Limited submission programs have sponsor restrictions on the number of proposals that may be submitted by a single institution and will require institutional screening to determine which applications will be submitted. Dr. Jim Guikema, Associate Vice Provost for Research, is the internal coordinator for limited submission programs. Please notify him at 785-532-6195, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, by the Internal due date listed in the Funding Bulletin (FB 6-2) or by at least two months prior to the sponsor deadline if you wish to submit to a limited submission program.

Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI) from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund are intended to foster the early career development of postdoctoral scientists with backgrounds in the physical/computational sciences whose work addresses biological questions and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research. The awards provide up to $500,000 in support over five years to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of a future faculty appointment, presumably at a different institution. Applicants are expected to draw upon their training in a scientific field other than biology to propose innovative approaches to answer important questions in the biological sciences. Candidates should hold a Ph.D in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, statistics, or engineering and be nominated by a degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada. An institution may nominate up to two candidates for the award; however, institutions that nominate a female candidate will be allowed three nominations and an additional nomination is allowed for an African-American, Hispanic, or Native American candidate.
The goal of the EMT program is to enable radical innovations in the software, hardware and architecture of computing and communication systems through the support of projects that capitalize upon research opportunities at the intersection of computing and biological systems, nanoscale science and engineering, quantum information science, and other promising areas of science and technology. Interdisciplinary collaborations involving computer scientists, engineers in various fields, physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and biologists are highly encouraged. In FY 2008, the EMT program will fund research projects of three different types: Large-- these projects typically involve four or more Principal Investigators working in complementary fields of science or engineering, and their associated postdoctoral fellows and/or students; Medium--these projects typically involve two to four PIs with complementary research expertise and their associated postdoctoral fellows and/or students; and Small--these projects typically consist of a single PI and associated postdoctoral fellow and/or students.

The NCRR Shared Instrument Grant (SIG) program solicits applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade commercially available instruments that cost at least $100,00. The maximum award is $500,000. Types of instruments supported include confocal and electron microscopes, biomedical imagers, mass spectrometers, DNA sequencers, biosensors, cell sorters, X-ray diffraction systems, and NMR spectrometers among others. To be eligible to apply, three or more NIH funded investigators who will be users of the requested instruments must be identified. PAR-08-036 (NIHG 12/7/07)
The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC), operating through the Risk Management Agency (RMA) announces the availability of funding for collaborative outreach and assistance programs for limited resource, socially disadvantaged and other traditionally under-served farmers and ranchers, who produce Priority Commodities. The purpose of this program is to fund projects that provide training, informational opportunities and assistance to understand: 1) the kind of risks addressed by existing and emerging risk management tools, 2) the features and appropriate use of existing and emerging risk management tools and 3) how to make sound risk management decisions.
These grants support national faculty development programs in the humanities for school teachers, and for college and university teachers. Seminars and institutes may be as short as two weeks or as long as six weeks. The duration of a program should allow for full and thorough treatment of the topic.20080303-FS (GG 1/4/08)
The French American Fund for Contemporary Music supports contemporary music projects (commissions, residencies, performances, tours, and master classes) that foster cultural exchange between France and the United States. The fund awards grants to nonprofit institutions celebrating the work of living composers in both countries. Collaborations combining new French and American works are especially encouraged. The repertoire should fall within one of the following categories: contemporary music for classical instrumentation; computer-assisted composition and research with multimedia tools; and new forms of improvised and electronic music. Special consideration will be given to projects involving the commission of new works.(RFPB 1/4/08)
6-8 Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teachers and Community College Faculty (NEH)
As part of NEH's We the People program, the Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports series of one-week residence-based workshops for K-12 educators or community college faculty that use historic sites to address central themes and issues in American history, government, literature, art history or other related subjects in humanities. Workshops should be held at or near sites important to American history and culture (e.g., presidential residences or libraries, Colonial-era settlements, major battlefields, historic districts, and sites associated with major writers or artists). 20080317-BH (GG 1/14/08)
This NASA Research Announcement (NRA) solicits proposals for supporting basic and applied research and technology across a broad range of Earth and space science program elements relevant to one or more of the following NASA Research Programs: Earth Science, Heliophysics, Planetary Science, and Astrophysics. Proposal due dates are scheduled starting on May 9, 2008 and continue through March 27, 2009. Electronically submitted Notices of Intent to propose are requested for most program elements, with the first such due date being March 14, 2008. NNH08ZDA001N (GG 1/28/08)
The goal of the Pollution Prevention Information Network (PPIN) grants program is to assist businesses and industries in identifying better environmental strategies and solutions for reducing or eliminating waste. Funds awarded through this grant program support regional work with businesses to reduce the release of potentially harmful pollutants across all environmental media: air, water, and land.

A webcast/teleconference will be offered February 19 & 21 to review Innovation Funding guidelines and answer questions.
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund's Institutional Program Unifying Population and Laboratory Based Sciences is a new institutional training award created to bridge the gap between the population and computational sciences and the laboratory based biological sciences. The goal is to establish training programs that partner researchers working in schools of medicine and schools (or academic divisions) of public health. With those required institutional partners in place, programs have the freedom to involve a diverse range of other potential partners including those working in international settings, industrial settings, national laboratories, laboratories of federal agencies, quantitative population research groups outside of the life sciences (examples include but are not limited to econometrics, demographics, applied mathematics, anthropology, and other fields not typically represented by departments within medical centers.
The Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) aims to foster the development of the knowledge, theories, data, tools, and human capital needed to cultivate a new Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP). The SciSIP program underwrites fundamental research that creates new explanatory models, analytic tools and datasets designed to inform the nation's public and private sectors about the processes through which investments in science and engineering (S&E) research are transformed into social and economic outcomes. The FY 2008 competition includes three emphasis areas: Analytical Tools, Model Building, and Data Development and Augmentation. NSF 08-520
The National Institute of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice, provides objective, independent, evidence-based knowledge and tools to enhance the administration of justice and public safety.
