Integrative Research in Biology
21-622
Full announcement
This solicitation invites submission of collaborative proposals that tackle bold questions in biology and require an integrated approach to make substantive progress. Integrative biological research spans subdisciplines and incorporates cutting-edge methods, tools, and concepts from each to produce groundbreaking biological discovery. The research should be synergistic and produce novel, holistic understanding of how biological systems function and interact across different scales of organization, e.g., from molecules to cells, tissues to organisms, species to ecosystems and the entire Earth. Such knowledge is critical to inform solutions to societal challenges, including natural resource management, resilience to environmental change, and global food security. Outcomes from integrative research will also inform and guide the development of new technologies that drive the nation’s bioeconomy January 25, 2022

Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program
-
Full announcement
The Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration grant program seeks to develop community capacity to sustain local natural resources for future generations by providing modest financial assistance to diverse local partnerships focused on improving water quality, watersheds and the species and habitats they support. Projects include a variety of ecological improvements along with targeted community outreach, education and stewardship. Ecological improvements may include one or more of the following: wetland, riparian, forest and coastal habitat restoration; wildlife conservation, community tree canopy enhancement, water quality monitoring and green infrastructure best management practices for managing run-off. Grants for this program are available nationwide. January 25, 2022

Research Coordination Networks in Undergraduate Biology Education
22-522
Full announcement
The goal of the RCN-UBE program is to link biological research discoveries with innovations in biology education to improve the learning environment in undergraduate biology classrooms. The program seeks to improve undergraduate education by leveraging the power of a collaborative network recognizing that neweducational materials and pedagogies can simultaneously teach biological concepts while creating a supportive and engaging learning environment for all. TheRCN-UBE program supports groups of investigators to communicate and coordinate their research, training, and education. The theme or focus of an RCN-UBE proposal can be on any topic likely to advance this goal, and activities across disciplinary, organizational, geographic, and international boundaries are encouraged. Acknowledging thatstudents’ educational pathways vary,networks that include under-resourced institutions as full, equitable partners are highly desired. Understanding thatpeople from diverse backgrounds bring different experiences and viewpoints, the RCN-UBE program is interested inproposals that include individuals from traditionally underrepresented in biological research and education as members of the steering committee. Lastly, the RCN-UBE program is also interested in developing, testing, and sharing best practices that can transform the online learning environment. January 25, 2022

Young Faculty Award (YFA)
DARPA-RA-21-03
Full announcement
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award (YFA) program aims to identify and engage rising stars in junior research positions in academia and equivalent positions at non-profit research institutions, particularly those without prior DARPA funding, to expose them to Department of Defense (DoD) needs and DARPA’s mission to create and prevent technological surprise. YFA will provide high-impact funding to elite researchers early in their careers to develop innovative new research that enables transformative DoD capabilities. Ultimately, YFA is developing the next generations of researchers focused on national security issues. January 25, 2022

Water Quality Benefits
EPA-G2022-STAR-D1
Full announcement
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing research that will address how measurable attributes of water quality improvements can be valued, either directly or through indicators. Research under this Request for Applications (RFA) is intended to focus on national level studies and/or valuation for underrepresented water body types and regions, improvements to water quality indices, and environmental justice valuation.

2022 RFA
-
Full announcement
The NCSFR funds projects up to $50,000 per year. Projects may receive funding up to three years with successful review annually. If a multi-year project is funded one year, there is no guarantee that funds will be available for subsequent years. Considerations for funding renewal are based evaluation of the quality and quantity of research progress, completion of grant reporting requirements, and availability of funds. January 28, 2022
L'Oréal USA -
For Women in Science Fellowship
Full announcement
The For Women in Science program was created out of a simple belief: the world needs science, and science needs women because women in science have the power to change the world. The L’Oréal USA For Women in Science fellowship program awards five women postdoctoral scientists annually with grants of $60,000 each for their contributions in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields and commitment to serving as role models for younger generations. Candidates must have completed their PhD and have started in their postdoctoral research position by the application deadline. January 28, 2022

Taking Action: COVID-19 Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Challenge
-
Full announcement
NSF is seeking submissions in a 3-page narrative format describing the steps that IHEs have taken, or will take, to mitigate the long-term negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on DEI in STEM. The “Taking Action: COVID-19 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Challenge” is an ideas challenge for Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs). The challenge is designed to highlight the need for institutional solutions to mitigate the long-term, negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) of undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). All eligible IHEs are encouraged and invited to submit descriptions of institutional actions that have been implemented, or will be implemented, such as new and revised policies, procedures, and practices to ensure continued progress toward more diverse, equitable, and inclusive STEM higher education programs and institutions. For more details, please read the Participants’ Guide in its entirety. January 30, 2022
