Synopsis The goal of the Archaeology Program is to fund research which furthers anthropologically relevant archaeological knowledge. In accordance with the National Science Foundation’s mission such research has the potential to provide fundamental scientific insight. While within the broad range of “archaeology” the focus is on projects judged to be significant from an anthropological perspective, the Program sets no priorities based on time period, geographic region or specific research topic. The Program administers four competitions. It also supports projects submitted under NSF-wide competition guidelines. These include CAREER, EAGER, RAPID and Research Experiences for Undergraduates Supplement requests.

National Webinar

Date: October 13, 2015

Time: 3:00 p.m. ET / 2:00 p.m. CT / 1:00 p.m. MT / 12:00 p.m. PT

Duration: 90 minutes


State-, tribe-, and jurisdiction-level SAMHSA substance use prevention Grantees and their sub-recipient communities, including National Prevention Network representatives, Single State Agency representatives, project directors, training and technical assistance providers, community-level prevention practitioners, and SAMHSA staff or Fellows.


When working to prevent substance misuse among college populations, getting campus support for campus-based data collection and prevention efforts is key. This event will explore options for accessing both secondary and primary data for this population, as well as approaches for engaging key data-keepers, including college administrators, in these efforts.


Chuck Klevgaard, BSW, CPS currently oversees the CAPT’s Central Resource Team and delivers services to 10 states and five tribes. He previously served as a consultant to the U.S. Department of Education’s Higher Education Center for Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Violence Prevention, and has moderated a series of national webinars on preventing binge drinking among adolescents, young adults, and college populations.


Tracy Tlumac, Ed.D., CAPT Associate, has more than a decade of experience working on campus substance abuse issues. As the former Associate Director of the U.S. Department of Education’s Higher Education Center for Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Violence Prevention, she conducted skills-building trainings, and assisted campus prevention professionals in assessing their prevention needs, developing and implementing strategic plans, and translating effective research into best practices for their campuses and surrounding communities.

Certificates of Attendance

Registered participants who attend the live webinar can request a certificate of attendance for 1.5 hours.  We invite participants to submit these certificates to the substance abuse prevention credentialing board in their state, tribe, or jurisdiction. Please note that it is up to the individual credentialing board to determine if these hours are acceptable for professional credentialing or re-certification. To request a certificate, contact Molly Lowe, National and Cohort-Based Services Manager for SAMHSA’s CAPT,

Synopsis SYNOPSIS:

National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) invites applications for a phased research approach to strengthen our understanding and utilization of the underlying mechanisms and processes associated with mind and body interventions. This FOA will support two-phased research applications to (1) uncover the underlying biological, neurological, physiological, and/or behavioral mechanisms or processes relevant to mind and body interventions (e.g. meditation, spinal manipulation, massage, yoga, tai chi, hypnosis, acupuncture) and then, (2) to utilize the results from the initial phase to improve, refine, enhance, or strengthen the identified mechanisms or processes through either rigorous validation and refinement of the intervention, or using combined approaches that, together, will modulate the underlying mechanism or process. This second phase should also be able to provide preliminary evidence that the mechanism or process modulated by the intervention is associated with a functional outcome or clinical benefit for a specific condition or disorder. The first phase in the form of an R61 will provide funding for up to two years to support hypothesis-driven pilot testing and assessment of an intervention’s mechanisms of action. The second phase in the form of an R33 will provide up to three years of support for the larger scale validation and/or optimization incorporating the initial findings. Subject to the availability of funds, transition from the R61 to the R33 phase of the award will be administratively reviewed and determined by successful completion of the “Go/No-Go Criteria” that need to be clearly specified in the R61 phase. This FOA is not appropriate for clinical trials with the primary objectives to determine efficacy or effectiveness. The ultimate goal of this R61/R33 funding mechanism is to facilitate the direct translation of basic mechanistic research to clinical application. This FOA will use the NIH R61/R33 Phased Innovation Award mechanism.
