Department of Energy (DOE):
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has released a request for proposals (RFP) in support of NREL’s Technology Development and Innovation (TD&I) program to address wind-wildlife operational challenges. The goal of TD&I is to aid the development of wind-wildlife impact mitigation technologies that will facilitate more efficient and cost-effective wind energy deployment across the United States. The subsequent contract(s) will support the advancement and validation of emerging technologies that detect and deter birds and bats from wind energy facilities, as well as the understanding of bat and eagle behavior and physiology for the purpose of advancing impact minimization technologies.
- Awards: Up to $100,000 per awardee for 18 months.
- Cost Share: 20% cost share is required.
- Due: June 10, 2019
National Institute for Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA):
The Beginning Farmers and Ranchers Development Program (BFRDP) provides education, training, mentoring, and internships to beginning farmers and ranchers that help them run successful and sustainable farms. BFRDP is an education, training, technical assistance, and outreach program designed to help U.S. farmers and ranchers, specifically those who have been farming or ranching for 10 years or fewer.
- Awards: $50,000-$600,000 depending on specific grant type; 1-3 years.
- Cost Share: 25% cost share is required.
- Due: FY2019 – May 16, 2019; FY2020 – February 13, 2020
National Institutes of Health (NIH):
The NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and participating NIH Institutes and Centers invite institutional career development award applications for Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) Career Development Programs, hereafter termed “Programs”. Programs will support mentored research career development of junior faculty members, known as BIRCWH Scholars, who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships, and who will be engaged in interdisciplinary basic, translational, behavioral, clinical, and/or health services research relevant to the health of women and, where appropriate, the use of both sexes to better understand the influence of sex as a biological variable on health and disease.
- Awards: $600,000 in direct costs for up to 5 years.
- Letter of Intent Due Date: April 29, 2019
- Application Due Date: May 29, 2019

Founded in 2016, the Science Gateways Community Institute (http://www.sciencegateways.org) was one of the NSF’s first two software institutes funded via the Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure’s Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) program. Tune in to learn more about what science gateways are, gateway success stories, how gateways can further your work and what SGCI services are available at no cost to you. Community events and student programs will be highlighted as well.
