These online development dollars are provided to continue the growth of excellent quality distance education initiatives. DCE actively seeks partnerships with the academic departments of colleges of K-State for the purpose of developing programs for online and off campus delivery. This area of enrollment at K-State has grown markedly in the last several years and K-State has been nationally recognized for its innovation and excellence in distance education.
The goal of the Centers will be the development of innovative tools and methods to produce functional membrane proteins for structural studies. Centers should involve multiple, diverse, and cooperating investigators who bring together innovative combinations of scientific disciplines. The Centers will disseminate their results, methods, and materials in a timely manner and establish broad-based collaborations and community training. They will also track state-of-the-art developments in membrane protein production and structure determination and serve as networking centers for the entire Structural Biology Roadmap initiative. The activities of these Centers should complement the activities of investigator-initiated research. RFA-RM-08-019 (NIHG 6/13/08)
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program (STEP) seeks to increase the number of students (U.S. citizens or permanent residents) receiving associate or baccalaureate degrees in established or emerging fields within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Type 1 proposals are solicited that provide for full implementation efforts at academic institutions. Type 2 proposals are solicited that support educational research projects on associate or baccalaureate degree attainment in STEM. An institution that awards baccalaureate degrees is allowed to submit only one Type 1 proposal, or to be part of only one consortium submitting a Type 1 proposal. An institution that awards associate degrees, and does not award baccalaureate degrees, is allowed to be the lead institution on only one Type 1 proposal, and, in addition, may be a partner on one or more Type 1 proposals. There are no restrictions on the number of Type 2 proposals that an individual or organization may submit. NSF 98-569 (GG 6/13/08)
Planetary protection involves preventing biological contamination on both outbound and sample return missions to other planetary bodies. Numerous areas of research in astrobiology/exobiology are improving our understanding of the potential for survival of Earth microbes in extraterrestrial environments, relevant to preventing contamination of other bodies by organisms carried on spacecraft. Research is required to improve NASA's understanding of the potential for both forward and backward contamination, how to minimize it, and to set standards in these areas for spacecraft preparation and operating procedures. Improvements in technologies and methods for evaluating the potential for life in returned samples are also of interest. NNH08ZDA001N-PPR

The CISE Computing Research Infrastructure (CPRI) program drives discovery and learning in the computing disciplines by supporting the creation, enhancement and operation of the world-class computing research infrastructure. Further, through the CRI program CISE seeks to ensure that individuals from a diverse range of academic institutions, including minority-serving and predominately undergraduate instititutions, have access to such infrastructure. The CRI program supports two classes of awards: Institutional Infrastructure awards support either the creation of new computing research infrastructure or the enhancement of existing computing research infrastructure to enable world-class research and education opportunities at the awardee and collaborating institutes. Community Infrastructure awards support the planning for computing research infrastructure, or the creation of new computing infrastructure, or the enhancement of existing computing research infrastructure to enable world-class research and education opportunities for broadly-based communities of researchers and educators that extend well beyond the awardee institutions. In each annual competition, an individual may participate in at most two proposals as PI, Co-PI, or Senior Personnel. NSF 08-570 (GG 6/13/08)
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 of 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. Expeditions represent some of the largest single investments currently made by the directorate. Together with the Science and Technology Centers CISE supports, Expeditions form the centerpiece of the directorate's award portfolio. An individual may participate in no more than one preliminary or full proposal as PI, co-PI, or senior personnel. NSF 08-568 (GG 6/5/08)
The Collaborative Research in Chemistry (CRC) Program was created in 2001 to support collaborative research at the forefront of chemistry. At this time, the Division of Chemistry has decided to move collaborative research proposals back into the disciplinary core of chemistry and review these proposals in the context of other proposals (individual and collaborative) submitted to a disciplinary program. Collaborate proposals may be submitted to any of the Chemistry Disciplinary Research Programs (Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry; Inorganic, Bioinorganic and Organometallic Chemistry; Analytical and Surface-Chemistry; Physical Chemistry) during the usual Chemistry proposal submission windows. Principal Investigators considering submitting a collaborative proposal are strongly urged to contact a cognizant program officer. Contact information is available at the NSF Division of Chemistry website. (NSF 08-052)
