2018 PAA CPC Graduate Student Travel Grants
The Cornell Population Center (CPC) will once again offer travel grants for graduate student affiliates to attend the Population Association of America (PAA) 2018 Annual Meeting at the Sheraton Denver Downtown, Denver, CO, April 26 â€“ 28, 2018. The CPC will reimburse up to $500 for student affiliates, with priority given to students enrolled in the Demography minor and those on the PAA program.
If you are interested in applying for a PAA 2018 travel grant, please e-mail CPCâ€™s Training Director, Matt Hall, and indicate whether you are presenting or attending. The CPC encourages academic and professional growth for our student affiliates, and we are pleased to support these endeavors. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2018.
CPC-CAPS Upstate Population Consortium Seed Grant Program
The Cornell Population Center (CPC) and the Center for Aging Policy Studies (CAPS) at Syracuse University supported three projects through the 2016-17 CPC-CAPS Upstate Population Consortium Seed Grant Program. The UPC seed grant program supports the development of collaborative work between CPC and CAPS affiliates, with the broad goal of fostering a community of population scholars in upstate New York.
Funds of up to $16,000 were awarded to project teams comprised of CPC and CAPS affiliates. Joint work in the following areas is particularly encouraged: aging; families and children; health and health behaviors; immigration and race; psychology and neuroscience; poverty and inequality. Priority is given to proposals that 1) draw on core research areas of CPS and CAPS; 2) have high potential for success in external funding, particularly by NIH and NIA; and 3) include early-career scholars. Proposals should include a narrative of maximum 2,500 words (double-spaced) and a CV or biosketch (of no more than 5 pages) for each investigator.
CPC Grant Development Program
The GDP supports the development and submission of grant proposals to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under the guidance and support of senior CPC affiliates and grant support staff. This annual program is open to all CPC faculty affiliates at the assistant and associate levels who have not yet submitted a successful NIH R03, R21, R01, or K-award proposal. Up to five applicants will be selected based on a competitive review. Each successful applicant will receive $15,000 in project-related research support and access to funds for consultative support.
Grant Preparation Support
CPC affiliates planning on submitting an external grant can contact the CPC for help finding out about potential funding agencies, developing budgets, and complying with Cornell and granting institution requirements. CPC staff are also available to assist with the submission process. Please contact Meg Cole for further information.
Rapid Response Grants
These small grants are available to CPC affiliates whose research projects can be substantially enhanced with the addition of a small amount of money (e.g., travel money for a collaborator, software or data purchases, etc.). To address this type of need, the CPC will entertain requests for faculty research support of less than $2,000 and graduate student research support of less than $500. To apply, send a one-page proposal to email@example.com. Requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year.
