25 Grants For Young Researchers

25 Grants For Young Researchers

Kickstart your career by applying for one of these grants. Getting your research off the ground isnt always easy. Luckily, sources of funds like the ones below can help. [ KaYann - Fotolia.com] Finding funds for research is among the steepest hurdles that young investigators must surmount as they grow from grad school students to postdocs to finally running their own laboratories. Years of yo-yo budgeting has reduced the confidence young researchers once had of obtaining funding through NIH, and over the past 20 years, lowered the amount of money available. The success rate for all research project grants dipped to 15.3% in the sequestration-stymied federal fiscal year that ended September 30, 2013, about half the two-decade high 29.5% of FY 1999. Imagine yourself as a visionary young scientist at one of our nations research universities. You have many exciting ideas. You write up the most promising and send the grant application to NIH in hopes of being supported. But you find it increasingly difficult to remain optimistic or to see a future in this field when you look at the steep odds of being funded, Sally Rockey, NIHs deputy director for extramural research, wrote September 24, 2013, in her blog Rock Talk on NIHs website. A little bit of help is on the way, thanks to GENs list of 25 grant programs that direct funds to younger researchers. The list is unranked and listed in the alphabetical order of the sponsoring organizations, based on information furnished by these organizations on their websites and other publicly available material. Each program is listed by its name, amount of funding available and types of costs covered, eligibility requirements of applicants, purpose of the grant program, status of recent activity, and a link or links with more detailed pro Continue reading >>

(4)Centre of Research on Psychological and Somatic Diseases (CoRPS), Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology, Tilburg University, Tilburg, The Netherlands. AIMS: To estimate and discuss the allocation of diabetes research funds tostudies with a psychosocial focus.METHODS: Annual reports and funded-research databases from approximately the last5 years (if available) were reviewed from the following representative fundingorganizations, the American Diabetes Association, the Canadian DiabetesAssociation, Diabetes Australia, Diabetes UK, the Dutch Diabetes ResearchFoundation and the European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes, in order toestimate the overall proportion of studies allocated research funding that had a psychosocial focus.RESULTS: An estimated mean of 8% of funded studies from our sample were found to have a psychosocial focus.CONCLUSIONS: The proportion of funded studies with a psychosocial focus wassmall, with an estimated mean ratio of 17:1 observed between funded biomedicaland psychosocial studies in diabetes research. While several factors may account for this finding, the observation that 90% of funded studies are biomedical maybe partly attributable to the methodological orthodoxy of applying biomedicalreductionism to understand and treat disease.

Progress & Final Reports

Currently funded researchers: progress and final reports We are committed to tracking the impact that Diabetes Canada-funded personnel are making on diabetes research in Canada. As such, we expect all funded researchers to submit annual progress reports and a final report at the end of the grant. These reports also provide Diabetes Canada with information that can be used to help disseminate research outcomes and successes to our network of wide-reaching audiences. For ease of use, progress reports are now in survey format and must be filled out and submitted electronically. Failure to submit these reports will jeopardize ongoing and future funding from Diabetes Canada. These are to be submitted on or before April 30 annually for the duration of the grant funding. These reports are intended to update Diabetes Canada staff (and the National Research Council as needed) on the progress of the research over the previous year of funding. These are to be submitted every 12 months for the duration of the grant funding, commencing from the grant start date. These reports are intended to update Diabetes Canada staff (and the National Research Council as needed) on the progress of the research over the previous year of funding. These are to be submitted within six months of the end of funding. These reports are intended to update Diabetes Canada staff on the total progress and results of the entire research project funded by Diabetes Canada. NOTE: In addition to the progress or final report, all researchers are required to submit one copy of each publication resulting from this funding (if any) to [email protected] with the subject line "Research report publications."
