National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA):
All USDA Small Business Innovation Research Program Phase II projects must have previously completed a successful Phase I project before applying for a Phase II grant. Projects dealing with agriculturally related manufacturing along with alternative and renewable energy technologies are encouraged across all 2018 SBIR topic areas. SBIR’s flexible research areas ensure innovative projects are consistent with USDA’s vision of a healthy and productive nation in harmony with the land, air, and water.
- Awards: Up to $600,000 for 24 months
- Deadline: May 27, 2020
National Institutes of Health (NIH) – see Limited Submissions section below for additional NIH opportunities:
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) invites qualified investigators from domestic institutions of higher education to submit an application for Superfund Research Program (SRP) R01 Individual Research Project grant program. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) focuses on research that will advance mechanistic understanding and effectiveness of bioremediation through incorporation of advanced, novel materials science approaches. Bioremediation refers to the use of biota (bacteria, algae, fungi, plants, etc.) to reduce or detoxify hazardous substances in the environment. Bioremediation is a cost-effective, low-energy-intensive remedy that has contributed to the cleanup and closure of sites impacted by hazardous substances. In recent decades, bioremediation has advanced from reliance upon culturing and biogeochemical processing to a technology-enabled field enhanced by high throughput molecular approaches (e.g. ‘omics and gene editing techniques). These new approaches have elucidated molecular mechanisms responsible for contaminant cleanup and provided insight for potential solutions to naturally degrade emerging contaminants. Concurrent advances in materials science present an opportunity to integrate new approaches to further refine our understanding of the mechanisms of bioremediation and optimize conditions to accelerate natural degradation and/or stabilization processes. This Funding Opportunity Announcement calls for teams including bioremediation materials science (e.g. nanotechnology, microenvironmental engineering, etc.) to submit applications to advance the knowledge and practice of bioremediation to address current and emerging recalcitrant hazardous substances and complex mixtures.
- Awards: Up to $200,000 in direct cost per year for up to 5 years.
- Deadlines: Letters of intent due March 20, 2020; full applications due April 20, 2020.
National Science Foundation (NSF):
With this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS) in the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) encourages submission of proposals to its core programs focused on IMAGiNE: Integrating Mechanisms of Adaptation with Genes in Networks and across Environments. This DCL encourages integrated studies that will investigate how genomes, phenomes, and the environment interact to influence the development, expression and evolution of complex traits.
IOS encourages submission of the following types of proposals:
- Research proposals to support fundamental research relevant to the core programs in IOS that investigates how genomes, phenomes, and the environment interact to influence the development, expression, and evolution of complex traits. The environment in this context is meant to encompass either abiotic or biotic factors, or a combination of both factors.
- Conference proposals that would bring together teams of scientists to address key challenges to advancing the goals of IMAGiNE.
- Research Coordination Network (RCN) proposals to build collaborative networks of scientists in diverse disciplines to coordinate and expand avenues of research addressing the goals of IMAGiNE.
Limited Submission Opportunities (https://tamu.infoready4.com/#limitedsubmissions):
Special Announcement: The Division of Research has implemented a brand new proposal submission and internal review portal. The system will be used for limited submissions and most internal grant programs. You will find available opportunities at:
The limited submission office will be phasing in the portal as new limited submission opportunities arise. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Shelly Martin at 979-862-2233.

EVANS LIBRARY ANNEX
Sound data management practices can ensure compliance with funding requirements and increase your productivity. This workshop will teach you how to think about your data so that you can manage it more easily throughout your research process. We will cover best practices for documentation, versioning, backup, sharing, and preservation. This workshop will also introduce you to the Texas Data Repository where you can publish data to increase the impact of your research. This is workshop is open to graduate students, faculty, and staff in all disciplines.
