CLIR Mellon Fellowships for Dissertation Research in Original Sources

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is now accepting applications for the 2014 Mellon Fellowships for Dissertation Research in Original Sources.

Program: The purposes of this fellowship program are to:

- help junior scholars in the humanities and related social-science fields gain skill and creativity in developing knowledge from original sources;
- enable dissertation writers to do research wherever relevant sources may be, rather than just where financial support is available;


Program:  The Department of Defense (DoD) seeks proposals to purchase instrumentation in support of research in areas of interest to the DoD, including areas of research supported by the Army Research Office (ARO), the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), hereafter referred to collectively as “the administering agencies.” The research areas of interest to the administering agencies are available on-line at the following addresses:

Army Research Office:

NSF/NIH- Smart and Connected Health

Program:  The goal of the Smart and Connected Health (SCH) Program is to accelerate the development and use of innovative approaches that would support the much needed transformation of healthcare from reactive and hospital-centered to preventive, proactive, evidence-based, person-centered and focused on well-being rather than disease.

NSF- East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI)

Program:  EAPSI awards are available in any area of science and engineering research or education supported by NSF.  EAPSI awards provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering: 1) first-hand research experiences in partner locations, i.e., Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan; 2) an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and 3) an orientation to the society, culture, and language of these locations.

NEH- Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections Grant

Program:  The 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 preventive conservation measures that mitigate deterioration and prolong the useful life of collections.

OAK Ridge Associated Universities Events Sponsorship Program

Program:  The OAK Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) University Partnerships Office is pleased to provide the information below regarding an opportunity only available to ORAU sponsoring and associate universities and branch campuses.

Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Department of Defense Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative (MURI)

Program:  The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U.S. institutions of higher education that is of potential interest to the Department of Defense (DoD). The program is focused on multidisciplinary research efforts where more than one traditional discipline interacts to provide rapid advances in scientific areas of interest to the DoD.
