of the guidelines: https://www.neh.gov/files/grants/summer-stipends-sep-26-2018.pdf

Your proposal will be reviewed by the internal Fordham Summer Stipends committee. Nominations will be made in time for nominees to polish their proposals before the NEH's deadline.

If you have any questions, please contact Beth Torres, Grants Officer, at 718-817-0861 or btorres14@fordham.edu
