  Updates from the Director

We wish to remind faculty recipients of National Science Foundation (NSF) awards that any students supported by NSF funds (undergrad, graduate, and post doc) must complete Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training.  JMU is offering this training through the CITI training system at: https://www.citiprogram.org/default.asp?language=english
PAR forms and Financial Aid payments to student participants and employees on NSF awards will be not be processed until completion of the RCR training is verified.

Similarly, NIH also has RCR training requirements Effective 1/25/2010:

“NIH requires that all trainees, fellows, participants and scholars receiving support through any new or renewal NIH training, career development award (individual or institutional), research education grant and dissertation research grant must receive instruction in responsible conduct of research. The policy will take effect with all new and renewal applications submitted on or after Jan. 25, 2010, and for all continuation (Type 5) applications with deadlines on or after Jan. 1, 2011. http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-10-019.html

Contents of the Announcement specifically address Format, Subject Matter, Faculty Participation, Duration of Instructions, and Frequency of Instruction.  The notice "1) develops principles based on 20 years’ experience of providing instruction in responsible conduct of research by the scientific research community; 2) is more specific about who should participate, how often instruction should occur, and the form that instruction should take; 3) addresses issues that have arisen as the practice of biomedical, behavioral and clinical science has evolved; and 4) provides guidance to applicants, peer reviewers and NIH staff in determining how well specific plans for instruction in responsible conduct of research compare with the best practices accumulated over the past two decades by the research training community."

National Science Foundation Posts Revised Policy and Procedures Guide

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently posted a revised version of its Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (NSF 10-1), effective for proposals submitted on or after Jan. 4, 2010. The Guide is divided into two main parts: the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award and Administration Guide. At the beginning of each part, NSF lists a "summary of significant changes" included in the 2010 revision. One important change is the inclusion of the mentoring requirement of the America COMPETES Act. A proposal requesting funding to support post-doc researchers must include a description of the mentoring activities that will be provided for these individuals, as outlined in the Aug. 20 Federal Register. Another provision in the act implemented in the Guide is that, "Within 90 days following expiration of the grant, a project outcomes report for the general public must be submitted electronically via Research.gov." NSF cautions that the April 2009 version of the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (NSF 09-29) remained in effect through Jan. 3, 2010.

National Science Foundation Launches Web Page to Further Transparency

While most of Washington, D.C. was digging out from its storm of the century, the National Science Foundation (NSF) was launching a new "open government" Web page. According to the agency, the Web page will allow the public to submit ideas and "comment on and vote for ideas proposed. ... In addition to welcoming general ideas and comments, NSF specifically seeks input regarding access to large data sets and collaborations that aim to facilitate transformative research." The page includes a set of links to NSF reports and data including research grant funding rates, information on grants management and research spending and results, and the NSF's fiscal 2008 Freedom of Information Act report. This Web page, and similar ones from other federal agencies, is an outgrowth of President Obama’s administration's Open Government Directive (see www.whitehouse.gov/Open).

National Institutes of Health Receives 2% Funding Boost, May 1st Deadline to Complete Conflict of Interest Regulations

The fiscal 2010 Omnibus Appropriations Act (Pub. L. No. 111-117), which was signed by President Obama last month, gives the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding of $31 billion, or 2.3% more than in 2009, according to an article in the NIH Office of Extramural Research's January newsletter, Nexus. Although not mentioned in the newsletter, the act also requires the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, by May 1, "to amend regulations at 42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F for the purpose of strengthening federal and institutional oversight and identifying enhancements, including requirements for financial disclosure to institutions, governing financial conflicts of interest among extramural investigators receiving grant support from the National Institutes of Health." NIH already has a start on this effort, having issued an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on conflict of interest last May (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-09-099.html).

UNITED ENGINEERING FOUNDATION
  Grants
  •  The United Engineering Foundation advances the engineering arts and sciences for the welfare of humanity. It supports engineering and education by, among other means, making grants. Grants should be consistent with advancing engineering. The UEF Board of Trustees evaluates and judges proposals in view of the UEF mission, the perceived ability of the proposal and proposer(s) to further that mission, and the available funding. While all proposals meeting established deadlines and page requirements will be considered, certain UEF preferences should be understood by proposers: (a) Broad-based, interdisciplinary proposals that further the engineering profession as a whole are preferred. (b) Multiple-year proposals are welcome, but funding is awarded for a single year only. Proposals for subsequent years follow procedures identical to that of single-year proposals. No commitment for funding of subsequent years of a multiple-year project should be inferred from funding of a prior year. (c) Projects that are outside "business as usual" of the proposing organization are preferred. (d) Technical research proposals and proposals by individuals are seldom accepted.

  • Eligibility: Proposals are accepted from not-for-profit organizations, individuals, and groups of such entities.
  • Funding: It is anticipated that total funding available for 2011 will be in the $700,000 to $750,000 range.

THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS
 

Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth

  • The Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth category offers funding for projects that help children and youth acquire knowledge and understanding of and skills in the arts. Projects must provide participatory learning and engage students with skilled artists, teachers, and excellent art. Funded projects apply national or state arts education standards. All projects submitted to the Learning in the Arts category must include: (a) Experience - Students and their teachers will have the chance to experience exemplary works of art -- in live form where possible. (b) Study - Through the guidance of teachers, teaching artists, and cultural organizations, students will study works of art in order to understand the cultural and social context from which they come, and to appreciate the technical and/or aesthetic qualities of each work. Where appropriate, study will include the acquisition of skills relevant to practicing the art form. (c) Performance - Informed by their experience and study, students will create artwork. In the case of literature, the primary creative activities will be writing and/or recitation. (d) Assessment - Students will be assessed according to national or state arts education standards. Where appropriate, projects will employ multiple forms of assessment including pre- and post-testing.
  • Eligibility: Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes may apply. Applicants may be arts organizations, local arts agencies, arts service organizations, local education agencies (school districts), and other organizations that can help advance the goals of the Arts Endowment.

THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH
 

Academic Research Enhancement Awards

  • The AREA program will enable qualified scientists to receive support for small-scale research projects. These grants are intended to create a research opportunity for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH programs to support the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. It is anticipated that investigators supported under the AREA program will benefit from the opportunity to conduct independent research; that the grantee institution will benefit from a research environment strengthened through AREA grants and furthered by participation in the diverse extramural programs of the NIH; and that available students will benefit from exposure to and participation in scientific research in the biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences. The AREA program is a research grant program and not a training or fellowship program. Active involvement of undergraduate and graduate students in the proposed research is encouraged, and reviewers will consider whether the proposed project will expose undergraduate (preferably, if available) and graduate students to meritorious research. However, the application should not focus on training objectives and training plans should not be provided.
  • Eligibility: Applications are accepted from institutions of higher education that: (1) offer baccalaureate or advanced degrees in the sciences related to biomedical and behavioral and meet the requirement of receiving research grants and/or cooperative agreements from the NIH totaling not more than $6 million per year (in both direct and F&A/indirect costs) in each of four (4) or more of the last seven (7) years; and (2) are a "Health professional school/college" or "other academic component" at a university/college. See the web site for details.
  • Funding: Applicants may request a maximum of $300,000 total direct costs plus applicable Facilities & Administrative (F&A)/indirect costs for the entire project period of up to three years. Note when a consortium is involved, the $300,000 direct cost limit is exclusive of consortium F&A costs. These can be requested in addition to the $300,000 direct costs limit.

THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
 

American Competitiveness in Chemistry-Fellowship (ACC-F)

  • The American Competitiveness in Chemistry-Fellowship program is a program to support postdoctoral associates in chemistry. It seeks to (1) build ties between academic and industrial, and/or national laboratory, and/or Chemistry Division-funded center researchers (partners) and (2) involve beginning scientists in efforts to broaden participation in chemistry. Fellows will pursue research with industrial, and/or national laboratory, and/or Chemistry Division-funded center partners that will enrich their in-house research program. In addition, fellows will develop and implement their own plans for broadening participation in the chemical sciences. Successful applicants must propose a well-integrated, synergistic research plan with their chosen affiliate as well as an effective outreach plan that will broaden participation by underrepresented groups in chemistry. The research must be in a thematic area that is supported by the NSF Division of Chemistry. The Program will support Fellows for two years of postgraduate study. The Chemistry Division envisions that Postdoctoral Fellows with successful programs who pursue careers in academia will have opportunities for significant additional funding, either through supplements to their original ACC-F award, or through new awards from the Division.
  • Eligibility: Fellowship proposals may be submitted by a US university, college, or non-profit, non-academic organization with the prospective Fellow as the Principal Investigator (PI). Fellowship proposals may also be submitted by individuals who are unaffiliated or who are affiliated with for-profit organizations, state or local governments or federal agencies.
  • Funding: $2 million for about 10 awards.
  • Web: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503237

Antarctic Research

  • Scientific research and operational support of that research are the principal activities supported by the United States Government in Antarctica. The goals are to expand fundamental knowledge of the region, to foster research on global and regional problems of current scientific importance, and to use Antarctica as a platform from which to support research. The U.S. Antarctic Program provides support for field work only when a compelling justification exists for doing the work in Antarctica (i.e., the work can only be done, or is best done, in Antarctica). The program also supports Antarctic-related analytical research performed at home organizations.
  • Funding: $22 million in FY 2010, plus up to $30 million in outyear increments for continuing awards. It is estimated that about 50 awards will be made.
  • Web: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5519
  • Deadline: May 25, 2010

Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

  • The Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (TUES) program seeks to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for all undergraduate students. This solicitation especially encourages projects that have the potential to transform undergraduate STEM education, for example, by bringing about widespread adoption of classroom practices that embody understanding of how students learn most effectively. Thus transferability and dissemination are critical aspects for projects developing instructional materials and methods and should be considered throughout the project's lifetime. More advanced projects should involve efforts to facilitate adaptation at other sites. The program supports efforts to create, adapt, and disseminate new learning materials and teaching strategies to reflect advances both in STEM disciplines and in what is known about teaching and learning. It funds projects that develop faculty expertise, implement educational innovations, assess learning and evaluate innovations, prepare K-12 teachers, or conduct research on STEM teaching and learning. It also supports projects that further the work of the program itself, for example, synthesis and dissemination of findings across the program. The program supports projects representing different stages of development, ranging from small, exploratory investigations to large, comprehensive projects.
  • Funding: $35.8 million for 94-108 awards.
  • Web: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5741
