FUNDING ALERTS

 

The University of Florida’s Smathers Libraries Grants Program staff is experimenting with a new electronic format for informing the university community about grants, fellowships, and award funding opportunities.  This is the first in a series of Funding Alerts. If you are not a member of the Library faculty or staff and would like to receive future Funding Alerts, please submit your email address, name and department to Kelley Cunningham, kelcunn@uflib.ufl.edu. Comments about this pilot project are welcome.

 

For opportunities which limit the number of applications from single institutions, “Limited Application Programs,” please contact the Research Support Unit in the Office of Research, Mary Vallianatos, mvallian@ufl.edu, as soon as possible to determine if an internal selection process is necessary.

    DEADLINE: November 5, 2008

 

Awards are made for one to three years and normally range from $50,000 to $100,000 per year.

 

Scholarly Editions Grants support the preparation of editions of pre-existing texts and documents that are currently inaccessible or available in inadequate editions. Projects must be undertaken by a team of at least one editor and one other staff member. Grants typically support editions of significant literary, philosophical, and historical materials, but other types of work, such as musical notation, are also eligible.

by an individual scholar that, because of its scope or complexity,

requires additional staff and resources beyond the individual's salary.

 

 http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/collaborative.html

 

----------------

3. 2008-09 UF CLAS Preliminary Study Grants

 

    DEADLINE: November 6, 2009

 

These grants are designed to help faculty produce preliminary results to support resubmission of a major grant proposal. Note that these are not typical "seed grants" in that it is required that a proposal for a grant of at least $100,000 has been submitted recently and declined by the agency. The purpose of the CLAS PSG program is to enhance the likelihood that such proposals will be funded upon resubmission to the same agency. Indirect cost returns to the college will be used to fund this program.

Please note that faculty who recently received large startup packages meant to fund preliminary work will not be eligible for the grant. Priority will be given to faculty who have not previously received major funding and those who have had limited funding for several years and are seeking to increase their grant support.

The guidelines (http://www.clas.ufl.edu/forms/2008-CLAS-PSG-guidelines.pdf) should be consulted for details on the application process. Each proposal must be covered with an application/budget form (a pdf form that can be filled using Adobe Reader or Acrobat; http://www.clas.ufl.edu/forms/2008-CLAS-PSG-application.pdf) and consists of a 2 page project description/justification, the declined proposal/reviewers' comments, and a CV. The PSG maximum budget is $15,000 per grant.

4. Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG)

 

    DEADLINE: Letter of intent November 11, 2008, application due   December 11, 2008

 

OEDG Planning Grants offer up to 12 months of funding, not to exceed $40,000.

 

Track 1 proposals may now request funding for up to three years, with maximum total funding of $200,000.

 

Track 2 awards support projects for up to five years. The maximum award under Track 2 is $2 million, but the average award size is expected to be on the order of $1 million.

 

The Directorate for Geosciences of the National Science Foundation supports research and education in the Atmospheric, Earth, and Ocean Sciences. The Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) Program is designed to address the fact that certain groups are underrepresented in the geosciences relative to the proportions of those groups in the general population. The primary goal of the OEDG Program is to increase participation in the geosciences by African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans (American Indians and Alaskan Natives), Native Pacific Islanders (Polynesians or Micronesians), and persons with disabilities. A secondary goal of the program is to increase the perceived relevance of the geosciences among broad and diverse segments of the population.

5. Collaborative Humanities and Related Social Science Research

 

    DEADLINE: November 12, 2008

 

Awards range from $60,000 to $140,000.

 

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) supports collaborative research in the humanities and related social sciences. Collaborations need not be interdisciplinary or inter-institutional, but must involve at least two scholars; applicants at the same institution must demonstrate why local funding is insufficient to support the project. It is hoped that projects of successful applicants will help demonstrate the range and value of both collaborative research and inquiry in the humanities, and model how such collaboration may be carried out successfully. Collaborations that involve the participation of assistant and associate faculty members, or that of scholars at different kinds of institutions, are particularly encouraged.

6. Sustainable Digital Data Preservation and Access Network Partners (Data Net)

 

    DEADLINE: Pre-proposal November 13, 2008, Final deadline: May 15, 2009

 

Estimated Number of Awards: 5   - Two to three awards are anticipated in each of two review cycles (one review cycle for fiscal year FY2008 awards and one for FY2009) for a total of five awards, contingent on the quality of proposals received and pending the availability of funds.

Each award is limited to a total of up to $20,000,000 (direct plus indirect costs) for up to 5 years.

 

Science and engineering research and education are increasingly digital and increasingly data-intensive. Digital data are not only the output of research but provide input to new hypotheses, enabling new scientific insights and driving innovation. Therein lays one of the major challenges of this scientific generation: how to develop the new methods, management structures and technologies to manage the diversity, size, and complexity of current and future data sets and data streams. This solicitation addresses that challenge by creating a set of exemplar national and global data research infrastructure organizations (dubbed Data Net Partners) that provide unique opportunities to communities of researchers to advance science and/or engineering research and learning.

    DEADLINE: JANUARY 28, 2009

 

Awards typically do not exceed $40,000.

 

America’s Historical and Cultural Organizations grants support traveling or long-term museum exhibitions, library-based projects, interpretation of historic places or areas, interpretive Web sites, or other project formats that creatively engage audiences in exploring humanities ideas and questions.

Planning grants can be used to plan, refine, and develop the content and interpretive approach of a project. Applicants should have already conducted preliminary consultation with scholars to help shape the humanities content of the project and with other programming advisers appropriate to the project’s format.

38. Develop and Produce Creative Humanities Media Projects

 

    DEADLINE: JANUARY 28, 2009

 

Awards for development range from $40,000 to $75,000.

 

1. Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop the humanities content and format and to prepare programs for production. These grants cover a wide range of activities including, but not limited to, meetings and individual consultations with scholars, location and archival research, preliminary interviews, preparation of program scripts, designs for interactivity and digital distribution, and the creation of partnerships for outreach activities and public engagement with the humanities. The product of development grants should be the refinement of the humanities ideas, a script, or a design document for (or a prototype of) digital media components or projects. Development grant products may also result in a detailed plan for outreach and public engagement in collaboration with partner organizations.

Awards last for one to three years and may range from $100,000 to $800,000.

 

2. Production grants support the preparation of a program for distribution. Applicants must submit a script for a radio or television program or a prototype or storyboard for a digital media project that demonstrates a solid command of the humanities ideas and scholarship about the subject. The script for a radio or television program or prototype or storyboard for a digital media project should also show how the narrative elements, visual approach, and interactive design combine to present the humanities ideas. Applicants must have consulted with the appropriate scholars about the project and obtained their commitment as advisers. Finally, applicants must have recruited the media team, including at a minimum the producer, director, writer, and, for a digital media project, the interactive designer.

39. Interpreting America’s Historic Places

 

    DEADLINE: January 28, 2009

 

Awards typically do not exceed $400,000

 

As part of the NEH’s We the People program, Interpreting America’s Historic Places grants support public humanities projects that exploit the evocative power of historic places to address themes and issues central to American history and culture, including those that advance knowledge of how the founding principles of the United States have shaped American history and culture for more than two hundred years. Interpreting America’s Historic Places projects may interpret a single historic site or house, a series of sites, an entire neighborhood, a town or community, or a larger geographical region. The place taken as a whole must be significant to American history, and the project must convey its historic importance to visitors. The audience for Interpreting America’s Historic Places projects is the general public. (For other public humanities projects that may not focus so closely on historic places, refer to the implementation grant guidelines for America’s Historical and Cultural Organizations.)

40. Preserving Culture, Heritage and Knowledge while Enhancing Learning

 

    DEADLINE: February 1, 2009

Awards range from $50,000–$1,000,000; up to $40,000 for planning grant.

National Leadership Grants (NLG) support projects that have the potential to elevate museum and library practice. The Institute seeks to advance the ability of museums and libraries to preserve culture, heritage and knowledge while enhancing learning. Successful proposals will have national impact and generate results—new tools, research, models, services, practices, or alliances—that can be widely adapted or replicated to extend the benefit of federal investment.
