National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholars Grant for Nonfiction Authors & Journalists DEADLINE December 16

The Public Scholars program supports the creation of well-researched nonfiction books in the humanities written for the broad public. It does so by offering grants to individual authors for research, writing, travel, and other activities leading to publication. Writers with or without an academic affiliation may apply, and no advanced degree is required. The program is intended both to encourage non-academic writers to deepen their engagement with the humanities by strengthening the research underlying their books and to encourage academic writers in the humanities to communicate the significance of their research to the broadest possible range of readers. NEH especially encourages applications to this program from independent writers, researchers, scholars, and journalists.

Engineers: Designing solutions to enable people with disabilities to use automated vehicles DEADLINE October 30

Through the Inclusive Design Challenge, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) seeks innovative, inclusive design features to enable people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities to use automated vehicles, particularly ADS-dedicated vehicles (ADS-DV) that are operated exclusively at Levels 4 and 5 (see Notes on Terminology below for additional detail on terms used throughout this Challenge). Solutions must address one or more aspects of ADS-DV use – such as locating and entering an ADS-DV or interacting with the vehicle in routine and emergency situations – through physical hardware and/or human-machine interface (HMI) designs. Individuals and teams will compete for an overall prize purse of up to $5,000,000 in a two-stage competition.

Environmental Engineers: Guardians of the Reservoir Challenge DEADLINE October 20

The goal of this challenge is to find and demonstrate innovative solutions that remove or transport the amount of sediment building up in the reservoirs, replacing available space for water storage, that provide critical water supplies for the country. The build-up of sediment leaves less room for water, and less water means that our reservoirs eventually may not be able to meet the demand of the communities we serve. Such impacts have been experienced at some Reclamation reservoirs and are anticipated to occur more frequently in the future. Reclamation’s primary interest is in technology that will move sediment downstream at the average annual rate at which it would otherwise accumulate but approaches that can help regain lost reservoir capacity are of interest if they can do so in addition to meeting environmental and other performance criteria.

African American Intellectual History Society Call for Papers on “The West”–A Virtual Conference

“The West” is a significant, but ambivalent, concept in the diasporic Black experience. From a hegemonic perspective, imperial governments and white intellectuals have used the concept to demarcate the supposedly “civilized” from the “uncivilized,” and the modern from the pre-modern. Globally, it has been used to divide some ethnic and racial groups while coalescing others. “The West” is also a physical location, encompassing various regions, nations and states primarily in Europe, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and neighboring islands.

AAIHS welcomes individual proposals for abbreviated presentations (5-6 minutes) that consider “The West” from a variety of perspectives, including, but not limited to, gender, sexuality, religion, digital humanities, politics, class, popular culture, art, literature, and environmental justice. Each proposal will be considered for inclusion in one of the featured conference sessions, which will be scheduled remotely on March 19 or March 20, 2021.

EMT/EMS Certification Education in Bergen, Fairfield, Rockland and Westchester Counties

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics typically complete a postsecondary educational program. All states require EMTs and paramedics to be licensed; requirements vary by state.

Employment of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow 7 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations. Emergencies, such as car crashes, natural disasters, and acts of violence, will continue to require the skills of EMTs and paramedics.

Both a high school diploma or equivalent and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification typically are required for entry into postsecondary educational programs in emergency medical technology. Most of these programs are nondegree award programs that can be completed in less than 1 year; others last up to 2 years. Paramedics, however, may need an associate’s degree. Programs in emergency medical technology are offered by technical institutes, community colleges, universities, and facilities that specialize in emergency care training. Some states have EMR positions that do not require national certification. These positions typically require state certification.

NOTE: In many states you can start training for EMT/EMS as early as age 16!

SUNY Empire Launches Groundbreaking Program to Expand College Access by Becoming an Autism-Supportive College

SUNY Empire State College launched the statewide Center for Autism Inclusivity to make SUNY Empire a fully autism-supportive college and meet the growing demand for professionals working with children and adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

Despite the growing number of students with autism who seek a college degree, there is a scarcity of higher education programs to fully support students with ASD. SUNY Empire’s new Center for Autism Inclusivity, in partnership with Anderson Center for Autism, will also educate SUNY Empire faculty and staff on autism and how to meet the needs of students with autism in face-to-face and online environments. The new training coupled with SUNY Empire’s nation-leading individualized education model will greatly expand educational opportunity for individuals with ASD.

The Center for Autism Inclusivity will also work with high schools throughout New York state to identify qualified students with ASD to enroll at SUNY Empire, as the college is expanding its offerings and services to meet the needs of these students. In addition to providing personalized, one-on-one in-person instruction under the new program, there is currently no college that offers additional support for students with autism in fully online programs.
