42-1 Research on the Design of Policies for Pollution Control Using Market Mechanisms, and Data Gathering for Dissertation and Early Career Research on the Pollution Control Aspects of Environmental Economics (EPA)
The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE) is soliciting proposals for Federal assistance for (1) conducting research on the "Design of Policies for Pollution Control Using Market Mechanisms" and for (2) research support for "Data Gathering for Dissertation and Early Career Research on the Pollution Control Aspects of Environmental Economics." This RFP addresses two aspects of environmental economics research: (1) Design of Policies for Pollution Control Using Market Mechanisms. NCEE is interested in supporting research in the design of policies for pollution control using market mechanisms, particularly when multiple, hybrid, or adaptive policies are being used to control one or more externalities. (2) Data Gathering for Dissertation and Early Career Research on the Pollution Control Aspects of Environmental Economics. NCEE has long believed that there is a serious shortage of empirical data to determine the economic benefits, costs, and impacts of measures taken to control pollutants. Although there are substantial academic incentives to write theoretical dissertations and other papers, it is often difficult for graduate students and investigators early in their career to find financial support for empirically-based work in this area. NCEE believes that the provision of such financial support may remedy some of this imbalance. EPA-OPEI-NCEE-08-02 (GG 10/17/08)
The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate investigations, using animal models or human subjects, of neurobiological and behavioral mechanisms that underlie the effects of physical activity on brain function across the lifespan as well as research designed to improve the translation of existing knowledge of the effects of exercise and physical activity into strategies for the prevention and treatment of drug abuse. The proposed line of investigation may focus on any neurobiological, behavioral or cognitive process that has been demonstrated to be affected by drugs of abuse or behaviors related to drug abuse. The research may be conducted in healthy individuals or, if scientifically appropriate, may include substance-abusing populations. All applications, however, must address how the proposed investigations are relevant to the understanding and/or treatment of substance abuse or how they may be implemented in substance abusing populations. The FOA runs in parallel with one other FOA of identical scope that solicits applications under the Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism. (Applicants under the R03 mechanism should refer to RFA-DA-09-014.) RFA-DA-09-013 (NIHG 10/17/08)
As part of the NIH Roadmap for Biomedical Research, the National Institutes of Health invites transformative Research Project Grant (R01) applications from the institutions/organizations proposing exceptionally innovative, high risk, original and/or unconventional research with the potential to create new or challenge existing scientific paradigms.

The AMS Centennial Research Fellowship Program makes awards annually to outstanding mathematicians to help further their careers in research. From 1997-2001, the fellowship program was aimed at recent PhDs. Recently, the AMS Council approved changes in the rules for the fellowships. The eligibility rules are as follows. The primary selection criterion for the Centennial Fellowship is the excellence of the candidate's research. Preference will be given to candidates who have not had extensive fellowship support in the past. Recipients may not hold the Centennial Fellowship concurrently with another research fellowship such as a Sloan or NSF Postdoctoral fellowship. A recipient of the fellowship shall have held his or her doctoral degree for at least three years and not more than twelve years at the inception of the award (that is, received between September 1, 1997 and September 1, 2006.) Applications will be accepted from those currently holding a tenured, tenure track, postdoctoral, or comparable (at the discretion of the selection committee) position at an institution in North America.
This program area supports mathematical research in areas of science where computing plays a central and essential role, emphasizing algorithms design, numerical methods and their analysis, and symbolic methods. The prominence of computation in the research is a hallmark of the program. Proposals ranging from single-investigator projects that develop and analyze innovative computational methods to interdisciplinary team projects that not only create new mathematical and computational techniques but also use them to model, study, and solve important application problems are encouraged.

The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund, a nonprofit private charitable foundation created by the Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks to support wildlife and habitat conservation, research, education, and animal rescue in countries around the world, is accepting grant applications through its new online application system. While the fund recognizes and supports the importance of ex-situ efforts such as endangered species breeding programs and conservation awareness/education, its primary focus is to support conservation efforts directly benefiting wildlife in their native ranges (in-situ). However, the fund will consider ex-situ conservation education proposals that demonstrate significant positive and sustainable impact. (RFPB 9/19/08)
The objective of this solicitation is to stimulate research in the pre-clinical development and testing of novel therapeutic compounds aimed at slowing, halting, or reversing the progressive decline in cognitive function and modifying the behavioral symptoms in Alzheimer's disease (AD); or delaying the onset of or preventing AD, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or age-related cognitive decline. This initiative is intended to stimulate activities focused on providing sufficient data to submit an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to the Food and Drug Administration to begin human clinical testing of potential new therapies. For this program neither mechanistic/basic studies nor clinical trials will be supported; only applications to develop a therapy will be accepted. PAR-08-266 (NIHG 9/19/08)
