American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) Research Grant Funding Opportunities – Deadline 9/27

ABTA has a number of funding opportunities, with a deadline to apply of September 27th. See below and visit their website for more information.

ABTA Research Collaboration (ARC) Grant Program

ARC Grants are two year, $200,000 grants intended to promote team science in a way that will streamline and accelerate progress and affect the desired change in clinical outcome for brain tumors. Research projects supported under this mechanism must be conducted by a team of at least two co-principal investigators (Co-PI’s) from distinct institutions. The research project should be multi-disciplinary in that it incorporates multiple components such as basic, translational, clinical and epidemiological research.

The ARC Grant Program requires a Letter of Intent (LOI).  The ABTA Grant Application Portal is accepting these LOIs from August 16, 2017 to September 27, 2017 at noon Central Time.

ARC research projects are pre-screened using the LOI mechanism.  Invitations and instructions to submit a complete proposal will be extended by email in early December, with an application due date of mid to late January.

ABTA Basic Research Fellowship Program

Basic Research Fellowship Grants are two year, $100,000 grants supporting postdoctoral fellows conducting brain tumor research. Fellows must include a lead mentor who currently conducts brain tumor research at the same academic institution in an effort to provide research, scientific management and other leadership guidance necessary to foster the applicant’s career advancement.

The ABTA Grant Application Portal is accepting Basic Research Fellowship LOIs from August 16, 2017 to September 27, 2017 at noon Central Time.

Fellowship research projects are pre-screened using the LOI mechanism.  Invitations and instructions to submit a complete proposal will be extended by email in early December, with an application due date of mid to late January.

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

 

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) offers fully funded fellowships for research in Japan in all fields of research: life and physical sciences, social sciences, humanities. Late-semester/quarter doctoral students, postdocs, faculty, all welcome. Please join us at lunch time on UCLA’s campus on Thursday, October 26, 2017, to learn more about fellowships and connect with members of the research community.

UCLA campus maps and directions can be found here.  The closest parking structure is Structure 5 or 3, although Structure 5 usually fills up quickly with UCLA employees.  There are pay stations in both these structures (i.e., you may pay by the hour).

GPS Science Policy Fellows Program

GPS Science Policy Fellows Program – Deadline to apply 9/8!

Want $1000 to explore the policy implications of your research?

Drawing applicants from UC San Diego’s STEM related programs, each year the School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) selects three doctoral students from across campus and pairs them with a GPS faculty advisor to explore the policy implications of their dissertation research.

Program Description

Selected fellows are assigned a GPS faculty member with expertise in the relevant public policy sector.  The advisors attend program events during the academic year with the fellow and are available for research consultation, meeting on average once a month.  The outcome of the program is a public presentation on the policy implications of the fellow’s thesis research and could also include a publication co-authored with the GPS advisor, a submitted policy brief, or a new dissertation chapter.  The fellowship is 1-2 years, depending on the project.  Each fellow will receive $1,000 (per year) for policy-relevant research/travel expenses.

Fellows are required to attend the program’s four events:

  1. October orientation meeting to discuss research and each fellow’s program goals.
  2. Fall quarter Science-Policy Roundtable on a current topic being researched by UCSD faculty that combines science and policy.
  3. Winter quarter career panel discussion addressing aspects of the STEM-policy interface and how to establish a successful career in that space.
  4. Spring quarter public research presentations by the fellows.

 

Eligibility

Candidates must be a PhD student in a STEM field at UC San Diego.

Candidates must secure the approval of their departmental advisor.

Application – DUE September 8, 2017
