Call for Applications: Donald G. and Darel Stein Travel Award Promoting the Study of Sex Differences in Neuroscience
Application Deadline: April 4, 2014
The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) is pleased to announce a travel award opportunity for neuroscience students to present their research on sex differences in the brain at a scientific conference in 2014. SWHR is accepting applications for travel awards sponsored by Donald G. and Darel Stein in memory of Anne Hammer. Awardees must provide evidence that the poster or oral presentation has been accepted for inclusion in the conference.
Funds can be used to pay for expenses associated with attending a neuroscience-related conference, including an abstract submission fee, society membership and/or conference registration, and travel and/or lodging. The research presented must stem from a current project on sex differences in neuroscience.
Applicants must be enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree program in neuroscience or a closely related field.
Applicants must be listed as a presenting author on the abstract or oral presentation.
The poster or slides must acknowledge funding from SWHR’s Donald G. and Darel Stein Travel Award, including SWHR’s logo.
Required Components of Application (see more detailed instructions below):
A completed application form (signed and dated)
A current CV
A scientific abstract that addresses all of the review criteria in 800 words or less (once the abstract or oral presentation has been accepted by the scientific conference, proof of acceptance must be sent to SWHR in order to be eligible for the funding)
One signed and dated letter of recommendation, on institutional letterhead, from the student’s Laboratory Faculty Advisor/Principal Investigator
Award recipients will receive:
$1,000 for expenses related to attending a neuroscience-related scientific conference to present a poster or deliver an oral presentation
Recognition on SWHR’s website as one of the annual recipients of the Donald G. and Darel Stein Travel Award
Applications will be reviewed by a SWHR Fellowship Selection Committee for their scientific and/or theoretical merit, originality and potential contribution to sex-differences research in neuroscience. Applicants will be ranked according to their ability to do the following:
Identify the problem and describe the theoretical/conceptual basis for the project.
Demonstrate adequacy of the design and explain processes for data collection and analysis.
Describe how the research will advance the field of sex differences in neuroscience.
Use appropriate, high-quality scientific writing
To be considered, applicants must submit the following: a) a completed application form (signed and dated) available here, b) a current CV, and c) a scientific abstract that addresses all of the review criteria in 800 words or less (once the abstract or oral presentation has been accepted by the scientific conference, proof of acceptance must be sent to SWHR in order to be eligible to receive the funding). All of these application materials (other than the letter of recommendation) should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each applicant’s Laboratory Faculty Advisor/Principal Investigator should send one signed and dated letter of recommendation on institutional letterhead to:

Call for Proposals: 2015 McKnight Memory and Gognitive Disorders Awards
Use of Award Funds
We are interested in proposals that address memory or cognition under normal and pathological conditions. This includes proposals that address mechanisms of memory or cognition at the synaptic, cellular, or behavioral level in animals, including humans.We are particularly interested in proposals that incorporate fundamentally new approaches, as well as those that involve human experimentation. Collaborative and cross-disciplinary applications are encouraged.
Projects restricted to the creation of conventional mouse knockouts in candidate disease genes identified by association studies, or to broadly overexpress those genes, are discouraged. In addition, projects to perform genetic interaction screens on disease genes in model organisms (yeast, worm, fly, fish) will not be considered, unless the project includes substantive specific aims that investigate the disease relevance of any new genes so discovered in human or mammalian model systems.
Investigators who are United States citizens or lawful permanent residents conducting research at institutions within the United States are invited to apply. All PIs on the project must be U.S. citizens or have permanent resident status at the time of submission. Applicants must be in tenured or tenure-track faculty positions; research faculty in annually renewable positions are ineligible. Applicants may not be employees of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute or scientists within the intramural program of the National Institutes of Health. Applicants may not hold another McKnight Award that would overlap with the Memory and Cognitive Disorders Award. We are interested in geographic, gender, and racial diversity and we encourage women and minorities, as well as scientists from around the U.S., to apply. Funds may be used toward a variety of research activities, but not the recipient’s salary. The candidate’s other sources of funding will be considered when selecting awards.
You may also email or call the office of The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience (firstname.lastname@example.org; 612-333-4220). The deadline for submission is March 24, 2014. In mid-June, the selection committee will invite a small number of applicants to submit more detailed proposals, which will be due October 6, 2014. Funding begins February 1, 2015. Please email ONE PDF file and include the application form, the 2-page project description, and a 4-page NIH bio sketch to: email@example.com (references may be outside the 2-page limit, but may be no more than two pages). Please do not include a budget. If you do not receive email confirmation of receipt of your LOI within 5 business days, please contact Eileen Maler at 612-333-4220 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Endowment Fund will fund up to four awards, each providing $100,000 per year for three years.
Call for Appplications: F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award
The F.J. McGuigan Dissertation Award provides support for dissertation research oriented toward advancing a unified conception of brain and behavior, primarily — but not exclusively — in the psychophysiological area.
Deadline: June 1, 2014
Sponsor: American Psychological Foundation
APF is seeking applications for the F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award, which supports dissertation research that
addresses any aspect of mental function (e.g., cognition, affect, motivation) and should utilize behavioral and/or
Proposed research should be compatible with Dr. McGuigan’s overall goals and may fall within any area of
contemporary behavioral or brain science (including more recent forms of cognitive psychology).
Amount: One $2,000 award
APF does not allow institutional indirect costs or overhead costs. Applicants may use grant monies for direct administrative costs of their proposed project.
Completed doctoral candidacy, including dissertation approval by doctoral committee, at a regionally accredited institution located in the U.S. or Canada.
Demonstrated commitment to stated program goals (dualistic approaches characteristic of much contemporary cognitive research are specifically ineligible).
IRB approval must be received from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.
