Morris Animal Foundation -
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.

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

NOAA -
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

WSARE -
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.

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.

Conservation Policy Grant
Full announcement

Conservation policy funding Building the power of community leaders and policy-makers to protect our region's air, land, and water. Policy opportunities vary dramatically across the Northwest and reflect each places political environment, conservation history, and local conservation community. Our strategy invests in two or three critical organizations in each state (or province) that demonstrate the leadership, capacity, and track record to enact, implement, enforce, and defend strong conservation policies.
