Other Funding Opportunities

  • July 7, 2004 - The National Institute on Aging is seeking small grant applications to address sociobehavioral data analysis and archiving in aging.

  • June 2, 2004 - Particulate Matter Research Centers to be Funded by
    EPA. Deadline for Research Applications: August 31, 2004
  • To protect people from the harmful effects of air pollution, EPA is seeking proposals for research on airborne particulate matter (PM) . The new research will improve EPA’s understanding of how PM affects human health by focusing on what makes people susceptible to PM’s effects, how PM causes adverse effects , exposure-response relationships, methods that more closely identify the originating sources of air particles, and linking health effects with PM sources and components. EPA seeks an integrated research approach that addresses the entire spectrum from particle sources to health effects. While the United States has made significant progress over the last 40 years in reducing air pollution, substantial concern remains about PM, which is associated with hospitalization for respiratory or cardiovascular diseases, and moderate exacerbation of respiratory diseases or decreases in lung function. In 1999, EPA awarded five-year grants to five PM research centers that are now completing their last year of work. This new competition is open to both new applicants and existing PM research centers. The research centers present an opportunity for investigators from different disciplines to work together on large problems that cannot be addressed by a single project. Awards will be made for a total of $40 million through EPA’s Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program. Institutions of higher education, not-for-profit U.S. institutions; and tribal, state and local governments are eligible to apply. EPA expects to make awards for up to five centers that will be funded for up to five years. Research applications must be received by August 31, 2004. For more information, see: http://es.epa.gov/ncer/rfa/2004/2004_pm_research.html. For more information about the EPA STAR program, see: http://es.epa.gov/ncer/.
