Two Three things that recently popped up in my mailbox:
As part of the long-awaited implementation of the federal initiative to standardize the grant process across all federal agencies, Grants.gov has published the first edition of a quarterly newsletter, Succeed, and launched a federal funding opportunity database and e-mail alert service. Through the electronic newsletter, Grants.gov will detail advances in the federal grant management standardization process. The first edition includes articles on the Find functionality of the federal funding opportunity database as well as the Apply Pilot.
In 2003-2004, Rockefeller Resident Fellowships in the Humanities and the Study of Culture will be offered at host institutions that were selected for their potential to promote new work in the humanities. Host institutions include academic departments, interdisciplinary programs, museums, research libraries and community cultural centers that select scholars to receive Rockefeller Fellowships. They encourage interaction between the visiting fellows and their own scholarly communities, and make libraries, special collections and other facilities available in specialized areas of research. http://www.rockfound.org/
American Philosophical Society
The American Philosophical Society is accepting applications for grants to support research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge.
- Who is eligible: scholars who hold doctoral degrees or who have published work of doctoral character and quality.
- Deadlines for applications: October 1 and December 1.
- Total amount to be awarded and number of awards: not specified.
- Amount of individual awards: $1,000 to $6,000.
Since 1933 the American Philosophical Society has awarded small grants to scholars in order to support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. Between 1989 and 2003 our Franklin Research Grant program has awarded well over $4 million to 1,400 scholars. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help meet the costs of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes, the purchase of microfilm, photocopies or equivalent research materials, the costs associated with fieldwork, or laboratory research expenses. The Society does not pay overhead or indirect costs to any institution, or costs of publication. http://www.amphilsoc.org/grants/franklin.htm
