Call for Proposals: NSF on Coronavirus

NSF - Open till further notice

NSF Accepting Proposals on Coronavirus. In light of the emergence and spread of COVID-19 in the United States and abroad, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting proposals to conduct non-medical, non-clinical-care research that can be used immediately to explore how to model and understand the spread of COVID-19, to inform and educate about the science of virus transmission and prevention, and to encourage the development of processes and actions to address this global challenge.

Promoting Reproductive Health for Adolescents and Adults with Disabilities

NICHD - March 30, 2022

This award supports research that addresses gaps in the understanding of best practices for promoting reproductive health across the transition from adolescence to adulthood for persons with disabilities.

While awareness of health disparities related to race and ethnicity, sex, and gender has increased, awareness of health disparities among persons with disabilities (PWD) has lagged. Systematic reviews and empirical studies have shown that PWD experience disparities in preventive health care. Qualitative research interviewing physicians in general practice reveals that only a minority feel very confident in their abilities to care for PWD. Reproductive health care is particularly problematic. Providers struggle to assign decision-making priority between persons with disabilities and their caregivers. Providers also report discomfort defining the full set of appropriate preventive screening procedures and preventive care options and assessing patients’ ability to participate or use them.

Deadline: March 30, 2022
Letter of intent due February 28, 2022

Fertility Status as a Marker for Overall Health

NIH / NICHD R01 - February 19, 2022

The purpose of this funding opportunity (FOA) is to support research that explores the premise that fertility status can be a marker for overall health. Chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and obesity can impair fertility; however, less is known about the extent to which fertility status can impact or act as a marker for overall health. Data suggest that infertility is not necessarily a unique disease of the reproductive axis but is often physiologically or genetically linked with other diseases and conditions. Recent epidemiologic studies demonstrate links between fertility status in both males and females and various somatic diseases and disorders. Taken together, these data strongly suggest that fertility status can be a window into overall health.

Deadline: February 19, 2022

Human Networks and Data Science Proposal Deadline

National Science Foundation HNDS-R - July 14, 2022

The Human Networks and Data Science program (HNDS) supports research that enhances understanding of human behavior by leveraging data and network science research across a broad range of topics. HNDS research will identify ways in which dynamic, distributed, and heterogeneous data can provide novel answers to fundamental questions about individual and group behavior. HNDS is especially interested in proposals that provide data-rich insights about human networks to support improved health, prosperity, and security. HNDS-R proposals only

Network on Life Course Health Dynamics and Disparities in 21st Century America (NLCHDD)

National Institute on Aging - October 14, 2022

Request for Pilot Proposals

The Network on Life Course Health Dynamics and Disparities in 21st Century America (NLCHDD), funded by the National Institute on Aging, invites interested researchers to submit pilot proposals that examine how multiple contexts (e.g., state and local) jointly shape health and mortality of midlife and older adults. Examining multiple contexts is essential because it 1) reflects the reality that people are embedded in multiple contexts, each having independent or synergistic effects on adult health and mortality, 2) can identify appropriately targeted strategies and interventions. Proposals might examine, for example, how state policy contexts affect adult in health in rural versus urban counties; or how the relative importance of different contexts on health changes across the life course and differ by gender, race/ethnicity, and SES. The NLCHDD is seeking proposals that will advance science in this important area and to lead to fundable grants.

Investigators may request total (direct + indirect) costs in the range of $35,000 - $50,000, with
a limit of 8% on indirect costs (IDC). Funds can be used for research assistance, salaries, travel,
data acquisition, etc. Principal Investigators must hold a PhD.

Deadline: October 14, 2022

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Princeton University

The Center for Research on Child Wellbeing (CRCW), directed by Dr. Kathryn Edin and part of the School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, invites outstanding researchers to apply for appointments each academic year. CRCW conducts research on children and young adults' health, education, and economic wellbeing and on understanding disadvantaged communities. Our current initiatives include the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS) and work to understand how disability insurance helps families make ends meet. CRCW is offering a highly competitive postdoctoral research position to an individual with documented interest in the study of adolescence and the transition to young adulthood and experience working with the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS) or other, similar longitudinal survey data. This position will provide the successful applicant with the opportunity to be among the first to use data from the FFCWS age 22 survey.

The following appointment is available for the 2023 - 2024 academic year.

Applicants should apply online at and submit a cover letter describing areas of interest, graduate training, relevant background and possible fit within the center, recent CV, and names, e-mails and phone numbers of three references.

Research to Advance Racial Equity Grant

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - Open till further notice

Through a program called Evidence for Action (E4A), the foundation invites innovative research proposals for studies about upstream causes of health inequities, such as the systems, structures, laws, policies, norms, and practices that determine the distribution of resources and opportunities, which in turn influence individuals’ options and behaviors. Research should center on the needs and experiences of communities exhibiting the greatest health burdens and be motivated by real-world priorities. It should be able to inform a specific course of action and/or establish beneficial practices, not stop at characterizing or documenting the extent of a problem.  Proposals may be submitted anytime.

Awards: Multiple grants are anticipated for projects lasting up to 36 months

Eligibility: Preference will be given to applicant organizations that are either U.S. institutes of higher education, public entities, or 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

Awards ID: E4A
