The Army Research Office's Young Investigator Program (YIP) seeks to identify and support academic scientists who have received Ph.D or equivalent degrees within the last five years (on or after 01 November 2002 for this FY 2008 competition) and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research. The objectives of this program are to attract outstanding faculty members of Institutions of Higher Education to the Department of the Army's research program, to support their research, and to encourage their teaching and research careers. This YIP program is in addition to a YIP Program described in the open ARO BAA W911NF-07-R-0003. W911NF-08-R-0002 (GG 2/28/08)
Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) is a competitive grant program that offers an innovative way for a community to organize and take action to reduce toxic pollution in its local environment. Through CARE, a community creates a partnership that implements solutions to reduce releases of toxic pollutants and minimize people's exposure to them. By providing financial and technical assistance, EPA helps CARE communities on the path to a renewed environment.
The Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) manages the basic research investment for the U.S. Air Force (USAF). As a part of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), AFOSR's technical experts foster and fund research within the Air Force Research Laboratory, universities, and industry laboratories. Using a carefully balanced research portfolio, research managers seek to create revolutionary scientific breakthrough, enabling the Air Force and U.S. industry to produce world-class, militarily significant, and commercially valuable products. AFOSR invites proposals for research in many broad areas. AFOSR-BAA-2008-1 (FBO 2/7/08)
IR-4 facilitates minor/specialty crop protection by providing expert assistance with product development and registration. IR-4 positively impacts the ability of research and extension personnel, producers, grower organizations, and others to provide a continuous supply of affordable minor and specialty crops to the public. IR-4 is the only publicly supported research program in the United States that provides this service. FY 2008 IR-4 Program funds four Regional (IR-4) Centers nationwide; and an IR-4 headquarters (HQ). USDA-CSREES-SRGP-001345 (GG 2/20/08)
As part of the Endowment-wide Digital Humanities Initiative, these grants support national or regional (multi-state) research and training programs on approaches in humanities computing. Through these programs, the NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars using digital technology in their research and broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology applications relevant to the humanities. The projects may be a single opportunity or offered multiple times to different audiences, although the duration of a program should allow for full and thorough treatment of the topic. 20080409-HT (GG 12/19/07)
The purpose of this program is to provide grants for or enter into cooperative agreements with eligible applicants to improve postsecondary education. The priority is designed to support the formation of educational consortia of American and European institutions to support cooperation in the coordination of curricula, the exchange of students, and the opening of educational opportunities between the United States and the European Union. 84.116 (FR 2/1/08)
The purpose of the DRRP program is to improve the effectiveness of services by developing methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technologies that advance a wide range of independent living and employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities. Priorities include: Health Care Disparities Among Individuals with Disabilities; Vocational Rehabilitation Service Models for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders; Center on Knowledge Translation for Technology Transfer; Asset Accumulation and Economic Self Sufficiency for Individuals with Disabilities; Research and Knowledge Translation Center for Individuals with Disabilities and Their Families.

A multiple-year Heliophysics Guest Investigators Program (GIP) is offered for investigations that draw extensively upon the data sets from the mission of the Heliophysics Great Observatory. This program is intended to maximize the return from these missions by providing support for research of breadth and complexity beyond those typically being carried out by the presently funded investigations. NNH08ZDA001N-HGI (GG 2/27/08)
The Faculty Development Grants Program recognizes the need to attract and retain highly-qualified junior faculty in academic teaching careers. Funding under this announcement is intended to support new faculty in the nuclear-related fields of Nuclear Engineering, Health Physics, and Radiochemistry. The grants specifically target probationary, tenure-track faculty in these academic areas during the first 6 years of their career. Grants could include support for developing proposals for research and small amounts for initiating or continuing research projects in their areas of expertise. An institution may submit only one proposal. HR-FN208-NED02 (GG 2/15/08)
In 2011, a new NSF-funded petascale computing systems, Blue Waters, will go online at the University of Illinois. The goal of this facility is to open up new possibilities in science and engineering by providing computational capability that makes it possible for investigators to tackle much larger and more complex research challenges across a wide spectrum of domains. The purpose of this solicitation is to invite research groups that have a compelling science or engineering challenge that will require petascale computing resources to submit requests for allocations of resources on the Blue Waters system. Proposals from or including junior researchers are encouraged as one of the goals of this solicitation is to build a community capable of using petascale computing. An individual may be the PI on no more that one proposal that responds to this solicitation. NSF 08-529 (GG 12/31/07)
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters has released a NASA Research Announcement (NRA) for foundational research in support of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD). This NASA Research Announcement (NRA) solicits fundamental research proposals for the four programs within ARMD: the Airspace Systems Program, the Aviation Safety Program, the Fundamental Aeronautics Program and Aeronautics Test Program. The earliest deadline is May 1. NNH08ZEA001N (FBO 2/22/08)
The Theoretical Foundations (TF) program supports basic research into the central issues underlying computer and information science and technology. Research and education projects sponsored by the program strengthen the intellectual foundations of algorithms and theoretical computer science, cryptography, network and communication theory, information theory, numeric and scientific computing, signal processing, and geometric algorithms, and bring advanced mathematical capabilities from these areas to bear on fundamental problems throughout science and engineering. The program encourages investigators to include in their proposals innovative curricula or education materials to help advance the training of new experts in the cognate areas served by TF. NSF 08-518
The University of Kansas' NIH-COBRE Center in Protein Structure and Function is receiving a five year renewal and has the opportunity to add one new Research Project and up to two new Pilot Projects to the center. Research projects must fit well with the scientific theme of the center and utilize one or more of the COBRE Core Labs. COBRE Research Projects are restricted to junior tenure-track faculty members. However Pilot Projects may be awarded to junior faculty, former COBRE graduates, or other faculty making a significant new effort to incorporate aspects of Protein Structure and Function into their research programs.
The United Methodist Health Ministry Fund announces a special allocation of $500,000 for Innovation Funding grants in 2008.
