1. Welcome Angela to OSP! We would like to welcome Angela Mason as our new graduate assistant in the Office of Sponsored Programs! Angela attended Grand Valley as an undergraduate student, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2009. She returned to Grand Valley in 2011 and continues working toward a dual Master of Social Work and Master of Public Administration degree with a concentration in Nonprofit Management and Leadership. Angela is expecting to graduate in April of 2014. Angela enjoys working with a wide range of people. She is especially interested in policy issues and organizational dynamics. Angela will be supporting the research needs of the OSP staff as well as those of the Principal Investigators at GVSU. After graduation, Angela aspires to work within the nonprofit sector in the Grand Rapids area. She is excited about the graduate assistantship with OSP and feels it will help her learn much more about the process of grants and fund development in nonprofit management. Feel free to stop by the office and say hi!

3. Success Story

Johnson Center researcher gets grant to evaluate childhood obesity program, from GVNow, August, 8, 2013 Amber Erickson, a research manager at Grand Valley’s Johnson Center for Philanthropy, has been awarded a grant from Spectrum Health United Hospitals to fund a second year of research into the effectiveness of childhood obesity programs in rural West Michigan. The program is called the Spectrum Health Rural FitKids360, and is a federally-funded program through the Health Resources and Services Administration. The program aims to expand delivery of health care services in rural areas, specifically reducing childhood obesity in Montcalm, Newaygo, and Osceola counties. Erickson’s grant will allow the Johnson Center’s Community Research Institute to continue evaluating FitKids360’s progress toward its goals of improving weight status, decreasing screen time, and increasing physical activity and nutrition knowledge.

4. News Johnson Center relaunches, from GVNow, August 15, 2013 Grand Valley State University’s Johnson Center for Philanthropy is relaunching, an online portal that will serve as a clearinghouse of philanthropic knowledge, skill development, and research for foundations and those who work with philanthropy. The project, formerly operated by the Council on Foundations, has been on hiatus for the past year. The Johnson Center will soon be able to announce grants from several national foundations to support LearnPhilanthropy. The site is a forum for sharing knowledge about the practice of philanthropy. In addition to the site, the LearnPhilanthropy initiative will seek to build new knowledge through research and supporting online networks to foster knowledge sharing. Unlike other sites, LearnPhilanthropy is "by the field, for the field." It will be guided by a national advisory board of expert leaders and practitioners in philanthropy. The Johnson Center for Philanthropy is an ideal host for thanks to more than 20 years as a leading center on philanthropy in the United States. The Johnson Center has built a national reputation as a source of information and skill development for philanthropic professionals and nonprofit practitioners. Hosting at Grand Valley will help introduce the site to field academics, researchers, and students across the nation through the university’s leading role with the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, a national membership organization of 47 university-based centers supporting the work of philanthropy and nonprofits throughout the country. For more information on, contact Robert Shalett at or (202) 365-0273.

AWRI awarded grant to study bacteria in Silver Lake, from GVNow, August 23, 2013

Grand Valley State University’s Annis Water Resources Institute (AWRI) has been awarded more than $32,000 to assess the presence of a potentially toxic cyanobacterium (blue-green alga) in Silver Lake. Researchers at AWRI will monitor the presence and abundanceof Gloeotrichia, conduct experiments to determine what factors control its growth, and assess its toxicity. Silver Lake has suffered the past two years from outbreaks of Gloeotrichia, which can survive harsh Michigan winters by forming spores inthe sediment. The project will complement another study, being jointly conducted by AWRI and the US Geological Survey, to determine stressors to the lake and put into place best management practices to improve and protect the lake, according to the grant’s Principal Investigator, Al Steinman. The water quality monitoring grant was one of five awarded by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to universities, local governments, and nonprofit organizations. All five grants totaled $197,115, and were awarded to Grand Valley, the Eaton Conservation District, the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council, the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, and the Timberland Resource Conservation and Development organization.

5. Grants Resource Center News Senate Approves Increase for NSF, from GrantWeek, July 22, 2013 The U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations approved a spending bill that would increase National Science Foundation (NSF) spending by $186 million over current levels. This new legislation is part of an overall spending bill for several agencies that would make significant investments in federal science research programs, particularly in the physical sciences. Funds for NSF would increase to $7.4 billion, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology would see a boost of $141 million over its FY 13 spending level. According to a recent article in Inside Higher Education, funding levels in the Senate bill are significantly higher than the House, making a final compromise bill much harder to predict.

NIH To Require Tracking of Graduate and Undergraduate Students, from GrantWeek, August 5, 2013

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), in a move to improve data on NIH-supported graduate and undergraduate students, will soon require an Electronic Research Administration (eRA) Commons ID for all graduate and undergraduate students who participate in NIH-funded projects for at least one person month of effort or more. This information will need to be included on NIH Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPR). Beginning on October 18, 2013, a warning will be generated when an RPPR is submitted that lists individuals in a graduate or undergraduate student role who have not established an eRA Commons ID. Then, beginning on October 1, 2014, RPPRs lacking the eRA Commons ID for graduate and undergraduate students will receive an error and the RPPR will not be accepted by NIH. Sally Rockey, NIH’s deputy director of extramural research, wrote in her blog, We’ll be rolling this out in phases to give grantees and trainees time to register in eRA Commons and create a profile. Beginning August 15, 2013, undergrads and grad students will be able to create a personal profile in eRA Commons. For more information, contact Grants Info at 301/435-0714 or

AUTM Course—Best Practices in Small Technology Transfer Offices, from GrantWeek, August 12, 2013 The Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) is hosting a course of special interest to GRC members, “Successful Practices in Small Technology Transfer Offices,” in Dallas, Texas on October 23-24, 2013. The course will specifically address the challenges faced by campuses with limited resources. This course will be beneficial to those with an interest in starting a new technology transfer office or who already have a small office and would like to grow existing efforts dramatically. In addition, best practices will be shared to promote a sound response to the innovation agenda currently being advanced by federal and state governments, and the private sector. As a part of the partnership between AUTM and GRC, GRC members who are not AUTM members may register online for the meeting at member rates by using a discount code – AASCU13. If faxing or mailing in a registration form, just write in the code in the payment section. Meeting information and registration options are listed on the AUTM website.
