GRANTS BULLETIN

Vol. 6 No. 31 January - March 2016

Responsible Conduct in Research Requirements

NSF requires that all students working on NSF grants must have RCR training.  That training must cover each of the 9 RCR elements that are applicable to the work they are doing on the grant.  The students must sign a form confirming that they have been trained in the appropriate elements.  The list of RCR elements can be found at: http://www.brynmawr.edu/grants/RCRPolicy.html.  The forms for student signature can be found at: Student Certification of RCR Training.  The auditors and NSF are getting very strict about our need to follow the RCR requirements and non-compliance could impact whether a grant remains viable.

NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES - FELLOWSHIPS

The National Endowment for the Humanities  program has an early deadline this year of April 28, 2016.  While guidelines for this upcoming competition have not been posted, the guidelines for the previous year are available and will give applicants an idea of what is required to apply.  Fellowships support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development. The fellowships are highly competitive and use a peer-review selection process.  Additional information can be found at: http://www.neh.gov/grants/research/fellowships
