Collaborative Research Grants National Endowment for the Humanities

Collaborative Research grants support groups of two or more scholars engaging in significant and sustained research in the humanities. The program seeks to encourage interdisciplinary work, both within the humanities and beyond. Projects that include partnerships with researchers from the natural and social sciences are encouraged, but they must remain firmly rooted in the humanities and must employ humanistic methods.

NSF: Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM

Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM )funds research projects that identify (1) factors that are effective in the formation of ethical STEM researchers and (2) approaches to developing those factors in all the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. CCE STEM solicits proposals for research that explores the following: What constitutes responsible conduct for research (RCR), and which cultural and institutional contexts promote ethical STEM research and practice and why? CCE STEM research projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what constitutes or promotes responsible or irresponsible conduct of research, and how to best instill students with this knowledge. In some cases, projects will include the development of interventions to ensure responsible research conduct. Proposals for awards from minority-serving institutions (e.g. Tribal Colleges and Universities, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Alaska Native or Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions), women's colleges, and institutions primarily serving persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged.

Workforce Development: American Indian Alaska Native Workforce Development Initiative

OMH will partner with HHS Operating Divisions, and the Department of Education to implement a competitive funding mechanism to support the following strategic actions: develop/implement of a program to foster high school students’ interest and success in the health para-professions and bridge programs, including a mentoring program; increase students’ positive attitudes and improve their perception of their ability to enter a career; encourage and support students’ academic progression through high school graduation and community college and/or undergraduate completion; and identify successful strategies and promising models to disseminate lessons learned to geographically isolated communities. This project will focus on improving high school completion rates among AI/AN students, and increasing the number of those students who earn certifications to work in the health care field and allied health programs. The American Indian Alaska Native Workforce Development Initiative is expected to result in: improved high school completion rates for AI/AN students; improved employment rates of recent high school graduates within two years of program implementation; improved recruitment, retention and completion rates for AI/AN students for high school, community college and/or undergraduate completion; increased number of AI/AN and disadvantaged students pursuing public health/health workforce paraprofessional and allied health careers; and, increased participation and completion rates in high school and dual enrollment programs among American Indian/Alaska Native and disadvantaged students.

Youth Suicide Prevention: Youth Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Initiative

The suicide rate is high in the AIAN population for both males and females (34.3 and 9.9 deaths per 100,000 population, respectively). AIAN males are more than twice as likely to commit suicide as most other gender and racial and ethnic subgroups. Suicide rates for AIAN young adults are likely to be underestimated; a previous study found that deaths overall for the AIAN population were underreported by 30 percent. OMH will support community level suicide prevention studies that address individual, relationship, community, and environmental risk factors for suicide. Priority populations include American Indians and Alaska Natives, tribes and geographically isolated communities. The Youth Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Initiative is expected to result in: an increase in protective/resiliency factors among youth; an increased number of youth linked to needed behavioral health/mental health services; a decrease in the number of youth reporting depressive symptoms; and a decrease in suicide risk behaviors among youth.

Facilitating Research at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions: Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) and Research Opportunity Awards

The Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) and Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) funding opportunities support research by faculty members at predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs). RUI proposals support PUI faculty in research that engages them in their professional field(s), builds capacity for research at their home institution, and supports the integration of research and undergraduate education. ROAs typically allow faculty to work as visiting scientists at research intensive organizations where they collaborate with other NSF-supported Investigators.
Proposals Accepted Anytime

NSF: Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP)

The Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP) provides awards to Tribal Colleges and Universities, Alaska Native-serving institutions, and Native Hawaiian-serving institutions to promote high quality science (including sociology, psychology, anthropology, economics, statistics, and other social and behavioral science as well as natural science and education disciplines), technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, research, and outreach. Support is available to TCUP-eligible institutions (see the Additional Eligibility subsection of Section IV of this solicitation) for Instructional Capacity Excellence in TCUP Institutions (ICE-TI), Targeted STEM Infusion Projects (TSIP), Partnerships for Geoscience Education (PAGE), Broadening Participation Research in STEM Education (BPR), Small Grants for Research (SGR), and Preparing for TCUP Implementation (Pre-TI). Through these mechanisms, along with collaborations with other National Science Foundation (NSF) units and its work with other organizations, TCUP aims to increase Native individuals' participation in STEM careers and the quality of STEM programs at TCUP-eligible institutions. TCUP strongly encourages the inclusion of activities that will benefit veterans.
Deadlines differ for each category. Please see Announcement for due dates.
