The purpose of the Antarctic Artists and Writers Program is to enable serious writings and works of art that exemplify the Antarctic heritage of humankind. In particular, the program seeks to increase public understanding of the Antarctic region, including the continent and the surrounding oceans, as well as the associated research and education endeavors. The Antarctic Artists and Writers Program provides opportunities for professional artists and writers to travel to Antarctica--at research stations, field camps, and aboard ships--to make the observations necessary to complete their proposed projects. NSF 07-550 (Posted 3/9/07)
This program is targeted in particular to U.S. universities (including U.S. government schools of higher education) or other research institutions outside the Department of Defense. This solicitation's primary objective is to attract outstanding researchers and scholars to investigate topics of interest to the defense acquisition community. The program solicits innovative proposals for defense acquisition management and policy research to be conducted during fiscal year (FY) 2008 (1 Oct 07 - 30 Sep 08). NPSBAA07-002 (GG 3/14/07)
The Office of Naval Research seeks proposals in inter-node detection and classification and in field level processing. Proposals for in-node automated detection will be considered provided they are related to the inter-node and field processing needs of distributed ASW systems. ONR is primarily interested in fields containing nodes of either active or passive acoustic sensors. Specific examples are the ADAR buoys used in air ASW or the bottom mounted arrays of the Integrated Undersea Surveillance System. However, proposals applicable to fields of non-acoustic sensors will be considered. In all cases, it is expected that algorithms proposed will operate in real-time with limited operator intervention.

The Instrumentation and Facilities Program in the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR/IF) supports meritorious requests within and across Earth science disciplines. EAR/IF will consider proposals for: 1) Acquisition of Upgrade of Research Equipment; 2) Development of New Instrumentation, Analytical Techniques or Software; 3) Support of National or Regional Multi - User Facilities; 4) Support of Research Technicians; 5) Development of Cyberinfrastructure for the Earth Sciences (Geoinformatics). NSF 07-553 (Posted 3/13/07)
The Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) program aims to significantly increase the number of U.S. citizens and permanent residents receiving post secondary degrees in the computing disciplines, with an emphasis on students from communities with longstanding underrepresentation in computing: women, persons with disabilities, and minorities. Included minorities are African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders. The BPC program seeks to engage the computing community in developing and implementing innovative methods to improve recruitment and retention of these students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Because the lack of role models in the professoriate can be a barrier to participation, the BPC program also aims to develop effective strategies for encouraging individuals to pursue academic careers in computing and become these role models. NSF 07-548 (Posted 3/6/07)
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Special Grants Program in Chemical Sciences offers support to eligible institutions for projects that propose to advance the science of chemistry in innovative ways. Proposals are invited in any area consistent with the Foundation's broad objective of advancing the chemical sciences. For projects that require sustaining support, note that the Special Grants Program is intended to seed the initial phases, with the expectation that grant recipients will find continuing funding from other sources.
The objectives of the Stewardship Science Academic Alliances Program are to: 1) support the U.S. scientific community by funding research projects at universities in the areas of fundamental science and technology critical to Stockpile Stewardship, with a focus on those areas not supported by other federal agencies, and for which there is recruiting need within the NNSA/DP laboratories; 2) provide advanced experimental measurement techniques in selected areas of Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science, Hydrodynamics, Plasma and High-Energy-Density Physics, Fluid Dynamics, and Low-Energy Nuclear Science; 3) provide opportunities for intellectual challenge and collaboration by promoting scientific interactions and personnel exchanges between the academic community and scientists at the NNSA/DP laboratories; 4) increase the availability of unique experimental facilities sited at the NNSA/DP laboratories to the academic community, particularly for collaborations in areas of relevance to Stockpile Stewardship; and 5) develop and maintain a long-term recruiting pipeline to the NNSA/DP laboratories by increasing the visibility of the NNSA/DP scientific activities to the U.S. faculty and student communities.

12-11 Developmental Centers for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Phase I (DCRC I) [U19] (NIH)
This PAR solicits applications to support Developmental Centers for Research on CAM: Phase I, comprised of 3 or 4 developmental/exploratory (R21-comparable) research projects in complementary/alternative medicine (CAM). The first year of the four-year award will support preparatory/planning activities, including but not limited to, protocol development and expansion of research administration infrastructure, if needed, at participating CAM school(s). Continuation beyond the planning phase will be dependent on programmatic review, approximately nine months after the award date. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. PAR-07-248 (NIHG 3/16/07)
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the National Institute on Aging (NIA), in cooperation with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH), invite applications under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for research studies that focus on basic cellular, molecular, genetic, and developmental mechanisms of the normal and abnormal function of the bladder and lower urinary tract. An important goal of this FOA is to attract new and established investigators from a variety of basic science research areas to apply their knowledge, skills, and tools to studies of the bladder and lower urinary tract.

The Research & Advanced Concepts Office (RACO) of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral & Social Sciences is soliciting new proposals for its FY f2008 basic research in behavioral science. Requests for copies of the Broad Agency Announcement must be in writing to LaWanda Stewart via email: LaWandaStewat@hqda.army.mil or fax (503) 695-9747. W91WAW-07-BAA-RACO (FBO 3/15/07)
The International Collaborative Research Grant (ICRG) supports international research collaborations between two or more qualified scholars, where the principal investigators bring different and complementary perspectives, knowledge, and/or skills to the project. Supplemental funds are also available to provide essential training for academic research participants in ICRG-funded projects (co-applicants, students, as well as other professional colleagues). By encouraging international collaborations, the grant contributes to the development of an international anthropology that values and incorporates different national perspectives and resources. By providing training funds, the grant helps to build capacity in countries where anthropology may be under-resourced.
The purpose of this program is to enable doctoral candidates enrolled at institutions of higher education accredited by a national or regional accrediting agency recognized by the US Department of Education to complete their research and dissertations on policy relevant housing and urban development issues.
