Funding Opportunities: 07/11/2016
Selected Funding Opportunities:
NSF Focused Research Groups in the Mathematical Sciences (FRGMS) The purpose of the Focused Research Group activity is to support collaborative groups employing innovative methods to solve specific, major research challenges in the mathematical sciences. A major challenge is an outstanding problem of significant importance that requires the focused and synergistic efforts of a collaborative group to solve, and whose solution will have wide impacts in the mathematical sciences and potentially in other areas. Groups may include, in addition to statisticians and mathematicians, researchers from other science and engineering disciplines appropriate for the proposed research. Risky projects are welcome. Interdisciplinary projects are welcome. Deadline: September 27
NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Exploring Mechanisms to Enhance the Economic and Societal Impacts of Fundamental Advances in Information and Communications Technologies CISE and SBE invite principal investigators to submit proposals for community workshops and EArly-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) that will explore one of the different approaches outlined above to promote the definition, development, rigorous evaluation and adoption of ICT-enabled solutions to societal challenges. Deadline: On-going.
DOD-AFOSR Research Interests of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research AFOSR solicits proposals for basic research through this general BAA outlining the U.S. Air Force Defense Research Sciences Program. The focus is on research areas that offer significant and comprehensive benefits to our national warfighting and peacekeeping capabilities. These areas are organized and managed in two scientific Branches: Engineering and Information Sciences and Physical and Biological Sciences. This BAA remains open until superseded.
USDA-NIFA Professional Development Delivery Model for Dept. of Defense Education Activity Leadership Dept. of Defense Schools NIFA requests applications for the this program for FY16 to develop a high-quality, dynamic professional development delivery model for Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) leadership worldwide. The primary project objective for this project is to develop a high-quality, dynamic, effective professional learning delivery model and resources for DoDEA Leadership, including content development, delivery, evaluation and an aligned comprehensive program improvement and assessment process. Deadline: August 5
EPA Research Training Program for College and University Students EPA seeks applications from entities to enter into cooperative agreements with EPA that will provide training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students on-site at EPA research facilities located in Cincinnati, OH. It is envisioned that the training program will increase both the effectiveness and number of future environmental scientists. The training received under the mentorship of EPA scientists will complement the trainees’ academic coursework. The recipient will be responsible for ensuring that the training projects are supportive of the trainees’ academic training. Deadline: August 16
NARA Fellowships The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation offers competitive research fellowships and grants every year to scholars and students who wish to make use of the archival holdings (including audiovisual materials) of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. Candidates may apply for only one fellowship in a given year. Deadline: August 15
Preproposals and rankings to the EVPRP should be e-mailed to EVPRPlimited@purdue.edu. Purdue’s open limited submission competitions, limited submission policy, and templates for preproposals may be found at http://www.purdue.edu/research/funding-and-grant-writing/limited-submissions.php. For any case in which the number of preproposals received is no more than the number of proposals allowed by the sponsor, the EVPRP will notify the PI(s) that an internal competition will be unnecessary.
