Limited Funding Opportunities Identified by Sponsored Programs

The National Science Foundation’s Research Traineeship (NRT) Program - NSF 14-548is designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program initially has one priority research theme - Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme.

Under the Research Traineeship program, NSF permits institutions to submit a maximum of two proposals.  Letters of Intent are due May 20, 2014.  Full Proposals are due June 24, 2014.

The National Science Foundation has released the Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) Program announcement (14-544).  The goal of the Scalable Nanomanufacturing program is for research that supports the identification and demonstration of nanomanufacturing processes with high potential to scale to economically and industrially relevant production levels. Although many nanofabrication techniques have demonstrated the ability to fabricate small quantities of nanomaterials, nanostructures and nanodevices for characterization and evaluation purposes, the emphasis of the scalable nanomanufacturing program is on research to overcome the key scientific and technological barriers that prevent the production of useful nanomaterials, nanostructures, devices and systems at an industrially relevant scale, reliably, and at low cost and within environmental, health and safety guidelines.The mode of support is Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT).   Under the Scalable Nanomanufacturing Program, NSF permits institutions to submit only one proposal as the lead institution.   Proposals are due June 16, 2014.

The Department of Energy's Bioenergy Technologies Incubator Program seeks proposals that remove barriers to the production of clean, domestic biofuels that can help displace all fractions of a barrel of crude oil. BETO's mission is to develop and transform our renewable biomass resources into commercially viable, high-performance biofuels, as well as bioproducts and biopower that enable biofuels production, through targeted research, development, demonstration, and deployment. BETO has advanced the technology for producing ethanol from non-food (cellulosic) resources, and is now researching technologies for converting cellulosic and algal biomass into advanced hydrocarbon fuels and products. Under the Bioenergy Technologies Incubator Program DOE permits applicants to submit only one Concept Paper and one proposal.  The deadline for concept paper submission is March 31, 2014.
