The purpose of this program is to plan and conduct research, demonstration projects, training and related activities that help to maximize the full inclusion and integration of individuals with disabilities into society and to improve the effectiveness of services. The Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services intends to fund a National Center for the Dissemination of Disability Research to serve as a leader center in the area of Knowledge Translation/Knowledge Dissemination and Utilization. This center will ensure that NIDRR constituencies have ready access to high-quality, research-based information that has the potential to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL) located in New Jersey, is soliciting proposals for Grants to enhance the performance and usability of current bulk explosives detection systems intended fo use in screening air cargo by improving the performance of subsystems and/or components of these systems. Bulk technologies considered to date for screening air cargo have generally been found to be large, slow, and expensive. The bulk technologies being considered use neutron or photon based methods. Increasing the usability of these techniques, in terms of performance and/or cost, requires improvements to data acquisition systems (detector and associated signal processing electronics) and/or sources of probing radiation (neutrons/photons). In general, this is an effort to seek data acquisition systems with higher per channel throughput rates and better energy resolution and probe sources with better characteristics (brightness, flux, time structure, size, cost, etc.) DHS-GRANTS-071905-001 (FG 7/19/05)
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund's Investigators in Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease program provides an opportunity to bring aggressive, multidisciplinary approaches to investigating infectious disease. The goal of the program is to provide new opportunities for accomplished investigators still early in their careers to study pathogenesis, with a focus on the intersection of human and pathogen biology. BWF is particularly interested in work focused on the host, as well as host-pathogen studies originating in viral, bacterial, fungal or parasite systems. Work on under-studied pathogens including fungi, metazoan and protozoan parasites, and emerging viruses, is especially of interest. An institution may nominate up to two researchers, three if one holds the D.V.M.
The goal of this Request for Applications (RFA) from the Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) and cosponsoring Institutes and Offices of the National Institutes of Health is to solicit applications that support research on the neuroimmune mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and spectrum disorders in diverse groups and across the life span. Applications are encouraged from individuals who are part of multidisciplinary teams of scientists studying different aspects of CFS and its spectrum disorders. The NIH is soliciting applications that: 1) examine mediators influencing central control mechanisms and communication among interacting components of the nervous and immune systems; 2) apply new tools to explore different aspects of the disease process; 3) elucidate the development of influences that may enhance disease susceptibility and contribute to mechanistic aspects of this disease; and 4) identify predictive biomarkers for CFS and/or spectrum disorders.

28-9 International, Collaborative, Projects In Science and Technology Between U.S. and Egyptian Cooperators (STATE)
This program will provide modest grants for successfully competitive proposals for binational collaborative projects and other activities submitted by U.S. and Egyptian experts. Projects must help the United States and Egypt utilize science and apply technology by providing opportunities to exchange ideas, information, skills and techniques, and to collaborate on scientific and technological endeavors of mutual interest and benefit. (FG 7/12/05)
This program will provide modest grants for successfully competitive proposals for development visits by U.S Junior Scientists to Egypt and Junior Egyptian Scientists to the United States. Applicants must be scientists who have received their PhD within the past ten years or for U.S. applicants only may also be currently enrolled in a Master's or PhD program. All proposals, which fully meet the submission requirements, will be considered; however, special consideration will be given to proposals in the areas of Biotechnology, Standards and Metrology, Environmental Technologies, Energy, Manufacturing Technologies and Information Technology.

The Labor Department seeks cooperative agreement applications to improve access to and quality of education as a means to combat exploitive child labor among indigenous children in Ecuador. Applicants must propose creative, innovative and targeted approaches to promote policies and services that will enhance the provision of educational opportunities for indigenous children. Projects must focus on direct service delivery to targeted children, including services that address the specific gaps/challenges that prevent children from attending or staying in school, such as obstacles cited by Ecuadorian organizations: lack of resources for bilingual education; poor infrastructure in rural schools; and teacher shortages.

The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that competing applications will be accepted for a new grant to fund training and technical assistance resources for the Community Services Network. OCS will offer one-year grants to fund a one year project period for the creation and disseminiation of best practice technical assistance materials from local community organizations, including those that are faith-based, that have demonstrated success in promoting or sustaining healthy marriages among clients as part of an over all strategy to help low-income people achieve family and child development, and/or self-sufficiency goals. Special emphasis is being placed on the development and disseminiation of best practice materials that focus on a wide range of low-income populations, including racial and ethnic minorities.
