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
