14-1 Air Force Fiscal Year 2010 Young Investigator Research Program (DOD)

The AFOSR's Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) is to support scientists and engineers who have received Ph.D. or equivalent degrees in the last five years (on or after 1 May 2004) and who show exceptional ability and promise for conducting basic research. The objective of this program is to foster creative basic research in science and engineering, enhance early career development of outstanding young investigators, and increase opportunities for the young investigators to recognize Air Force mission and the related challenges in science and engineering. Proposals addressing the research areas of interest for the Air Force Research Laboratory will be considered. AFOSR-BAA-2009-2 (GG 4/3/09)

Deadline: 7/28/2009

14-2 NSF Graduate Stem Fellows In K-12 Education (GK-12) (NSF)

This program provides funding for graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines to bring their leading research practice and findings into K-12 learning settings. Through collaborations with other graduate fellows and faculty from STEM disciplines, teachers and students in K-12 environments, and community partners, graduate students can gain a deeper understanding of their own research and place it within a societal and global context. The limit on the number of proposals per organization is one. NSF 09-549

Deadline: Internal 4/24/2009; Letters of Intent 5/19/2009; Proposals 6/29/2009

14-3 Entrepreneur Postdoctoral Fellowships (Kauffman)

The Kauffman Foundation has announced a new postdoctoral fellowship program designed to advance innovation and entrepreneurship among scientists. The fellowship will engage 12 postdoctoral researchers in a yearlong program of training and mentorship. The goal of the program is partly to teach the fellows the intricacies of commercializing a scientific breakthrough and partly to spark their entrepreneurial fire.

Deadline: 5/1/2009


14-4 Global Change Ultraviolet Radiation Monitoring Program (USDA)

The purpose of the GCUVM Program is to support research which: 1) Generates an uninterrupted stream of climatology data; 2) Determines mechanisms and symptoms of plant and animal response; and 3) Develops tightly integrated models to assess regional and national impacts of multiple plant stressors. Climatology data provide a much needed history of dosage, along with seasonal and geographic variability. The GCUVM also seeks to understand how ultraviolet radiation alters plant and animal physiology, development, and ecosystems. Finally, based on crop growth models (adapted fur UV-B inputs), data on Earth's climate, radiation data, and satellite data, will enhance understanding of regional climate-crop interactions. This climate-crop assessment framework is used to predict crop responses to environmental stressors, and ultimately provide valuable information for producers and policy makers as they deal with a changing climate. This program announcement will compete and fund these three program areas separately. USDA-CSREES-SRGP-002194 (GG 4/6/09)

Deadline: 5/5/2009

14-5 Interregional Research Project #4 Minor Crop Pest Management Program (USDA)

The primary goal of the Ir-4 program is to provide safe, effective and economical pest management solutions for growers of minor/specialty crops. IR-4 facilitates crop protection by providing expert assistance with product development and registration. Successful applicants will demonstrate the capacity and commitment required to accelerate the registration of newer, reduced risk pest management tools; expedite access to these pest management tools for minor/specialty crop growers, and conduct efficacy research to identify new and more effective minor/specialty crop pest management solutions. The FY 2009 IR-4 Program will fund four geographically-based IR-4 Regional Centers and an IR-4 National Headquarters. (GG 4/3/09)

14-8 Teacher Quality Partnership Grants Program- Recovery Act (ARRA) (ED)

These supplemental funds, appropriated under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), are intended to help stimulate the American economy. The Teacher Quality Partnership program seeks to improve the quality of new teachers working in high-need local educational agencies (LEAs) and high-need schools by creating successful and high-quality model Pre-Baccalaureate Teacher Preparation programs and/or Teaching Residency programs for those qualified to begin teaching. Projects may also include a school leadership component to train superintendents, principals, early childhood educator program directors and other school leaders in high-need or rural LEAs.

14-9 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Research Program- Presolicitation Notice (AFOSR)

This American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Research Program will create new research jobs and new technologies that will provide further economic stimulus. This ARRA Research Program will investigate the underpinning science necessary to develop nanoscale additives for novel fuels. The ability to dissolve or suspend additives or catalysts in fuels has created the opportunity to develop new sets of desirable properties for fuels for aircraft, rockets, and satellites. An understanding of how these new catalytic processes occur and how multifunctional catalysts can be developed will be investigated. A multidisciplinary effort is required to address this developing opportunity including fundamental research in chemistry, physics, surface and materials science, and computational simulation and modeling. Full Announcement AFOSR-BAA-2009-3 will be posted within 10 days of this presolicitation notice. AFOSR-BAA-2009-3 (GG 4/3/09)
