Global Funding for Peace and Security Totaled $328 Million in 2016
Global philanthropic support for efforts to prevent, mitigate, and resolve conflicts totaled $328.2 million in 2016, a study by the Peace and Security Funders Group and Candid finds.
According to the 2019 edition of the Peace & Security Funding Index: An Analysis of Global Foundation Grantmaking, 326 foundations awarded more than 2,600 grants in support of peace and security efforts in 2016. The report notes that while the total is $23 million lower than the amount awarded in 2015, the decline can be attributed in part to the fact that Nationale Postcode Loterij and Cordaid, two of the largest grantmakers that shared their 2015 data, did not share data for 2016. Funding for peace and security remains insignificant relative to foundation funding overall, accounting for just 0.7 percent of the $32 billion given by foundations in Candid's 2016 FC 1000 data set.
The study analyzed grants in 24 issue areas across three categories - preventing and mitigating conflict, resolving conflict and building peace, and supporting stable, resilient societies - and found that the largest share of grant dollars in 2016 took the form of general support for stable, resilient societies ($78.8 million), followed by nuclear issues ($36.4 million) and gender equality ($28.2 million). Among the strategies that garnered the most support, policy, advocacy, and systems reform received 38 percent of grant dollars, while public education and research and evaluation received 18 percent and 16 percent, respectively. According to the report, about 70 percent of the peace and security grantmaking in 2016 includes a population focus, while funding for children/youth and women/girls each accounted for 14 percent of grant dollars and funding for migrants and refugees accounted for 8 percent, up from 5 percent in 2015.

PURPOSE: NIDA is interested in research that addresses research gaps related to PrEP and its use among substance users, with the goals of improving PrEP management and implementation. Current US Public Health Service PrEP guidelines recommend PrEP for people who inject drugs (PWID) and mention alcohol and illicit drug use as potential concerns for clinical management. Only one clinical trial has evaluated PrEP among PWID and systematic data regarding the broader use of PrEP among substance users are limited. There is a need to better understand the effects of substance use on PrEP effectiveness and better inform PrEP implementation among substance users. More systematic data are needed regarding the impact of substance use on PrEP management and adherence, along with investigating potential unintended consequences of PrEP use that may be unique to substance users such as changes in harm reduction practices, as well as substance use as a contributor to health risk behaviors with consequences such as increased occurrence of STIs.

Conquer Cancer Foundation Invites Applications for Oncology Young Investigator Award
SOURCE: Conquer Cancer Foundation (CCF)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 6/27/19.
$ AVAILABLE: A single grant of up to $50,000. 
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, applicants must be an American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) member, have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD, DO, or equivalent doctoral degrees) and be in the last year of his/her training or during the first two years of a faculty/staff appointment (if an academic institution) or first two years of employment (if a non-academic institution) at the time of proposal submission.

Foundation for Child Development Issues RFP for 2020 Young Scholars Program
SOURCE: Foundation for Child Development (FCD)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: The deadline for Letters of Intent is 6/10/19 at 3 pm EST.
$ AVAILABLE: Research awards are up to $225,000 for primary research and up to $180,000 for secondary data analysis.
ELIGIBILITY: Interested applicants must have received their doctoral degrees within one to nine years of the grant conferral date (and between one to 11 years for applicants with a Doctor of Medicine degree.)
PURPOSE: The Foundation for Child Development works to connect research to changes that continuously improve policy and practice that benefit young children.
To that end, FCD currently is accepting proposals for its 2020 Young Scholars Program (YSP). The YSP program funds implementation research that is policy and practice-relevant and examines the preparation, competency, compensation, well-being, and ongoing professional learning of the early care and education (ECE) workforce.
Research awards are up to $225,000 for primary research and up to $180,000 for secondary data analysis.
All proposed research must attempt to answer primary questions that are relevant to the ECE workforce and support scientific inquiry into the implementation of specific early care and education programs, policies, or practices. Implementation research provides the opportunity to engage in meaningful exploration of what works (or not), for whom, and under what conditions. In addition, all supported research must have a clear connection to policies and practices that have the potential to result in a positive impact on the ECE workforce and on young children in YSP’s priority populations.
Applicants need not be nominated to apply. The foundation regards diversity as an asset for building a strong and productive society and is committed to diversity and equity in scholarship and through its grantees. To increase the diversity of research perspectives, the foundation encourages applications from scholars who are from underrepresented groups that have historically experienced economic instability and social exclusion, including but not limited to researchers of color, first-generation college graduates; and researchers from low-income communities; and scholars who represent a variety of disciplines and methodological approaches.

Grants awarded through the program are not for specific research projects per se but rather to allow more research to be done. Preference will be given to institutions with high needs and low philanthropic support in geographical areas where St. Baldrick’s funds are raised, as well as institutions that do not currently receive other funding from the foundation.

Webinar - How to Win Support for Program Evaluation 
SPONSOR: The Chronicle of Philanthropy 
WHEN: June 20, 1 to 2 pm.

Join us for a one-hour session that will help you secure the support you need to prove your results. You’ll learn from a nonprofit practitioner who specializes in measurement and a grant maker who values evaluation – and invests in helping charities do this well.

Webinar - Getting Together at Federal Expense: How to Charge Federal Grants for Travel, Meetings, Conferences, Training, Participant Support and Employee Health, Morale and Welfare
SPONSOR: Federal Fund Management Advisor 
WHEN: June 11, 1 to 2:30 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: A few years ago, when news went viral about a wasteful conference sponsored by the General Services Administration in Las Vegas, the Office of Management and Budget immediately responded by placing restrictions on federal agencies’ travel and meeting expenses. In the recently revised cost principles for federal awards (2 CFR 200, Subpart E), OMB has devised some similar restrictions for federal grant recipients and subrecipients.
OMB’s numerous revised policies address:
* Travel. 
* Meeting expenses, including meals and incidentals. 
* Professional activity costs. 
* Training and education charges. 
* Membership fees. 
* Employee health, morale and welfare costs. 
* Participant support stipends and subsistence. 
* Entertainment.
There’s little question that these types of expenses, even if they don’t involve big dollars, are going to be on the radar screens of your independent auditors as well as those of federal auditors who might arrive at your door. So, it makes sense to take a careful look at the various cost categories involved, examine the nuances, and then fashion a solid strategy about whether and how to charge these costs. This webinar will help you do all that.
COST: $249. For more information and registration go to http://www.federalfundmanagement.com/1906GTA-CBIS?_zs=3R2oM1&_zl=8V375
