June 2020 U.S. Federal Funding Opportunities

U.S. Federal Funding Opportunities (FFO) is a monthly resource that summarizes awards, grants, and fellowship opportunities issued by the U.S. government related to research, evaluation and dissemination. These funding opportunities are relevant to the field of child development and, more broadly, behavioral and social science research.

Highlights -

The June 2020 FFO lists over 100 funding opportunities for research, evaluation, and dissemination, including multiple highlighted funding opportunities.

(1) NIH: Collaborative Centers in Children's Environmental Health Research and Translation. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) invites grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to build a center charged with developing effective strategies to translate key children's environmental health research findings to relevant stakeholders in the community, academia and practice. Applications are due by November 23, 2020.

(2) NIH: Community Interventions to Address the Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic among Health Disparity and Vulnerable Populations. This FOA encourages applications to implement and evaluate community interventions testing 1) the impacts of mitigation strategies to prevent COVID-19 transmission in NIH-designated health disparity populations and other vulnerable groups; and 2) already implemented, new, or adapted interventions to address the adverse psychosocial, behavioral, and socioeconomic consequences of the pandemic on the health of these groups. Applications are due by August 28, 2020.

(3) NIH: Mid-Career Enhancement Awards to Integrate Basic Behavioral, Biomedical, and/or Social Scientific Processes. This FOA invites applications from investigators who strive to expand their research trajectories through the acquisition of new knowledge and skills in the areas of basic psychological processes, sociological processes, and/or biomedical pathways—expertise that is beyond and enhances their current areas of expertise. Applications are due by March 17, 2021.

(4) NIH: Neuroscience Development for Advancing the Careers of a Diverse Research Workforce. This FOA is intended to support educational activities that encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, to pursue further studies or careers in research. Applications are due by January 25, 2021.
