Improving Habitat Quality in Western Big Game Migration Corridors and Habitat Connectivity 2022
Full announcement
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals for projects that enhance and improve the quality of state-identified, or tribal-identified, priority big-game habitat, stopover areas and migration corridors on federal land and/or voluntary efforts on private and tribal land. Projects will promote robust, sustainable populations of big game such as elk, mule deer and pronghorn, have positive effects on a wide diversity of other species and implement strategies that provide for increased habitat connectivity and climate resiliency. Only projects proposed in the state-identified focal areas within Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming will be eligible for funding.

NASA Space Technology Graduate Research Opportunities - Fall 2022 (NSTGRO22)
Full announcement
This call for graduate student space technology research proposals, titled NASA Space Technology Graduate Research Opportunities – Fall 2022 (NSTGRO22), solicits proposals on behalf individuals pursuing or planning to pursue master’s or doctoral (PhD) degrees in relevant space technology disciplines at accredited U.S. universities. It is NASA’s desire to infuse the university-developed space technology through sustained interaction with the graduate researcher and their faculty advisor. NASA Space Technology Graduate Researchers will perform research at their respective campuses and at NASA Centers. Each recipient will be matched with a technically relevant and community-engaged NASA researcher who will serve as the research collaborator on the award. Through this collaboration, graduate students will be able to take advantage of broader and/or deeper space technology research opportunities directly related to their academic and career objectives, acquire a more detailed understanding of the potential end applications of their space technology efforts, and directly disseminate their research results within the NASA community. Awards resulting from this solicitation will be made in the form of grants to accredited U.S. universities with the faculty advisor as the Principal Investigator (PI). November 2, 2021

Cumulative Health Impacts at the Intersection of Climate Change, Environmental Justice, and Vulnerable Populations/Lifestages: Community-Based Research for Solutions Request for Applications (RFA)
Full announcement
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing transdisciplinary research with approaches that explore and analyze environmental problems at the intersection of climate change, environmental justice (EJ), and vulnerable populations/lifestages. Specifically, proposed projects should address all of the following research questions: (1) What may be the most influential community-, population- or lifestage-specific vulnerabilities caused by ongoing climate change that would elevate exposure to pollutants or contaminants and further exacerbate the health effects from exposure to pollutants or contaminants in underserved communities? (2) What are the cumulative health impacts of climate change related stressors on vulnerable groups or susceptible lifestages in underserved communities? (3) How can community-based scientific research results be translated and/or applied to provide effective solutions to reduce climate change impacts on human health in underserved communities? Informational Webinar https://cumulative_health_impacts_climate_change.eventbrite.com Date: Tuesday, October 5, 2021 Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Join us for an informational webinar on this funding opportunity. The webinar will cover application information and provide an overview of what has already been provided in the RFA. November 16, 2021
Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Research (CSTAR) Program
Full announcement
Through the Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Research (CSTAR) Program, the NWS Office of Science and Technology Integration (OSTI) is soliciting proposals to conduct research and development activities. The CSTAR Program represents an 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, social and behavioral sciences. These activities will engage university researchers and students in applied research of interest to the operational meteorological community. The focus of this announcement is on research and development topics related to the improvement of weather, water, and climate services to historically underserved and socially vulnerable communities. There is one grant competition under this announcement valued at approximately $800,000 for five to seven new projects. November 19, 2021
Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases
Full announcement
The program's focus is on both the discovery, as well as on building and testing models that elucidate these principles and processes. Research proposals should focus on understanding the determinants of transmission of diseases to humans, non-human animals, or plants; the spread of pathogens by environmental factors, vectors or abiotic agents; the population dynamics and genetics of reservoir species or alternate hosts; or the cultural, social, behavioral, and economic dimensions of disease transmission.

Coastlines and People (CoPe)
Full announcement
Scientific research into complex coastal systems and the interplay with coastal hazards is vital for predicting, responding to, and mitigating threats in these regions. Understanding the risks associated with coastal hazards requires a holistic Earth Systems approach that integrates improved understanding of and, where possible, predictions about natural, social, and technological processes with efforts to increase the resilience of coastal systems.The Coastlines and People program supports diverse, innovative, multi-institution awards that are focused on critically important coastlines and people research that is integrated with broadening participation goals.The objective of this solicitation is to support Coastal Research Hubs, structured using a convergent science approach, at the nexus between coastal sustainability, human dimensions, and coastal processes to transform understanding of interactions among natural, human-built, and social systems in coastal, populated environments.
