The Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (HER) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) supports basic and applied research and evaluation that enhances science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning and teaching. The Research and Evaluation on Education in Science and Engineering (REESE) program aims at advancing research at the frontiers of STEM learning, education, and evaluation, and at providing the foundation knowledge necessary to improve STEM teaching and learning at all educational levels and in all settings. This solicitation calls for four types of proposals: Knowledge Diffusion, Empirical Research, Large Empirical Research, and Diffusion and Evaluation. NSF 07-595
The Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) has created the Expeditions in Computing (Expeditions) program to provide the CISE research and education community with the opportunity to pursue ambitious, fundamental research agendas that promise to define the future of computing and information. In planning Expeditions, investigators are encouraged to come together within or across departments or institutions to combine their creative talents in the identification of compelling, transformative research agendas that promise disruptive innovations in computing and information for many years to come. An individual may participate in no more that one preliminary or full proposal as PI, co-PI, senior personnel or consultant. NSF 07-592 (GG 9/13/07)
The primary objective of the EDMAP component of the NCGMP is to train the next generation of geologic mappers. To do this NCGMP provides funds for graduate and selected undergraduate students in academic research projects that involve geologic mapping as a major component. Through these cooperative agreements NCGMP hopes to expand the research and educational capacity of academic programs that teach earth science students the techniques of geologic mapping and field data analysis. 08HQPA0004 (GG 9/13/07)
CDC's Procurement and Grants Office has published a program announcement entitled, "Improving Health and Educational Outcomes of Young People." The purpose of the program is to improve the health and well being of youth and prepare them to be healthy adults.CDC-RFA-DP08-801 (GG 9/21/07)

The Outstanding New Environmental Scientist Award is intended to identify outstanding scientists who are in the early, formative stages of their careers and who intend to make a long term career commitment to research in the mission areas of the NIEHS and assist them in launching an innovative research program focusing on problems of environmental exposures and human biology, human pathophysiology and human disease. Eligible Principal Investigators include individuals with faculty appointments which are tenure track or equivalent and who have fewer that eight years of experience beyond the PhD at the time of application. Only one application per school or college within a university will be accepted. RFA-ES-07-005 (NIHG 9/14/07)
37-11 International Collaboration in Chemistry between US Investigators and their Counterparts in Germany, United Kingdom and China (ICC) (NSF)
The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to enhance opportunities for collaborative activities between U.S. and foreign investigators. To realize this goal the Chemistry Division at NSF has partnered with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; German Research Foundation), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of the United Kingdom and the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC). NSF Chemistry will accept collaborative research proposals in chemistry that establish new bilateral collaborations between U.S. investigators and investigators from Germany, United Kingdom of China. The proposals will be written in English. The program seeks new and highly innovative 3-year collaborative projects that break new ground and demonstrate high level of synergy between the collaborating investigators. A U.S. Investigator may participate (as PI, Co-PI or other senior research associate) in only one proposal which is submitted in response to this solicitation. NSF 07-593 (Posted 9/19/07)
The National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Department of Energy invite applications for the establishment or continuation of International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups (ICBG) to address the interdependence of biodiversity exploration for potential applications in health, agriculture and energy, with investments in research capacity that support sustainable use of these resources, the knowledge to conserve them, and equitable partnership frameworks among research and development organizations in the U.S. and low and middle income countries.
