Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship
https://www.fractracker.org/get-involved/sentinel-award/
FracTracker Alliance
FracTracker Alliance created the Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship to honor environmental heroes protecting their communities from the harms of the oil and gas industry - from fracking wells to pipelines to export terminals.
Each Community Sentinel awardee will receive $1,000 and will be recognized at an evening reception in the fall hosted by FracTracker and some amazing sponsors and partners. The deadline to nominate a community sentinel for this year's prestigious award is September 14, 2018.

Caregiver Conference Support Awards
https://sites.google.com/view/agubiogeoearlycareer/home/caregiver-support-grant
AGU
The purpose of these awards is to support student and early career members affiliated with the Biogeosciences section who face challenges in attending the Fall Meeting due to expenses directly related to their responsibilities as the primary caregiver for a child or other dependent. Each grant of $500 can be used toward conference attendance or caregiving expenses such as daycare costs during the conference, flight expenses of the dependent accompanying the awardee to the conference, or temporary caregiver fees related to conference attendance.
For these awards, early career is defined as either currently a student or less than ten years since earning their last degree. Time spent not working actively in a scientific field (for example, time away from scientific work due to family responsibilities) does not count toward the ten year limit. In this case, include an explanation in the CV and/or statement.
September 7, 2018
Applicants who have already applied for a student travel award to the 2018 Fall Meeting can also apply for a caregiver support award. But recipients will not be awarded both a student travel award and a Caregiver support award at the same meeting.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Scholarship
http://barudolphfoundation.org/stem-scholarship/
B.A. Rudolph Foundation
The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Scholarship is intended for female undergraduate students preparing to enter a profession in the sciences, who are applying to or have secured an unpaid or underpaid summer position (internship, fellowship, research assistantship, etc.) in a related field.

Applicants must be rising juniors, seniors, or be recent college graduates (graduated no more than 10 months from the application deadline). There is no requirement regarding the applicant’s major or focus of study, as long as the summer position focuses on STEM. Positions can be of any type (internship, fellowship, research assistantship, etc.) and take place in a variety of environments (i.e. research lab or project, nonprofit organization, hospital/clinic, etc.), as long as the position is unpaid or underpaid and directly related to the sciences. The summer position may be located anywhere in the United States or territories. We anticipate accepting four applicants each year as scholarship recipients, or “scholars.” This number may be adjusted according to the volume of applications received.

The intention of the scholarship is to cover the cost of living and some travel expenses for those who otherwise would not be able to afford such an opportunity. Applicants must therefore demonstrate financial need in their application.

The financial award consists of $1,600 per month (4 weeks) for the length of the individual’s summer position, and therefore will be calculated for each accepted scholar. Each scholar is assigned at least one mentor to lend guidance on entering and navigating her profession. Additionally, the Foundation will informally connect the scholar with others that we feel would be useful contacts outside of the assigned mentor(s), as another opportunity for networking within her chosen profession or interest.

The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principle of diversity in all areas. In that spirit, we are particularly dedicated to reaching applicants from a broad spectrum of qualified people. Applicants with diverse backgrounds, experiences, ability and perspectives are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must be rising juniors, seniors, or be recent college graduates (graduated no more than 10 months from the application deadline). There is no requirement regarding the applicant’s major or focus of study, as long as the summer position focuses on STEM. Positions can be of any type (internship, fellowship, research assistantship, etc.) and take place in a variety of environments (i.e. research lab or project, nonprofit organization, hospital/clinic, etc.), as long as the position is unpaid or underpaid and directly related to the sciences.
The summer position may be located anywhere in the United States or territories.

Clinton School of Public Service Master of Public Service (MPS) degree
http://barudolphfoundation.org/clinton-school-of-public-service/
B.A. Rudolph Foundation
Founded in 2004, the Clinton School of Public Service is the first program in the country to offer a Master of Public Service (MPS) degree. Located on the grounds of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, their mission is “to educate and prepare professionals in public service who understand, engage and transform complex social, cultural, economic and political systems to ensure equity, challenge oppression and effect positive social change.” The curriculum for this two-year degree includes both classroom and hands-on learning, with students participating in public service projects throughout Arkansas, the United States, and the world.

The B.A. Rudolph Scholarship at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service is a $12,000 scholarship awarded annually to a woman who is a rising-second year student and best embodies the mission and values of the Foundation. The purpose of the scholarship is to alleviate the cost of an advanced degree by paying the full tuition for one year, as well as living expenses and funds for professional development.

The B.A. Rudolph Foundation partners with the Clinton School to honor the organization’s namesake B.A. Rudolph (University of Arkansas, Class of 1978), her deep roots in her native Arkansas, her long time professional commitment to former President Clinton, and the mission of the school as a center dedicated to public service and future leaders. Rebecca Davis and Maggie Moore announced the creation of the scholarship on February 21, 2015, during their participation in the Clinton School Speaker Series. President Clinton, addressing the entire student body, announced the first recipient of the B.A. Rudolph Scholarship on March 27, 2015.
First year Clinton School students may apply for the B.A. Rudolph Scholarship through the portal below starting February 1 annually.

Sponsorship and Grants fund
http://barudolphfoundation.org/sponsorships-and-grants/
B.A. Rudolph Foundation
In 2016, the B.A. Rudolph Foundation expanded its support of women by creating a Sponsorship and Grants fund. This fund supports people, organizations, groups, events, projects or programs that are consistent with the mission and values of the B.A. Rudolph Foundation (provided they are used in accord with the Foundation’s Bylaws, see below). How does the program benefit women and/or the community?

Requests can be submitted year-round and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. There is no funding minimum or maximum. We do not fund sponsorship or grant proposals for costs related to tuition or internships, as we currently support those efforts through our Undergraduate Public Service, Graduate Public Service, STEM, and Clinton School of Public Service scholarship opportunities. We also do not accept study abroad or travel abroad requests.

Early Career Women Scientists (ECWS) Fellowships
https://twas.org/opportunity/owsd-early-career-women-scientists-fellowship
Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD)
The Early Career Women Scientists (ECWS) fellowship is a prestigious award of up to USD 50,000 offered to women who have completed their PhDs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and are employed at an academic or scientific research institute in one of the eligible Science and Technology Lagging Countries (STLCs). ECWS fellows will be supported to continue their research at an international level while based at their home institutes, to build up research groups that will attract international visitors, and to initiate collaborations and partnerships with industry and the private sector.

The ECWS fellowship is for two years. It provides funding for a wide range of expenses, including equipment, consumables, research visits, exchanges and programmes, teaching and assistance, information resources, product development and linking with industry, outreach, communications and networking, and other expenses. The fellowship does not provide for the fellow’s salary which must be guaranteed by the fellow’s institute. However, the ECWS fellowship can be used to cover the costs of assistance to the fellow for teaching duties not directly related to the fellow’s research in order for the fellow to focus on carrying her own research forward to an international standard.

In addition to the research grant, fellows will also attend two expenses-paid training workshops on leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

Autism Science Foundation Pre- and Postdoctoral Training Awards & Medical Student Gap Year Research Training Awards
https://autismsciencefoundation.org/what-we-fund/apply-for-a-fellowship/
Autism Science Foundation
The Autism Science Foundation invites applications for its Pre- and Postdoctoral Training Awards from graduate students, medical students and postdoctoral fellows interested in pursuing careers in basic and clinical research relevant to autism spectrum disorders. The proposed training should be scientifically linked to autism but may be broadened to include training in a closely related area of scientific research. The Autism Science Foundation will make a number of awards determined by its available financial resources.
Autism Science Foundation will consider all areas of related basic and clinical research including but not limited to: human behavior across the lifespan (language, learning, behavior, communication, social function, motor skills & planning, epilepsy, sleep, repetitive disorders), neurobiology (anatomy, development, neuroimaging), pharmacology, behavioral intervention, neuropathology, genetics and gene/environment interactions, epigenetics, genomics, epigenomics, immunology, molecular and cellular mechanisms, studies employing model organisms and systems, and studies of treatment and service delivery.
Applicants for predoctoral awards must be enrolled students in good standing in a program leading to a research doctorate such as a Ph.D. or Sc.D. or a dual degree such as an M.D./Ph.D. in an academic department at an accredited university or health/medical institution. Applicants for Medical School Gap Year Research Training Awards should be enrolled at an accredited university medical school. Medical school applicants must apply prior to graduation from medical school but the gap year may be taken immediately after graduation. Applicants for postdoctoral awards must have completed their doctoral or medical degree and have been accepted as a postdoctoral fellow in good standing in a program as of the award start date. Pre- and postdoctoral applicants may apply at any point during their training. The fellow may work on a project that extends out past the funding period, however, there must be specific goals and accomplishments stated as part of the one-year fellowship. The selected awardee also must spend 80% of his/her professional time engaged exclusively in the autism research activities stipulated in the application for the duration of the award, and cannot simultaneously hold another fellowship award during the support period.
U.S. citizens enrolled in universities inside or outside of the United States are eligible to apply. Non-US citizens enrolled in universities based inside or outside of the U.S. are also eligible to apply.

HARVARD SOUTH AFRICA FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
https://africa.harvard.edu/south-africa-fellowship-program
Harvard University
President Derek Bok established the Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program (HSAFP) in 1979 to address the needs of South Africans who were denied access to advanced education by the apartheid system. This program was established, and is still intended, for mid-career professionals educationally disadvantaged by past laws and resource allocations in South Africa. Under the current presidency of Drew Gilpin Faust, the HSAFP seeks to expand its reach to institutions and organizations across South Africa in a continued effort to draw the broadest possible range of candidates for the program. In addition, the University – reflecting the current South African constitution – has expanded its applicant pool to extend to all South Africans, regardless of ethnicity or race.

Fellows are selected because they have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields, and are expected to benefit from advanced training. Fellowships are for a year of study in one of Harvard’s Professional Schools or Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, with tuition waivers provided by the School once fellows are admitted. General administrative funds for program management, stipends, and airfare for the fellow are provided by the Office of the President, and administered by the Center for African Studies, under the directorship of Professor John Mugane. Since the inception of the Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program, the Center for African Studies has awarded over 200 fellowships.

The HSAFP was conceived largely to provide educational enrichment for men and women in mid-career, that is, individuals in various occupations who have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields and leadership and are expected to benefit from advanced training. Thus candidates who have just completed, or who have not yet completed, a first degree are not selected unless this degree has been pursued concurrently with, or subsequent to, experience in the workplace. Fellows usually range in age from 30 to 45 years.
Fellows must be South African citizens.
April every year
The fellowship provides for payment of all tuition for the full period of enrollment at Harvard. The fellowship also funds the round-trip airfare between the fellow’s home and Boston, as well as a monthly stipend. Fellows typically elect to stay in University graduate dormitories. Please note that housing costs in the Boston/Cambridge area are extremely high, and the stipend only covers bare necessities. The monthly stipend must also be used to pay for other expenses such as medical and dental insurance, medicines, taxes, food, winter clothing, books and supplies. Fellows are held personally responsible for the payment of all bills other than tuition fees and airfare. Please be advised that Harvard will require fellows to purchase American medical insurance. This insurance does not cover the range of services covered in South Africa. Separate insurance must be purchased for dental coverage. Charges for non-covered expenses and prescription drugs are very high.
