New Study Finds Returns on Educational Endowments Improved in FY 2013
The endowments of 835 U.S. colleges and universities returned an average of 11.7 percent, net of fees, in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2013, up significantly from the previous year's return of -0.3 percent, a report from the Commonfund Institute and the National Association of College and University Business Officers finds.
According to the 2013 NACUBO-Commonfund Study of Endowments, educational endowments of various sizes averaged similar rates of return, ranging from to 11.4 percent for institutions with assets between $25 million and $50 million to 12 percent for those with assets between $501 million and $1 billion. By comparison, average returns by endowment size varied widely in FY 2012, from -1.0 percent to 0.8 percent. As for longer-term trends, the smallest endowments, those with assets under $25 million, averaged the highest returns over three (10.6 percent) and five (4.9 percent) years, while the largest endowments, those with assets of more than $1 billion, recorded the highest returns over ten years (8.3 percent).
In terms of asset class, domestic equities generated the highest average return, 20.6 percent, in FY2013, followed by international equities (14.6 percent), alternative strategies (8.3 percent), fixed-income investments (1.7 percent), and short-term securities, cash, and other investments (1.2 percent). The survey also found that allocations to alternative strategies remained relatively stable at 53 percent, down just 1 percentage point from the previous year, while several large institutions significantly increased their allocations to private equity.
"The strong overall performance by endowments is encouraging at a time when the global economy continues its relatively slow recovery from the economic crisis of five years ago," said Commonfund Institute executive director John S. Griswold. "This year's investment results reflect in large measure the strength in publicly traded equities that has prevailed since early 2009. While larger endowments have performed better over the longer-term ten-year period, smaller endowments with higher allocations to domestic equities have done well in the shorter term — a result that has enabled them to continue to support their educational missions."

National Competition for Biomedical Researchers
SOURCE: Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 6/3/14.
$ AVAILABLE: Once selected, HHMI provides each investigator with a full salary, benefits, and a research budget for their initial five-year appointment. The institute also will cover other expenses, including the purchase of critical equipment.
ELIGIBILITY: Successful candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. or equivalent degree; have a tenured or tenure-track position as assistant professor or higher academic rank (or the equivalent) at an eligible institution in the U.S.; have more than five but no more than 15 years of post-training, professional experience; and be the principal investigator on one (or more) active, national, peer-reviewed research grants with a duration of at least three years.
PURPOSE: The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has issued a call for applications from basic researchers and physician scientists for research positions. The initiative represents an investment of approximately $150 million in basic biomedical research over the next five years.
Through this national competition, HHMI seeks to appoint up to twenty-five new researchers who study significant biological problems in the biomedical disciplines, including plant biology and related fields such as evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology. Individual researchers selected through the competition will receive a five-year appointment to HHMI, which is renewable pending favorable scientific review.
By employing scientists as HHMI investigators — rather than awarding them research grants — the institute is guided by the principle of “people, not projects.” HHMI investigators have the freedom to explore and, if necessary, to change direction in their research. Moreover, they have support to follow their ideas through to fruition — even if that process takes many years.
All semifinalists will be expected to attend a scientific symposium at HHMI in April 2015 and present a brief research talk to HHMI scientific leadership and a final advisory panel. Finalists will be selected shortly after the scientific symposium.

Public Health Law Research (PHLR): Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health
SOURCE: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 4/15/14.
$ AVAILABLE: Grants will range up to $150,000 each for a period of up to eighteen months. Mapping studies - legal research that creates a multijurisdictional dataset of laws suitable for quantitative research - will also be considered, but budgets for these mapping projects should not exceed $50,000 or 12 months duration.
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories. Preference will be given to organizations that are either public entities or tax-exempt nonprofit organizations.
PURPOSE: Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, seeks to build the evidence for and strengthen the use of regulatory, legal, and policy solutions to improve public health. To help achieve this goal, PHLR is inviting applications from nonprofit research institutions for qualitative or quantitative research studies related to the development, implementation, mechanisms of action, or health effects of specific laws or regulations.
Studies should focus on the intersection of law and public health but may draw on a range of other disciplines, including medicine, economics, engineering, sociology, psychology, and public policy and administration. However, the primary focus of the study should be a law or policy and its influence on public health. Special consideration will be given to projects that incorporate innovative approaches such as experimental designs and simulations, the use of biological measures as outcome variables, mixed qualitative-quantitative studies, and/or the application of cutting-edge econometric and time-series models. Economic analysis as an evaluation component or as the main study design is also encouraged to demonstrate the fiscal case and demonstrate value for public health law.
Research teams that combine legal expertise with strong research design and statistical competence are particularly encouraged.
Studies that focus primarily on the healthcare system, healthcare delivery or financing, or preventing childhood obesity will not be considered.
