William T. Grant Scholars Program: This program supports four to six talented junior investigators per year for five years to investigate topics
relevant to the mental health of children, adolescents, and youth. Grants are by nomination only. Awards are made to institutions for support of
selected faculty members for up to $60,000 per year for five years for a maximum total award of $300,000. This sum includes an indirect cost
allowance not to exceed 7.5 percent of total direct costs. This money may be used only for the research efforts of the faculty member. Up to one-half
of the faculty member's salary can be met by this grant, but it must not replace current university support for the faculty member's research efforts. In
general, it is expected that a portion of this grant will be used for that percentage of the faculty member's salary equivalent to the time spent in
research in this program area and the remainder used for support of the actual research. However, each institution will be free to propose how it will
use the funds to best achieve the goals of the program. Faculty at all universities and nonprofit research institutions, both national and international, in
any discipline are eligible. Only one candidate may be nominated from any department or research center of a university. Faculty so nominated usually
should be in their first level or rank of appointment (usually at the assistant professor level). Support will be limited to faculty who are well-trained in
research methods and wish to bring creative approaches to the study of problems relevant to the program interest of the foundation. They must
demonstrate the ability to do sophisticated research in these areas rather than to pursue further training. Studies are sought that pursue creative and
multi-method approaches, and/or that link behaviors and development during the school-age years to late adolescence and youth. The university must
commit itself to the faculty member for the five-year period of appointment with space, remainder of salary support, and the free time to conduct the
research. The setting in which the investigator will work should be thoroughly described. A mentor should be available to guide the research.
Institutional resources must be available to conduct the research, and the setting in which the investigator can in turn influence colleagues and
students should be outlined. The award should not duplicate other funding received or pending. A national selection committee will make
recommendations for selection to the Board of Trustees. After initial screening by the Selection Committee, finalists will be asked to come to New York
for an interview with the Committee. Final selection will be made by the end of Mar.

Program descriptions:
Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowships: The dissertation fellowships of $15,000 are designed to enable the completion of
the writing of the Ph.D. thesis within the award year. Awards are made for research clearly relevant to human dominance, aggression, and violence,
but not necessarily restricted to studies of humans. Applications are evaluated in comparison with one another, but not with the postdoctoral research
proposals. Applicants may be citizens of any country and studying at colleges or universities in any country. Final reports to the foundation are
mandatory.
Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Grants for Research: The foundation sponsors an international program of scientific research and scholarly
study concerning the causes and consequences of dominance, aggression, and violence. Awards will be made only for projects with well-defined aims
clearly germane to the human case, but not necessarily restricted to studies of humans. The foundation will consider projects designed to reveal basic
physiological mechanisms, to elucidate fundamental psychological processes, to analyze critical social interrelations, or otherwise advance knowledge
from any discipline that will further the foundation's intellectual and practical objectives. Whatever the discipline and method, the principal criteria for
support of a project proposed to the foundation are the same: excellence and relevance. While the average grant has been approximately $25,000
yearly, applications for greater or lesser sums will be judged on their merits. Most awards are in the range of $15,000-$30,000 per year. Proposals
may be submitted for one-, two-, or three-year projects. All awards, however, are of one-year terms initially. Funding for second and third years of
projects tentatively approved for more than one year will require annual applications for continuation and will depend upon evidence of satisfactory
progress and an account of expenditures during the previous year. The principal objective of these short-term grants is to provide seed money to get
new projects started rather then to lend continuing support to already well-established endeavors. Grants are made to individuals for individual projects
either directly or to an institution on behalf of an individual. Requests will be considered for salaries, benefits, research assistantships, computer time,
supplies and equipment, field work, secretarial and technical help, and other necessary items. Funds are not supplied for overhead costs of institutions,
conferences, travel to professional meetings, or self-education. Final reports must be submitted to the foundation within six months after end of grant
period.

(James McKeen) Cattell Fund
Supplemental Sabbatical Awards for Psychologists
http://www.cattell.duke.edu/
Deadline: Dec. 1
For over half a century, the James McKeen Cattell Fund has provided support for the science and the application of
psychology. The Fund offers a program of supplementary sabbatical awards ("James McKeen Cattell Fund
Fellowships"). These awards supplement the regular sabbatical allowance provided by the recipients' home institutions,
to allow an extension of leave-time from one to two semesters. James McKeen Cattell Fund awards are available to
psychologists who are faculty members at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and are eligible,
according to the regulations of their own institutions, for a sabbatical leave or its equivalent. Eligible candidates must be
either tenured faculty members or nontenured associate professors in a tenure-track position. Ordinarily, awards are
made to persons who have been continuously employed in an academic teaching or administrative position for the
previous five years. The Fund has a strong preference for supporting applicants who have not had a leave with outside
support during that period. The maximum award is limited to the lesser of (1) half the recipient's salary for the academic
year, (2) an amount less than half salary that will bring the total of the university allowance plus the award up to the
individual's normal academic-year salary, or (3) a ceiling of $32,000. For more information, contact: Dr. Christina L.

Bubel/Aiken Foundation
http://www.thebubelaikenfoundation.org/default.aspx?tabid=63
The Bubel/Aiken Foundation’s Grant Program will focus on programs that help change the life experience for
people with developmental disabilities. A developmental disability is a severe and chronic disability caused by
a mental or physical impairment or a combination of both. The disability occurs prior to age 22 and is likely to
continue indefinitely. The Bubel/Aiken Foundation recognizes developmental disabilities as a natural part of
the human experience. A disability should not diminish the right of an individual to live independently, exert
control and choice over their lives, or to fully participate in and contribute to their communities. These
individuals should enjoy full integration and inclusion in the economic, political, social, cultural, and
educational mainstream of our society.

With the advent of new technology, more and more options exist to enable persons with disabilities to live
independently, to achieve higher levels of education, to participate in activities of the workplace, and to
engage in hobbies and recreational activities. With the awareness of the existence of technology, persons with
disabilities and their families expect access to that technology. However, attempting to fulfill those
expectations often leads to frustration as individuals seek financial assistance to purchase needed devices.
Consumers and families are often confronted with a seemingly impenetrable maze of eligibility requirements,
potential funding sources, restrictions, paperwork, rules and regulations, and denials and refusals. This
Informed Consumer Guide attempts to provide sources of information to help negotiate that maze. Researched

Using Mini-Grants to Fund Assistive Technology for Students with Severe Disabilities
http://www.ttac.odu.edu/Articles/minigrant.html
Assistive technology devices can often be the deciding factor in whether a student with severe disabilities
succeeds or fails in their educational programs. It is widely accepted that assistive technology can enhance
communication, inclusion in school and community, and vocational opportunities for students with disabilities.
Although IDEA specifically identified the school districts' responsibility to provide assistive technology to
students who need them to benefit from their educational programs, school districts of all sizes often do not
have funds available to purchase appropriate devices for all students who need them. In these cases, mini-
grants from local civic and business organizations can often help to generate the needed funds.
