Limited Submissions
Limited submission programs have
sponsor restrictions on the number of
proposals that may be submitted by a
single institution and will require institutional screening to determine which
applications will be submitted. Dr. Jim
Guikema, Associate Vice Provost for
Research, is the internal coordinator for
limited submission programs. Please
notify him at 785-532-6195, email:
[email protected], by the Internal due
date listed in the Funding Bulletin or by
at least two months prior to the sponsor
deadline if you wish to submit to a limited submission program. Currently
posted Internal Deadlines:
1-1 Integrative Graduate Education
and Research Traineeship Program
The Integrative Graduate Education and
Research Traineeship (IGERT) program
has been developed to meet the challenges
of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and
engineers who will pursue careers in
research and education, with the interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in
chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills to become, in
their own careers, leaders and creative
agents for change. The program is
intended to catalyze a cultural change in
graduate education, for students, faculty,
and institutions, by establishing innovative
new models for graduate education and
training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional
disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended
to facilitate diversity in student participation and preparation, and to contribute to a
world-class, broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering
workforce. There is a limit of four (4) preliminary proposals that may be submitted
by an institution either as a single institution or as a lead institution in a multi-institution preliminary proposal. Any given
Vol. 18, No. 1
individual may participate as PI or co-PI
in only one proposals submission. NSF

Deadline: Internal 2/2/2009; Preproposal 3/13/2009
1-2 Research on Gender in Science
and Engineering (GSE) (NSF)
The Research on Gender in Science and
Engineering program supports efforts to
understand and address gender-based differences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)
education and workforce in participation
through research, the diffusion of
research-based innovations, and extension services in education that will lead
to a larger and more diverse domestic
science and engineering workforce.
Innovation through Institutional Integration (I3) projects enable faculty, administrators, and others in institutions to think
and act strategically about the creative
integration of NSF-funded awards. The
Principal Investigator for an I3 proposal
must be the university provost or equivalent chief academic officer or president,
unless the proposal is exclusively for I3
STEM educational or related research.

1-5 Biotechnology Risk Assessment
Research Grants Program (BRAG)
The purpose of the USDA Biotechnology
Risk Assessment Grants Program is to
assist federal regulatory agencies in making science-based decisions about the
effects of introducing genetically engineered organisms into the environment.
Investigations of effects on both managed
and natural environments are relevant.
Applications must seek partial funding for
a conference or address one of the following areas: 1) Identify and develop practices to minimize risks associated with
genetically engineered organisms; 2)
Research methods to monitor the dispersal of genetically engineered organisms; 3) Research to increase knowledge
about the characteristics, rates, and methods of gene transfer that may occur
between genetically engineered organisms, and related organisms; 4) Perform
assessments to provide analysis which
compares impacts of organisms modified
through genetic engineering to other types
of production systems; 5) Other relevant
areas. USDA-CSREES-BRAP-002008

1-6 National Institute on Disability
and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR)-Research Fellowships Program (ED)
The purpose of the Research Fellowship
Program is to build research capacity by
providing support to enable highly qualified individuals, including those who are
individuals with disabilities, to conduct
research on the rehabilitation of individuals with disabilities. ED-GRANTS112808-001 (GG 11/28/08)

Young Faculty Award (DARPA)
The DARPA Young Faculty Award
(YFA) program will identify and engage
rising research stars in junior faculty positions in academia and expose them to
Department of Defense needs and
DARPA’s program development process.
This Research Announcement solicits single investigator proposals for research
and development in the areas of the Physical Sciences, Engineering and Mathematics of interest to DARPA’s

1-8 Innovations in Engineering
Education, Curriculum, and
Infrastructure (IEECI) (NSF)
The Innovations in Engineering Education, Curriculum, and Infrastructure
(IEECI) program supports research which
addresses four aspects of engineering
education: 1) how students best learn the
ideas, principles, and practices to become
creative and innovative engineers, and
how this learning is measured; 2) how
application of cyberlearning resources of
networked computing and communication, interactive visualization capabilities, and well designed user interfaces can
be used to develop easily transportable
tools and systems with low barriers to
adoption which significantly improve
learning; 3) integration of sustainability
into engineering education; and 4) future
directions of U.S. engineering doctoral
programs. NSF 08-610

1-10 Small Research Grants,
Fellowships and Scholarships (KSU/
The KSU NASA Space Grant Consortium
is announcing a call for proposals for its
Small Research Grant program and appli-
cations for its Undergraduate Scholarship
and Graduate Fellowship programs.
Small Research Grants are intended to be
used to assist in the support of student salary, materials/supplies, and travel on
projects directly related to NASA Mission
Directorates and/or to the NASA Education Mission. Undergraduate Student
Scholarships support students working in
Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics. The scholarships are generally intended to be used toward a portion
of the student’s academic-related activities at KSU, professional/educational
activities, or the student’s internships at
NASA facilities. Graduate Student Fellowships support students working in Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics disciplines. Contact Dr.
Kevin Lease, Graduate School, for more

and stalking, and modified the eligibility
criteria as well as the statutory purpose
areas under which projects must be implemented. The Rural Program recognizes
that child, youth and adult victims of
domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking living in rural
jurisdictions face unique barriers to
receiving assistance and additional challenges rarely encountered in urban areas.
In addition, socio-cultural, economic, and
geographic barriers create difficulties for
victim service providers and other social
services professionals to identify and
assist victims of these crimes. The primary purpose of the Rural Program is to
enhance the safety of child, youth and
adult victims of domestic violence, dating
violence, sexual assault, and stalking by
supporting projects uniquely designed to
address and prevent these crimes in rural
jurisdictions. OVW-2009-2001 (GG 12/

1-11 Environmental Remediation
Science Program (DOE)
The Office of Science, U.S. Department
of Energy, announces its interest in
receiving applications for research grants
in the Environmental Remediation Sciences Program (ERSP). The ERSP seeks
to advance fundamental science to understand, predict and mitigate the impacts of
environmental contamination from past
nuclear weapons production and provide
a scientific basis for the long term stewardship of nuclear waste disposal. The
program supports an integrated portfolio
of research ranging from molecular to
field scales with emphasis on the use of
advanced computer models and multidisciplinary, iterative experimentation to
understand and predict contaminant transport in complex subsurface environments.
