Faculty may apply for grants for (1) individual research and travel; (2) individual and joint faculty curriculum innovation; (3) research conferences and workshops; and (4) sustaining faculty working groups.
The French Embassy and the FACE Foundation are launching the Thomas Jefferson Fund to support new collaborations and the most innovative projects between promising young researchers in France and the United States. The Thomas Jefferson Fund aims to foster forward-looking collaborative research in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and of Science for Society that addresses the most pressing global challenges.
A University-wide center, the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center seeks to bring together researchers from across the entire to enable the interdisciplinary study of the biopsychosocial nature of the aging process and its modifiability.
Sponsored by the Center under the direction of Ursula M. Staudinger, Ph.D., these faculty fellowships are open to all junior and senior Columbia University faculty members interested in innovative disciplinary and interdisciplinary research on aging and the lifecourse.
The PSSN Program will offer annual seed/pilot grants to enable collaboration between Columbia and Barnard faculty in the humanities, arts, or social sciences, and faculty in the natural sciences whose primary focus is the empirical study of mind, brain, and behavior. This request for proposals is open to all full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College that contribute to these interdisciplinary goals. Non-faculty applications may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis with at least one faculty member serving as co-investigator.
The Center for Science and Society at Columbia University invites proposals for innovative interdisciplinary projects involving the study of science in society that need modest amounts of seed money to initiate collaborative research and programming. All full-time faculty, students, and postdocs at Columbia University and Barnard College are eligible, and proposals are welcomed especially from undergraduate and graduate students. Projects might include small research projects, support for a reading group, inviting a speaker, or a contribution towards developing a conference.
The overarching goal of INFEWS is to catalyze well-integrated interdisciplinary and convergent research to transform scientific understanding of the FEW nexus (integrating all three components rather than addressing them separately), in order to improve system function and management, address system stress, increase resilience, and ensure sustainability. The NSF INFEWS initiative is designed specifically to attain the following goals:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, seeks applications for research on how pollution affects human health in the context of the total environment – built, natural, and social environments interacting together with inherent characteristics and interactions.
