Professional + Producer
-
Full announcement

This grant program involves agricultural professional (main applicant) and producers implementing projects to address identified needs in sustainable agriculture. With the collaboration of producers, projects must integrate research and education aiming to advance the three components of sustainable agriculture- environmental, economic, and social- and use innovative educational outreach to disseminate new knowledge to producers and other agricultural stakeholders. It is expected that outcomes of funded projects will result in quantifiable benefits for producers, increase the preservation of the natural and social resources upon which agriculture relies, and be shared with other producers. Professional + Producer projects are limited to $50,000 for up to three years.

Interdisciplinary Science in Earth Science
NNH19ZDA001N-IDS
Full announcement

Proposed research investigations will meet the following criteria: a) offer a fundamental advance to our understanding of the Earth system; b) be based on remote sensing data, especially satellite observations, but including suborbital sensors as appropriate; c) go beyond correlation of data sets and seek to understand the underlying causality of change through determination of the specific physical, chemical, and/or biological processes involved; d) be truly interdisciplinary in scope by involving traditionally disparate disciplines of the Earth sciences; and e) address at least one of the specific themes listed this solicitation:Volcanoes in the Earth System; Interactions Between Sea Ice and the Atmosphere; Polar Ocean/Biology/Biogeochemical Coupling; The Life Cycle of Snow; Impacts of urbanization on local and regional hydrometeorology; Space Archaeology: Using the Past to Inform the Present and Future; Exploring the Microbial Biodiversity of the Atmosphere.

Wildlife/Exotics Grants - Pilot Study Grants
Full announcement

The mission of Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) is to advance the science of animal health. Toward this aim, we are dedicated to funding hypothesis-driven and humane animal health research projects of high scientific merit and potential impact. Relevant projects promise to advance the health and well-being of companion animals and/or wildlife. The Pilot Study Grant is designed to provide funding for innovative ideas to accelerate discovery and advance MAFs mission. Amount: The maximum amount for a pilot study is $10,000 plus indirect costs (total maximum award $10,800). Duration: Maximum study duration is one year. Equipment: $5,000 Salary: Salary for technicians, residents, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows should be detailed with regard to percent time commitment to the project. MAF does not pay for tuition. Requests for salary for principal investigators with less than full-time appointments must be clearly defined and must include percent appointment and other current salary support. Requests for salary for full time faculty appointments will not be approved. Travel: Travel expenses required to complete the project should be clearly justified. Expenses for PI to travel to scientific meetings are limited to $3,000. Indirect costs: MAF allows up to 8 percent of the budget to be applied to indirect costs, if your institution charges for these costs. Where a subaward to another institution is proposed, the total indirect costs may not exceed 8% of the total budget.

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.
