International Research Experiences for Students
12-551
Full announcement

The International  Research Experiences  for Students (IRES) program supports development of globally-engaged U.S. science and engineering students capable  of performing in an  international research environment  at the forefront of science and engineering.  The IRES program supports active  research participation by students enrolled as undergraduates  or graduate students in any  of the areas  of research funded by the National Science Foundation. IRES projects  involve  students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects  specifically designed for the IRES program.

Physical Oceanography
PD-98-1610
Full announcement

The Physical Oceanography Program supports research on a wide range of topics associated with the structure and movement of the ocean, with the way in which it transports various quantities, with the way the ocean's physical structure interacts with the biological and chemical processes within it, and with interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere, solid earth and ice that surround it.

Chemical Oceanography
PD-98-1670
Full announcement

The Chemical Oceanography Program supports research into the chemical components, reaction mechanisms, and geochemical pathways within the ocean and at its interfaces with the solid earth and the atmosphere. Major emphases include:  studies of material inputs to and outputs from marine waters; orthochemical and biological production and transformation of chemical compounds and phases within the marine system; and the determination of reaction rates and study of equilibria. The Program encourages research into the chemistry, distribution, and fate of inorganic and organic substances introduced into or produced within marine environments including those from estuarine waters to the deep sea.

Biological Oceanography
PD-98-1650
Full announcement

The Biological Oceanography Program supports research in marine ecology broadly defined: relationships among aquatic organisms and their interactions with the environments of the oceans or Great Lakes. Projects submitted to the program for consideration are often interdisciplinary efforts that may include participation by other OCE Programs.

The Burning Foundation Grant
N/A
Full announcement

Letter of intent (full proposal due 10/4/2017).  Environmental Programs: Organizations addressing issues in Washington and Oregon. Priority issue areas include protecting threatened rivers and forests, nurturing native fish populations, and conserving land and open space for ecological and recreational purposes. Preference will be given to requests from local groups working to improve their immediate environment and from statewide groups addressing general conservation and protection issues, rather than national organizations with projects in the Pacific Northwest.

FDA Scientific Conference Grant Program (R13)
PAR-16-378
Full announcement

Letter of intent (full proposal due 10/12/2017).  The purpose of the FDA (R13) Scientific Conference Grant Program is to facilitate the provision of federal financial assistance in support of small conferences and scientific meetings clearly aligned with the FDA mission. The FDA recognizes the value of supporting high quality, small conferences and scientific meetings relevant to its mission and to the public health. A small conference or scientific meeting is defined as a symposium, seminar, workshop, or any formal meeting, whether conducted face-to-face or virtually to exchange information and explore a defined subject, issue, or area of concern impacting the public's health within the scope of the FDA's mission. Permission to submit a conference grant application does not assure funding or funding at the level requested. FDA will not issue a conference grant award unless it can be issued before the conference start date.

Decision, Risk and Management Sciences (DRMS)
PD-98-1321
Full announcement

The Decision, Risk and Management Sciences program supports scientific research directed at increasing the understanding and effectiveness of decision making by individuals, groups, organizations, and society. Disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, doctoral dissertation research improvement grants (ddrigs), and workshops are funded in the areas of judgment and decision making; decision analysis and decision aids; risk analysis, perception, and communication; societal and public policy decision making; management science and organizational design. The program also supports small grants that are time-critical (Rapid Response Research - RAPID) and small grants that are high-risk and of a potentially transformative nature (EArly-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research - EAGER).

Economics
PD-98-1320
Full announcement

The Economics program supports research designed to improve the understanding of the processes and institutions of the U.S. economy and of the world system of which it is a part. This program also strengthens both empirical and theoretical economic analysis as well as the methods for rigorous research on economic behavior. It supports research in almost every area of economics, including econometrics, economic history, environmental economics, finance, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics, and public finance.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
13-542
Full announcement

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. This solicitation features two mechanisms for support of student research: (1) REU Sites are based on independent proposals to initiate and conduct projects that engage a number of students in research. REU Sites may be based in a single discipline or academic department or may offer interdisciplinary or multi-department research opportunities with a coherent intellectual theme. Proposals with an international dimension are welcome. (2) REU Supplements may be included as a component of proposals for new or renewal NSF grants or cooperative agreements or may be requested for ongoing NSF-funded research projects.

Initiative to Maximize Research Education in Genomics: Courses for Skills Development (R25)
PAR-16-090
Full announcement

Letter of intent:  The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.  The over-arching goal of this NHGRI R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs.by supporting short, advanced level courses that are intended to disseminate new techniques, methods, and analyses related to the mission of the NHGRI. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on Courses for Skills Development.
