1-3 Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program (IGERT) (NSF)

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program has been developed to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers who will pursue careers in research and education, with the interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills to become, in their own careers, leaders and creative agents for change. The program is intended to catalyze a cultural change in graduate education, for students, faculty, and institutions, by establishing innovative new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended to facilitate diversity in student participation and preparation, and to contribute to a world-class, broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering workforce. There is a limit of four (4) preliminary proposals that may be submitted by an institution either as a single institution or as a lead institution in a multi-institution preliminary proposals.

1-4 Research on Gender in Science and Engineering (GSE) (NSF)

The Research on Gender in Science and Engineering program supports efforts to understand and address gender-based differences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and workforce participation through research, the diffusion of research-based innovations, and extension services in education that will lead to a larger and more diverse domestic science and engineering workforce. Typical projects will contribute to the knowledge base addressing gender-related differences in learning and in the education experiences that affect student interest, performance, and choice of careers; how pedagogical approaches and teaching styles, curriculum, student services, and institutional culture contribute to causing or closing gender gaps that persist in certain fields. NSF 10-516 (GG12/14/09)

Deadline: Letters of Intent 2/10/2010, 9/6/2010; Proposals 3/23/2010, 10/14/2010


1-5 IceBridge (NASA)

IceBridge is a new NASA airborne mission making altimetry, radar, and other geophysical measurements to monitor and characterize the Earth's cryosphere. The IceBridge mission began operation in 2009 and will continue until the launch of ICESat-2, currently estimated for early 2016. The Earth's cryosphere is in a period of rapid change. Understanding these changes, their causes, and impacts is critically important to understanding the impacts of future global climate change. Data collected under the IceBridge program will make fundamental contributions to understanding changes occurring in extent and thickness of the Arctic sea ice cap and contribute to improved modeling of the increases in global sea level from the world's major ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.

1-6 Precision Measurement Grants Program (NIST)

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announces that the Precision Measurement Grants Program is soliciting applications for financial assistance for FY2010. The Precision Measurement Grants Program is seeking proposals for significant research in the field of fundamental measurement or the determination of fundamental constants. NIST sponsors these grants and cooperative agreements primarily to encourage basic, measurement-related research in universities and colleges and other research laboratories and to foster contacts between NIST scientists and those faculty members of academic institutions and other researchers who are actively engaged in such work. The Precision Measurement Grants are also intended to make it possible for researchers to pursue new ideas for which other sources of support may be difficult to find. 2010-PMGP-01 (GG 12/29/09)
