INTELLIGENCE ADVANCED RESEARCH PROJECTS AGENCY (IARPA)
Robust Energy Sources for Intelligence Logistics in Extreme Novel and Challenging Environments (RESILIENCE) – IARPA is seeking innovative power solutions to support Intelligence Community (IC) applications. Objectives of the RESILIENCE program include power solutions with high energy density, high power density, long calendar life, quiet operation, and robustness to extreme environmental conditions such as large temperature fluctuations, vibration, shock, overcharge and complete discharge.
- Awards: The amount of resources made available under this BAA shall depend on the quality of the proposals received and the availability of funds. Project period for all phases is 45 months.
- Deadline: Nov. 17, 2020
NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES (NEH)
Collaborative Research Program Grants – The Collaborative Research program aims to advance humanistic knowledge through sustained collaboration between two or more scholars. Collaborators may be drawn from a single institution or several institutions across the United States; up to half of the collaborators may be based outside of the U.S. The program encourages projects that propose diverse approaches to topics, incorporate multiple points of view, and explore new avenues of inquiry in the humanities.
- Awards: Up to $250,000, depending on funding category.
- Deadline: Dec. 2, 2020
NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION (NSF)
Research on Emerging Technologies for Teaching and Learning (RETTL) – The purpose of the program is to fund exploratory and synergistic research in emerging technologies (to include, but not limited to, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and immersive or augmenting technologies) for teaching and learning in the future. The program accepts proposals that focus on learning, teaching, or a combination of both. The scope of the program is broad, with special interest in diverse learner/educator populations, contexts, and content, including teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and in foundational areas that enable STEM (e.g., self-regulation, literacy, communication, collaboration, creativity, and socio-emotional skills). Research in this program should be informed by the convergence (synthesis) of multiple disciplines: e.g., learning sciences; discipline-based education research; computer and information science and engineering; design; and cognitive, behavioral, and social sciences.
- Awards: Up to $850,000 for 3 years.
- Deadline: Jan. 25, 2021
NATURAL RESOURCES CONSERVATION SERVICE (USDA-NRCS)
FY 2021 Feral Swine Eradication and Control Pilot Program – NRCS financial assistance for producers and provided through grants is limited to providing financial assistance for activities that will help landowners control the feral swine population. These activities may include, but are not limited to, outreach, training, equipment, and operations for feral swine trapping that are consistent with APHIS technical standards. Subsequent actions, including disposal, are the responsibility of those carrying out the trapping activities, and must occur consistent with all associated federal, state, and local laws.
- Awards: Up to $1,500,000 for up to 3 years. NOTE: 25% match required.
- Deadline: Nov. 5, 2020
FOUNDATIONS AND INDUSTRY
Boehringer Ingelheim Awards for Advancing Research in Respiratory Disease (AWARRD) – Boehringer Ingelheim’s Awards for Advancing Research in Respiratory Disease (AWARRD) program provides funding to practicing veterinarians and researchers for applied research into the porcine respiratory disease complex. Since the program’s inception in 2003, the AWARRD program has funded research into the development of less costly, innovative diagnostic testing and sampling processes; identified more effective biosecurity practices; sought to better understand respiratory diseases; and developed risk assessment tools, intervention programs and vaccination strategies.
- Awards: $35,000
- Deadline: Jan. 15, 2021
National Geographic Society AI for Earth Innovation – The National Geographic Society and Microsoft’s AI for Earth program are partnering to support novel projects that create and deploy AI tools to improve the way we monitor, model, understand, and ultimately manage Earth’s natural resources for a more sustainable future. The grants given by the partnership will support projects that use cloud computing to create and deploy open-source models and algorithms that make key analytical processes more efficient in the field. This partnership is focused on supporting projects that will build tools such as applications, application programming interfaces (APIs), or packages to be shared. Microsoft will help the successful applicants make their models and tools available for use by other environmental researchers and innovators.
- Awards: $5,000-$100,000
- Deadline: Oct. 21, 2020
- NOTE: Informational webinars will be held Sept. 30 and Oct. 6. Register here.
Student/Postdoc: Ford Foundation Fellowship Programs – Predoctoral, Dissertation, and Postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded in a national competition administered by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on behalf of the Ford Foundation. Awards will be made for study in research-based Ph.D. or Sc.D. programs; practice-oriented degree programs are not eligible for support (see eligible fields). Prospective applicants should carefully review the eligibility requirements, the terms of the fellowship awards, application instructions and other information pertaining to the individual fellowship (Predoctoral, Dissertation, or Postdoctoral) for which they are applying.
- Awards: Vary by type of fellowship – range from $27,000-$50,000 for 1 year.
- Deadline: Dec. 10 or Dec. 17, 2020, depending on type.
