19-3 Evaluating the Effects of Conservation Practices on Watershed Health within the Biophysical Setting of a Grazing Land Watershed (USDA)
CSREES requests applications for the Integrated Research, Education, and Extension Competitive Grants Program -- Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) for fiscal year (FY) 2008 to develop research and extension projects aimed at improving the watershed health of grazing land watersheds across the nation. CEAP seeks to fund projects that evaluate the effects of grazing land conservation practices, especially with respect to understanding how the suite of conservation practices, the timing of these activities, and the spatial distribution of these practices throughout a watershed influence their effectiveness for achieving locally defined watershed health goals
SACC supports the development of superior germplasm, establishment and extension of various methods of planting, cultivation, harvesting, processing, and transfer of such applied research from experimental sites to on farm practice as soon as practicable. FY 2008 funding will support Canola research. USDA-CSREES-OP-0015951 (GG 5/7/08)
Mid-America Arts Alliance values the opportunity to bring artists and audiences together. The Latino Culture Project seeks to help presenters find connection points to Latino populations in their communities and educate their existing audiences about Latino culture.

The Office of Global Educational Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for the Greek Teacher Professional Development Project. U.S. public and private universities with schools of education may submit proposals to adminsiter an eight-week professional development program to start in August 2009, for approximately twenty teachers in the humanities from Greece at an early point in their careers as educators. The program will focus on teaching methodology as well as the use of technology in the classroom and should include both an academic component of seminars at a U.S. university's school of education and a practical component of practice teaching with guidance from experienced mentor teachers in local schools. Interested universities should demonstrate strong contacts with local U.S. school districts to facilitate the practical internship component, as well as the faculty resources to conduct a substantive academic program. Host schools for internships may be public, private, magnet or charter schools, and should exemplify educational best practices. ECA-A-S-X-08-06 (GG 5/6/08)
The purpose of this research announcement is to receive proposals for the development of a demonstration program utilizing emerging technologies to: a) support K-12 educational initiatives for professional development curriculum to prepare teachers to lead their students in inquiry based learning and the use of advanced technology; b) develop student curricula utilizing project based learning and advanced technology which supports requirements for science and technology education developed by the Department of Education and c) use emerging technologies to assist students in developing new skills for application in the digital economy in support of the Office of Naval Research's mission of scientific outreach and education in working to develop the next generation of scientists capable to support the continued development of critical technologies in support of the Department of Defense.

The Spencer Foundation was established in 1962 by Lyle M. Spencer. The Foundation received its major endowment upon Spencer's death in 1968 and began formal grant making in 1971. The Foundation is intended, by Spencer's direction, to investigate ways in which education broadly conceived, can be improved around the world. Beginning in February 2006, the Research Grants program began accepting applications that fit within one or more of four areas of inquiry: The Relation between Education and Social Opportunity, Organizational Learning in Schools, School Systems, and Higher Education Institutions, Teaching, Learning and Instructional Resources and Purposes and Values of Education.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to develop and validate new mitochondrial-related biomarkers for cancer early detection, diagnosis, prognosis, risk assessment, and response to preventive and ameliorative treatments.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) invites new or competing renewal applications from institutions with multi-disciplinary investigator teams to participate in the Cooperative Centers for Translational Research on Human Immunology and Biodefense (CCHI) program. The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research on human immunology as it applies to potential agents of bioterrorism or emerging/re-emerging infectious diseases. The immediate objectives are to support basic and translational research on human immunological responses to NIAID Category A, B, or C Priority Pathogens, their toxins, or other emerging/re-emerging diseases and to create the stable, flexible, and centralized infrastructure needed to promote and coordinate multi-disciplinary research in human immunology as it relates to defense against these agents.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), National Institutes of Health (NIH) solicits R01 grant applications that propose intervention research on health promotion, disease prevention, and health disparities that communities and researchers jointly conduct. For the purposes of this FOA, intervention research is quasi-experimental research projects that seek to influence preventive behaviors, treatment adherences, complementary behaviors, and related attitudes and beliefs. Natural experiments also may fall under the interventions rubric. Examples include, and are not limited to, promotion of physical activity-friendly neighborhoods; tobacco, alcohol and drug abuse prevention among youth; a community-led action plan for cancer, hypertension and cardiovascular disease prevention and control in minority populations; establishing safer work practices among agricultural workers in rural areas; nutrition and reducing childhood obesity; HIV/AIDS and STD prevalence among young adults; promoting infant mental health; and reducing health disparities.
