Increasingly funding sources are including in their program announcements limits on the number of applications an organization can submit to the program. For current programs ORSP has identified as having organizational limits, an Internal Deadline has been established in the event that an internal competition to select applicants is necessary. This listing is not all-inclusive. If you are aware of new announcements that include organizational limits, please notify Beverly Page, Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, 532-5045, firstname.lastname@example.org, so that an announcement with an internal deadline can be included in the Funding Bulletin and included on this list.
Calendar months link to internal deadlines, not actual program deadlines. Please consult the listings on a regular basis since they are updated as new information becomes available.

This solicitation is jointly sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Chemistry (CHE) to encourage synergy and enhance cooperation in examining the life cycles of synthetic chemicals and materials as they relate to their manufacture, use, transport, and disposal or recycle. The Networks for Characterizing Chemical Life Cycle (NCCLCs) will promote development of trans-disciplinary, systems- and molecular-level understanding of the life cycle of important (relevant) synthetic chemicals and materials (including nanomaterials) as these distribute and are potentially altered through use in society and interaction with the built and natural environments. Education, workforce development, and the translation or transfer of basic research results into social or economic benefits are critical aspects of NCCLC projects. It is expected that research teams in the NCCLC awarded under this solicitation will coordinate / communicate with the funded research networks from the EPA/NSF Networks for Sustainable Molecular Design and Synthesis (NSMDS) solicitation. Only one proposal may be submitted from an eligible entity. NSF 13-524
This solicitation is jointly sponsored between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Divisions of Chemistry and Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) to encourage synergistic research activities and to enhance cooperation among the chemical sciences, materials research, geosciences, engineering, and biomedical and public health communities. The agencies jointly issue the solicitation, but will separately fund awards for Networks for Sustainable Molecular Design and Synthesis (NSMDS). Networks for Sustainable Molecular Design and Synthesis are groups of two or more researchers working in trans-disciplinary fields to promote the development of safe and sustainable chemicals as well as safe and sustainable synthetic procedures. Advances resulting from these Networks are expected to result in chemicals that are safer and more sustainable throughout their life cycle and thus, the replacement of rare, toxic, and expensive chemicals with earth abundant, benign, and renewable alternatives is anticipated. Education, workforce development, and the translation or transfer of basic research results into social or economic benefits are critical aspects of NSMDS projects. It is expected that research teams in the NSMDS awarded under this solicitation will coordinate / communicate with the funded research networks from the EPA/NSF Networks for Characterizing Chemical Life Cycle (NCCLC) solicitation. Only one proposal may be submitted from an eligible entity. NSF 13-523
The Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program funds research and educational projects that improve ethics education in all fields of science and engineering that NSF supports, with priority consideration given to interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international contexts. Although the primary focus is on improving ethics education for graduate students in NSF-funded fields, the proposed programs may benefit advanced undergraduates as well. NSF 11-514
The purpose of the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) Program is to develop the pool of a diverse group of highly trained undergraduate and graduate students who go on to research careers and will be available to participate in NIH-funded research. The program provides institutional grants to research-intensive institutions that propose well-integrated developmental activities designed to increase students' academic preparation and skills that are critical to the completion of the Ph.D. degree in biomedical and behavioral sciences. Only one application per institution is allowed. PAR-13-082 (NIHG 1/11/13)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Institutes of Health (NIH), encourages Research Education Grant (R25) applications from institutions that propose to develop recent baccalaureate science graduates from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral sciences so that they have the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue PhD or MD-PhD degrees in these fields. The program provides support for well-designed academic enhancements and extensive research experiences aimed at preparing individuals from diverse backgrounds to complete PhD or MD-PhD degree programs in these disciplines. Only one application per institution is allowed. PAR-13-085 (NIHG 1/11/16)
1-7 High Performance Computing System Acquisition: Building a More Inclusive Computing Environment for Science and Engineering (NSF)
The NSF's vision for Advanced Computing Infrastructure (ACI), which is part of its Cyberinfrastructure for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21), focuses specifically on ensuring that the science and engineering community has ready access to the advanced computational and data-driven capabilities required to tackle the most complex problems and issues facing today's scientific and educational communities. To accomplish these goals requires advanced computational capabilities within the context of a multilevel comprehensive and innovative infrastructure that benefits all fields of science and engineering. The current solicitation requests innovative proposal of two types: The first is intended to complement previous NSF investments in advanced computational infrastructure. Consistent with the ACI Strategic Plan, the current solicitation is focused on expanding the use of high end resources to a much larger and more diverse community. The second type is devoted to the increasing pressure on the existing infrastructure to store and process very large amounts of data coming from simulation and from experimental resources such as telescopes, genome data banks or sensors. An organization may submit only one proposal but may be a sub-awardee on other proposals responding to this solicitation. NSF 13-528
