Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE)
" As the sponsor of the GetEdFunding website, CDW-G’s mission is to help educators and institutions to uncover the funds they need to supplement shoestring budgets, expand innovative programs, prepare students for the increasingly complex skills they’ll need to participate in tomorrow’s workforce and help close the equity gap in educating students from all backgrounds and circumstances."

Global Gateway Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve as a scientific, social, and philanthropic catalyst tfor the healing, wellness, and dignity and integration of global humanity.

The foundation's primary area of interest is in new technologies emerging in the field of health and healing, especially current and emerging "subtle energy" technologies that support greater physical, mental, and spiritual integration; application of new discoveries in the "hard sciences" (physics, mathematics, electronics, engineering, network modeling, biophysics, and materials science) to healing modalities; the underlying dynamics of energy-based health and wellness disciplines such as Network Spinal Analysis Care, Somato Respiratory Integration, traditional chiropractic care, acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, and similar approaches; how these dynamics may lead to new understandings and/or directions for basic research in the hard sciences and the social sciences (e.g., organizational development, increased understanding of the integral and core nature of individuals, and reorganizational strategies that support greater personal and social integration and harmony); and methods for evaluating the impact and outcomes of these new understandings when applied to health and wellness, industrial applications, and society.

Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study- Fellowship Program - Harvard University
The Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program is a scholarly community where individuals pursue advanced work across a wide range of academic disciplines, professions, and creative arts. Radcliffe Institute fellowships are designed to support scholars, scientists, artists, and writers of exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishment who wish to pursue work in academic and professional fields and in the creative arts. In recognition of Radcliffe’s historic contributions to the education of women and to the study of issues related to women, the Radcliffe Institute sustains a continuing commitment to the study of women, gender, and society. Applicants’ projects need not focus on gender, however. Women and men from across the United States and throughout the world, including developing countries, are encouraged to apply. We seek to build a community of fellows that is diverse in every way. Former fellows of the Radcliffe Institute (1999 to present) are not eligible to apply.
