Funding Opportunities

After the jump, please see new funding opportunities. These are in two groups--Limited Submission Announcements, and Non-Limited Opportunities. If you are interested in the limited submission opportunities, please contact me or a member of the College's research office staff as soon as possible. And one other note: The "S" in "STEM" usually includes social scientists at NSF!

Limited Submission Announcements

These programs are those that limit the number of applications that the university can submit. If you are interested in applying to one of these programs, please fill out the "Notification of Interest" form linked below. Only those who fill out the form by the deadline will be eligible to participate in internal competitions. To view the Limited Submission Calendar, go here

This program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative approaches to STEM graduate education training. The program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master's and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers.
Limit: Two per organization (whether as lead or partner institution)
Internal due date:  Notification of interest: 8/17/17Agency due date: Full Proposal: 10/25/17

The goal of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to advance the field of population dynamics research by increasing research impact, innovation, and productivity; developing junior scientists; and maximizing the efficiency of research support.
Limit: One per institution
Internal due date:  Notification of interest: 8/17/17Agency due date: LOI: 10/27/17; Full Application: 11/27/17

This program is an alliance-based program. The program's theory is based on the Tinto model for student retention. The overall goal of the program is to assist universities and colleges in diversifying the nation's science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce by increasing the number of STEM baccalaureate and graduate degrees awarded to populations historically underrepresented in these disciplines.
Limit: 1 in each eligible category, as lead or partner
Internal due date:  Notification of interest: 8/31/17Agency due date: 11/17/171/26/18, depending on category

This program drives discovery and learning in the core CISE disciplines of the three participating CISE divisions by supporting the creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure that will support focused research agendas in computer and information science and engineering. This infrastructure will enable CISE researchers to advance the frontiers of CISE research. 
Limit: 3 Institutional Infrastructure proposals (No limit on Community Infrastructure proposals)Internal due date:  Notification of interest: 10/19/17Agency due date: Full proposal: 1/11/18

Non-Limited Funding Opportunities

National Research Council: Research Associateship Programs
The NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U.S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions.
Agency due date: Next deadline 11/1/17
