Internal Competition Deadline:  08-30-2017

Completed applications should be submitted to GCS via email grantadministrator@uta.edu and should be cc’ed to the Dean of the academic unit.

Sponsor Deadline (NSF IGE): 10-25-2017

Program Information:

PURPOSE: The Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative approaches to STEM graduate education training. The program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master's and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers.

IGE focuses on projects aimed at piloting, testing, and validating innovative and potentially transformative approaches to graduate education. IGE projects are intended to generate the knowledge required for their customization, implementation, and broader adoption. The program supports testing of novel models or activities with high potential to enrich and extend the knowledge base on effective graduate education approaches.

The program addresses both workforce development, emphasizing broad participation, and institutional capacity building needs in graduate education. Strategic collaborations with the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies, national laboratories, field stations, teaching and learning centers, informal science centers, and academic partners are encouraged.

ORGANIZATION LIMIT:

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 2

An eligible organization may participate in two Innovations in Graduate Education proposals per competition. Participation includes serving as a lead organization on a non-collaborative proposal or as a lead organization, non-lead organization, or subawardee on a collaborative proposal.Organizations participating solely as evaluators on projects are excluded from this limitation. Proposals that exceed the institutional eligibility limit (beyond the first two submissions based on timestamp) will be returned without review regardless of the institution's role (lead, non-lead, subawardee) in the returned proposal.

Limit on Number of Proposals per PI or Co-PI: 1

An individual may serve as Lead Principal Investigator (PI) or Co-PI on only one proposal submitted to the IGE program per annual competition. Proposals that exceed the PI/Co-PI eligibility limit (beyond the first submission based on timestamp) will be returned without review regardless of the individual's role (PI or co-PI) in the returned proposal.

BUDGETARY INFORMATION:

General Award Information: IGE Awards (6 to 10 anticipated in FY 2018) are expected to be up to three (3) years in duration with a total budget between $300,000 and $500,000.

Cost Sharing: Inclusion of voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited.

Program Name: George M. O'Brien Kidney Research Core Centers (NIH P30 Kidn)

Internal Competition will be held.  Download Pre-Proposal Form
Internal Competition Deadline:  09-01-2017

Completed applications should be submitted to GCS via email grantadministrator@uta.edu and should be cc’ed to the Dean of the academic unit.

Sponsor Deadline (NIH P30 Kidn): 11-01-2017

Program Information:

PURPOSE: The goal of the O'Brien Kidney Research Center program is to make state-of-the art technologies and resources readily accessible to a broad spectrum of investigators pursuing studies in relevant topic areas.  The emphases for this program are fourfold: (1) to attract new scientific expertise to and develop new tools for the study of human kidney physiology and disorders in humans and in animal and other models; (2) to encourage multidisciplinary research in these areas; 3) To explore new areas with translational potential; and 4) to generate Developmental Research (DR)/Pilot and Feasibility (P and F) studies which could lead to new and innovative approaches to study kidney disease.  

ORGANIZATION LIMIT: 

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: Only one application per institution is allowed.

Limit on Number of Proposals per PI or Co-PI:  Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) (PD(s)/PI(s)) is invited to work with his/her organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.

BUDGETARY INFORMATION: NIDDK intends to commit $4,670,661 in FY 2108 to fund up to 4 awards.  Application budgets are limited to $750,000 in direct costs per year.

Program Name: CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI) Institutional Infrastructure (II) (NSF CRI)

Internal Competition will be held.  Download Pre-Proposal Form
Internal Competition Deadline:  09-04-2017

Completed applications should be submitted to GCS via email grantadministrator@uta.edu and should be cc’ed to the Dean of the academic unit.

Sponsor Deadline (NSF CRI): 11-02-2017

Preliminary Proposals are due 11/2/17. Full Proposals are due 1/11/18.

Program Information:

PURPOSE: The CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI) program drives discovery and learning in the core CISE disciplines of the three participating CISE divisions by supporting the creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure that will support focused research agendas in computer and information science and engineering. This infrastructure will enable CISE researchers to advance the frontiers of CISE research. Further, through the CRI program, CISE seeks to ensure that individuals from a diverse range of academic institutions, including minority-serving and predominantly undergraduate institutions, have access to such infrastructure.

Each Institutional Infrastructure (II) award supports the creation of new (II-NEW) CISE research infrastructure or the enhancement (II-EN) of existing CISE research infrastructure. The proposed research infrastructure must enable compelling new research opportunities for the proposing PI or team of PIs and associated students and collaborators (i.e., for individuals at the awardee and collaborating institutions). II proposals involving multiple investigators from one or more departments and/or institutions are welcome. Projects must include substantial involvement of CISE researchers and enable projects with a clear research focus related to the core CISE disciplines. II proposals that are led by or include 2-year, predominantly undergraduate, and/or minority-serving institutions are especially encouraged. II proposals may request up to $1 million total for project durations not to exceed 3 years.

ORGANIZATION LIMIT:

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 3 for Institutional Infrastructure (II) 

A university or organization may submit no more than three Institutional Infrastructure (II) proposals per competition. There is no limit on Community Infrastructure (CI) proposals per competition.

Limit on Number of Proposals per PI or Co-PI: 2

In each annual competition, an individual may participate in at most two proposals, across all classes, as PI, Co-PI, or Senior Personnel.

BUDGETARY INFORMATION:

General Award Information: NSF expects to make the following types of award(s): Standard or Continuing Grants. Up to 15 Institutional Infrastructure (II) awards. The majority of the II awards will be made in the $200,000 - $750,000 range, though a small number of II awards may be made in the $750,000 - $1,000,000 range. 

Cost Sharing: Inclusion of voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited.
