Funding And Support

Over the years, this effort has benefited from generous support from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Education Testing Service. We have also enjoyed productive collaborations with  the National Academies of Sciences, American Society for Cell Biology, The American Society of Plant Biologists, American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Long Island University. In September 2013, a NIGMS T36 MARC grant from the National Institutes of Health  was awarded to Long Island University that will provide long term support.

Grant will Support the Following

Organize conferences that will provide: a) a venue for dissemination of interventions research and related training; b) opportunities for researchers/practitioners to interact and collaborate; c) a mechanism for discourse on research-based interventions’ implementation across modalities, stages, and venues. A monograph will be published that captures the proceedings of each annual conference.
An enhanced and interactive Understanding Interventions website that will: a) facilitate linkages among members of the understanding interventions (UI) community; and b) feature an accessible and searchable internet-based annotated database of Interventions articles and other resources. This will expand the dissemination of broadening participation research.
An online/email-based publication that distills and disseminates research findings, development opportunities, and general announcements to provide an additional platform for growth of the Understanding Interventions community. Social/behavioral sciences, student affairs, and professional societies and organizations such as the American Association of University Professors, American Association of State Colleges and Universities, and Association of American Universities that influence higher education will be added to the annual conference list and receive the newsletter.
