2-1 Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) (NSF)

The Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program funds research and educational projects that improve ethics education in all fields of science and engineering that NSF supports, with priority consideration given to interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international contexts. Although the primary focus is on improving ethics education for graduate students in NSF-funded fields, the proposed programs may benefit advanced undergraduates as well. NSF 11-514

2-2 NOAA Climate Program Office (NOAA)

The NOAA Climate Program Office's (CPO) Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program supports research teams that conduct innovative, interdisciplinary, user-inspired, and regionally relevant research that informs resource management and public policy. CPO funds eleven different RISA teams across the United States and Pacific Islands, many of which are a model for interdisciplinary science and assessment. In FY2013, NOAA CPO and its partners are holding two competitions for research funding. Competition 1 is soliciting proposals to two priorities: one RISA team focused on the South Central region of the US, and one RISA team focused on the upper Midwestern US. Competition 2 is soliciting proposals only from RISA teams and their partners to conduct projects relevant to one of four priorities: Preparing for floods in urban coastal communities (Priority 3); Scenario and management planning processes (Priority 4); Drought monitoring and prediction products to support decision making (Priority 5); and Climate impacts on marine and Great Lakes ecosystems (Priority 6).

2-3 Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation - SSE & SSI (SI2 - SSE&SSI) (NSF)

Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) program is a long-term investment focused on catalyzing new thinking, paradigms, and practices in developing and using software to understand natural, human, and engineered systems. The SI2 program includes three classes of awards: 1) Scientific Software Elements (SSE) that targets small groups that will create and deploy robust software elements for which there is a demonstrated need that will advance one or more significant areas of science and engineering; 2) Scientific Software Integration (SSI) that targets larger, interdisciplinary teams organized around the development and application of common software infrastructure aimed at solving common research problems; and 3) Scientific Software Innovation Institutes (S2I2) to focus on the establishment of long-term hubs of excellence in software infrastructure and technologies, which will serve a research community of substantial size and disciplinary breadth. This solicitation includes SSE and SSI awards only. S2I2 awards will be competed in a separate solicitation. NSF 13-525

Deadline: 3/18/2013

2-7 Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) (R25) (NIH)

The purpose of the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) Program is to develop the pool of a diverse group of highly trained undergraduate and graduate students who go on to research careers and will be available to participate in NIH-funded research. The program provides institutional grants to research-intensive institutions that propose well-integrated developmental activities designed to increase students' academic preparation and skills that are critical to the completion of the Ph.D. degree in biomedical and behavioral sciences. Only one application per institution is allowed. PAR-13-082 (NIHG 1/11/13)

2-8 Postbaccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) (R25) (NIH)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Institutes of Health (NIH), encourages Research Education Grant (R25) applications from institutions that propose to develop recent baccalaureate science graduates from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral sciences so that they have the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue PhD or MD-PhD degrees in these fields. The program provides support for well-designed academic enhancements and extensive research experiences aimed at preparing individuals from diverse backgrounds to complete PhD or MD-PhD degree programs in these disciplines. Only one application per institution is allowed. PAR-13-085 (NIHG 1/11/16)

2-10 Bloat Initiative Request for Proposals (AKC)

Gastric dilation-volvulus (GDV), commonly known as bloat, is a rapidly progressing and devastating condition that can develop in multiple breeds of dogs. Bloat is of foremost concern to the AKC Canine Health Foundation and its donors, and as such will require a major research effort to identify the underlying mechanisms of this disease. In response to donor concern, we are launching a Bloat Initiative to better define, and ultimately eradicate, bloat in dogs. In order to accomplish this goal, the Bloat Initiative RFP will support hypothesis-driven and discovery research; however, genomic studies in the absence of complementary proteomic, epigenomic, metabolomic, transcriptomic or pathophysiology studies will not be considered responsive to this RFP. Similarly, studies designed to enhance surgical technique must be paired with pathophysiology research in order to be considered responsive. Basic science applications should have a well-defined translational endpoint. Collaborative, multidisciplinary teams of researchers are strongly encouraged.

2-11 Plant Genome Research Program (PFRP) (NSF)

This program is a continuation of the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) that began in FY 1998. Four kinds of activity will be supported in FY 2013: 1) Genomics-empowered plant research to tackle fundamental questions in plant sciences on a genome-wide scale; 2) Development of tools and resources for plant genome research including novel technologies and analysis tools to enable discovery; 3) Mid-Career Investigator Awards in Plant Genome Research (MCA-PGR) to increase participation of investigators trained primarily in fields other than plant genomics; and, 4) Novel Methods for Generating Physical Frameworks for Plant Genomes (GPF-PG) to develop new and cost effective strategies for the construction of the genomes of plants of economic importance. Proposals addressing these opportunities are welcomed at all scales, from single-investigator projects through multi-investigator, multi-institution projects, commensurate with the scope and scale of the work proposed. NSF 13-522

2-12 Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence Related Injury (CDC)

The purposes of the NCIPC extramural violence prevention research program are to: Build the scientific base for the prevention of violence by helping to expand and advance our understanding of the primary prevention of interpersonal and self-directed violence; Encourage professionals from a wide spectrum of disciplines of epidemiology, behavioral and social sciences, medicine, biostatistics, public health, health economics, law, and criminal justice to perform research in order to prevent violence more effectively; Encourage investigators to propose research that involves the development and testing of primary prevention strategies as well as research on methods to enhance the adoption and maintenance of effective strategies among individuals, organizations, or communities.

2-13 OJJDP FY 2013 Mentoring Best Practices Research (DOJ)

This program seeks to enhance what is understood about mentoring as a prevention and intervention strategy for youth who are at risk of involvement or already involved in the juvenile justice system. While mentoring appears to be a promising intervention for youth, more evaluation work is needed to further highlight the characteristics and components of a mentoring program that are most effective. Research is also needed to demonstrate the specific components of mentoring programs that have a significant impact in reducing juvenile delinquency and offending. This solicitation will fund research studies that will inform the design and delivery of mentoring programs. OJJDP-2013-3415 (GG 12/21/12)
