Athabasca University has launched something called the 'MOOC Research Hub' in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Part of this is a call for research proposals on MOOCs - you can find the details here - funding research projects for between $10K-$25K. There is also a research evidence hub. Note that submission must agree to publish a paper under CC-by (I wonder why CC-NC wasn't allowed) and present the results at a conference in Texas (why Texas?). Also, recommended by Alastair Creelman, a good article on MOOC research by George Veletsianos, The research that MOOCs need.
