Title: Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIG) in Archaeology and Archaeometry (NSF 14-566)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: Open

Amount: $20,000 (direct costs) (1-3 yrs.)

Description: The Archaeology Program supports anthropologically relevant archaeological research. This means that the value of the proposed research can be justified within an anthropological context. The Program sets no priorities by either geographic region or time period. It also has no priorities in regard to theoretical orientation or question and it is the responsibility of the applicant to explain convincingly why these are significant and have the potential to contribute to anthropological knowledge. While the Program, in order to encourage innovative research, neither limits nor defines specific categories of research type, most applications either request funds for field research and/or the analysis of archaeological material through multiple approaches. The Program also supports methodological projects which develop analytic techniques of potential archaeological value.

How to Apply: Applications accepted on a rolling basis. Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return Proposal Review Form three weeks before you plan to submit to the sponsor.

Title: A Family-Centered Self-Management of Chronic Conditions  (R01) (PA-14-112)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 9/15/2014

Amount: $250,000/yr. (1-5 yrs.) 

Description: The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research that seeks to build the science of family-centered self-management (FCSM) in chronic conditions. Family-centered self-management is the purposeful incorporation of health-related behaviors into an individual’s daily functioning within the context of the family, taking into account friendship networks and community relationships.  FCSM focuses on active involvement of both the individual and family member(s) or supportive other(s) to simultaneously manage symptoms, treatments, lifestyle changes, and psychosocial consequences associated with chronic conditions in a manner that reflects their values and beliefs in personally meaningful ways.  As an individual and the family embrace joint responsibility to “self-manage” chronic conditions, they become more informed about an illness, more likely to seek an active role in health decisions such as whether to take medications recommended by clinicians, whether to use technology, or which health behavior related goals to pursue. Accordingly, FCSM builds self-regulation skills and abilities, and improves interaction among individuals, caregiver(s), and health professionals in the health care delivery system. R01 major research grants provide support for health-related research and development based on the mission of the NIH. 

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return Proposal Review Form by September 15.

Title: Behavioral Interventions to Address Multiple Chronic Health Conditions in Primary Care (R01) (PI-14-114) 

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 9/15/2014

Amount: $250,000/yr. (1-5 yrs.)

Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) seeks Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to use a common conceptual model to develop behavioral interventions to modify health behaviors and improve health outcomes in patients with comorbid chronic diseases and health conditions. Specifically, this FOA will support research in primary care that uses a multi-disease care management approach to behavioral interventions with high potential impact to improve patient-level health outcomes for individuals with three or more chronic health conditions. The proposed approach must modify behaviors using a common approach rather than administering a distinct intervention for each targeted behavior and/or condition. Diseases and health conditions can include, but are not limited to: mental health disorders (e.g., depression), diabetes, smoking, obesity, chronic pain, alcohol and substance abuse and dependence, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, cancer and hypertension. R01 major research grants provide support for health-related research and development based on the mission of the NIH.
