Watershed management, international cultural preservation and research into alcohol use disorders top the list of grant funding announcements this week.
Grassroots organizations can receive funding to manage watershed projects in most western states under the Bureau of Reclamation's cooperative watershed management program. Large grant programs to fund cultural preservation activities in Nigeria has also opened, along with smaller grant programs for cultural activities in Belgium, Moldova and Hong Kong.
Finally, a National Institutes of Health grant will fund research into a variety of topics within the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. This isn't the only funding opportunity for health research. Several other opportunities opened this week for caregiver symptoms, digital dentistry and an education partnership through the Fogarty International Center R25 program.
