Title: Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation  (LSAMP)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 11/03/2017

Amount: Not specified

Description: The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is an alliance-based program. The program's theory is based on the Tinto model for student retention. The overall goal of the program is to assist universities and colleges in diversifying the nation's science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce by increasing the number of STEM baccalaureate and graduate degrees awarded to populations historically underrepresented in these disciplines: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders.

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 to NSF.

Title: Next Generation Humanities PhD Implementation Grants

Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

Deadline: 11/29/2017

Amount: $350,000

Description: Next Generation Humanities PhD Implementation Grants support universities in instituting wide-ranging changes in humanities doctoral programs. Humanities knowledge and methods can make an even more substantial impact on society if students are able to translate what they learn in doctoral programs into a multitude of careers. Next Generation PhD Implementation Grants are designed to produce plans that will transform scholarly preparation in the humanities at the doctoral level. Students will be prepared to undertake various kinds of careers, and humanities PhD programs will increase their relevance for the twenty-first century.

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 to NEH.

Title: Archaeology and Archaeometry

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 12/01/2017 – for Archaeometry proposals

Amount: Awards (including indirect costs) are normally two to three years in duration and in FY15 ranged from $116,000 to $277,000 in size. The average award was $222,000.

Description: The Archaeology Program administers an annual “archaeometry” competition with a target date of December 1. The goal is to fund projects either to develop/refine anthropologically relevant archaeometric techniques and/or support laboratories which provide relevant services. Examples of the former include the development of methods to identify specific types of organic residues on ceramics or development of field applicable analytic techniques. Service laboratories which, for example provide dating trace element, isotopic and dendrochronological analyses illustrate the latter. Projects which apply standard archaeometic techniques with the goal to answer specific archaeological questions should be submitted to the “senior” archaeology competition. Data archives, in common with archaeometric laboratories, function to strengthen basic archaeological infrastructure. Therefore, Principal Investigators may submit proposals through the archaeometry competition to assist in meeting this goal. Proposals are evaluated by both ad hoc reviewers and a panel composed of individuals who combine both archaeological and archaeometric expertise.

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 to NSF.

Deadline: 12/05/2017

Amount: $350,000

Description: Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections (SCHC) helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations by supporting sustainable conservation measures that mitigate deterioration, prolong the useful life of collections, and support institutional resilience: the ability to anticipate and respond to natural and man-made disasters.

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 to NEH.

Title: Scholarly editions and translations grants

Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

Deadline: 12/06/2017

Amount: $100,000

Description: Scholarly Editions and Translations grants support the preparation of editions and translations of pre-existing texts of value to the humanities that are currently inaccessible or available in inadequate editions. Typically, the texts and documents are significant literary, philosophical, and historical materials; but other types of work, such as musical notation, are also eligible.

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 to NEH.
