Title: Social and Behavioral Interventions to Increase Solid Organ Donation (HRSA-14-014)

Sponsor: Health Resources and Services Administration

Deadline: 10/30/2013

Amount: $350,000/3 years

Description/Eligibility: The overall goal of this grant program is to reduce the gap between the demand for organ transplants and the supply of organs from deceased donors by identifying successful strategies that can serve as model interventions to increase deceased organ donation registration or family consent. This program will support sound applied research efforts to test the effectiveness of strategies to increase, and improve understanding of how to increase: 1) individual commitment to be a deceased organ donor and documentation of that commitment; 2) consent of family (or others authorized to consent) for organ donation for a deceased relative; 3) commitment of parents/legal guardians to authorize organ donation for a minor child in the event of the child’s death.

Title: Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections (CFDA 45.149)

Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

Deadline: 11/4/2013

Amount: $350,000 

Description/Eligibility: Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections (SCHC) helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations by supporting preventive conservation measures that mitigate deterioration and prolong the useful life of collections. Libraries, archives, museums, and historical organizations across the country are responsible for collections of books and manuscripts, photographs, sound recordings and moving images, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, art, and historical objects that facilitate research, strengthen teaching, and provide opportunities for life-long learning in the humanities. As museums, libraries, archives, and other collecting institutions strive to be effective stewards of humanities collections, they must find ways to implement preventive conservation measures that are scientifically sound and sustainable. This program therefore helps cultural repositories plan and implement preservation strategies that pragmatically balance effectiveness, cost, and environmental impact. 

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu)  in the COLA Office of Research and return Proposal Review Form by November 4.
