Grant applications for innovative partnerships to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. MSP projects are expected to raise the achievement levels of all students and significantly reduce achievement gaps in the STEM performance of diverse student populations. MSP projects contribute to what is known in K-12 STEM education.
For mathematical research in areas of science where computation plays a central and essential role, emphasizing design, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods and algorithms, and symbolic methods. The program emphasizes computation with analysis of the computational approach in the research.
For Expeditions in Training, Research, and Education for Mathematics and Statistics through Quantitative Explorations of Data (EXTREEMS-QED), which aims to educate the next generation of mathematics and statistics undergraduate students to confront new challenges in computational and data-enabled science and engineering (CDS&E).
For fundamental research in mathematics and statistics that addresses the computational and data-related challenges represented by the ever-expanding role of computational modeling and simulation on the one hand, and the explosion in production of digital and observational data on the other. The goal is to promote the creation and development of the next generation of mathematical and statistical theories and tools that will be essential for addressing such issues.
For research and technology advances in tropical cyclone analysis and forecast operations. Supported projects will test and evaluate, and modify if necessary, in a quasi-operational environment, their own scientific and technological research applications. Projects satisfying metrics for success and operational constraints may be selected for operational implementation by the operational center(s) after the completion of the JHT-funded work.
Research on theoretical particle astrophysics and big-bang cosmology as well as more speculative string theory inspired cosmologies. In addition, the program supports infrastructure activities such as short- and long-term visitor programs, workshops, and research centers involving the participation of external scientists from universities, national laboratories, and industry, as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
To improve the representation of African-American students in UC graduate programs, particularly Ph.D. programs, by investing in relationships and efforts between UC faculty and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). UC faculty members will work with undergraduate and master-level research scholars from HBCUs, to encourage enrollment of HBCU scholars in UC graduate programs. Funds will support two types of programs: student summer research internships, and graduate admission pathways grants, which encourage long-term efforts.
Grant applications for basic research on the nature, extent and impact of ocean acidification on oceanic environments in the past, present, and future.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is inviting grant applications for hypothesis-driven Space Biology research proposals in the following areas: 1) ground-based research designed to lead to space flight, 2) rapid turnaround space flight experiments, 3) ISS flight experiments, and 4) new space biology investigations.
The Air Force Research Laboratory is inviting cooperative agreement applications for collaborative research in three areas: 1) adaptive, spatial and temporal, multi-scaling strategies for
long-duration path-dependent combined-environment structural simulation; 2) damage-integrated, structural-thermal, reduced-order models for realistic structural components; and 3) high-fidelity,
continuum-level, constitutive and material damage evolution models.
