Funding Opportunities: 11/12
Selected Funding Opportunities:
NSF Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation – S2I2 S2I2 awards will focus on the establishment of long-term hubs of excellence in software infrastructure and technologies that will serve a research community of substantial size and disciplinary breadth. Conceptualization Awards are planning awards aimed at organizing an interdisciplinary community and understanding their software requirements and challenges. Only Conceptualization Awards will be made in FY13. Deadline: February 4
L’Oreal USA Fellowships for Women in Science This national program annually recognizes and provides support to five women postdoctoral researchers in the U.S. who are pursuing careers in the life and physical/material sciences, as well as mathematics, engineering and computer science. the U.S. Fellowships aim to: 1) Raise awareness of the contribution of women to the sciences; and 2) Identify exceptional female researchers in the U.S. to serve as role models for younger generations. Deadline: December 20
Letters of intent, preproposals, and rankings to the OVPR should be e-mailed to OVPRlimited@purdue.edu. Purdue's open limited submission competitions, limited submission policy, and template for letters of intent may be found at http://www.purdue.edu/research/vpr/rschdev/lsid1.php. For any case in which the number of internal letters of intent received is no more than the number of proposals allowed by the sponsor, the OVPR will notify the PI that an internal preproposal will be unnecessary.
Limited Submission: NSF Climate Change Education Partnership Alliance Office (CCEPA Office) In FY 2012, NSF funded six Phase II Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP-II) projects. The PI's, Co-PI's and significant partners of the six CCEP-II projects constitute the CCEP "network". The lead PI's for the six projects comprise the CCEP Alliance, which will convene on a regular basis in order to identify common needs and opportunities for collaboration across the CCEP network. Key to the success of this networked approach is the creation of a CCEP Alliance Office, which will: facilitate communication among the projects participating within the CCEP-II network; enable and nurture cross-project coordination and collaboration, such as assisting with data collection for a program-wide evaluation undertaken by NSF; and, support dissemination of resources developed by the CCEP-II network to the larger scientific community and the public. The CCEPA Office is also expected to foster coordination of CCEP-II activities with the larger climate change education community. For this opportunity, Purdue is limited to one application.
