The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood is an incubator of promising research and development projects that appear likely to improve the welfare of young children, from infancy through 7 years, in the United States. Welfare is broadly defined to include physical and mental health, safety, nutrition, education, play, familial support, acculturation, societal integration and childcare.  Grants are only made if a successful project outcome will likely be of significant interest to other professionals, within the grantee's field of endeavor, and would have a direct benefit and potential national application. The Foundation's goal is to provide  seed money  to implement those imaginative proposals that exhibit the greatest chance of improving the lives of young children,  on a national scale . Because of the Foundation's limited funding capability, it seeks to maximize a grant's potential impact. The Foundation provides funding in the following areas:
  • Early Childhood Welfare: Children can only reach their full potential when all aspects of their intellectual, emotional and physical development are optimally supported. Providing a safe and nurturing environment is essential as is imparting the skills of social living in a culturally diverse world. Therefore, the Foundation supports projects that seek to perfect child rearing practices and to identify models that can provide creative, caring environments in which all young children thrive.
  • Early Childhood Education and Play: Research shows that children need to be stimulated as well as nurtured, early in life, if they are to succeed in school, work and life. That preparation relates to every aspect of a child's development, from birth to age seven, and everywhere a child learns - at home, in childcare settings and in preschool. We seek to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning, through the development of innovative curricula and research based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments.
  • Parenting Education: To help parents create nurturing environments for their children, we support programs that teach parents about developmental psychology, cultural child rearing differences, pedagogy, issues of health, prenatal care and diet, as well as programs which provide both cognitive and emotional support to parents.

Facebook is issuing a call for academic research proposals as part of its  pledge  to contribute $1 million to research that addresses the economic impact of digital technologies, including new tools that enable commercial opportunities. As progress in digital technology and the ongoing development of digital platforms continue to reshape the global economy, they have also contributed to the rise of new tools for conducting business in unprecedented ways. Many of these digital tools have empowered entrepreneurs and small and midsize businesses (SMBs) in particular to engage in commercial opportunities and drive growth where they may not have otherwise had access, for example, through digital payments, online consumer research, and data-driven advertising. Moreover, when growth is challenged by economic contraction or other disruptive circumstances (such as COVID-19), digital technologies may offer businesses the means to quickly adjust their practices, enabling them to minimize adverse impacts and remain resilient.

Facebook is especially interested in supporting projects that address the economic consequences and implications of developing digital technologies for small businesses. Topics of interest for this request for proposals (RFP) include, but are not limited to, measuring new types of economic impact - for example, assessing the implications of digital technologies for growth, resilience under challenging circumstances, inclusion of marginalized groups, efficiency of payment systems, or other business outcomes.  Scholars may consider focusing their research on the following topics, though creative approaches beyond these areas are also encouraged:
  • Agile business strategies enabled by data-driven advertising and other digital technologies 
  • The impact of digital advertising on online platforms
  • Understanding the relationship between, and influence of, data-driven advertising on new market entrants and novel product categories
  • The value of data-driven advertising with regard to consumers
FAS/SEAS/OSP Deadline: April 29, 2020

Research with no relevance to understanding human problems will not be supported, nor will proposals to investigate urgent social problems where the foundation cannot be assured that useful, sound research can be done. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.

The National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research is partnering with the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to offer a new research funding opportunity to study the impact of gun policy on law-abiding gun users. Decisions about gun laws and programs in the United States must consider the interests of gun owners as well as potential reductions in firearms violence or suicide the policies offer. Currently, however, there are few good measures of the harms or benefits to legal gun owners. To address the need for better information, the National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research is offering a special call for proposals to develop an objective method for estimating the impact of gun policy on the interests of gun owners. 

The Collaborative is seeking proposals for a white paper describing a rigorous method for evaluating the benefits or harms gun policies impose on gun owners and users. The concept outlined in the white paper will ideally provide guidance for the development of a scale or measurement approach that could be used to quantify the impact of programs or policies related to gun use or possession on the interests of gun owners. The concept paper may also lead to a solicitation funding full development of the proposed measurement approach.

The Public Engagement Programs are intended to celebrate and empower early-career faculty in the humanities who embrace public engagement as part of their scholarly vocation. A nominee can propose to use the funds for nearly any ambitious public-facing project, new or ongoing, drawing on the humanities. Projects should be designed primarily to engage one or more specific publics beyond the academy, and they should benefit in a distinctive way from the involvement of a scholar. 

The Public Engagement Fellowship is for projects far enough into development or execution to present specific, compelling evidence that they will successfully engage the intended public. For the strongest Fellowship proposals, both the overall strategy and the practical plan to implement the project will be deeply developed, relationships with key collaborators will be in place, and connections with the intended public will have been cultivated. In some cases, the nominee and collaborators may have tested the idea in a pilot, or the project itself may already be underway. 

To be eligible, nominees must be full-time faculty in a humanities field at an accredited US institution of higher learning as of September 2020; they must be early-career, which the Foundation defines as pre-tenure, untenured, or having received tenure in the last five years. Please note, while the Whiting Foundation lists adjunct faculty as eligible candidates, Harvard nominees must have principal investigator rights, thus in most cases adjunct faculty would not be eligible.

Please Note: This is a limited submission opportunity. Harvard may nominate one faculty member for the Fellowship program and one faculty member for the Seed Grant program. Please contact Erin Hale at erin_hale@fas.harvard.edu  if you are interested in this opportunity.

Projects should be designed primarily to engage one or more specific publics beyond the academy, and they should benefit in a distinctive way from the involvement of a scholar. 

The Public Engagement Seed Grant  supports projects at a somewhat early stage of  development, before the nominee has been able to establish a specifi c track record  of success for the proposed public  facing work. It is not, however, designed for projects starting entirely  from scratch: nominees should have fleshed out a compelling vision, including a clear sense of whose  collaboration will be required a nd the ultimate scope and outcomes. They should also have articulated  specific short - term next steps required to advance the project and understand the resources required to  complete them. The Foundation anticipates that a recipient might use the grant, for example, to  test the project on a  smaller scale or to engage deeply  in planning  with collaborators or the intended public.

From 1665 to 1666, the Great Plague of London swept across England, likely taking the lives of over 100,000 people. Though the germ theory of disease would not be formulated until the 1860s, the English public engaged in "social distancing" behaviors to avoid illness, leading to the closure of universities. Among the displaced was a young Isaac Newton, still a student at Trinity College in Cambridge. During the ensuing year of isolated study and reflection, Newton developed the basis for calculus, as well as foundational theories in gravitation, motion, and optics. Separated from the Great Plague by 350 years, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to similar health responses among the general public and scientific community, forcing the closure of laboratories and universities throughout the world and slowing scientific progress across theoretical and empirical domains. To help stimulate scientific thought and encourage efforts and advancements in the spirit of Sir Isaac, the Basic Research Office in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announces the Newton Award for Transformative Ideas during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This award will be presented to a single investigator or team of up to two investigators that develops a "transformative idea" to resolve challenges, advance frontiers, and set new paradigms in areas of immense potential benefit to DoD and the nation at large. Proposals should fall within the scope of fields consistent with DoD basic research funding priorities, including but not limited to artificial intelligence/machine learning and autonomy, communications and networks, engineering, materials science, mathematics, microelectronics, physics, quantum science and computing, social and cognitive sciences, synthetic biology and biotechnology. Interdisciplinary and collaborative proposals by up to two investigators are encouraged as necessary. Proposals should aim to produce novel conceptual frameworks or theory-based approaches that present disruptive ways of thinking about fundamental scientific problems that have evaded resolution, propose new, paradigm-shifting scientific directions, and/or address fundamental and important questions that are argued to be undervalued by the scientific community. Approaches can include analytical reasoning, calculations, simulations, and thought experiments. While data collection and production are therefore allowed, all supporting data should be generated without the use of laboratory-based experimentation or instrumentation. Given the novelty of and circumstances surrounding this one-time FOA, the objective of this program is to generate proposals that are equally novel and pioneering. Therefore, this FOA should be viewed as an opportunity to propose work outside the bounds of traditional proposals.
Up to 10 awards are anticipated.

NEH Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project at any stage of development for a period of two months. Summer Stipends normally support work carried out during the summer months, but arrangements can be made for other times of the year. Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions. Projects must incorporate analysis and not result solely in the collection of data. NEH funds may support recipients' compensation, travel, and other costs related to the proposed scholarly research. 

Please Note:  This is a limited submission opportunity. Harvard may put forward two nominees for this program. Please submit an application  here  to be considered for nomination.

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to publish documentary editions of historical records. Projects may focus on broad historical movements in U.S. history, such as politics, law (including the social and cultural history of the law), social reform, business, military, the arts, and other aspects of the national experience, or may be centered on the papers of major figures from American history. Whether conceived as a thematic or a biographical edition, the historical value of the records and their expected usefulness to broad audiences must justify the costs of the project.  The Commission is especially interested in projects to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. The Commission encourages applications that use collections to examine the ideals behind the founding of the United States and the continual interpretation and debate over those ideals over the past 250 years. The Commission welcomes projects that engage the public, expand civic education, and promote understanding of the nation's history, democracy, and culture from the founding era to the present day.

All new projects (those which have never received NHPRC funding) must have definitive plans for publishing and preserving a digital edition which provides online access to a searchable, fully-transcribed and annotated collection of documents. New projects may also prepare print editions (including ebooks and searchable PDFs posted online) as part of their overall publishing plan, but the contents of those volumes must be published in a fully-searchable digital edition within a reasonable period of time following print publication. The NHPRC encourages projects to provide free public access to online editions. Projects that do not have definitive plans for digital dissemination and preservation in place at the time of application will not be considered.

The Civic Innovation Challenge (CIVIC) is a research and action competition in the Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC) domain designed to build a more cohesive research-to-innovation pipeline and foster a collaborative spirit. Building on the NSF S&CC program and the extensive S&CC ecosystem, CIVIC aims to accelerate the impact of S&CC research, and deepen cooperation and information sharing across sectors and regions. CIVIC will lay a foundation for a broader and more fluid exchange of research interests and civic priorities that will create new instances of collaboration and introduce new areas of technical and social scientific discovery. CIVIC will fund projects that can produce significant community impact within 12 months (following a four-month planning phase) - in contrast to many community-university partnerships that take years to provide tangible benefits to communities - and have the potential for lasting impact beyond the period of the CIVIC award.

CIVIC introduces several unique features that differentiate it from the NSF S&CC program: (1) CIVIC flips the community-university dynamic, asking communities to identify civic priorities ripe for innovation and then to partner with researchers to address those priorities; (2) CIVIC focuses on research that is ready for piloting in and with communities on a short timescale, where real-world impact can be evaluated within 12 months; (3) CIVIC requires the inclusion of civic partners in the core project team, to emphasize civic engagement; and (4) CIVIC organizes and fosters "communities of practice" around high-need problem areas that allow for meaningful knowledge sharing and cross-site collaboration during both pre-development and piloting. For purposes of clarity, civic partners may include local, state, or tribal government officials; non-profit representatives; community organizers or advocates; community service providers; and/or others working to improve their communities. CIVIC is organized as a two-stage competition with two tracks centered around the following topic areas:
  • Track A. Communities and Mobility: Offering Better Mobility Options to Solve the Spatial Mismatch Between Housing Affordability and Jobs; and
  • Track B. Resilience to Natural Disasters: Equipping Communities for Greater Preparedness and Resilience to Natural Disasters.
In the first stage (Stage 1), up to 12 awards per track will be made for Planning Grants - each with a budget of up to $50,000 for four months to undertake pre-development activities, including solidifying the team, maturing the project plans, and preparing to submit a well-developed full proposal for Stage 2. Only awardees of Stage 1 will be eligible to submit proposals for Stage 2. In the second stage (Stage 2), up to four teams per track will be selected from Stage 1 award recipients to receive a full award- each with a budget of up to $1,000,000 for up to 12 months to execute and evaluate their research-centered pilot projects.

This solicitation supports fundamental research to enable transformative change in our ability to detect, disrupt and disable illicit supply networks that traffic in persons, and tangible and virtual goods. These transformations will require well-coordinated, multi-disciplinary approaches that complement long-standing law-enforcement, victim-centric and trafficking domain-focused research efforts with fundamental, innovative, and high-risk research that draws from multiple domains of engineering, computer and information science, and the social, behavioral and economic sciences. Trafficking networks comprise complex, interconnected collections of entities, sometimes under centralized control but with decentralized information sharing. Research proposals should take a holistic, system-focused approach to understanding the operations and dynamics of illicit supply networks, including such issues as mapping illicit supply chains, characterizing their elements and their use of communications, transportation, financial infrastructures; understanding geospatial data patterns and networks of transactions that provide actionable insight into their activity; understanding how illicit production co-mingles with legal production in commercial supply chains and the underlying value chain that creates wealth through illicit activities; and how individuals are incentivized and/or exploited to participate in these activities. Major goals of NSF's D-ISN include:
  • Improve understanding of the operations of illicit supply networks and strengthen the ability to detect, disrupt, and dismantle them. 
  • Enhance research communities that effectively integrate operational, computational, social, cultural and economic expertise to provide methods and strategies to combat this complex and elusive global security challenge.
  • Catalyze game-changing technological innovations that can improve discovery and traceability of illicitly sourced products and illicitly sourced labor inputs to products.
  • Provide research outcomes that inform U.S. national security, law enforcement and economic development needs and policies.
This solicitation is the first of what is envisioned to be a three-year program to support the research needed to inform the economy, security, and resilience of the Nation and the world in responding to the global threat posed by illicit supply networks. The solicitation calls for fundamental research across engineering, computer and information science, and social science with two proposal submission tracks. Track 1 research proposals should address at least one or more of the five focus domain areas listed in the solicitation. Under Track 2, D-ISN calls for proposals for planning grants to support activities leading to convergence research team formation and capacity-building within the research communities interested in addressing larger-scope challenges in the future.
