U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (10/13/08)
- Integrated Design, Modeling, and Monitoring of Geologic Sequestration of Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide to Safeguard Sources of Drinking Water: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science To Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications to conduct research to support the development of sound risk management strategies for the underground injection of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) in candidate subsurface geologic formations. To further the scientific understanding of this practice, research is needed to investigate how integrating approaches in design, siting, modeling and monitoring of CO2 in the subsurface can provide safe and effective storage, mitigate potential risks, and prevent endangerment of existing and potential sources of drinking water. Deadline is January 6, 2009.

The National Science Foundation (10/07/08)
Broadening Participation Research Initiation in Engineering (BRIGE) Grants: The intent of BRIGE awards is to promote the participation of engineers from all segments of the engineering community, including those from under-represented groups, engineers at minority serving institutions, and persons with disabilities. The purpose of the award is to broaden the participation of and to increase opportunities for all engineers including those from groups underrepresented in the engineering disciplines, in order to encourage individuals to become actively and competitively engaged in research as independent investigators. Deadline is February 13, 2009.
Discovery Research K-12 (DR-K12) Grant Program: The Discovery Research K-12 (DR-K12) program seeks to enable significant advances in preK-12 student and teacher learning of the STEM disciplines through the development, implementation, and study of resources, models, and technologies for use by students, teachers, and policymakers. Activities funded under this solicitation begin with a research question or hypothesis about effective preK-12 STEM learning and teaching; develop, adapt, or study innovative resources, models, or technologies; and demonstrate if, how, for whom, and why their implementation affects learning. Deadline is January 08, 2009.
