National Institutes of Health (NIH) – see limited submissions section below for additional NIH opportunities
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) seeks US domestic research projects that address how food insecurity effects HIV comorbidities, coinfections, and complications (CCCs) within the mission of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The approaches may address the pathways linking food insecurity and the development or exacerbation of CCCs; or they may evaluate the mechanisms whereby interventions that alleviate food insecurity improve CCCs. These mechanisms could be related to nutritional inadequacies or patient health-related behaviors.
- Awards: $500,000 per year for up to 5 years.
- Deadline: Letters of intent due February 9, 2020; full applications due March 9, 2020.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports the development of new exploratory research in cancer diagnosis, treatment, imaging, symptom/toxicity, and prevention clinical trials; correlative studies associated with clinical trials; novel cancer therapeutic, symptom/toxicity, and preventive agent development, radiotherapy development activities, and mechanism-driven combinations; innovative preclinical studies, including the use of new clinically-relevant models and imaging technologies, which could lead to first-in-human clinical trials, and therapeutic outcome disparities, including biomarkers or genetic/epigenetic signatures, among diverse racial/ethnic populations, including genetically engineered mouse models, patient-derived xenograft models, organoids, and cell lines.
- Awards: $275,000 in direct cost for 2 years.
- Deadline: Applications due October 18, 2019; February 20, 2020, June 19, 2020; October 20, 2020.

On September 25 and 26, 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office will host a workshop to identify data and R&D needs to enable the use of dedicated energy crops and algae for restoring water quality and enhancing soil health, while creating a new feedstock supply for the bioeconomy. Participants will discuss the current state of technologies relevant to both terrestrial and algal biomass, as well as the potential for these technologies to reverse environmental degradation and provide important ecosystem services. If successful, these technologies have the potential to increase availability and reduce costs of bioenergy and bioproducts.
The workshop will focus on the current state-of-the-art and R&D needs pertaining to:
- Using dedicated energy crops to improve water quality and soil health (e.g., enhanced soil carbon levels) and provide other benefits
- Algae technologies including direct harvest of algal blooms, turf scrubbers, and macroalgae
- Quantification and valorization of ecosystem services
- Low-cost sensors and data management systems that enable production of dedicated energy crops and algae
- Overcoming challenges of integrating biomass production for restoration with bioenergy feedstock supply chain needs
Date and Time:
September 25: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
September 26: 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Fall 2019 National Science Foundation (NSF) Grants Conference (Registration opening Sept. 5)
Save the Date! Join us on November 18-19, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Grants Conference! The Fall 2019 NSF Grants Conference will be held at the Boston Marriott Cambridge.
These events are designed to give new faculty, researchers and administrators key insights into a wide range of current issues at NSF. NSF program officers representing each NSF directorate will be on hand to provide up-to-date information about specific funding opportunities and to answer attendee questions.
Registration will open on Thursday, September 5 at 12 p.m. EST. We anticipate the conference will reach capacity very quickly, so we encourage you to register as soon as it opens. We will send an email reminder to our listserv on Wednesday, September 4.
In the meantime, please feel free to check NSFGrantsConferences.com for the most up-to-date information, and view recordings of sessions from last year’s event. You may also contact us via email at email@example.com.
