GENERAL

2-1 Cross-Discipline Research in Biometrics Science & Technology (DHS)

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate is soliciting applications for cross-discipline biometrics research projects aligned with the mission and requirements of DHS S&T. Research in biometrics--methods to automatically recognize individuals based upon one or more unique physical or behavioral trait--has been historically conducted by the information technology community but this solicitation seeks to significantly improve the performance or application of biometrics by encouraging new cross-discipline research collaborations. Specifically, the S&T Directorate seeks proposals that will significantly advance the performance or application of biometrics in DHS's mission and its component agencies' operations through cross-discipline collaboration including, but not limited to, basic research into: 1) The role of human identity in security; 2) The acceptability and usability of biometrics in DHS' applications; 3) The forensic proof of automated biometric systems; and 4) The acquisition of useful biometric samples independent of the environment.

2-2 NIH Summer Research Experience Programs (R25) (NIH)

The purpose of the NIH Summer Research Experience Program is to provide a high quality research experience for high school and college students and for science teachers during the summer academic break. The NIH expects that such programs will: help attract young students to careers in science; provide opportunities for college students to gain valuable research experience to help prepare them for graduate school; and enhance the skills of science teachers and enable them to more effectively communicate the nature of the scientific process to their students. The programs would also contribute to enhancing overall science literacy. PAR-11-050 (NIHG 12/3/10)

AGRICULTURE

2-3 Special Research Grants Program--Pest Management Alternatives (USDA)

The purpose of Pest Management Alternatives Program (PMAP) is to provide support for the development and implementation of integrated pest management (IPM) practices, tactics, and systems for specific pest problems while reducing human and environmental risks. The successful management of pest problems in commercial production is facing severe challenges due to regulatory changes, emergence of new pest problems, and the development of pest resistance to present management technologies. The greatest impact on current management technologies is in the production of specialty crops; however, other crops, including grain, forage and fiber, as well as animal health, are also being impacted by these changes.

2-4 Organic Research and Extension Initiative (USDA)

The OREI seeks to solve critical organic agriculture issues, priorities, or problems through the integration of research and extension activities. The purpose of this program is to fund projects that will enhance the ability of producers and processors who have already adopted organic standards to grow and market high quality organic agricultural products. Priority concerns include biological, physical, and social sciences, including economics. The OREI is particularly interested in projects that emphasize research and outreach that assist farmers and ranchers with whole farm planning, especially those relating to climate change. USDA-NIFA-ICGP-003388 (GG 11/30/10)

Deadline: 2/10/2011

2-5 Biotechnology Risk Assessment Grants Program (USDA)

The purpose of the BRAG program is to support the generation of new information that will assist Federal regulatory agencies in making science-based decisions about the effects of introducing into the environment genetically engineered organisms (GE), including plants, microorganisms (including fungi, bacteria, and viruses), arthropods, fish, birds, mammals and other animals excluding humans. Investigations of effects on both managed and natural environments are relevant. The BRAG program accomplishes its purpose by providing Federal regulatory agencies with scientific information relevant to regulatory issues. USDA-NIFA-BRAP-003381 (GG 11/19/10)

Deadline: 2/2/2011

ARTS & HUMANITIES

This competition provides funds for both collaborative and individual research projects in the humanities and social sciences in or any country of Eurasia or East-Central Europe (TGA 11/10).

Deadline: 2/15/2011

2-7 Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants (NEH)

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) invites applications to the Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants program. By awarding relatively small grants to support the planning stages, NEH aims to encourage the development of innovative projects that promise to benefit the humanities. Proposals should be for the planning or initial stages of digital initiatives in any area of the humanities. Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants may involve research that brings new approaches or documents best practices in the study of the digital humanities; planning and developing prototypes of new digital tools for preserving, analyzing, and making accessible digital resources, including libraries' and museums' digital assets; scholarship or studies that examine the philosophical or practical implications and impact of the use of emerging technologies in specific fields or disciplines of the humanities, or in interdisciplinary collaborations involving several fields or disciplines; innovative uses of technology for public programming and education utilizing both traditional and new media; and new digital modes of publication that facilitate the dissemination of humanities scholarship in advanced academic as well as informal or formal education settings at all academic levels. 20110223-HD (GG 10/7/10)

Deadline: 2/23/2011

2-8 Landmarks of American History and Culture: School Teachers (NEH)

The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports series of one-week residence-based workshops for a national audience of K-12 educators. NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops use historic sites to address central themes and issues in American history, government, literature, art, music, and other related subjects in the humanities. NEH Landmarks Workshops are held at or near sites important to American History and culture (e.g., presidential residences or libraries; major battlefields; historic districts; parks and preserves; sites of key economic, social, political, and constitutional development; and places associated with major writers, artists, and musicians). 20110301-BH (GG 1/4/11)
