****Extended Deadline****

Michigan Center for Contextual Factors in Alzheimer’s Disease

MCCFAD, a National Institute on Aging funded Alzheimer’s Disease-related Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (AD-RCMAR), announces the 2022 research career enrichment program involving seminar participation and mentoring in AD-relevant research. We invite applications from those interested in enhancing their knowledge of contextual factors in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD). Funds are available for investigator-initiated research projects that support the development of independent NIH-funded projects. Proposals with high likelihood of advancing research on ADRD disparities, especially among Arab Americans and Latinos, are particularly encouraged.

Next Deadline: January 21, 2022


National Science Foundation, Organismal Response to Climate Change

The world is currently undergoing unprecedented changes in global climates across all biomes, with effects on nearly every life-form. How organisms respond to these rapidly changing conditions will have large consequences for the distribution of species over space and time, the integrity and the composition of natural communities, the distribution and the yield of domesticated crops and animals, and the incidence and the severity of pathogen outbreaks. Consequences such as these are already having major impacts on the world's food security, the bioeconomy, and the ecosystem services provided by living systems to humans. Developing a comprehensive understanding of the mechanistic underpinnings of organismal response to climate change will improve our ability to predict and to mitigate maladaptive biological responses to rapidly changing environments and to facilitate organismal adaptation and persistence. Most climate change studies to date have lacked integration between the study of organismal mechanisms involved in the response to changing climates and eco-evolutionary approaches. This solicitation calls for proposals that integrate the study of genomic, physiological, structural, developmental, neural, or behavioral mechanisms of organismal response to climate change (ORCC) with eco-evolutionary approaches to better manage the effects of a rapidly changing climate on earth's living systems. Specific areas of emphasis include but are not limited to: integrating physiology and genomics into the next generation of species distribution models; mechanistic understanding of plastic responses to climate change; functional genomics of organismal response to climate change; the role biological interactions play in organismal responses to climate change; and improving our ability to predict how organisms will respond to climate change and the consequences these responses will have across biological scales.

Next Deadline: March 1, 2022


Internal Funding Programs

More information on Internal Funding Programs can be found on our website. Listed below are a programs with upcoming deadlines.



Contact ORDA Early When Planning a Proposal Submission

An early meeting with a pre-award specialist will help make sure you are meeting all of the sponsor requirements AND that you are on schedule to submit materials to ORDA in a timely fashion.  Our procedures can be found here on ORDA’s website (  An important point to note is that your proposal and related materials must get to ORDA at least 10 business days before the sponsor deadline.

Other than the inability to meet in-person, business continues as usual for us.  Please find the following contact information for the ORDA staff.  We are reachable by telephone during business hours, Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  You may also contact us through email or schedule a time to meet using teleconferencing or video call.
