Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund
The Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund, supports research and demonstration activities that promote the understanding of the relationship between self-identity and academic achievement with an emphasis on children in grade levels K-8. This grant will alternate every other year between an early career psychologist and a graduate student. The 2013 grant will support a graduate student.
Deadline: June 15, 2013
Sponsor: American Psychological Foundation
The Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund was established in 2003 to honor the Clarks and to perpetuate their work as pioneers in understanding the psychological underpinnings of race relations and in addressing social issues such as segregation and injustice.
The Clarks were the first and second African-Americans to receive PhDs from Columbia University. Their famous doll experiments, in which they asked children to express their likes and dislikes about brown-and white-skinned dolls, led the Clarks to conclude that the segregation in schools and society was psychologically damaging to the children. These studies are believed to be the first social science evidence considered as hard fact by the U.S. Supreme court, in Brown v. The Board of Education of Topeka.
The goal is to raise $1 million for this fund. Thanks to the Turrell Fund, the Foundation for Child Development and the many generous individuals, the fund currently holds more than $250,000.
One $10,000 research grant is available.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
Be full-time graduate students in good standing at an accredited university.
Have received IRB approval before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.
Familiarity with the Clarks' work is essential:
a. Kenneth Bancroft Clark, Library of Congress, Manuscript Division, Washington, D.C.
b. Mamie Phipps Clark, Manuscripts Division, New York Public Library, New York.
c. Markowitz, G. & Rosner, D. (1996). Children, Race and Power: Kenneth and Mamie Clark's Northside Center. Charlottesville: University Press of Virginia
Proposal requirements include:
Detailed proposal that makes a case for the need to be addressed; describes the proposed project, methodology and the applicant’s qualifications; and includes a detailed budget and justification.
Two letters of support.

International Association for Dental Research GlaxoSmithKline Innovation in Oral Care Awards
Supported by GlaxoSmithKline
Deadline: December 9, 2013
The Innovation in Oral Care Awards (“Award(s)”) are jointly sponsored by IADR and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), with funding provided exclusively by GSK. The IADR mission is to advance research and increase knowledge for the improvement of oral health worldwide. It does so through its Divisions and Sections as well as in partnership with international dental associations, industry, health agencies, and scientific and educational professional organizations. These innovation awards offer opportunities for investigators to conduct dental research that will have a direct impact on the oral health of the public.
As a leader in consumer oral care, GSK recognizes the need for pioneers to produce innovative technologies that can be used routinely by the public to maintain and improve oral health and quality of life. The Award(s) is intended to help investigators pursue innovative and novel research in oral care, above and beyond the bounds of traditional dental research.
Competitive Award(s), of up to $75,000 each, will be provided to recipients to advance oral care programs directed toward the development of innovative and novel compounds, biomaterials or devices that can be used ultimately at the public health level. Examples of areas of interest could include, but not be limited to:
• inhibition or removal of biofilms etc. adhering to natural or artificial surfaces,
• modification of those surfaces to inhibit biofilms and other deposits, stains and odors,
• adhesives for removable prosthetic devices,
• inhibition of tooth surface loss and gingival recession, and amelioration of their effects, and
• counteracting the oral effects of dry mouth, systemic illness, hormonal disturbances or physiological aging.
The Award(s) will be provided in the form of an unrestricted research grant which carries no obligation to the recipient’s organization for licensure, patenting, or transfer confidential information, although GSK may discuss the possibility of future collaboration with some applicants.
• The principal investigator listed in the application must be a current member of, or at the time of submission have made bona fide application to, IADR.
• To fulfill the quest for innovation, proposals should be collaboratively sponsored by at least one researcher whose principal expertise is in an area of biotechnology other than a dental science.
• The intent is to encourage collaboration with researchers from outside the dental institution; nevertheless, the most important criterion involves the innovative nature of the proposed research.
• Applicants should possess advanced degrees and must hold an affiliation with an academic center, not-for-profit institution, or for-profit entities such as biotechnology start-up companies.
• Letters of support from the principal investigator’s (PI) institution are required and should describe the nature of the PI’s appointment and commitments to the PI, such as lab and office space, technical assistance or travel funds.
