Exploratory/Developmental Grants Program for Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities (R21) and Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities (U01) (NIH)
Grant applications from investigators interested in conducting basic research studies into the biological causes and mechanisms of cancer health disparities. These awards will support pilot and feasibility studies, development and testing of new methodologies, secondary data analyses, and innovative mechanistic studies that investigate biological/genetic bases of cancer health disparities.
To recognize significant accomplishments by individuals in stimulating students, underrepresented in the profession, to elect careers in the chemical sciences and engineering.
To recognize significant accomplishments by individuals who have stimulated or fostered the interest of women in chemistry, promoting their professional developments as chemists or chemical engineers.
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation supports emeritus faculty who maintain active research programs with undergraduates in the chemical sciences. The Senior Scientist Mentor Program provides an award of $20,000 over two years for undergraduate stipends and modest research support. More than one application per department or institution is permitted
The Foundation encourages proposals that are judged likely to significantly advance the chemical sciences. Examples of areas of interest include (but are not limited to): the increase in public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the chemical sciences; innovative approaches to chemistry education at all levels (K-12, undergraduate, and graduate); and efforts to make chemistry careers more attractive. Research proposals are not customarily considered.
Applications most likely to be of interest should describe innovative fundamental research in the chemical sciences or engineering related to the environment. Examples include but are not limited to the chemistry associated with: the climate, the atmosphere, aquatic or marine settings, toxicology, soil or groundwater. Also of interest are chemistry-related energy research (renewable sources, sequestration, etc.), and new or green approaches to chemical synthesis and processing, with a clearly stated relation to the environment.
The U.S. Geological Survey is inviting grant applications for research on earthquake occurrence and effects, with the goal to provide products for earthquake loss reduction to the public and private sectors. Research areas include earthquake hazards, the physics of earthquakes, earthquake occurrence, and earthquake safety policy.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is inviting grant applications for investigators to participate in continuing development toward a Carbon Monitoring System (CMS). NASA has initiated pre-Phase A and pilot studies and a scoping effort for a carbon monitoring system, which are being carried out in 2010-2012 through directed research conducted at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and the NASA Ames Research Center (ARC), guided by a competed Science Definition Team (SDT).
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is inviting grant applications for research to investigate 1) unforeseen or unpredictable Earth system events and opportunities that require rapid response, and 2) novel new ideas of potential high merit and relevance for Earth Science Division (ESD) science that have not otherwise been solicited by NASA in the past three years.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is inviting grant applications for basic research and analysis that enables development of NASA's current and future physical oceanography satellite missions and the scientific interpretation of data from them. The program's primary centers of support are at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Laboratory for Hydrospheric Processes, the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Earth Science Directorate, and the external (non-NASA) scientific community.
