The Grants Team is ready to assist you.
U.S. Department of Energy; National Energy Technology Laboratory University Turbine Systems Research proposals due March 4, 2019
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support university-based research and development projects that address and resolve scientific challenges and applied engineering technology issues associated with advancing the performance and efficiency of combustion turbines in combined cycle applications (e.g., IGCC/NGCC) in fossil fuel power generation.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; National Institutes of Health releases Research Enhancement Award Program for Health Professional Schools and Graduate Schools funding opportunity
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to stimulate basic and clinical research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation’s research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. Research Enhancement Award Program (REAP) grants create opportunities for scientists and health professional institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs to contribute to the Nation’s biomedical and behavioral research effort.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; National Institutes of Health Laboratories for Early Clinical Evaluation of Pharmacotherapies for Substance Use Disorders proposals due March 15, 2019
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support the creation of Laboratories with expertise and resources and to conduct early clinical evaluation of potential pharmacotherapies for Substance Use Disorders (SUDs). The goal is to accelerate the clinical development of medications to treat SUDs by establishing Laboratories possessing the highest expertise and sufficient resources to timely and efficiently conducting Food and Drug Administration-defined Phase 1 and/or Phase 2 clinical trials of new or repurposed compounds for SUDs indications.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; National Institutes of Health HEALthy Brain and Child Development Study proposals due March 25, 2019
This funding opportunity solicits applications for planning and initial development of a large scale multi-site research study to prospectively examine human brain, cognitive, behavioral, social, and emotional development beginning prenatally through childhood (e.g., age 9-10), and the long-term impacts of pre/postnatal drug (expected oversampling for opioid prenatal exposures) and adverse environmental exposures on brain and behavioral health and risk for substance use and mental disorders. In addition to planning and testing the feasibility of study designs, awardees will be expected to participate in 2-3 grantee meetings to share lessons learned and to begin to form collaborations needed to establish the network of sites that will conduct this study.
National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teachers Proposals due February 21, 2019
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support a series of one-week workshops for K-12 educators across the nation that enhance and strengthen humanities teaching at the K-12 level. The program defines a landmark as a site of historic importance within the U.S. that offers educators a unique and compelling opportunity to deepen and expand their knowledge of the diverse histories, cultures, traditions, languages, and perspectives of the American people.
