Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology (PRFB)
19-597
Full announcement

The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) awards Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology (PRFB) to recent recipients of the doctoral degree for research and training in selected areas supported by BIO and with special goals for human resource development in biology. The fellowships encourage independence at an early stage of the research career to permit Fellows to pursue their research and training goals in the most appropriate research locations regardless of the availability of funding for the Fellows at that site. For applications under this solicitation, these areas are (1) Broadening Participation of Groups Underrepresented in Biology, (2) Interdisciplinary Research Using Biological Collections, (3) National Plant Genome Initiative (NPGI) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships and (4) Integrative Research Investigating the Rules of Life Governing Interactions Between Genomes, Environment and Phenotypes.

People, Prosperity and the Planet
66.516
Full announcement

The P3 program is a two-phase team competition. For the first phase, interdisciplinary student teams compete for one-year grants of up to $25,000 for project ideas addressing environmental solutions. Recipients use the funding to research and develop their design projects during the academic year. In the spring, Phase I Teams attend the National Student Design Expo to showcase their projects and designs. Phase I teams are eligible to compete for Phase II funding of up to $100,000 to implement their projects in a real-world setting.
P3 was developed to foster progress by achieving the mutual goals of improved quality of life, economic prosperity, and protection of the planet - people, prosperity and the planet. EPA’s P3 Program offers technical solutions to environmental challenges while supporting education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). These grants propel the next generation of scientists, engineers, and researchers to think critically about current events and develop innovative solutions.

The Educational Component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program
G20AS00005
Full announcement

U.S. accredited university Geoscience or related Departments are eligible for EDMAP funds. University professors must write and submit the proposals. EDMAP cooperative agreements are intended to fund students doing geologic mapping in the field. While it is proper for the professors advisors to ask for some logistical support so that they may be with their student(s) in the field for a credible amount of time, the bulk of the award is intended to support the students mapping efforts. EDMAP cooperative agreements do not support faculty salaries. Masters and Doctoral students of Geoscience or related Departments at accredited United States colleges and universities are eligible applicants to the EDMAP Program.

Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Research (CSTAR) Program
NOAA-NWS-NWSPO-2020-2006160
Full announcement

The CSTAR Program represents a NWS effort to create a cost-effective transition from basic and applied research to operations and services through collaborative research between operational forecasters and academic institutions which have expertise in the environmental sciences. These activities will engage university researchers and students in applied research of interest to the operational meteorological community for the provision of improving the accuracy of forecasts and warnings of environmental hazards. This announcement is for research and development topics identified as priorities by the NWS to support field forecasting operations. There is one grant competition under this announcement valued at approximately $600,000 for three to five new projects

Research to Grass Roots Grants
-
Full announcement

These grants are built on the SARE concept that results of applied research are used to train agricultural professionals and producers in the latest principles of sustainable agriculture. Successful R2GR projects will take the research results from previously funded SARE projects and bring those results into the field through education to ag professionals and producers. The maximum for each project's funding is $50,000.

Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases
19-592
Full announcement

The multi-agency Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases program supports research on the ecological, evolutionary, and social drivers that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases. The central theme of submitted projects must be the quantitative or computational understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics. The intent is discovery of principles of infectious disease transmission and testing mathematical or computational models that elucidate infectious disease systems. Projects should be broad, interdisciplinary efforts that go beyond the scope of typical studies. They should focus on the determinants and interactions of transmission among humans, non-human animals, and/or plants

Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) Science Team
NNH19ZDA001N-SWOTST
Full announcement

The objective of this announcement is to select a Science Team to assist with prelaunch planning and immediate post-launch scientific exploitation of the SWOT mission. The selection will be conducted in coordination with CNES, CSA, and UKSA. The Science Team will function for the period 2020 through 2024. Its role, along with relevant scientific research, will be to provide expert guidance to the SWOT project in the areas of measurement requirements, product definition, geophysical error sources, algorithm development, calibration, validation, and liaison with the broader science and applications communities.
