National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) Program 
18-507
Full announcement

The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training. The NRT program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers.

Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) of Genomics Small Research Grant Program (R03)
PA-17-445
Full announcement

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites Small Research Grant (R03) applications to study the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of human genome research.  These applications should be for small, self-contained research projects, such as those that involve single investigators.  Of particular interest are projects that propose normative or conceptual analyses, including focused legal, economic, philosophical, anthropological, or historical analyses of new or emerging issues.  This mechanism can also be used for the collection of preliminary data and the secondary analysis of existing data.

Dear Colleague Letter: Hydrologic Sciences and Physical and Dynamic Meteorology Cooperation
N/A - NSF
Full announcement

To encourage interactions between the Hydrologic Science and Physical and Dynamic Meteorology research communities in advancing this critical research, a community workshop was held 3-5 September, 2014 in Golden, Colorado. The purpose of this workshop was to motivate and accelerate progress on hydrometeorological-hydroclimatic-ecohydrological process understanding across the terrestrial-atmospheric boundary, and especially the integration of common research interests of hydrology and meteorology. The results of the meeting are reported in a white paper that can be accessed via the link above. Within this context, innovative proposals that specifically address challenges existing at the atmospheric-terrestrial boundary, including challenges in process understanding, measurement and modeling can be sent to either program. Topical areas are suggested in the referenced white paper, however this document does not define all possible research areas across this boundary. Proposals in this area of research will be co-reviewed by both programs and will be supported from existing programmatic funds. Proposals are accepted at any time in both the PDM and HS programs. If you have a research topic that you think would be of interest, please contact the program officers in either group.

Land Cover/ Land Use Change
NNH19ZDA001N-LCLUC
Full announcement

The NASA LCLUC program supports research at the intersection of physical and social science involving the use of remotely sensed data. The program encourages the development of early career scientists that excel in this area of research. There is a growing community within academia, including students, that is engaging in interdisciplinary research of societal relevance. This solicitation aims to help build the next generation of experts, which will contribute to the goals of the NASA LCLUC program. The eligible proposers (both PI and Co-Is) should have their Ph.D. degree awarded no earlier than 2014, so that at the time of submission of the full proposal (March 2020) a proposer would be no more than 6 years after the Ph.D. degree

Long-Term Ecological Research
19-593
Full announcement

RENEWAL Projects only. Two components differentiate LTER research from projects supported by other NSF programs: 1) the research is located at specific sites chosen to represent major ecosystem types or natural biomes, and 2) it emphasizes the study of ecological phenomena over long periods of time based on data collected in five core areas. Long-term studies are critical to achieve an integrated understanding of how components of ecosystems interact as well as to test ecological theory. Ongoing research at LTER sites is expected to contribute to the development and testing of fundamental ecological theories and significantly advance understanding of the long-term dynamics of populations, communities and ecosystems.

Rapid Response and Novel Research in Earth Science
NNH19ZDA001N-RRNES
Full announcement

This subelement is focused on research proposals having great urgency for action involving quick-response research on natural or anthropogenic extreme events and/or similar unanticipated or unpredictable events that fall outside the norm. Examples are major fires, volcanic eruptions, 100-year floods, episodes of severe and large-scale environmental pollution, harmful algal blooms, coral bleaching events, and other unexpected large-scale events causing rapid environmental change. The proposal must include clear statements as to 1) why the proposed research is of an urgent nature, 2) why the proposed research is of high significance and likely to have a long-lasting impact, 3) why this ROSES program element is the only feasible mechanism to request NASA support for the proposed work, and 4) a detailed plan on data dissemination and sharing.

Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP)
18-579
Full announcement

The Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) supports genome-scale research that addresses challenging questions of biological, societal and economic importance. PGRP encourages the development of innovative tools, technologies and resources that empower a broad plant research community to answer scientific questions on a genome-wide scale. Emphasis is placed on the scale and depth of the question being addressed and the creativity of the approach. Data produced by plant genomics should be usable, accessible, integrated across scales and of high impact across biology. Training, broadening participation, and career development are essential to scientific progress and should be integrated in all PGRP-funded projects.

2018 National Fish Habitat Action Plan
F18AS00020
Full announcement

ACCEPTED ON ROLLING BASIS

 

The Fish and Wildlife Management Assistance Program provides technical and financial assistance to other federal agencies, states, local governments, Native American tribes, non governmental organizations, citizen groups, and landowners for the conservation and management of fish and wildlife resources. This includes minimizing the establishment, spread, and impact of aquatic invasive species. Specifically, aquatic habitat conservation projects under this program must protect, restore, and enhance fish and aquatic habitats, as outlined in the National Fish Habitat Action Plan (Action Plan). Projects under this program enhance recreational fishing opportunities for American sportsman and women by improving aquatic habitat that increases fish and aquatic populations.
