Landmarks of American History and Culture workshops (Landmarks) situate the study of topics and themes in the humanities within sites, areas, or regions of historic and cultural significance to expand participants’ knowledge of and approaches to teaching about diverse histories, cultures, traditions, languages, and perspectives in the United States and its jurisdictions.

National Science Foundation Using the Rules of Life to Address Societal Challenges proposals due February 15, 2023

The goal of this program is to support use-inspired research that tackles pressing societal challenges. Principles that govern living systems, their architecture, metabolism, physiology, communication, and regulation provide valuable insights into how those systems effectively interact with each other and with the environment. Cells, organisms, ecosystems, and biomes all develop mechanisms to utilize and share resources, recycle nutrients and materials, and adapt to environmental perturbations, both individually and collectively, thereby addressing challenges similar to those faced by society today.

National Science Foundation Research and Mentoring for Postbaccalaureates in Biological Sciences proposals due February 16, 2023

The Research and Mentoring for Postbaccalaureates in Biological Sciences program invites the submission of proposals to establish networks to support full-time research, mentoring, and training for recent college graduates who have had few or no research or training opportunities during college in research fields typically supported by the Directorate of Biological Sciences. A strategic focus of the National Science Foundation is to foster the growth of a globally-competitive and diverse research workforce. To that end, proposals submitted to this program are expected to create strong evidence-based, inclusive and culturally-aware mentorship programs that will advance the goal of creating a competitive and highly representative STEM workforce in the U.S. with a focus on the biological sciences. Projects are expected to train individuals for a range of potential career pathways in the biological sciences including: research-focused M.S. or Ph.D. graduate programs; entry-level positions in industry, federal, tribal, or state agencies, education and research centers, or not-for-profit science-based organizations; or other STEM careers.

National Science Foundation Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure proposals due February 17, 2023

The objective of the Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI) program is to advance scientific discovery and innovation by enhancing the security and privacy of cyberinfrastructure. CICI supports efforts to develop, deploy and integrate cybersecurity that will benefit the broader scientific community by securing science data, computation, collaborations workflows, and infrastructure. CICI recognizes the unique nature of modern, complex, data-driven, distributed, rapid, and collaborative science and the breadth of infrastructure and requirements across scientific disciplines, practitioners, researchers, and projects.

National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program proposals due February 17, 2023, or November 15, 2023

The Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training in institutions of higher education and not-for-profit scientific/engineering research organizations. MRI provides support to acquire critical research instrumentation without which advances in fundamental science and engineering research may not otherwise occur. MRI also provides support to obtain next-generation research instruments by developing instruments with new capabilities that open new opportunities to advance the frontiers in science and engineering research. Additionally, an MRI award is expected to enhance research training of students who will become the next generation of instrument users, designers and builders.

National Science Foundation releases Paleoclimate Grant solicitation

The goals of the paleoclimate program are to: provide a baseline for present climate variability and future climate trends, and improve the understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that influence climate variability and trends over the long-term. Research topics include observational and modeling studies of past climate variability and its drivers and studies that develop new paleoclimate proxies and records. Competitive proposals will address specific aspects of scientific uncertainty for their proposed research. Proposals are welcome at any time during the year for the Paleoclimate Program but, investigators are encouraged to submit proposals early in the fiscal year.
