Updates - "FY 2007 Broad Agency Announcement Request for Extramural Research, Innovative Projects, and Sponsorships "
  DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admistration (NOAA)
NOAA announces the availability of Federal assistance under the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for fiscal year 2007. The purpose of this notice is to request proposals for special projects and programs associated with the Agency’s strategic plan and mission goals, as described in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section, and to provide the general public with information and guidelines on how NOAA will select proposals and administer discretionary Federal assistance under this BAA. NOAA issued approximately $1 billion in Federal assistance funds in fiscal year 2006. Approximately 81 percent was for
discretionary funding and 19 percent non-discretionary. This BAA is a mechanism to encourage research, technical projects, or sponsorships (e.g., conferences, newsletters, etc.) that are not normally funded through our competitive discretionary programs.

Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research
  Conferences and Workshops
  • In accordance with the mission of the Foundation, priority is given to events that foster the creation of an international community of research scholars in anthropology and advance significant and innovative anthropological research. CONFERENCES are defined as public events that are comprised primarily of oral and poster presentations to a larger audience of anthropologists. The majority of the funds granted to such conferences is expected to be used towards expenses for international scholars who are making presentations at the conference and would not otherwise be able to attend. WORKSHOPS are defined as working meetings that focus on developing and debating topical issues in theoretical anthropology. Workshops involve a small group of scholars who meet for a sufficient period of time to deal intensively with the topic.
  • Eligibility: Conferences: Priority is given to major conferences sponsored by large international anthropological organizations (e.g., the European Association of Social Anthropologists, European Anthropological Association, Pan African Anthropological Association, and Latin American Anthropological Association) that serve as their annual or periodic meetings. Workshops: Priority is given to those workshops that devote the majority of time to discussion and debate rather than to the presentation of papers. It is expected that workshops will result in a publication.
  • Funding: Conference and Workshop Grants are for amounts up to $15,000.

  • Funding: The grants are for a maximum of $30,000 for the research project. Proposals which include the optional training element can have an increased funding request up to a maximum of $35,000, of which no more than $10,000 can be for essential training purposes. Under special circumstances grants can be renewed to support longer-term research projects.
