Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program
NOAA’s Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program provides support for master’s and doctoral degrees in oceanography, marine biology, maritime archaeology—these may include but are not limited to ocean and/or coastal: engineering, social science, marine education, marine stewardship, cultural anthropology, and resource management disciplines—and particularly encourages women and members of minority groups to apply.
r. Nancy Foster Scholarships may provide, subject to appropriations, yearly support of up to $42,000 per student (a 12-month stipend of $30,000 in addition to an education allowance of up to $12,000), and up to $10,000 of support for a 4-6 week program collaboration at a NOAA facility.
Masters students may be supported for up to two years, and doctoral students for up to four years. Depending on funding, approximately two to four scholarships are awarded each year.
Scholarships are distributed by disciplines, institutions and geography, and by degree sought, with selections within distributions based on financial need, the potential for success in a graduate level studies program (academic achievement), and the potential for achieving research and career goals.
Violet and Cyril Franks Scholarship
The APF Violet and Cyril Franks Scholarship supports graduate-level scholarly projects that use a psychological perspective to help understand and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. The scholarship helps address research that shows that stigma is a significant barrier to treatment and recovery for many of the 50 million Americans living with mental illness.
The amount of the scholarship is $1,000. The Franks Scholarship is made possible by the generosity of Violet Franks, Ph.D., and Cyril Franks, PhD.

Research Publication Grants in Engineering, Medicine and Science AAUW
Having a strong publication record is a key to receiving promotions and tenure in engineering, medicine and science. Yet persistent gender stereotypes and bias in these fields can make it difficult for women to find the time and institutional support needed to publish their research. These grants help women overcome these barriers by funding research projects that will culminate in scholarly publications.
They are open to women scholars conducting basic research in engineering, medicine or the physical or biological sciences and who have a doctorate degree in one of those fields. The grantee must publish their research in a scholarly publication and be listed as a primary author.
Garden Club Federation Of Maine
GCFM believes in the importance of education. The Garden Club Federation of Maine, GCFM Districts, and GCFM local garden clubs all promote horticulture education. Today's students will be the pioneers of tomorrow, guaranteeing the sustainability of the planet's natural resources. Applicants with majors in Horticulture, Floriculture, Landscape Design, Conservation, Forestry, Botany, Agronomy, Plant Pathology, Environmental Concerns, Ecology, Land Management, and/or other garden fields are encouraged to apply.

The intent is the assist in maintaining the high quality of student research and expedite the process in the final stages of the Ph.D. program.
If you are planning a more extensive study, apply to other sources of funding in addition to the Hester McLaws Scholarship. Other organizations, such as Sigma Theta Tau and the American Nurses Foundation, have small research grant programs.
There are no restrictions on allowable costs as long as they are directly related to the dissertation research, with the following exception: funds for computer analysis or other University services routinely available for students without charge must be used unless special requirements necessitate additional or different funds.
Funds are not provided for students who have accepted a position for full-time employment at another institution, even if they are working on their dissertations. You must be registered in order to receive reimbursements.
Robert S. McNamara Fellowships Program
The World BankRobert S. McNamara Fellowships Program (RSMFP) matches aspiring development economics researchers from developing countries with World Bank research economists creating unique opportunities for the fellows to participate in rigorous policy-relevant research in the World Bank’s Development Economics Vice Presidency (DEC). Fellows will be hosted at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. for 8 months (September to May each year) and work under the supervision of researchers in the World Bank’s Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) and Development Research Group departments, engaging in high-quality and policy-relevant research projects.
The RSMFP offers a competitive compensation, totaling $42,750 net of income taxes per fellow for an 8-month fellowship (paid in monthly installments). Since the fellows will be hosted at the World Bank in Washington D.C., the World Bank’s HR Operations unit will assist the selected candidates with their application for G4 visa.
Note: The fellowship does not cover travel expenses.
No than 35 years of age (by June 30th of the year the fellowship starts) .
Available to relocate to Washington, D.C. for the duration of the fellowship.
Applications for the fellowship are open annually between March and April for cohorts starting in September of the same year. The statement of research interests should describe research interests and indicate the research programs of interest within DEC. Fellowships will be awarded based on application materials and demonstrated skills in required software. Cohort formation will seek to achieve geographical and gender representation.

Policies and Guidelines for Including Biostatistics Support on Grants
The guidelines lay out common scenarios and are meant to serve as a starting point for discussion for planning and budgeting purposes. In all cases, discussion with Biostatistics faculty early in the grant preparation process is necessary to ensure that the appropriate level of support is provided.
PhD faculty and master’s statisticians can participate in grant development in numerous ways including
If Biostatistics effort in proposal development is not covered by funded projects, time spent on proposal development will be billed at the current hourly rate or MOU.
Inclusion of Biostatistics Personnel in Project Budgets
PhD faculty effort:Biostatistics faculty should be included as named co-investigators (typically as key personnel) on collaborative applications. While effort may vary from year to year, an average of 10% effort (1.2 calendar months per year) over the project period is suggested as a guideline for most clinical projects and more complex basic science projects (see effort allocation guidelines below). Faculty may not be included on budgets for less than 5% effort without the approval of the Chair of the Department of Biostatistics.
Master’s statistician effort: Master’s statisticians and data management personnel provide assistance with data management, statistical programming, and preparation of reports and manuscripts. For most funded projects, master’s statistician should be coupled with PhD faculty effort.
Effort Allocation Guidelines
These guidelines provide suggested levels of support for projects of varying complexity and need of statistical expertise.
Large or complex projects (e.g. multi-site clinical trials, cores for program projects or SPORES): Total biostatistics annual effort 50–100+% per year, such as 20% or more of PhD faculty time plus 30–100% master’s statistician FTE.
Regular Projects (e.g., R01 involving clinical data, basic science project with complex analysis (eg. Omics data)): Total biostatistics annual effort 20–50%, such as 10–15% PhD faculty time plus 10–35% master’s statistician FTE.
Simple Projects (e.g., project under 250K direct per year): Total biostatistics effort 5–20% per year, such as 5-10% PhD faculty time plus 5-10% master’s statistician FTE.
Limited Scope projects: Total biostatistics effort <5% per year
