The Department of Energy is inviting grant applications for Early Career Research in the following areas: Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR), Biological and Environmental Research (BER), Basic Energy Sciences (BES), Fusion Energy Sciences (FES), High Energy Physics (HEP), and Nuclear Physics (NP). The program supports the development of individual research programs of outstanding scientists early in their careers and stimulates research careers in the areas supported by the DOE Office of Science.
The Department of Energy is inviting grant applications for research to improve the representation of terrestrial ecosystem processes in Earth system models, thereby improving the quality of climate model projections and providing the scientific foundation needed to inform DOE's energy decisions. The program emphasizes non-managed terrestrial ecosystems in the context of a changing climate.
The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for projects that lead to significant and sustainable improvements in STEM learning, advance STEM teaching, and contribute to improvements in the nation's formal education system. Projects should emphasize
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is inviting grant applications for research and technology development to support crew health and performance in space exploration missions.
The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for research to address fundamental questions in three overlapping domains: the Energy Frontier, the Intensity Frontier and the Cosmic
Frontier. The Particle Physics program seeks to explore the fundamental nature of matter, energy, space, and time. It asks such questions as: What are the origins of mass? Can the basic forces of
nature be unified? How did the universe begin? How will it evolve in the future? What are dark matter and dark energy? Are there extra dimensions of space-time?
The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for materials research driven by computation, data, or theory. Areas of interest include but are not limited to new materials design and preparation, structure development, evolution and control, nanoscale materials, multi-scale properties and optimization in all the topical, disciplinary, and interdisciplinary areas represented in Division of Materials Research (DMR) programs.
The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for projects to address cybersecurity education and workforce development. The Scholarship Track provides funding to award scholarships to students in cybersecurity. In return for their scholarships, recipients will work after graduation for a Federal, State, Local, or Tribal Government organization in a position related to cybersecurity for a period equal to the length of the scholarship. The Capacity Track seeks innovative proposals to increase the ability of U.S. higher education to produce cybersecurity professionals.
The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for the ADVANCE program, which aims to develop systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic STEM careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse
science and engineering workforce, and to seminally contribute to and inform the general knowledge base on gender equity in the academic STEM disciplines. UCI is eligible to apply only to the ADVANCE Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation and Dissemination (PAID)
The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for Computing and Communication Foundations (CCF) research and education projects that develop new knowledge in three core programs: Algorithmic Foundations, Communications and Information Foundations, and Software and Hardware Foundations.
DEADLINE: October 9 for medium projects; November 30 for large projects; and December 17
for small projects.
The National Science Foundation, jointly with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) in the UK, is inviting grant applications for research to increase nitrogen availability to crop plants while maintaining or increasing yield, and decreasing the need for fertilizer. Through collaborations among researchers from diverse scientific backgrounds, the goal is to engender new approaches to address the challenge of sustainably producing enough food for a growing population while reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
