    The American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation advances the values of family medicine by promoting humanitarian, educational, and scientific initiatives that improve the health of all people. To that end, the academy is accepting applications for its Family Medicine Cares USA program.

    Launched in 2011, the program is designed to help new and existing free clinics care for the uninsured in areas of need across the United States by providing new grants of up to $10,000 for the purchase of tangible items such as exam tables, EHR systems, and medical equipment. Family Medicine Cares USA also gives AAFP members, residents, and students the opportunity to volunteer their time and talents.

    As of December 31, 2017, the program had awarded a total of $415,829 to fourteen new clinics and twenty-four existing clinics. Those clinics have reported more than 212,000 patient visits totaling over $42,000,000 in health care services since the program's inception.

    To be eligible, applicants must be a new clinic nearing completion of the Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) clinic development process and have an AAFP member in a leadership role. Primary consideration will be given to clinics with an AAFP member serving as medical director and to those who have family medicine residents and/or medical students involved as volunteers.

Proposals that open up new avenues of research in chemistry and the life sciences by fostering the invention of methods, instruments and materials will be given additional consideration.

    Projects are normally funded for a period of four years. Grants are in the range of $600,000 over the term of the project, contingent on demonstrated progress after the second year of the award.

    The BYI program is open to those within the first three years of a tenure-track position, or an equivalent independent research appointment, in an academic or nonprofit institution that conducts research in the chemical and life sciences. Candidates must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of application.

    The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood supports innovative, creative projects and programs with the potential to significantly enhance the development, health, safety, education, and/or quality of life of children from birth through age five.

    The foundation provides funding in the areas of early childhood welfare, early childhood education and play, and parenting education.

    1) Early Childhood Welfare: Children can only reach their full potential when all aspects of their development — intellectual, emotional, and physical — are optimally supported. Providing a safe and nurturing environment for infants and preschoolers is essential, as is imparting to them the skills of social living in a culturally diverse world. To that end, the foundation supports programs that research best child-rearing practices and identify models that can provide creative, caring environments designed to ensure that all children thrive.

    2) Early Childhood Education and Play: Research shows that children need to be stimulated as well as nurtured, early in life, if they are to succeed in school, work, and life. That preparation relates to every aspect of a child’s development, from birth to age 5, and everywhere a child learns — at home, in childcare settings, and in preschool. The foundation seeks to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning through the development of innovative curricula and research-based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments.

    3) Parenting Education: To help parents create nurturing environments for their children, the foundation supports programs that teach parents about developmental psychology, cultural child-rearing differences, pedagogy, issues of health, and prenatal care and diet, as well programs that provide both cognitive and emotional support to parents.

    The quality of one’s health is determined by multiple factors: the natural environment, economic opportunities, genetic factors and, to a small degree, medical care. Yet, for many people, it is the conditions in which they live that impact their health the most. Many neighborhoods experience limited access to affordable fresh food, safe places for recreation, high-quality education and living-wage jobs. People who live in these neighborhoods may be exposed to environmental hazards due to the proximity of polluting industries and substandard housing. Improving these conditions promotes health equity among people in low-income neighborhoods and fosters improved health for entire communities.

    Community residents often have a sophisticated understanding of the challenges they face and the solutions that will alleviate these challenges. Equitable and sustainable solutions are best created when leaders of community-based organizations truly engage residents in creating strategies to address neighborhood priorities. Together, they can achieve results that are superior and more durable than solutions imposed from the outside.

    Community-driven solutions are locally determined and contextually appropriate approaches to influence changes in policies, systems, services and practices that create equitable conditions that affect the health and well-being of communities. Local and place-based approaches hold the potential create meaningful and lasting impact and serve as new models for community change.

    Through this focus area, we work to:

    Improve housing affordability and quality through local policy changes

    Support communities to achieve their aspirations to drive more equitable policies, systems and practices.

    Increase the adoption of food-oriented development.

    Increase the adoption of inclusive or community-driven models of community development that address community conditions such as housing, food systems and safety.

    The National Academy of Education advances high-quality education research and its use in policy formation and practice. Founded in 1965, the academy comprises U.S. members and foreign associates who are elected on the basis of outstanding scholarship related to education. Since its establishment, NAEd has undertaken research studies that address pressing issues in education, which are typically conducted by members and other scholars with relevant expertise.

    As part of that mission, the nonresidential NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports early-career scholars working in critical areas of education research. The program also develops the careers of its recipients through professional development activities involving National Academy of Education members.

    Fellows receive $70,000 for one academic year of research, or $35,000 for each of two contiguous years, working half-time, and will be included in professional development retreats with other fellows and NAEd members. This year, the organization will award thirty fellowships to begin during the 2019-20 academic year.

    The program is open to all eligible applicants regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation. Applicants must have received their Ph.D., Ed.D., or equivalent research degree between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2017. In addition, all applicants should have a demonstrated record of research experience in education.

    The Voya Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Voya Financial, works to ensure that youth are equipped with the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) knowledge and financial expertise needed to compete in the twenty-first century workforce and make smart financial decisions that lead to a secure retirement.

    To that end, Voya is accepting applications from organizations that provide innovative and experiential K-8 STEM learning opportunities and/or improve teachers' capabilities in STEM; or provide financial education curriculum to students in grades 9-12 focused on navigating major financial milestones, including student debt, credit, home ownership, financial products and services, and family needs.

    1) STEM Education: The foundation supports organizations that fund high-quality experiential STEM learning opportunities for students in grades K-8. Programs are evaluated based on improvements in covered STEM concepts and increased interest in STEM careers generated over the course of the program.

    2) Financial Literacy: The foundation supports organizations that provide financial literacy curriculum to students in high school (grades 9-12). Programs must cover student debt, credit, home ownership, investing and understanding of financial products and services (financial capability), and family financial planning.
