Funding opportunity: The Self, Motivation & Virtue Project

Marquette University, with a generous grant from the Templeton Religion Trust, has announced a new research initiative to promote collaboration between scientists and humanities scholars on the topics of the self, motivation, and virtue. Approximately ten research proposals of $190,000 each will be funded through this initiative.

Successful teams will be comprised of at least one humanities scholar and one scientist who are fully and equally invested in the research project from its inception to its completion. The aim of the program is to encourage awardees to think outside of their own disciplinary perspectives, and to broaden their research horizons in ways conducive to creative collaborations and results.  Research collaborations between younger and more established scholars are especially encouraged.

Awards are intended to support research from September 1, 2015 through May 31, 2017 (two academic years and one summer).

More information, the full request for proposals and application instructions are available on the Self, Motivation & Virtue Project website. Letters of intent are due no later than November 15, 2014, and must be submitted online. Full proposals are accepted by invitation only, and will be due no later than June 1, 2015. Contact smvproject@marquette.edu with questions about the program.

NCAA, DoD extend deadline to request information on concussion education research grant

NCAA-DOD3Earlier this month, we told you about the Mind Matters Challenge, an upcoming funding opportunity offered through an alliance between the NCAA and the U.S. Department of Defense.

The program will provide faculty in science, art, marketing and education fields with grants of up to $400,000 for research on ways to change the culture surrounding concussion reporting and treatment.

The NCAA is currently requesting contact information for university faculty who wish to be notified when the grant program officially launches this fall. Initially, organizers had asked for researcher contact information by Sept. 15, but the deadline has been extended to Oct. 15.

Click here to fill out a short form requesting information on the Mind Matters Challenge.

Funding opportunity: NCAA-U.S. Department of Defense Mind Matters Challenge

NCAA-DOD

Click the image to view a larger version.

The NCAA and the U.S. Department of Defense have joined forces to carry out a research and awareness program aimed at enhancing the safety of student-athletes and service members.  The partnership is intended to improve scientific understanding of concussions and other head injuries, and to promote changes in the culture surrounding reporting and management of concussions.

As part of the program, the NCAA has committed $4 million for the Mind Matters Challenge — a grant program to support research on improving the effectiveness of concussion education programs delivered to student-athletes, coaches, soldiers and other at-risk populations.

“Culturally, self-reporting head injuries or reporting others who display head injury symptoms is seen by some as a sign of weakness,” said NCAA Chief Medical Officer Brian Hainline.  “We hope to change that by arming physicians and scientists with better clinical data, and by creating educational programs to increase understanding of the importance of diagnostics for immediate action and tracking for follow-up treatment.”

The NCAA has asked for Baylor’s help in identifying members of our faculty with an interest in topics related to student-athlete, college student, or military service member safety or well-being to apply for this funding opportunity.  Specifically, the program targets individuals in the following disciplines:

  • Marketing
  • Communications
  • Education
  • Film/Theater
  • Neurology
  • Mental Health
  • Public Health
  • Psychology/Behavioral Studies
  • Sports Medicine/Sport and Exercise Science
  • Other relevant researchers/clinicians

Faculty members in these disciplines who may be interested in this program are asked to contact Baylor’s faculty athletic representative, Jeremy Counseller, prior to Sept. 15.

Limited submission funding opportunity: NEH Summer Stipends

Through its Summer Stipends program, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports individuals pursuing advanced research of value to humanities scholars, general audiences or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions or other scholarly materials. Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars and support continuous, full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months during summer 2015.

Organizations are limited in the number of proposals they may submit to the NEH, so the OVPR holds an internal competition to determine which Baylor applications will go forward. Internal letters of intent are due to the OVPR by Aug. 19. Full proposals for the selected projects are due to the NEH by Sept. 30, 2014.

Click here for more information and application instructions for the internal competition. You may also click here to view information about the program from the NEH.
