The On-Farm Conservation Innovation Trials seek to stimulate the adoption and evaluation of innovative conservation approaches in partnership with agricultural producers for projects addressing irrigation management technologies; climate smart agricultural solutions; nutrient management; and/or soil health demonstration.
Climate variability and change present society with significant economic, health, safety, and security challenges. As part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration climate portfolio within the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, the Climate Program Office (CPO) addresses these climate challenges by supporting climate research, observations, monitoring, modeling, assessments, interdisciplinary decision-support research, outreach, education, and partnership development. Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for the following six competitions:
• Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4): Methane across scale
• Climate Observations and Monitoring: Precipitation-related Dataset Development and Analysis
• Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections-National Integrated Drought Information System: Science for the 21st Century Western U.S. Hydroclimate
• Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections: Climate Futures: Projections for Societally-Relevant Problems
• Earth’s Radiation Budget, AC4, and Climate Variability and Predictability: Applications of satellite data to aerosol research
• Climate and Fisheries Adaptation: Promoting resilience and adaptation of U.S. marine fisheries and fishing communities
This funding opportunity supports the development of workforce programs and partnerships that will facilitate the continued deployment of solar energy technologies, while supporting an inclusive workforce with opportunities for career advancement, including through union membership. As part of the whole-of-government approach to advance equity and encourage worker organizing and collective bargaining, this funding opportunity and any related activities will seek to encourage meaningful engagement and participation of labor unions and underserved communities and underrepresented groups.
This funding opportunity provides support to institutions to develop and implement effective, evidence-informed approaches to biomedical research education and mentoring that will keep pace with the rapid evolution of the research enterprise. The National Institute of General Medical Sciences expects that the proposed research education programs will incorporate extensive research experiences, well-designed courses for skills development, mentoring, cohort building activities, and career development elements to prepare recent baccalaureates from diverse backgrounds to transition into and complete rigorous research-focused doctoral degree programs (e.g., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) in biomedical fields.
Note: This program is limited to applications from doctoral degree-granting research-intensive institutions, those with NIH research project grant funding averaging greater than or equal to $7.5 million in total costs per year over the last three fiscal years.
The Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (INCLUDES) is a comprehensive, national initiative to enhance U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discovery and innovation, focused on the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) commitment to ensuring accessibility and inclusivity in STEM fields. The vision of NSF INCLUDES is to catalyze the STEM enterprise to work collaboratively for inclusive change, resulting in a STEM workforce that reflects the diversity of the Nation’s population. More specifically, NSF INCLUDES seeks to motivate and accelerate collaborative infrastructure building to advance equity and sustain systemic change to broaden participation in STEM fields at scale. Significant advancement in the inclusion of groups that have historically been excluded from or underserved in STEM will result in a new generation of STEM talent and leadership to secure the Nation’s future and long-term economic competitiveness. With this solicitation, NSF offers support for five types of projects that connect and contribute to the National Network: (1) Design and Development Launch Pilots, (2) Collaborative Change Consortia, (3) Alliances, (4) Network Connectors, and (5) Conferences. The NSF INCLUDES National Network is a multifaceted collaboration of agencies, organizations, and individuals working collectively to broaden participation in STEM.
