This Week's Announcements:
U.S. Department of Health Services (2/11/2015)
- Street Outreach Program
- This project seeks applications to provide street-based services to runaway, homeless, and street youth who have been to subjected to, or at risk of being subjected to, sexual exploitation and/or sexual abuse. Approximately $4.7 million is available to support 38 awards. The scope of work is to include outreach, individualized assessment, service linkages, case planning, and follow-up for youth. The intent is to increase young people's safety, social, and emotional well-being, self-sufficiency, and help them build permanent connections with families, communities, schools, and other positive social networks. Support will go to projects that implement outreach intervention strategies to keep youth safe an help them leave the streets, coordinate and sustain partnerships to expand access to services to respond to the needs of youth homelessness, and foster service delivery systems that provide protective factors such as skills, attitudes, and behaviors for effective transition into adulthood while reducing risk factors such as substance use, lack of shelter, and disconnection from school or caring adults.
- Deadline: Full proposals due April 10, 2015
National Science Foundation (2/6/2015)
- Cyber-Physical Systems
- This project is looking for proposals for engineered systems that are built from,
and depend on, the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components.
The goal of the CPS program is to develop the core system science needed to engineer
complex cyber-physical systems which people can use or interact with and depend upon.
Three classes of research and education projects -- differing in scope and goals --
will be considered through this solicitation:
- Breakthrough projects must offer a significant advance in fundamental CPS science, engineering and/or technology that has the potential to change the field. This category focuses on new approaches to bridge computing, communication, and control. Funding for Breakthrough projects may be requested for a total of up to $500,000 for a period of up to 3 years.
- Synergy projects must demonstrate innovation at the intersection of multiple disciplines, to accomplish a clear goal that requires an integrated perspective spanning the disciplines. Funding for Synergy projects may be requested for a total of $500,001 to $1,000,000 for a period of 3 to 4 years.
- Frontier projects must address clearly identified critical CPS challenges that cannot be achieved by a set of smaller projects. Funding may be requested for a total of $1,000,001 to $7,000,000 for a period of 4 to 5 years.
- Deadline: Full proposals due May 4, 2015
National Endowment for the Arts (2/4/2015)
- Art Works 2015
- This project seeks to fund programs that foster the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through art. Grants generally range from $10,000 to $100,000.
- Deadline: Full proposals due by February 19, 2015 and July 23, 2015
Department of Defense - Air Force Academy (2/2/2015)
- Research in Computational and Experimental Fluid Dynamics
- This project is focused on developing collaborative research partnerships with other local academic institutions and universities and/or organizations in the areas of experimental and computational fluid dynamics and high performance computing. The ultimate goal is to provide undergraduate cadets at USAFA high quality research experience in both the experimental and computational domains. It is expected that the offeror will assist in developing and executing research projects in collaborations with USAFA cadets and faculty.
- Deadline: Full proposals due February 28, 2015
Previous Week's Announcements:
National Science Foundation & Intel (1/22/2015)
- Partnership on Visual and Experiential Computing (VEC)
- The goal of this joint solicitation between NSF and Intel is to foster novel, transformative, multidisciplinary approaches that promote research in VEC technologies, taking into consideration the various challenges present in this field. This solicitation aims to foster a research community committed to advancing research and education at the confluence of VEC technologies, and to transitioning its findings into practice.
- Deadline: Full proposals due February 20, 2015
National Science Foundation (1/22/2015)
- STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM + C)
- The STEM+C Partnerships program seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and computing by K-12 students and teachers, through research on, and development of, courses, curriculum, course materials, pedagogies, instructional strategies, or models that innovatively integrate computing into one or more STEM disciplines, or integrate STEM content into the teaching and learning of computing. In addition, STEM+C seeks to build capacity in K-12 computing education with foundational research and focused teacher preparation. Projects in the STEM+C Partnerships program should build on research in STEM education and prior research and development efforts that provide theoretical and empirical justification for proposed projects. Pre-service and in-service teachers who participate in STEM+C projects are expected to enhance their understanding and teaching of STEM and computing content, practices, and skills.
- Deadline: Full proposals due April 14, 2015
U.S. Small Business Administration (1/21/2015)
- Veteran Business Outreach Center Program
- This project seeks applications to provide counseling, training, technical, and financial skill development, comprehensive business assessments, and mentoring to veteran, service disabled veterans, active duty, Reserve, Guard, and military spouse/survivor entrepreneurs and small business owners interested in starting new or expanding/diversifying established small businesses. Approximately $4 million is available to support up to 14 awards.
- Deadline: Applications due by February 17, 2015
