Deadline: 5/27/2014

Amount: $100,000/2-3 yrs. 

Description: The Elsevier Foundation supports the efforts of libraries to enhance the quality of life in developing countries by advancing knowledge in science, the social sciences, technology, and medicine. The Foundation provides one-, two- and three-year grants to libraries in the developing countries and supporting organizations. Elsevier is particularly interested in: programs to enhance library infrastructure, technology or information services in ways that significantly expand their ability to make STM (scientific/social sciences, technical and medical) information available to those who need it — researchers, clinicians, students, policymakers and the wider public; programs that expand library information resources in the developing world through digitization or preservation of information that advances science, health, the environment, and indigenous knowledge; training and education programs for library staff, students or researchers, contributing to sustainable improvements in the library’s capacity to provide STM information in the developing world; partnerships between libraries in the developing countries and institutions in the developed countries to provide technical assistance or training; and follow-up grants which measure the overall impact of access to information on health, agriculture and the general social and economic well-being of a community.

Title: Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (NSF 14-545)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 6/16/2014

Amount: $150,000

Description: CEDAR is a broad-based, community-guided, upper atmospheric research program. The goal is to understand the behavior of atmospheric regions from the middle atmosphere upward through the thermosphere and ionosphere into the exosphere in terms of coupling, energetics, chemistry, and dynamics on regional and global scales. These processes are related to the sources of perturbations that propagate upward from the lower atmosphere as well as to solar radiation and particle inputs from above. The activities within this program combine observations, theory and modeling.

Title: Chronic Wounds: Advancing the Science from Prevention to Healing (R01) (RFA-NR-15-001)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)

Deadline: 6/24/2014

Amount: $350,000/yr. (direct costs), up to 5 yrs.

Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks to stimulate research that will increase the understanding of biological and psychosocial factors associated with development, progression, and repair of chronic wounds (e.g., diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers) and associated adverse outcomes, and to develop and test interventions aimed at preventing the onset of chronic wounds, expediting the healing process, or alleviating wound-related symptoms. It is anticipated that the findings from this research will expand the body of knowledge needed to identify individuals at the highest risk for developing chronic wounds and to inform the search for tailored treatments to improve outcomes and quality of life for millions of persons at risk for or suffering from chronic wounds.

How to Apply: Submit Letter of Intent directly to sponsor by June 24. Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return Proposal Review Form by June 24.

Title: Geodynamic Processes at Rifting and Subducting Margins (GeoPRISMS) Program (NSF 14-556)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 7/11/2014

Amount: Unspecified

Description: GeoPRISMS will investigate the coupled geodynamics, earth surface processes, and climate interactions that build and modify continental margins over a wide range of timescales. These interactions cross the shoreline and have applications to margin evolution and dynamics, construction of stratigraphic architecture, accumulation of economic resources, and associated geologic hazards and environmental management. The GeoPRISMS Program includes two broadly integrated science initiatives (Subduction Cycles and Deformation and Rift Initiation and Evolution), linked by five overarching scientific topics and themes, where transformative advances are likely to occur in the next decade, and where a focused scientific program could be most effective. These overarching science topics include 1) Origin and evolution of continental crust; 2) Fluids, magmas and their interactions; 3) Climate-surface-tectonics feedbacks; 3) Geochemical cycles; and 5) Plate boundary deformation and geodynamics. Each of the initiatives has identified primary sites for focused investigations, as well as thematic studies that will complement primary site studies.

Description: All four clusters within the Division of Environmental Biology (Population and Community Ecology, Ecosystem Science, Evolutionary Processes and Systematic Biology and Biodiversity Inventories) encourage the submission of proposals aimed at synthesizing a body of related research projects conducted by a single individual or a group of investigators over an extended period. OPUS proposals will often be appropriately submitted in mid-to-late career, but will also be appropriate early enough in a career to produce unique, integrated insight useful both to the scientific community and to the development of the investigator's future work. In cases where multiple scientists have worked collaboratively, an OPUS award will provide support for collaboration on a synthesis.

Title: Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIG) in Cultural Anthropology (NSF 11-547)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 7/18/2014

Amount: $20,000 (plus added indirect costs)

Description: The Cultural Anthropology Program supports basic scientific research about the causes, consequences, and complexities of human social and cultural variability. Cultural anthropologists analyze human social and cultural behavior holistically. This integrated approach makes anthropology a valuable research tool for understanding the modern world. Because cultural patterns are emergent over time and space, there is no single natural scale for ethnographic and ethnological analysis. The origins of social and cultural variability may be remote from the scale at which they are observed. Therefore, research may target any appropriate scale or scales from local to regional to global. The Program encourages innovative research that contributes to building spatially and temporally specific theory that extends understanding beyond individual case studies.
