In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence shows that air within buildings can be more seriously polluted than outdoor air. People spend as much as 90% of their time indoors. Thus, for many people the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors. EPA Region 7 awards funds annually under the Clean Air Act to be used to conduct and promote the coordination and acceleration of research, investigations, experiments, demonstrations, surveys, and studies relating to the causes, effects (including health and welfare effects), extent, reduction, prevention and control of air pollution.

The Physics Frontiers Centers (PFC) program supports university-based centers and institutes where the collective efforts of a larger group of individuals can enable transformational advances in the most promising research areas. The program is designed to foster major breakthroughs at the intellectual frontiers of physics by providing needed resources such as combinations of talents, skills, disciplines, and/or specialized infrastructure, not usually available to individual investigators or small groups, in an environment in which the collective efforts of the larger group can be shown to be seminal to promoting significant progress in the science and the education of students. Activities supported through the program are in all sub-fields of physics within the purview of the Division of Physics: atomic, molecular, optical, plasma, elementary particle, nuclear, astrogravitational, and biological physics. Interdisciplinary projects at the interface between these physics areas and other disciplines and physics sub-fields, e.g. biology, quantum information science, mathematical physics, condensed matter physics, and emerging areas of physics are also included. No more than two preliminary proposals may be submitted by any one institution. NSF 07-567 (Posted 5/31/07)
The target date for proposal submissions to programs in the Division of Physics varies according to program. For proposals competing for FY 2008 (which begins October 1, 2007) funds, the target date for unsolicited proposals submitted to most programs is September 26, 2007 (except as noted below). Submission to the Physics Frontiers Centers program is in response to the solicitation only. For FY 2008, the Division will entertain submissions in the following areas: Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics, Biological Physics (Target Date is July 31 2007), Education and Interdisciplinary Research, Elementary and Particle Physics, Gravitational Physics and LIGO, NSF/DOE Partnership in Basic Plasma Science and Engineering (Target Date is December 12, 2007), Nuclear Physics, Particle and Nuclear Astrophysics (Including R&D for Underground Laboratory), Physics at the Information Frontier (Target Date is October 24, 2007), Physics Frontiers Centers (Special Solicitation Deadline) and Theoretical Physics.

The U.S. continues to experience social changes relating to the economy, demographics, and the social and behavioral functioning of individuals and families and the well-being of children. The manner by which government and others react to or precipitates these changes also is in a state of evolution. A key way that these issues are examined by Health & Human Services is by studying the causes and consequences of poverty and inequality as well as policy and program responses to ameliorate poverty and inequality and their impacts on Americans. In order to further these efforts and inform the public, HHS is soliciting applications from university-based institutions for a cooperative agreement. The Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) expects to fund the National Poverty Research Center for a period of three (3) years. HS-07-028 (GG 5/30/07)
The Jennings Randolph Program for International Peace awards Senior Fellowships to enable outstanding scholars, policy makers, journalists, and other professionals from around the world to conduct research at the U.S. Institute of Peace on important issues concerning international conflict and peace. Priority is given to proposals that promise to make a timely contribution to the understanding and resolution of ongoing and emerging international conflicts. USIP is especially interested in proposals addressing problems of the Muslim world, post-war reconstruction and peacebuilding and stability operations in Iraq and elsewhere, and responses to terrorism and political violence. However, proposals in all fields are welcome.
The Canadian Studies Research Grant Program promotes research in the social sciences and humanities that contributes to a better knowledge and understanding of Canada, its relationship with the United States, and its international affairs.
