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 (email@example.com; 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: firstname.lastname@example.org (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 email@example.com. 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.
Scientific Research Center on Decision Neuroscience and Aging 2014 Grants
For 2014, up to two grants for up to $20,000 will be awarded to provide researchers new to the area with resources for data collection, task development, and/or to add an older adult sample to an existing dataset. The overall goal is to provide the initial resources to support a larger grant application.
To apply for funding, submit a research plan (maximum of three pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org describing the work that these funds would support and why the work could not be otherwise completed without these funds. An itemized one-page budget and CV/biosketch for the principal investigator is also required. Be sure to include a project title and list of team members and affiliations.
Priority will be given to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty. Senior researchers new to the area will also be considered. If you have received funding through any of the of the following, you are not eligible for this award:
Neuroeconomics of Aging (R21) RFA-AG-06-011
Basic Research on Decision Making (R01) RFA-MH-12-130
Social Neuroscience and Neuroeconomics of Aging (R21) PAR-11-336
Social Neuroscience and Neuroeconomics of Aging (R01) PAR-11-337
Evaluation criteria include the use of a variety of measures, sophisticated/appropriate statistical analysis strategies, a comprehensive research team with expertise in all relevant disciplines, and a focus on life course decisions that impact old age relevant outcomes. We are especially interested in funding work on health-related decision making. Priority will be given to proposals that use the funds for data collection rather than salary support.
The primary applicant must be located at a U.S. university or research institute. Funds will be disbursed through a sub-award on our primary National Institute on Aging network grant. Please specify your university’s indirect cost rate in the budget. The $20,000 limit is for direct costs. Indirects will be paid in addition to this amount.
The application deadline for 2014 awards is April 1, 2014. Notification of funding will be sent by May 15, 2014.
