Limited Submission Opportunities

Limited Submissions

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.

DHHS, Office of Minority Health - Empowered Communities for a Healthier Nation Initiative (ECI)
Sponsor Deadline: Full Proposal – August 1, 2017

Synopsis of Program:
The ECI program is intended to provide support for minority and/or disadvantaged communities disproportionately impacted by the opioid epidemic, childhood/adolescent obesity, or serious mental illness. It seeks to prevent opioid abuse, increase access to opioid treatment and recovery services, and reduce the health consequences of opioid abuse; reduce obesity prevalence and disparities in weight status among children and adolescents; and reduce the impact of serious mental illness and improve screening for serious mental illness at the primary care level. The ECI seeks to demonstrate the effectiveness of collaborations that include academic medical centers, prevention research centers, teaching hospitals, or Tribal epidemiology centers, and community based organizations to reduce significant health disparities impacting minorities and disadvantaged populations through the implementation of evidence-based interventions and promising practices with the greatest potential for impact.

Please download the full guidelines at this link.

Fordham may submit three applications in total, one per focus (opioid abuse, child/adolescent obesity and serious mental illness), for this competition.

NSF - ADVANCE: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers - Adaptation Grants only
Sponsor Deadlines:
Pre-Proposal – August 9, 2017 at 5 p.m.
Full Proposal – September 13, 2017 at 5 p.m.

Synopsis of Program from NSF:
The goals of the ADVANCE program are (1) to develop systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic STEM [1] careers; (2) to develop innovative and sustainable ways to promote gender equity that involve both men and women in the STEM academic workforce; and (3) to contribute to the research knowledge base on gender equity and the intersection of gender and other identities in STEM academic careers. The ADVANCE program contributes to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce because of the focus on equity for STEM academic faculty who are educating, training, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.

The Adaptation track supports the adaptation and implementation of evidence-based organizational change strategies, ideally from among those developed and implemented by ADVANCE projects. Adaptation awards may support the adaptation and implementation of proven organizational change strategies within a non-profit two-year or four-year academic institution that has not had an ADVANCE Institutional Transformation award. Adaptation awards may also be made to a STEM organization to implement systemic change strategies focused across all STEM disciplines, several STEM disciplines, or within one STEM discipline.

Fordham may only submit one application for this competition.
If you are interested in submitting to this program please contact Kris Wolff, Director, Office of Sponsored Programs at kwolff@fordham.edu.


NIH - NINDS Neuroscience Development for Advancing the Careers of a Diverse Research Workforce (R25)
Sponsor Deadlines:
Letter of Intent – by August 25, 2017 at the latest (optional but requested)
Full Proposal – September 25, 2017 at 5 p.m.

Synopsis of Program from National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke:
The over-arching goal of this program is to support educational activities that enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research workforce by (1) increasing the pool of current and future Ph.D.-level research scientists from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical neuroscience research; and (2) facilitating the career advancement/transition of the participants to the next step of their neuroscience careers. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on NINDS relevant research experiences, mentoring activities that enhance competencies or leadership education and courses on skills development. Programs that target transitions and/or more than one career stage for neuroscience career advancement and progression are strongly encouraged.

Fordham may only submit one application for this competition.
If you are interested in submitting to this program please contact Kris Wolff, Director, Office of Sponsored Programs at kwolff@fordham.edu.


NEH - Summer Stipends
Deadlines:

Sponsor – September 27, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.

Synopsis of Program from NEH:
Summer Stipends 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 support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development.

Fordham may only put forward two nominees for this competition.
If you are interested in submitting to this program please contact Beth Torres, Humanities Grant Officer, at btorres@fordham.edu.
