Arthritis Foundation Innovative Research Grant
$100,000 per year up to 2 years
The purpose of the Arthritis Foundation's Innovative Research Grant (IRG) initiative is to broaden the base of inquiry in fundamental biomedical science, clinical science and bio-behavioral research with relevance to osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and juvenile arthritis (JA). The ultimate goal of the program is to improve the lives of people touched by these diseases. We encourage applications for research proposals that involve an especially high degree of innovation and novelty and therefore, require a preliminary test of feasibility.
Call for Appplications: Sloan Foundation Funded Science Festival Program
The Science Festival Alliance (SFA) is currently seeking applications from new science festival initiatives in US communities with a relatively small resource base interested in receiving matching funding, mentoring, and travel support. The support is available thanks to the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
Application deadline: Friday, June 21, 2013
Award recipients will receive:
• One time challenge grant intended to jump-start a new or significantly expanded, and annually recurring, festival initiative. Challenge grants will match up to $10,000 in funds raised specifically for a festival initiative.
• Mentoring support from established science festival initiatives.
• Travel support that will provide reimbursement for: 1) a visit to a science festival in action, and 2) attendance at the International Public Science Events Conference, tentatively scheduled for February, 2014.
By December 1, 2014 award recipients will be expected to:
• Launch a recurring (preferably annual) festival initiative in the US with a primary focus on science, technology, engineering, and/or math. The festival initiative must be either new or a substantial expansion of a smaller existing annual event. The initiative may be led by a single organization, but it must be collaborative in nature, with mechanisms in place for programming involvement by other individuals and groups as appropriate. The festival must serve a region or community with a relatively small resource (described further below).
• Hold a first set of public events. The festival initiative should seek to serve a meaningful critical mass of attendees as appropriate to the region served and overall budget for the initiative. Attendance goals for this first event may shift in the course of festival planning, but must not be lower than 2,000.
• Travel to an existing science festival in session for observation, and attend a professional meeting related to science festivals.
• Participate in the development of “how-to” resources to assist future new science festival initiatives.
• Appropriately recognize challenge grant funding support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
• Complete on-time reports to the Science Festival Alliance on activity related to this program.
• Participate in the Science Festival Alliance network.
What is meant by a community with a “relatively small resource base:”
• A region with relatively low funding resources, such that a first year budget for a festival would not be expected to exceed $60,000; and/or,
• A region with relatively low levels of STEM research activity and few formal and informal education institutions; and/or,
• A region with a relatively small population base.
• Applications in the form of a single PDF document must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business, Friday, June 21.
• If you have questions about this specific application process, or science festivals generally, you are encouraged to contact the Science Festival Alliance at any point in the process.
• Applications will be reviewed by a committee assembled by the Science Festival Alliance. This committee will be asked to keep application details confidential.
• The most promising candidates will be contacted for phone interviews in June or July of 2013, and may be asked to supply additional written material prior to the determination of up to 12 award recipients.
• All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by no later than August 30, 2013.
