21-5 Enduring Questions (NEH)

The NEH Enduring Questions grant program supports faculty members in the teaching and development of a new course that will foster intellectual community through the study of an enduring question. This question-driven course will encourage undergraduates and teachers to grapple with a fundamental concern of human life addressed by the humanities, and to join together in a deep and sustained program of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day. What is an enduring question? The following list is neither prescriptive nor exhaustive but serves to illustrate. · What is good government? · Can war be just? · What is friendship? · What is evil? · Are there universals in human nature? · What are the origins of the universe? Enduring questions are questions to which no discipline, field, or profession can lay an exclusive claim. In many cases they predate the formation of the academic disciplines themselves. 20130912-AQ (GG 5/29/13)

21-6 ROSES 2013: Rapid Response and Novel Research in Earth Science (NASA)

In order to address its strategic goals and objectives, the Earth Science Division (ESD) of the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) acknowledges that there are important and highly relevant research topics and opportunities that cannot be anticipated in annual disciplinary and cross-disciplinary ROSES elements. In particular, it is usually not possible to solicit the following two types of activities: Research on Earth system events or opportunities to collaborate that occur unpredictably as rare and valuable targets of opportunity and that require rapid provision of resources to enable immediate research activity to take advantage of that target of opportunity, and First-Time investigations applying novel and innovative ideas to advance Earth remote sensing in a previously undeveloped area of remote sensing theory, technology utilization, or scientific application. This program element solicits proposals that advance the goals and objectives of NASA's Earth Science Division by conducting unique research to investigate 1) unforeseen or unpredictable Earth system events and opportunities that require rapid response, and 2) novel new ideas of potential high merit and relevance for ESD science that have not otherwise been solicited by NASA in the past three years.
