Black Faculty and Staff Association Community Outreach

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, the BFSA's Outreach Committee is sponsoring a day of volunteering at St. Francis Academy (501 E. Chase St.) on Monday, Jan. 15. Volunteers are needed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. for registration, meal service and preparation, assistance in the child-care center, traffic control/guides and for setup and breakdown. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.

To volunteer, contact Lori at [email protected] or Debbie at [email protected] with your name, e-mail address, phone number and the time you would like to begin volunteering. Volunteers must be high school age or older.


Vietnam-Era Oral History Project

The Department of History's spring course about the Vietnam era will have a co-requisite media lab where students will produce a variety of projects including oral history interviews.

The department needs to identify local people — preferably Johns Hopkins affiliates — who have had experiences either in the military or as a war protester during that time so that students can learn and practice recording oral histories. Interviews will take place in one week in either February or March. For more information, e-mail [email protected].


Cancer Research Grants

The American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant program provides seed money for the initiation of new projects by independent junior investigators so they may obtain preliminary results that will enable them to compete successfully for national research grants. Grants are for one year and cannot exceed $30,000 (direct costs only); the grants are primarily for research supplies and technical services. Applications will be accepted only from full-time, tenure-track JHU faculty members at the ranks of instructor and assistant professor or equivalent who are within six years of their first independent research or faculty appointment.

Guidelines, details for proposal preparation and submission, and the required application form are available at funding.htm#jhu-coordinated.

Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. on March 1. Submit an original and 11 copies to Grace Bigelow, Research Projects Administration, Suite W400, Wyman Park Building. Awards will be announced in April with a July 1 start date.
