     The American Antiquarian Society (AAS), a
national research library and learned society of
American history and culture, is calling for
applications for visiting fellowships for
historical research by creative and performing
artists, writers, film makers, journalists, and
other persons whose goals are to produce
imaginative, non-formulaic works dealing with
pre-twentieth-century American history. Successful
applicants are those whose work is for the general
public rather than for academic or educational
audiences. The Society's goal in sponsoring this
program is to multiply and improve the ways in
which an understanding of history is communicated
to the American people. The fellowships will
provide the recipients with the opportunity for a
period of uninterrupted research, reading, and
collegial discussion at the Society, located in
Worcester, Massachusetts. FUNDING: At least three
fellowships will be awarded for residence of four
weeks at the Society at any time during the period
January l through December 31. The stipend will be
$1,350 for fellows residing on campus (rent-free)
in the Society's scholars' housing, located next
to the main library building. The stipend will be
$1,850 for fellows residing off campus. Fellows
will not be paid a travel allowance.

     The Barth Syndrome Foundation, Inc. (BSF) and
its international affiliates announce the
availability of funding for basic science and
clinical research on the natural history,
biochemical basis, and treatment of Barth
syndrome. Barth syndrome (BTHS) is a serious
X-linked genetic condition associated with
cardiomyopathy, neutropenia, skeletal muscle
weakness, exercise intolerance, growth delay, and
diverse biochemical abnormalities (including
defects in mitochondrial metabolism and
phospholipid biosynthesis). Because many clinical
and biochemical abnormalities of Barth syndrome
remain poorly understood, the Foundation is
seeking proposals for both basic science and
clinical research that may shed light on any
aspect of the syndrome. The Foundation is
interested in providing "seed grant funding" to
young investigators as well as attracting
experienced investigators new to the field of BTHS
basic science or clinical research. FUNDING:
Several one- or two-year grants of up to $40,000
each. Funds will be available soon after the
successful grant applicants have been notified in
early March, 2011.

     The Institute for Advanced Study is an
independent private institution founded in 1930 to
create a community of scholars focused on
intellectual inquiry, free from teaching and other
university obligations. Each year scholars from
around the world apply to come to the Institute to
pursue their own research. Those who are chosen
are offered a membership for a set period and a
stipend. Members receive access to the extensive
resources of the Institute, including offices,
access to libraries, subsidized restaurant and
housing facilities, and some secretarial services.
The School of Historical Studies supports
scholarship in all fields of historical research,
but is concerned principally with the history of
western, near eastern and Asian civilizations,
with particular emphasis upon Greek and Roman
civilization, the history of Europe (medieval,
early modern, and modern), the Islamic world, East
Asian studies, the history of art, the history of
science, philosophy, and modern international
relations.  The School also offers the Edward T.
Cone Membership in Music Studies. Each year the
School welcomes approximately forty Members. Most
are working on topics in the above mentioned
fields, but each year the School also selects some
scholars working in other areas of historical
research. Members in the School are appointed for
either one term (first term Sept. 19 to Dec. 16,
second term Jan. 9 to April 6) or for two terms,
amounting to a full academic year. ELIGIBILITY:
Requirements include the Ph.D. (or equivalent) at
the time of application and a substantial record
of publication. The School takes into account the
stage of the scholar's academic career when
considering the list of publications, but in
general applicants should have at least several
articles already published in scholarly
publications in order to be considered eligible.
Qualified candidates of any nationality are
invited to apply. Scholars are not required to
have a current institutional affiliation. FUNDING:
Institute stipends will normally be offered up to
a maximum of $65,000 for the full academic year,
or $32,500 for one term. A few senior scholars
will be offered additional funding to help make up
for losses in salary. Four Assistant Professors
who meet additional eligibility requirements will
be selected for Mellon Fellowships that will
provide full year support matching their salaries
and benefits at the time of application.

     The Michigan Society of Fellows, under the
auspices of the Rackham Graduate School, was
established in 1970 with endowment grants from the
Ford Foundation and the Horace H. and Mary Rackham
Funds. The most distinctive aspect of the Society
is its multidisciplinary emphasis. Each year the
Society selects four outstanding applicants for
appointment to three-year fellowships in the
social, physical, and life sciences, and in the
professional schools. In 2007, the Mellon
Foundation awarded a grant to add four Mellon
Fellows annually in the humanities, expanding the
number of fellowships awarded each year from four
to eight. The newly appointed Postdoctoral Fellows

Non-US citizens may apply. FUNDING: Each Fellow
has a three-year appointment as Assistant
Professor in an affiliated department of the
University and a three-year appointment as a
Postdoctoral Scholar in the Society of Fellows.
This appointment is not tenure-track. The current
annual stipend is $51,500. Fellows are eligible
for participation in the University health, dental
and life insurance programs. Each fellow is
expected to teach the equivalent of one academic
year, i.e., a total of two terms during the period

     Teaching Development Fellowships (TDF)
support college and university teachers pursuing
research aimed specifically at improving their
undergraduate teaching. The program has three
broad goals: 1) to improve the quality of
humanities education in the United States; 2) to
strengthen the link between research and teaching
in the humanities; and 3) to foster excellence in
undergraduate instruction. Projects must improve
an existing undergraduate course that has been
taught in at least THREE different terms and will
continue to be taught by the applicant. Proposals
for new courses or for mere course preparation
will NOT be considered. The research project must
be closely related to the applicant's core
interests as an interpreter of the humanities. The
research undertaken as a part of the project may
involve engaging with fundamental texts or
sources, exploring related subjects or academic
disciplines, or cultivating neglected areas of
learning. Projects may in part entail the
development of a language skill or the acquisition
of digital skills in order to carry out the
proposed research. The project must be directed
primarily towards course improvement, not
scholarly publication. ELIGIBILITY: The Teaching
Development Fellowships program accepts
applications from faculty members who meet the
citizenship requirements and who carry a full-time
teaching load at American two-year or four-year
colleges and universities. Applicants whose
part-time teaching positions at different colleges
or universities amount to the equivalent of a
full-time teaching load are also eligible.
FUNDING: Teaching Development Fellowships cover
periods lasting from three to five months and
carry stipends of $4,200 per month. Thus the
maximum stipend is $21,000 for a five-month award
period.

     The Research Networks in the Mathematical
Sciences (RNMS) Program creates an award mechanism
that supports researchers in ways that are
intermediate in scale, scope, and duration to
existing individual investigator awards and
research institute awards. The RNMS Program
recognizes that, over the past quarter century,
mathematical research has become increasingly
collaborative and interactive, because effectively
overcoming core scientific challenges frequently
requires the sharing of ideas and expertise. A
Research Network is not a substitute for existing
funding mechanisms. In particular, it is intended
to complement (rather than replace) individual
investigator awards by providing additional layers
of interaction. Through the involvement of
postdoctoral researchers and students and the
promotion of international collaborations, the
RNMS will not only focus on problems at the
frontier of the mathematical sciences but also
lead to robust and diverse training of the next
generation of mathematicians and statisticians.
FUNDING: $15 million for 2-8 grants, each for a
maximum of $1 million per year for up to 5 years.

for Innovation Program (PFI) is to stimulate the
transformation of knowledge created by the
research and education enterprise into innovations
that create new wealth; build strong local,
regional, and national economies; and improve the
national well-being. Aligned with this goal, the
PFI competition for FY 2011 funds will provide
support for innovation capacity building to
sustained, dynamic interactive knowledge-enhancing
partnership groups composed of academic
researchers and small business (as defined by the
Small Business Administration (SBA)) practitioners
focused on intense exploration, re-definition, and
creation of novel platforms for translating
research and moving it towards impact.
ELIGIBILITY: The basic organizational core of each
proposed knowledge-enhancing partnership group
must be composed of an academic lead institution
and, at a minimum, two small businesses. FUNDING:

     The Foundation offers Research Grants and
Grants-in-Aid. Research grants in neurobiology are
available to established scientists of all ages
working at accredited institutions in the United
States. Applications will be judged on the
scientific merit and the innovative aspects of the
proposal as well as the competence of the
applicant. Research grants of up to three years
will be provided. A renewal grant with a maximum
of two years is possible, but it will be awarded
on a competitive basis. Research grants will not
be awarded to investigators who have already
received, or expect to receive, substantial
support from other sources, even if it is for an
unrelated purpose. The Grants-in-Aid program is
designed for researchers at the assistant
professor level who experience difficulty in
competing for research funds because they have not
yet become firmly established. Grants-in-Aid can
also be made to senior scientists. All
applications will be judged on the scientific
merit and innovative aspects of the proposal, as
well as on past performance and evidence of the
applicant's continued productivity. FUNDING:
Research grants normally range from $30,000 to
$75,000 per year. Grants-in-Aid are awarded for a
one-year period and do not exceed $30,000.
