UPDATED – COVID-19 Guidance for Federal Funding Applicants and Recipients:
Agency Updates Specific to Federal Award Impact (https://www.cogr.edu/institutional-and-agency-responses-covid-19-and-additional-resources):
- Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (3/16/20)
Per FFAR: As the impact of the COVID19 outbreak widens, FFAR is taking steps to keep our employees and stakeholders safe. So effective Monday, March 16, 2020 our offices in DC will be closed until the end of March and, if necessary, longer. Although our offices will be closed, our employees are teleworking and available to help you with your application, review or post-award needs during regular business hours. Please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with questions about your application, review or award. We understand the outbreak may affect your work or cause delays; we are committed to flexible arrangements that may limit the impact on your work as much as possible. Please reach out to the Grants or Science Program teams if you need an extension on any required submission during this time. We will continue accepting and reviewing applications, reviewing progress reports and processing award payments.

Department of Energy (DOE):
The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications from large multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional teams for the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) Institutes. The ASCR program’s mission is to advance applied mathematics and computer science; deliver the most sophisticated computational scientific applications in partnership with disciplinary science; advance computing and networking capabilities; and develop future generations of computing hardware and software tools for science and engineering, in partnership with the research community. A major objective of the ASCR basic research portfolio is to enable DOE-supported science communities to take full advantage of the current and emerging high-performance computing (HPC) systems. ASCR achieves this goal through the SciDAC program. The end product of SciDAC is groundbreaking science through the use of HPC.
- Awards: Up to $8,000,000 per year per multi-institutional collaboration. Cooperative Agreements are expected to be made for a period of five years.
- Deadlines: LOI due April 14, 2020; Application due May 12, 2020
National Institutes of Health (NIH):
This Funding Opportunity Announcement invites applications to conduct patient-oriented clinical research studies designed to develop strategies to mitigate health disparities in people with one or more chronic diseases or conditions within the mission of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). Populations of interest include those disproportionately burdened with multiple chronic conditions and/or disparities in social, behavioral and/or biological risk factors. Only studies that involve interaction with human participants will be considered appropriate for this FOA.
Research approaches relevant for this opportunity may include behavioral, clinical, translational, and/or contextual research in representative populations, including differences across the lifespan. Contextual research is inclusive of sociocultural factors, food environment, built environment, workplace, housing, neighborhood, and/or related environmental factors in the context of their influence on health outcomes. Studies should focus on strategies to mitigate health disparities in populations with one or more chronic disease/conditions within the mission of NIDDK. Studies that seek to engage the community stakeholders or seek to integrate medical and social care interventions are particularly encouraged as are studies that propose to identify and overcome barriers to medical care. Transdisciplinary research studies and clinical trials are of particularly high priority.
- Awards: Up to $1,000,000 direct cost per year for up to 4 years.
- Deadlines: LOI due April 22, 2020; Application due May 22, 2020
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages the submission of applications requiring multi-project, synergistic collaborations blending multiple research approaches from outstanding multidisciplinary research teams. This Center of Excellence for Research on Complementary and Integrative Health (CERCIH) program is designed to support three or more highly meritorious projects that can offer significant scientific advantages and “synergy” that could not be achieved by supporting the same projects as individual research grants. Each CERCIH must be focused on questions of high relevance to the mission of NCCIH and high research priority based on the current Strategic Plan. Applications in response to this FOA may propose to involve human participants in mechanistic studies, but this FOA will not support clinical trials of efficacy or effectiveness.
- Awards: Up to $1,250,000 direct cost per year for up to 5 years.
- Deadlines: Standard dates apply. The first standard due date for this FOA is May 25, 2020. LOI due April 25, 2020.
National Science Foundation (NSF):
The Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) in the Directorate of Biological Sciences (BIO) encourages the submission of proposals to the Systematics and Biodiversity Sciences (SBS) cluster (https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503666) to support research on Poorly Sampled and Unknown Taxa (PurSUiT). The PurSUiT category is meant to encourage biodiversity discovery and description in poorly known, or dark areas, of the Tree of Life. Its incorporation as a special category within SBS reflects a continued effort to close significant gaps in biodiversity knowledge.
Proposals submitted to this category should address expeditionary and exploratory research on organismal diversity that occurs, or used to occur, in natural environments and should aim to advance the discovery, identification, description, classification, and cataloguing of the world’s unknown extant and extinct biodiversity. Research projects must address compelling biodiversity discovery questions and must entail a primarily clade- or guild-based approach (e.g., regional, global, or planetary inventories). Priority will be given to innovative projects that fill significant gaps in biodiversity knowledge and integrate taxon information within an evolutionary or taxonomic framework.
- Proposals must be submitted under the Division of Environmental Biology Core Solicitation (https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf17512)
Limited Submission Opportunities (https://tamu.infoready4.com/#limitedsubmissions):
The Division of Research (DOR) identifies limited submission proposal funding opportunities through internet searches, web services and historical opportunities. Please be aware that the list is not comprehensive. Anyone who wishes to apply to a limited submission RFP that is not posted on this website should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 979.862.2233. The guidelines will be reviewed and an appropriate internal deadline will be established and posted to the website.

The purpose of this RFI and call for future topics conference proposals is to seek input from global industry, institutions of higher education (IHEs), non-profits, government entities, and other interested parties on potential NSF Convergence Accelerator tracks for FY 2021.
Potential NSF Convergence Accelerator tracks for FY 2021 can be related to Industries of the Future (IotF), NSF’s Big Ideas, or other topics, that may not relate directly to an IotF or Big Idea, but nonetheless have the potential for significant national impact. Ideas suggested in response to this RFI should be similar in breadth to NSF 19-050 tracks, which are broad enough to each support a set of related research teams working together as a cohort.
Note that this RFI does not invite research proposals, though the process itself may result in the identification of potential topics for future research funding opportunities. Respondents to this RFI may submit their ideas and they are highly encouraged to also submit conference proposals to develop and refine those ideas so as to incorporate convergence research, breadth, and collaboration among key stakeholders from industry, IHE’s, non-profits, government entities, and other interested parties.
See https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2020/nsf20548/nsf20548.htm for original solicitation.
