Title/Sponsor: AHRQ Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Mentored Clinical Investigator Award (K08)
Deadline: Feb 12, June 12, Oct 12
Announcement Number: PA-13-180
Purpose: The overall goal of the AHRQ Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Mentored Clinical Investigator (K08) program is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation’s health services research needs. More information about AHRQ Career programs may be found at the AHRQ Training and Education website and at the NIH Extramural Training Mechanisms website. The objective of the AHRQ PCOR K08 program is to provide salary and research support for a sustained period of “protected time” (3-5 years) for individuals with clinical doctoral degrees (e.g., MD, DDS, DMD, DO, DC, OD, ND, DVM, PharmD, or PhD in clinical disciplines). The K08 provides support for an intensive, mentored research career development experience in comparative effectiveness research (CER) methods as applied to patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). For purposes of this FOA, CER is defined as the conduct and synthesis of research comparing the benefits and harms of different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor health conditions, as well as the delivery of health care in “real world” settings.The award may be used by candidates with different levels of prior research training and at different stages in their career development. For example, a candidate with limited experience in health services research may use an award to support a career development experience that includes a designated period of didactic training followed by a period of closely supervised research experience. A candidate with previous health services research experience and training may not require extensive additional didactic preparation, and may use an award to support a career development experience that focuses on an intensive, supervised research experience.
Award: AHRQ will provide salary for the award recipient for a requested portion of the candidate’s institutional salary, of up to $90,000 annually plus associated fringe benefits. The total salary requested must be based on a full-time staff appointment. The salary must be consistent both with the established salary structure at the institution and with salaries actually provided by the institution from its own funds to other staff members of equivalent qualifications, rank, and responsibilities in the department concerned. The sponsoring institution may supplement the AHRQ salary contribution up to a level that is consistent with the institution’s salary scale. However, supplementation may not be from Federal funds unless specifically authorized by the Federal program from which such funds are derived. In no case may PHS funds be used for salary supplementation. Institutional supplementation of salary must not require extra duties or responsibilities that would interfere with the purpose of the career award.

Title/Sponsor: Fulbright Grants and Awards
Deadline: Feb 12, June 12, Oct 12
Announcement Number:
Purpose: The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.” With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided almost 310,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
The term “Fulbright Program” encompasses a variety of exchange programs, including both individual and institutional grants:
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends approximately 1,100 American scholars and professionals per year to approximately 125 countries, where they lecture and/or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.
The Fulbright Specialist Program, a short-term complement to the core Fulbright Scholar Program, sends U.S. faculty and professionals to serve as expert consultants on curriculum, faculty development, institutional planning and related subjects at overseas academic institutions for a period of 2 to 6 weeks.
The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program provides grants to approximately 800 foreign scholars from over 95 countries to lecture and/or conduct postdoctoral research at U.S. institutions for an academic semester to a full academic year.
The Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) Program enables U.S. colleges and universities to host foreign academics to lecture on a wide range of subject fields for a semester or academic year. Preference is given to institutions developing an international agenda and/or serving a minority audience, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges, small liberal arts colleges and community colleges. Approximately 50 grants are awarded annually.
New offerings include:
Fulbright Flex Awards provide grants for U.S. scholars to spend one to three months in the host country over a period of two to three years. This is a great opportunity for scholars who are unable to spend extended periods of time abroad.
Salary Stipend Supplements are available to U.S. scholars on Fulbright teaching or teaching/research grants, and allow scholars to receive their same base salary level.
Fulbright Postdoctoral/Early Career Awards provide U.S. scholars who have completed their doctoral degrees within the five previous years the opportunity to deepen their expertise, to acquire new skills, to work with additional resources, and to make connections with others in their fields.
