Title: CNH2: Dynamics of Integrated Socio-Environmental Systems (CNH2)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: Required Letter of Intent due 12/17/2018

Amount: CNH2 will support research projects in three different categories:

1. CNH2 Large Research Projects. Awards in this category provide two to five years of support for projects ranging in size from $750,001 to $1,600,000.

2. CNH2 Small Research Projects. Awards in this category provide two to five years of support for projects ranging in size from $150,000 to $750,000.

3. Research Coordination Networks (CNH2-RCNs). A CNH2-RCN may receive support for four or five years of activity at a level not to exceed $500,000-for the total budget over the duration of the project, including both direct and indirect costs.

Description: The CNH2 Program supports research projects that advance basic scientific understanding of integrated socio-environmental systems and the complex interactions (dynamics, processes, and feedbacks) within and among the environmental (biological, physical and chemical) and human ("socio") (economic, social, political, or behavioral) components of such a system. The program seeks proposals that emphasize the truly integrated nature of a socio-environmental system versus two discrete systems (a natural one and a human one) that are coupled. CNH2 projects must explore a connected and integrated socio-environmental system that includes explicit analysis of the processes and dynamics between the environmental and human components of the system. PIs are encouraged to develop proposals that push conceptual boundaries and build new theoretical framings of the understanding of socio-environmental systems. Additionally, we encourage the exploration of multi-scalar dynamics, processes and feedbacks between and within the socio-environmental system.

How to Apply: Notify RGSO of your plan to submit a proposal. The preaward team will work with you to help you complete your proposal, and RGSO will submit your proposal.

Title: Senior Archaeological Research

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 12/20/2020

Amount: Grants are normally two to three years in duration. In the US Government fiscal year 2015 (FY15), the average award (including both direct and indirect costs) was approximately $161,000 with individual grants ranging from $20,000 to $340,000 in size.

Description: The goal of the Archaeology Program is to fund research which furthers anthropologically relevant archaeological knowledge. In accordance with the National Science Foundation’s mission such research has the potential to provide fundamental scientific insight. While within the broad range of “archaeology” the focus is on projects judged to be significant from an anthropological perspective, the Program sets no priorities based on time period, geographic region or specific research topic.

Title: Development of Psychosocial Therapeutic and Preventive Interventions for Mental Disorders (R61/R33- Clinical Trial Required)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

Deadline: 02/15/2019

Amount: Application budgets for the R61 phase and the R33 phase are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum period of the combined R61 and R33 phases is 5 years, with up to 2 years for the R61 phase and up to 3 years for the R33 phase. Applications with a project period less than 5 years are encouraged where feasible.

Description: The purpose is to support the development and testing of innovative psychosocial intervention approaches where the target and/or the intervention strategy is novel. Targets might include, but are not limited to, potentially modifiable behavioral, cognitive, affective and/or interpersonal factors or processes, neural circuits or neural activity subserving specific behaviors or cognitive processes, and/or other neurobiological mechanisms associated with risk for, causation of, or maintenance of a mental disorder. Eligible psychosocial intervention strategies might include in-person or technology-assisted delivery, provided the target and/or the intervention strategy is novel. This FOA supports the development and testing of novel psychosocial interventions, as defined above, as monotherapies or as augmentations to a standard treatment (which may be psychosocial, pharmacological, neuromodulation, biologic, or other somatic modality). Studies must include an examination of a defined intervention target/mechanism based on empirical evidence of disease processes or mechanisms that confer risk, causation, or maintenance of a disorder, and a clear hypothesis about how an intervention directed at changing the target/mechanism can lead to clinical benefit in persons with or at risk for mental disorders.

How to Apply: Notify RGSO of your plan to submit a proposal. The preaward team will work with you to help you complete your proposal, and RGSO will submit your proposal.

Title: Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Admin Supp - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: Applications accepted 8/22/2018 to 8/8/2021

Amount: Limited to no more than the amount of the current parent award, and must reflect actual needs of the proposed project. Direct costs for individual administrative supplements vary from$100,000 depending on the career level of the candidate. Administrative supplements end with the currently funded competitive cycle of the parent grant. Budget requests may also be limited by the awarding IC.

Description: For PIs holding specific types of research grants, funds are available for administrative supplements to improve the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting students, postdocts, and eligible investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research. This supplement opportunity is also available to PIs of research grants who are or become disabled and need additional support to accommodate their disability in order to continue to work on the research project. Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of the original project. This FOA is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary clinical trial. Applicants to this FOA are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.

How to Apply: Notify RGSO of your plan to submit a proposal. The preaward team will work with you to help you complete your proposal, and RGSO will submit your proposal.
