The instructions for subscribing are located near the top of this column. Please contact Beverly Page, 532-5045, bbpage@ksu.edu with any questions or concerns.



36-1 Hydrologic Sciences (NSF)

Hydrologic Sciences focuses on the flow of water and transport processes within streams, soils, and aquifers. Particular attention is given to spatial and temporal heterogeneity of fluxes and storages of water, particles, and chemicals coupling across interfaces with the landscape, microbial communities, and coastal environments, to upscaling and downscaling given these heterogeneities and interfaces and how these processes are altered by climate and land use changes. Studies may address aqueous geochemistry as well as physical, chemical, and biological processes within water bodies. These studies commonly involve expertise from many basic sciences and mathematics, and proposals often require joint review with related programs. NSF 09-538

36-8 Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I Solicitation FY-2010 (STTR) (NSF)

The small business programs stimulate technological innovation in the private sector by strengthening the role of small business concerns in meeting Federal research and development needs, increasing the commercial application of federally supported research results, and fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses. The Small Business Technology Transfer Program (STTR) requires research at universities and other research institutions to play a significant intellectual role in the conduct of each STTR project. These university-based researchers, by joining forces with a small company, can spin-off their commercially promising ideas while they remain primarily employed at the research institution. Only one proposal per organization will be accepted for this solicitation. 09-605
