Social Science and Human-Dimension Research (Sea Grant affiliated)

The California, University of Southern California, Oregon, and Washington Sea Grant programs are jointly interested in coordinated research efforts that bring together researchers from across the West Coast region to address specific social science and human-dimension issues of regional importance that align with the goals of the National Sea Grant College Program.  The program anticipates being able to fund between two and four regional projects for the 2014-2016 biennium. Individual projects should not request more than $100,000 per year (including indirect costs) from any relevant state Sea Grant program (total project costs can exceed $100K per year if more than one state Sea Grant program is involved). Projects will be selected through an open, competitive, peer-review process.

Amount: $100,000

Date due: April 1, 2013 (Pre-proposals)

Oregon Humanities Conversation Project

Oregon Humanities is seeking scholars, artists, community leaders, innovators, provocateurs, and other engaged thinkers to be leaders for the Conversation Project, a program that offers Oregon nonprofits free, humanities-based public discussion programs about provocative issues and ideas. Conversation Project discussions are led by humanities experts who receive conversation facilitator training from Oregon Humanities. These conversation leaders connect a particular subject to participants’ experiences and to the local community, and model critical thinking without advocating a particular political agenda.

Conversation leaders receive a $200 honorarium, as well as mileage reimbursement and a meal stipend, for each approved program. Leaders must be residents of Oregon. Conversation Project programs will be available from November 1, 2013, through October 31, 2015. Proposals are due March 8, 2013.

Amount: $200

Due date: March 8, 2013
