Exploratory Grant Award to Promote Workforce Diversity in Basic Cancer Research (R21)
PAR-15-053
Full announcement

The purpose of this FOA is to enhance the diversity of the NCI-funded research workforce by supporting and recruiting eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences workforce. This funding opportunity will also provide a bridge to investigators that have completed their research training and may need extra time to develop a larger research project grant application.

Emerging Questions in Cancer Systems Biology (U01)
PAR-16-131
Full announcement

Full proposal (letter of intent was due 5/24/2017).  The CSBC initiative aims to address challenges in cancer research through the use of experimental biology or population science combined with in silico modeling, multi-dimensional data analysis, and systems engineering.  This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites cooperative agreement applications for Research Projects that utilize systems biology approaches to address emerging questions in cancer initiation, progression, and treatment. CSBC Research Projects are expected to involve interdisciplinary teams of physical scientists (e.g., engineers, chemists, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists, population scientists, statisticians, epidemiologists) and cancer researchers (e.g., cancer biologists, oncologists, pathologists and clinicians in relevant disciplines) who collaborate to advance our understanding of cancer biology and oncology. CSBC Research Projects proposed in response to this FOA must demonstrate explicit integration of experimental biology and computational modeling to test and validate novel hypotheses in cancer research.

National Forest Foundation -
National Forest Foundation (NFF) Matching Awards Program (MAP)
N/A
Full announcement

The National Forest Foundation (NFF) Matching Awards Program (MAP) provides funding for results-oriented on-the-ground projects that enhance forest health and outdoor experiences on National Forests and Grasslands. MAP supports the implementation of on-the-ground conservation and restoration projects that have an immediate, quantifiable impact on the National Forest System. These projects provide a lasting impact to the lands, waters, and wildlife of the National Forest System through the alteration of the physical environment. The current NFF strategic plan focuses on the Program Areas of Outdoor Experiences and Forest Health. Organizations may self-select into one of the Program Areas defined below, or choose to submit a proposal that cohesively integrates the two Program Areas. Projects that strongly integrate the program areas are highly encouraged. The NFF does not have funding targets for the Program Areas, and strongly encourages applicants to integrate the programs areas cohesively in their proposals.

NCI Small Grants Program for Cancer Research (NCI Omnibus R03)
PAR-16-416
Full announcement

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) supports small research projects on cancer that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.

Research Answers to NCI's Provocative Questions (R21)
RFA-CA-17-018
Full announcement

Full proposal. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research projects designed to solve specific problems and paradoxes in cancer research identified by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Provocative Questions initiative. These problems and paradoxes phrased as questions are not intended to represent the full range of NCI's priorities in cancer research. Rather, they are meant to challenge cancer researchers to think about and elucidate specific problems in key areas of cancer research that are deemed important but have not received sufficient attention. Letter of intent due 30 days prior to application date.

National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation (NGWREF) USA Groundwater Fund
N/A
Full announcement

USA Groundwater Fund was established by the National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation (NGWREF) to help fund water supply projects as well as education and training projects within the United States of America.  USA Groundwater grants shall be for groundwater supply projects (GSP) and/or education and training program (ETP). An ETP must be for groundwater development, well construction, well head protection, well pumping systems and/or maintenance of wells and pumping systems.  A GSP must serve the general public in a community setting. An ETP must be primarily for education and training of US residents.  Applicant should have a history of not less than three years of demonstrated success in projects for groundwater water supply.  NGWREF grants are awarded through a competitive process. NGWREF particularly encourages and values those proposals that bridge the gap between research and practical applications of the research findings. NGWREF encourages the use of Foundation funds to support student research training.

The Conservation, Food & Health Foundation -
Conservation, Food and Health Grants Program
NA
Full announcement

LETTER OF INTENT - Incorporated in 1985, the Conservation, Food and Health Foundation seeks to promote the conservation of natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and improve health in the developing world. The foundation helps build capacity within developing countries in its three areas of interest with grants that support research or projects that solve specific problems.
The foundation supports projects that demonstrate strong local leadership, promote professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develop the capacity of local organizations; and address a particular problem in the field. It prefers to support projects addressing under-funded issues and geographic areas.
