Program Information:

PURPOSE:

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. The program provides organizations with opportunities to acquire major instrumentation that supports the research and research training goals of the organization and that may be used by other researchers regionally or nationally.

Each MRI proposal may request support for the acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single research instrument for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use. Development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at MRI submission-eligible organizations are encouraged.

The MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of a shared research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs. The program does not fund research projects or provide ongoing support for operating or maintaining facilities or centers.

The instrument acquired or developed is expected to be operational for regular research use by the end of the award period. For the purposes of the MRI program, a proposal must be for either acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single, well-integrated instrument. The MRI program does not support the acquisition or development of a suite of instruments to outfit research laboratories or facilities, or that can be used to conduct independent research activities simultaneously.

Instrument acquisition or development proposals that request funds from NSF in the range $100,000-$4 million may be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization. Proposals that request funds from NSF less than $100,000 may also be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization for the disciplines of mathematics or social, behavioral and economic sciences and from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education for all NSF-supported disciplines.

Cost-sharing of precisely 30% of the total project cost is required for Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations. Non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education are exempt from cost-sharing and cannot include it. National Science Board policy is that voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited.

 ORGANIZATION LIMIT:

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: Three (3) as described below. Potential PIs are advised to contact their institutional office of research regarding processes used to select proposals for submission.

If three proposals are submitted, at least one of the proposals must be for instrument development (i.e., no more than two proposals may be for instrument acquisition).

To ensure a balanced instrumentation award portfolio at diverse organizations, across varied research topics, and in support of a broadly inclusive science and engineering workforce across the entire Nation, the MRI program requires that an MRI-eligible organization may, as a performing organization, submit or be included as a significantly funded 1 subawardee in no more than three MRI proposals. To promote instrumentation development, the program requires that if an organization submits or is included as a significantly funded 1 subawardee in three MRI proposals, at least one of the three proposals must be for (Track 2) instrument development.

NSF reserves the right to carefully examine development (Track 2) proposals to ensure that they meet the requirements for this proposal type (see Section II). If a proposal submitted as development is deemed to be an acquisition proposal either before or during the review, the proposal is subject to return without review or decline.

1An unfunded collaboration does not count against the submission limit. Inclusion as a funded subawardee on a development (Track 2) proposal at a level in excess of 20% of the total budget requested from NSF, or as a funded subawardee on any acquisition (Track 1) proposal, will be counted against an organization's proposal submission limit. Separately submitted linked collaborative proposals of either type (Track 1 or Track 2) count against the submission limit of each of the submitting organizations. However, if a subaward to an organization in a development (Track 2) proposal is 20% or less of the proposal's total budget request from NSF, the subawardee's submission limit will not be affected. For subawards within a linked collaborative proposal, the 20% threshold applies to the budget request from NSF in the proposal containing the subaward(s), not to the combined budget request from NSF for the collaborative project.

Limit on Number of Proposals per PI or Co-PI: There are no restrictions or limits.

BUDGETARY INFORMATION:

General Award Information:

Proposals that request funds from NSF in the range $100,000-$4 million will be accepted from all eligible organizations. Proposals that request funds from NSF less than $100,000 will also be accepted from all eligible organizations for the disciplines of mathematics or social, behavioral and economic sciences and from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education for all NSF-supported disciplines.

Proposers may request an award period up to three years for acquisition proposals and up to five years for development proposals. The anticipated earliest starting date is August 01 in the year of the proposal's submission.

Cost Sharing: The 30% cost-sharing requirement applies to only the portion of the total project cost budgeted to non-exempt organizations, including those participating through subawards. When required, cost-sharing must be precisely 30%. Cost sharing is required for Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations. Non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education are exempt from cost-sharing and cannot provide it. National Science Board policy is that voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited. See section V.B. for specific information on cost-sharing calculations and the solicitation text for definitions of organizational types used for the MRI program.

Program Information:

PURPOSE:

The DMR Partnerships for Research and Education in Materials Research (PREM) program aims to enable, build, and grow partnerships between minority-serving institutions and DMR-supported centers and/or facilities to increase recruitment, retention and degree attainment (which defines the PREM pathway) by members of those groups most underrepresented in materials research, and at the same time support excellent research and education endeavors that strengthen such partnerships.

The PREM program activity is expected to enhance both the quantity and quality of materials research and education opportunities for students and faculty members at minority-serving institutions, and to demonstrably lead to increased diversity in materials research. In this context, the framework includes the partnership, the pathway (i.e. recruitment/retention/degree attainment paradigm), as well as research and education elements to propel participants' progression along the pathway. These opportunities result from long-term, multi-investigator, collaborative research and education partnerships that define a framework where a supportive and stable PREM pathway for promoting inclusiveness in STEM is designed and built. Additionally, the PREM activity may also contribute to and strengthen diversity efforts at partnering institutions (i.e. the DMR-supported centers and facilities).

A PREM typically encompasses research thrust(s) that involve several faculty members addressing materials research topic(s). Sustained support is developed through a collaborative effort by the participants from both partnering institutions that is based on common intellectual interests (either pre-existing or newly identified) and complementary backgrounds, skills, and knowledge. Ideally, the PREM proposal will define a vision for the partnership that simultaneously promotes inclusiveness and research excellence; the proposed research should be aligned with research supported by DMR. The role of each institutional partner should be explicit and project goals to achieve the vision are clearly defined and addressed. Importantly, anticipated challenges and expected outcomes towards increasing diversity and research output must be identified and addressed. Plans for student / faculty reciprocal exchange between partnering institutions are required. Project assessment and evaluation are designed to emphasize an increase in the quality and quantity in diversity, research and education measured relative to the beginning of the award. Successful PREMs can be developed regardless of starting research and capacity levels at the lead institution.

A PREM may address any area of research supported by the NSF Division of Materials Research which includes 8 programs (known as core or topical materials research programs (TMRP)https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=505447): Biomaterials (BMAT), Ceramics (CER), Condensed Matter Physics (CMP), Condensed Matter and Materials Theory (CMMT), Electronic and Photonic Materials (EPM), Metals and Metallic Nanostructures (MMN), Polymers (POL), and Solid State and Materials Chemistry (SSMC). For a detailed description of the research supported by the 8 core programs visit https://www.nsf.gov/materials.

Program Name: High-Impact/High-Risk (HIHR) Research Awards (CPRIT HI/HR)

Internal Competition will be held.  Download Pre-Proposal Form
Internal Competition Deadline:  11-15-2017

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

Sponsor Deadline (CPRIT HI/HR): 01-31-2018

Due by 4PM CST

Program Information:

PURPOSE: 

CPRIT High-Impact/High-Risk (HIHR) Research Awards seek to provide short-term funding to explore the feasibility of high-risk projects that, if successful, would contribute major new insights into the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of cancers. Because HIHR Research Awards are designed to support new ideas, preliminary data are not required. Using this mechanism, CPRIT intends to support innovative, developmental projects that focus on exceptionally promising topics that are not yet sufficiently mature to compete successfully for more conventional funding. The HIHR Research Awards are expected to provide the foundation for individual or multiple investigator awards upon completion.

Applicants must explain why more conventional sources of support are not available for the proposed research and how shortterm funding will lead to strong applications for additional support. Applications that might be described as “mini-R01s” will not be competitive. The goal of this award mechanism is to fund uncommonly great ideas that merit the opportunity to acquire preliminary data. There should be reasons for the idea to be plausible, but CPRIT acknowledges that most of the selected projects will ultimately fail to meet their primary goals. The rare proposals that succeed will be of sufficient importance to justify this program. Applications may address any research topic related to cancer biology, causation, prevention, detection, screening, treatment, or survivorship.

ORGANIZATION LIMIT:

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 5

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

A PI may submit only 1 new or resubmission application under this RFA during this funding cycle. An individual may serve as a PI on no more than three active Academic Research grants. Recruitment Grants and Research Training Awards do not count toward the three-grant maximum, however CPRIT considers project leaders on a MIRA award equivalent to a PI. For the purpose of calculating the number of active grants, CPRIT will consider the number of active grants at the time of the award contract effective date (for this cycle expected to be 8/31/18).

One Co-PI may be included.

An individual may serve as a Co-PI in more than 1 application but should ensure that he or she could dedicate adequate time and effort should more than 1 application be funded. The Co-PI must reside in Texas for the period of the time that the research that is the subject of the grant is conducted.

BUDGETARY INFORMATION:

General Award Information: 

Applicants may request a total of $200,000 for a period of up to 24 months (2 years), inclusive of both direct and indirect costs. 

Cost  Sharing:

Texas law requires that prior to disbursement of CPRIT grant funds, the award recipient must demonstrate that it has an amount of funds equal to one-half of the CPRIT funding dedicated to the research that is the subject of the award.

Indirect Costs:

State law limits the amount of award funding that may be spent on indirect costs to no more than 5% of the total award amount.

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

Sponsor Deadline (NSF RET): 09-19-2018

5pm local time

Program Information:

PURPOSE: 

NSF's Directorate for Engineering (ENG) and the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) have joined to support the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science program. This program supports active long-term collaborative partnerships between K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering, Computer and Information Science, and Mathematics (STEM) in-service and pre-service teachers, full-time community college faculty, and university faculty and students to enhance the scientific disciplinary knowledge and capacity of the STEM teachers and/or community college faculty through participation in authentic summer research experiences with engineering and computer science faculty researchers. The research projects and experiences all revolve around a focused research area related to engineering and/or computer science that will provide a common cohort experience to the participating educators. The K-12 STEM teachers and/or full-time community college faculty also translate their research experiences and new scientific knowledge into their classroom activities and curricula. The university team will include faculty, graduate and undergraduate students as well as industrial advisors. Involvement of graduate students in support of academic-year classroom activities is particularly encouraged. Partnerships with inner city, rural or other high needs schools are especially encouraged, as is participation by underrepresented minorities, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities.

As part of the long-term partnership arrangements, university undergraduate/graduate students will partner with pre-college/community college faculty in their classrooms during the academic year to support the integration of the RET curricular materials into classroom activities.

This announcement features two mechanisms for support of in-service and pre-service K-12 STEM teachers and full-time community college faculty: (1) RET supplements to ongoing ENG and CISE awards and (2) new RET Site awards. RET supplements may be included outside this solicitation in proposals for new or renewed ENG and CISE grants or as supplements to ongoing ENG- and CISE-funded projects. RET in Engineering and Computer Science Sites, through this solicitation, are based on independent proposals from engineering and/or computer and/or information science departments, schools or colleges to initiate and conduct research participation projects for K-12 STEM teachers and/or full-time community college faculty.

ORGANIZATION LIMIT:

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 3

Three Site proposals may be submitted per competition by a U.S. academic institution, including a College/Department of Engineering, Engineering Technology, or Computer and/or Information Science as the lead institution. No more than two of the three proposals may have an engineering focus and only one of the three proposals may have a computer and/or information science focus.

Potential PIs are advised to contact their institutional office of research regarding processes used to select proposals for submission.

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

BUDGETARY INFOMRATION:

General Award Information: The focus of RET Sites is the teacher/community college faculty participant experience, and the budget must reflect this principle. The proposal should include a detailed project budget and budget justification, as described in the PAPPG or the NSF Grants.gov Application Guide. The budget justification should explain and justify major cost items and any unusual situations/inclusions and address the cost-effectiveness of the project. Project costs may include such items as teacher/community college faculty stipends, and travel. A Site may not charge the participant an application fee. These costs must be listed as Participant Support costs (lines F1-F4 in FastLane and Field E in Grants.gov) in the NSF proposal budget.

The total amount which may be requested for a RET Site may not exceed $600,000, with a program duration of up to three years, including no more than $200,000 per year. The program may be carried out during summer months, the academic year, or both. RET Sites must include funds for 10 or more teachers/community college faculty totaling at least $100,000 per year of the budget. The total cost per teacher and/or community college faculty is limited to $10,000 per year, which includes funds for the teacher and/or community college faculty stipend and up to $2,000 for the cost of materials, equipment, software, and other supplies for developing classroom instructions and experiments. The remaining funds, which when combined with teacher/community college faculty support may not exceed a total budget of up to $200,000 per year, may be requested for activities in other cost categories (e.g., salaries, wages and fringe benefits, travel, materials and supplies, and applicable indirect costs) that contribute to the effectiveness of the RET program; any such costs must be listed under the appropriate NSF budget categories and must be explained in the Budget Justification. It is expected that teacher and community college faculty stipends will be adjusted according to their length of residency at the university site and that stipends for in-service teachers will generally be higher than those for pre-service teachers (education majors who are still pursuing their degrees).

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