Program: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking grant applications from eligible applicants to support environmental education projects that promote environmental stewardship and help develop knowledgeable and responsible students, teachers, and citizens.
Program: NIH solicits applications from U.S. institutions and collaborating foreign (non-U.S.) institutions to study infectious diseases (excluding HIV/AIDS) of public health significance in resource-constrained countries. The collaboration must include, at a minimum, one U.S. institution and one eligible foreign institution. Eligible foreign countries are defined as low-income economies, lower-middle-income economies, and upper-middle-income economies, as defined by the World Bank.
Program: In 2013, a new NSF-funded petascale computing system, Blue Waters, was deployed at the University of Illinois. The goal of the project and system was to open up new possibilities in science and engineering by providing computational capability that makes it possible for investigators to tackle much larger and more complex research challenges across a wide spectrum of domains.
Program: A fellowship opportunity is available in the Division of Laboratory Sciences (DLS) within the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). DLS develops and applies laboratory science to prevent disease and death caused by exposure to toxic substances, and to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of selected chronic diseases.
Program: Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and to prepare programs for production. Grants should result in a script or a design document and should also yield a detailed plan for outreach and public engagement in collaboration with a partner organization or organizations.

Program: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through its National Center for Environmental Research announces the posting of the Request for Applications, 11th Annual P3 Awards: A National Student Design Competition for Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) with the goal of using scientific principals in creating innovative projects focused on sustainability. The applicants will propose to do research, develop and design solutions to real world challenges involving the overall sustainability of human society.
Program: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces a new initiative to support the development of cancer-relevant technologies suitable for use in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Specifically, the NIH solicits applications for projects to adapt, apply, and validate existing or emerging technologies into a new generation of user-friendly, low-cost devices or assays that are clinically comparable to currently used technologies for imaging, in vitro detection/diagnosis, or treatment of cancers in humans living in LMICs.
