IGS applications are invited from individuals seeking scholarship funding for up to 3 years. Individual Graduate Scholarship projects last for 12 to 36 months; field trips are normally involved. In addition to field trip costs, you may apply for a stipend to cover the period while undertaking field research and processing the results. A stipend provides funding to cover direct living costs and is not a salary; as such, employment-based taxes should not be claimed.
Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship (IPF)
IPF grantees are typically researchers at an early stage in their academic career (e.g. who have held a PhD less than 5 years), with qualifications in linguistics and experience in linguistic fieldwork. IPFs are available for between between 12 and 24 months and the maximum amount is £150,000.
Major Documentation Project (MDP)
MDP funding can cover elements including fieldwork costs, equipment, researchers' salaries, and graduate students' stipends (stipends should be included only for activities contributing to the project while in the field or processing the documentation materials). Project duration is from 6 to 36 months. Funding for these projects typically ranges from anything above £10,000 up to £130,000 (the maximum is £150,000).

Typically, these data were collected without an archiving plan in place, and are in or about languages which are endangered or no longer spoken. Legacy Materials Grant projects may develop existing data collections in a variety of ways with a view to making them accessible and discoverable, but the primary focus must be on safeguarding and preserving legacy materials through digitisation and archiving.
The maximum grant is £10,000. Legacy Grant projects last from 6 to 12 months; projects can only be funded if the materials can be made openly accessible at the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR). Solicitation Link

|International Biodiversity Program||Weeden Foundation||Chile; Bolivia; Russia||Grant||Physical Sciences; Life Sciences; Biodiversity; Ecology;||February||Since its inception, the Weeden Foundation has had a strong interest in conservation work internationally. Roughly 30% - 40% of total annual grant expenditure goes to projects outside of the United States, a percentage range that has not changed significantly over the past two decades. This global perspective came about partly through a recognition that most of the planet’s biodiversity is found elsewhere, coupled with an understanding that an American conservation dollar goes much further when spent on the ground in Chile or Russia. To the Weeden trustees, these opportunistic conditions far outweigh the risks typically associated with international grantmaking. Solicitation Link|

|NSRDEC Broad Agency Announcement: Textile Technologies||Army Contracting Command||Global||Grant||Engineering; Technology; Electronic Wearables; Fibers; Electrotextiles||Applications Accepted Continuously||This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is intended to fulfill requirements for scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing state-of-the-art technologies and/or increasing knowledge and understanding as a means of eliminating current technology barriers. This BAA DOES NOT focus on specific systems or hardware solutions. This BAA identifies NSRDEC research/exploratory development areas of interest and provides prospective offerors information on the preparation of proposals along with proposal evaluation factors. The Government may award purchase orders, contracts, grants, cooperative agreements, or other transactions against this BAA. Below are two areas of interest for the smart textiles community. See the full BAA for all R&D opportunities.
Multi-Functional Materials (PG 110)
There is a strong interest in the new and growing field of “wearables.” The wearables field is of interest to the NSRDEC relates to the integration of electronic capabilities into textile materials, combat clothing and combat field equipment worn by Warfighters. Grantees will perform exploratory research on the development of novel multi-functional materials that have significant impact on Warfighter load and increase sustainability in the field.
High Performance Multi-component Fibers (PG 112)
There is a need for research and development of novel fibers to create woven and nonwoven textiles for Warfighter and first responder protection and sustainment. Specifically, novel optical, high strength, electronic, flame resistant, and reactive (chemical, biological) fibers are of interest. Novel optical fiber research and development could involve efforts related to the creation of fibers for friend vs. foe identification, optical communication systems, and optical sensing. High strength fiber R&D should relate to the creation of melt processable fibers for soft and rigid armor; transparent fiber reinforced composites for transparent armor; or structural composites for load carriage, shelters, or other Soldier System applications. Investigation of nanofibers produced through islands-in-the-sea technology for high strength, impact resistant composites is of interest. Electronic fibers for use in, for example, electrotextiles should be melt processable, conducting, shielded, and durable. There is specific interest in developing a flame resistant elastomeric fiber that can be woven into an undergarment and wicks away moisture.

|Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) program||USAID||Global||Grant; Cooperative Agreement||All||December||Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) sources innovative ideas, pilots and rigorously tests them, and supports the scale-up of solutions that demonstrate proven impact and cost-effectiveness. DIV’s tiered funding model; inspired by venture capital funds, invests comparatively small amounts of funding in a variety of unproven ideas, and provides more substantial support only to those that demonstrate rigorous evidence of impact, cost-effectiveness, and potential to scale. Taking a portfolio approach to its impact enables DIV to embrace risk - and occasional failure - as it generates an evidence base for open innovation. DIV’s aim is to create a portfolio of innovations across all sectors and geographies in which USAID works, to improve the lives of millions around the world.
DIV funds development innovations, which can include:
•New ways of delivering or financing goods and services
•More cost-effective adaptations to existing solutions.
•New ways of increasing uptake of existing proven solutions
•Policy changes, shifts, or nudges based on insights from behavioral economics
•Social or behavioral innovations
Innovations are not required to be technology-based, but should be evidence-informed.

Funded projects will assist the U.S. research and education community by enabling state-of-the-art international network services and access to increased collaboration and data services. NSF expects to make 3 to 10 awards in production R&E network infrastructure; 1 to 3 awards in international test beds; and 1 award in Engagement.
