NEH – Public Humanities Projects

Date Due: 1/10/18 for projects beginning August 2018, updated guidelines will be posted at least two months in advance

Amount: $40,000 (planning), $75,000 (exceptionally ambitious project planning), $50,000 to $400,000 (implementation)

Summary: Public Humanities Projects grants support projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences. Projects must engage humanities scholarship to illuminate significant themes in disciplines such as history, literature, ethics, and art, or to address challenging issues in contemporary life. NEH encourages projects that involve members of the public in collaboration with humanities scholars or that invite contributions from the community in the development and delivery of humanities programming. The grant program supports a variety of forms of audience engagement: 1) community conversations, 2) exhibitions, 3) historic places.

NSF – Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL)

Date Due: 11/07/18, 11/06/19

Amount: various from $150,000 for one year to up to $5M for up to 5 years

Summary: The Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program seeks to advance new approaches to and evidence-based understanding of the design and development of STEM learning in informal environments for public and professional audiences; provide multiple pathways for broadening access to and engagement in STEM learning experiences; advance innovative research on and assessment of STEM learning in informal environments; and develop understandings of deeper learning by participants (National Resource Council, 2012). To achieve the greatest return on its investments, the AISL program encourages projects that will “raise the bar” in the fields of informal STEM education. It invests in projects that advance the leading edge of the field and address its most critical challenges

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) – Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health – 2018 not announced yet

Date Due: 03/10/17 (dates for 2018 not announced yet)

Amount: $250,000

Summary: Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health (P4A) was created to help build the evidence base for policies that can help build a Culture of Health. P4A seeks to engage long-standing health care, mental and behavioral health, and public health researchers, as well as experts in areas that we recognize have strong influence on health, well-being and equity—such as labor, criminal justice, education, transportation, housing, and the built environment.

The research funded under this call for proposals (CFP) should help fill significant gaps in our knowledge about what policies can serve as positive drivers of change, including how the social determinants of health can be used to achieve improvements in population health, well-being, and equity. Additional information on this program can be found at policiesforaction.org.

NSF — Science, Technology, and Society (STS)

Date Due: 08/03/18, annually thereafter; 02/02/18, annually thereafter

Amount: $400,000

Summary: STS research focuses on the intellectual, material, and social facets of STEM. Such research endeavors to understand how scientific knowledge is produced and sanctioned, and how it is challenged and changes. It explores broader societal ramifications and underlying presuppositions. STS research studies how materials, devices, and techniques are designed and developed; how and by whom they are diffused, used, adapted, and rejected; how they are affected by social and cultural environments; and how they influence quality of life, culture, and society. STS research explores how socio-cultural values are embedded in science and technology, and how issues of governance and equity co-evolve with the development and use of scientific knowledge and technological artifacts. The STS program supports proposals across the broad spectrum of STS research areas, topics, and approaches. Examples include, but are by no means limited to:

1. Societal aspects of emerging high-tech technologies and low-tech technologies.

2. Issues relating to equity, ethics, governance, sustainability, public engagement, user-centeredness, and inclusiveness.

3. Integration of traditional STS approaches with innovative perspectives from the arts or humanities.

4. Ethical, policy, and cultural issues regarding big data, surveillance and privacy in an increasingly networked world, and

5. The science of broadening participation in STEM disciplines.

~ Amount is $400,000 (total direct costs) over 2 to 3 years
