In FY 2007, NSF will invest in leading edge, frontier research on sensors and other areas, including social and behavioral sciences, that are potentially relevant to the prediction and detection of explosives and related threats. This is an NSF-wide effort, in coordination with the efforts of other agencies, which seeks to advance fundamental knowledge in new technologies for sensors and sensor networks, and in the use of sensor data in control and decision making, particularly in relation to the prediction and detection of explosives and related threats. Research on prediction and detection of biological, toxic chemical, and nuclear weapons is excluded from the scope of this solicitation. An individual researcher may not be named as a participant on more than one proposal submitted to this solicitation. NSF 07-528 (Posted 11/30/06)
In partnership with academic institutions, botanical gardens, freshwater and marine institutes, and natural history museums, the National Science Foundation seeks to enhance taxonomic research and help prepare future generations of experts. Through this Special Biennial Competition in Systematic Biology, NSF will support competitively reviewed projects that target groups of poorly known organisms for modern monographic research. Projects must train new taxonomists (two per project minimally) and must translate current expertise into electronic databases and other products with broad accessibility to the scientific community.

Award recipients are expected to highlight the achievements of K-State scientists while establishing networks of potential collaborators. Requests for funding up to $1500 will be considered. Requests that include matching funds will be viewed favorably. Requests will be reviewed on March 1 and September 1, or until funds are expended. For additional information about the Center, please visit www.ksu.edu/agc.
Funding is available for projects only. A project my consist of one or more specific events or activities; it may be a part of an applicant's regular season of activities. Organizations that undertake a single short-term project in a year--a ten-day jazz festival, for example--could apply for that event, or they could identify certain components (such as the presentation of a key artist and the associated activities) as their project. Organizations may apply for any or all phases of a project, from its planning through its implementation. A project does not have to be new. Excellent existing projects can be just as competitive as new activities. Projects do not need to be large. The Arts Endowment welcomes small projects that can make a difference in a community or field. An organization may submit only one application under these FY 2008 Grants for Arts Projects guidelines, with few exceptions. 2007NEA01AAE1 (GG 1/8/07)

As part of a two-phase Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) is seeking research grant applications to further our understanding of the effects of child and adolescent alcohol use on the developing human brain. We now know that the brain continues to develop into a person's twenties with dramatic changes in structure and function coincident with a period of life during which most youth initiate and escalate their consumption of alcohol. This FOA calls for applications to propose and test the feasibility of research study designs addressing the following fundamental questions about the impacts of child and adolescent consumption on the developing brain: 1) what are the effects (both long and shorter-term) of alcohol exposure on the developing brain; 2) what is the effect of timing, dose and duration of alcohol exposure on brain development; and 3) to what extent do these effects resolve or persist.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support the first phase of a two-stage program to expand understanding of the underlying mechanisms of immunity to viral infection and vaccination. The first phase awarded in the fiscal year 2007 will use R21 exploratory/developmental grants to address key questions related to viral immunity. The second phase, planned for award in the fiscal year 2009, will support a substantially larger effort involving collaborative teams funded through U01 and U19 single and multiple project cooperative agreement grants. The overarching goal is to address key questions in viral immunity and the immunological basis of vaccination. RFA-AI-07-008 (NIHG 12/15/07)
Tinker Foundation institutional grants are awarded to organizations and institutions that promote the interchange and exchange of information within the community of those concerned with the affairs of Spain, Portugal, Ibero-America and Antarctica. (For the Foundation's purposes, Ibero-America is defined as the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries of the Western Hemisphere.) Programmatically, the Foundation funds projects addressing environmental policy, economic policy or governance issues. Projects should have a strong public policy component, offer innovative solutions to problems facing these regions, and incorporate new mechanisms for addressing these programmatic areas.
The ultimate goal of this program announcement is to encourage the development of health research that integrates knowledge from the biomedical and social sciences. This announcement invites applications to a) elucidate basic social and cultural constructs and processes used in the health research; b) clarify social and cultural factors in the etiology and consequences of health and illness; c) link basic research to practice for improving prevention, treatment, health services, and dissemination; and d) explore ethical issues in social and cultural research related to health.
