Program: The Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) Defense Appropriations Act provides research funding for the peer reviewed programs managed by the Department of Defense (DOD) office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). DOD recently released a pre-announcement (http://cdmrp.army.mil/pubs/press/press.shtml) for the following program:
Investing in science, engineering, and education for the nation's future, the National Science Foundatoin (NSF) has three strategic goals--Transform the frontiers of science and engineering; Stimulate innovation and address societal needs through research and education; and Excel as a Federal Science Agency--to guide the individual and collective efforts involved in achieving the agency’s mission.
The Mississippi-INBRE network seeks to enhance research competitiveness in the State and engage talented investigators and students in biomedical research projects that will impact the health of the citizens of Mississippi. The scientific focus of the MS-INBRE is obesity, cancer, and sexually transmitted diseases. Managed by the University of Southern Mississippi (USM), MS-INBRE is funded by a grant from the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS/NIH).

Program: The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) supports faculty development programs in the humanities for school teachers and for college and university teachers. NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes may be as short as two weeks or as long as five weeks and they:
Program: The Ole Miss Physical chemistry Research Program seeks applicants for a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in 2014. Ten students who have completed their freshman year of college and who have not yet graduated can participate fully in the Ole Miss Physical Chemistry Research Program activities and work on a research project under the direction of a faculty advisor. Student participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, a housing and meal plan for ten weeks, and travel assistance.
Program: UT Knoxville’s Department Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology invites undergraduate science students to apply for hands-on summer research opportunities. Those selected will experience a paid introduction to cutting-edge research in the broad area of “Sensing and Signaling”—the analysis of how signals are perceived and transduced in biological systems. Funded from NSF award DBI-1156744.
Program: NOAA and the Mississippi/Alabama Sea Grant Consortium invite post-masters students from diverse disciplines who are interested in state-level coastal issues to apply for 2-year paid fellowships. Selected finalists will be placed with state coastal resource agencies in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Florida, New Jersey, or Puerto Rico, where they will work on projects related to coastal management.
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: NIST is soliciting applications from eligible colleges and universities in the U.S. and its territories, nominating undergraduate students to participate in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program (SURF Program). The SURF Program will provide research opportunities for undergraduate students to work with internationally known NIST scientists, to expose them to cutting-edge research, and to promote the pursuit of graduate degrees in science and engineering.
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.
The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative has announced the 4th phase RFP, with pre-proposals due January 4th. This will be handled within UM as a limited submission opportunity. As such, those planning to serve as a Consortium Director on a proposal should notify ORSP (Alice Clark or Jason Hale)) no later than December 6, and those planning to serve as IN ANY CAPACITY (PI, co-PI, or collaborator) on any proposal from UM or another instiution must notify ORSP no later than December 13, or after the 13th, immediately upon being invited to collaborate on a proposal.
