The NIH Director's New Innovator Award, created this year, addresses two important goals: stimulating highly innovative research and supporting promising new investigators. As part of its commitment to increasing the success of new investigators, NIH has created the NIH Director's New Innovator Award to support exceptionally creative new investigators who propose highly innovative approaches that have the potential to produce an unusually high impact. Applicant PD/PI's must hold an independent research position at a domestic (U.S.) institution as of September 20, 2007 and must have received their most recent doctoral degree (e.g., Ph.D., M.D., D.D.S., D.V.M., or equivalent) in 1997 or later.

The Administration for Children and Families plans to fund applications that provide or facilitate the provision of services that will result in refugee families earning income at a self-sufficiency level through farming and related businesses. Applications should include improving outreach and collaboration so that refugee farmers have greater access to community resources. In general, these community resources should fall under the areas of marketing, financing, land acquisition, and technical assistance and include activities such as improved market opportunities, business management skills, financing, ability to acquire land, growing practices and understanding various regulatory requirements and procedures.

11-6 National Center to Enhance the Training of Personnel Who Share Responsibility for Improving Outcomes for Young Children With Disabilities (ED)
The purposes of this program are to: 1) help address State-identified needs for highly qualified personnel--in special education, related services, early intervention, and regular education--to work with infants or toddlers with disabilities, or children with disabilities; and 2) ensure that those personnel have the skills and knowledge--derived from practices that have been determined through research and experience to be successful--that are needed to serve those children. CFDA Number: 84.325 (FR 3/5/07)
11-7 Chemistry Research Instrumentation and Facilities: Departmental Multi-User Instrumentation (CRIF:MU) (NSF)
The Chemistry Research Instrumentation and Facilities Program (CRIF) is structured to enable the National Science Foundation's Division of Chemistry to respond to a variety of needs for infrastructure that promotes research and education in areas traditionally supported by the Division. The Departmental Multi-User Instrumentation component of CRIF (CRIF:MU) provides funds to universities, colleges, and consortia thereof for the purchase of multi-user instruments. The maximum request is $500,000 for instrumentation. Additional funds may be requested for personnel who are needed to support cyber-enhanced projects. The principal investigator must be the chemistry department chairperson or equivalent. Limit on number of proposals per organization is two per institution. If two are submitted, at least one must involve cyberinfrastructure. NSF 07-552 (Posted 3/16/07)
The U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) together with the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) announces the availability of the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). ARO is soliciting proposals from the degree-granting universities in conjunction with government laboratories and/or industry partners to invent, explore, and evaluate new approaches for detection of explosives. Proposals are sought in one category only: Standoff Detection of Explosive Threats. W911NF-07-R-0008 (GG 3/9/07)
This solicitation aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of this year's competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology. Only one proposal may be submitted by a PI. The lead PI must hold a faculty appointment within a College/Department of Engineering or College/Department of Engineering Technology within the submitting U.S. academic institution. Only one proposal may be submitted by a U.S. academic institution, College/ Department of Engineering or College/Department of Engineering Technology as the lead institution with the following exception: A U.S. academic institution may submit a second proposal as the lead institution only if it is focused on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
