The purpose of the NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) is to encourage and retain outstanding graduate students recognized by their institutions for their high potential and strong interest in pursuing careers as independent cancer researchers. The award will facilitate the transition of talented graduate students into successful cancer research postdoctoral appointments, and provide opportunities for career development activities relevant to their long-term career goals of becoming independent cancer researchers.

National Science Foundation (NSF):
NSF will consider supplemental funding requests to support student design projects connected to active NSF grants. The goals of these supplements are the following:
- To connect student design projects to innovative, NSF-supported research and the latest advances in engineering science.
- To expose students to the discovery process of research while preparing them for their roles in the engineering workforce.
- To provide a team of students with the funds necessary to pursue the design process, from need finding, industry and customer discovery, through prototyping and validation.
The PI of an active NSF award (see below for the participating Divisions) may request supplemental funding to support a mentored, student-led design project that is connected to their NSF award. To be eligible, the design-research connection should meet one of the following two criteria:
- A project that builds on scientific advances from the research by applying that knowledge to solve a current challenge.
- A project that challenges students to design a technology, device, or system to complement or augment the methods or aims of the research project.
Participating Divisions – Directorate for Engineering
Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET)
Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI)
Electrical, Communications, and Cyber Systems (ECCS)

On September 25 and 26, 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is planning to host a workshop / industry listening day to discuss research and development related to the integration of advanced process technologies into first generation (1G) ethanol production facilities to co-produce cellulosic fuels, cellulosic sugars, and chemicals from corn fiber, and to convert or activate gaseous carbon dioxide. BETO is particularly interested in information on the development and verification of innovative process technologies and analytical methods to enable integration and retrofit into 1G ethanol plants for cost-competitive production of cellulosic biofuels and bio-products from non-starch feedstocks. The workshop will be held at the Ames Laboratory, which is a DOE National Laboratory, operated by and located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.
