Funder and Funding News: Grants and Fellowships

In this occasional news bite, the Office of College Grants features funder and funding insights pertinent to those engaged in both fellowship and grant seeking.

  • In "Think Strategically" - learn how those in the humanities and humanistic social sciences seeking future sabbatical funding might make use of an aspect of the NEH Fellowship program to advantage.
  • Learn about changes in social science research funding opps at the NSF, and how certain classic SBE funding opps have been strategically restructured and renamed, yet which have kept a similar focus to the originals.
  • Interested in conducting research in an international setting? Reacquaint yourself with funding opportunities at the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC).
  • And, trying to find sources of funding for research expenses? Scholars in any discipline can benefit from the APS Franklin Research Grant - two F&M faculty won awards in the last competition.

And, speaking of "Grant Seeking" - Grant, our tortoise, is seeking further understanding. Read to the bottom to find what has piqued Grant's interest now, and to find what's coming up next in our Fall 2019 College Grants Newsletter.

Grant, the tortoise, has been wandering the campus of late trying to understand the pronunciation of some of F&M's building names. He's perplexed.

So, stay tuned for our Fall 2019 College Grants Newsletter. Not only will Grant share with readers what he's learned through the course of his most recent set of "explores," and help demystify this bit of local lore for us all, but we will feature news of folks who recently received major funding, details about the planned activities of the 2019-20 OCG Faculty Fellow, Dan Ardia (Biology), and learn about other initiatives the Office of College Grants is supporting on campus.
