This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits (R01) grant applications from applicant organizations that propose to develop and pilot test innovative interventions to remediate age-related cognitive decline. These pilot tests are not expected to fulfill criteria for full-scale clinical trials but should help establish the feasibility and likely effect sizes of potential interventions. The interventions developed should be amenable for testing in a randomized clinical trial (RCT). RFA-AG-09-009 (NIHG 7/3/08)
The Science and Technology Centers (STC): Integrative Partnerships program supports innovative, potentially transformative, complex research and education projects that require large-scale, long-term awards. STC's conduct world-class research through partnerships among academic institutions, national laboratories, industrial organizations, and/or other public/private entities, and via international collaborations, as appropriate. They provide a means to undertake important investigations at the interfaces of disciplines and/or fresh approaches within disciplines. STC investments support the NSF vision of advancing discovery, innovation and education beyond the frontiers of current knowledge, and empowering future generations in science and engineering. A single organization may submit a maximum of three preliminary proposals as the lead institution. In no case may an organization request funds as a lead or funded partner organization on more than five preliminary proposals. Full proposals are to be submitted only when invited by NSF.

The National Defense Education Program (NDEP) supports both basic science and/or engineering research within academia as well as education initiatives that seek to create and develop the next generation of scientists and engineers for the defense and national security workforce. The focus of the current competition is to provide faculty and staff scientists and engineers from U.S. accredited, degree-granting academic institutions with a career enhancing opportunity through their association with DoD while at the same time they are conducting unclassified basic research in critical areas of interest. Outstanding researchers selected for award and granted Secret security clearances will participate in all NSSEFF activities that are designed to enhance their understanding of critical research needs and interact with DoD senior leaders. Awardees may be exposed to classified information necessary to enhance the objectives, approach and conduct of their basic research. A NSSEFF award is expected to provide the DoD with revolutionary research that is critical to the future success of our national security. NPSBAA08-005 (GG 6/6/08)
America's Historical and Cultural Organizations grants support traveling or long-term museum exhibitions, library-based projects, interpretation of historic places or areas, interpretive Web sites, or other project formats that creatively engage audiences in exploring humanities ideas and questions. Planning grants can be used to plan, refine, and develop the content and interpretive approach of a project. Applicants should have already conducted preliminary consultation with scholars to help shape the humanities content of the project and with other programming advisers appropriate to the project's format. 20080827-GE (GG 6/30/08)
Grants for Fellowship Programs at Independent Research Institutions (FPIRI) support fellowships at institutions devoted to advanced study and research in the humanities. NEH fellowships provide scholars with research time and access to resources that might not be available at their home institutions. Fellowship programs may be administered by independent centers for advanced study, libraries, and museums in the United States; American overseas research centers; or organizations that have expertise in promoting research on foreign cultures. Individual scholars must apply directly to the institutions themselves. A list of currently funded institutions is available. FPIRI grants provide funding to programs for humanities fellowships of four to twelve months. Fellowship tenure must be continuous. 20080819-RA (GG 5/29/08)
The Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (OFES) of the Office of Science (SC) and the Defense Program (DP) of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), both of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), jointly announce their interests in receiving grant applications including renewals of existing grants in FY 2009 for research in the OFES-NNSA Joint Program in High Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas (HEDLP).
