DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD)
Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program – The Department of Defense’s Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking environmental research and development proposals for funding beginning in Fiscal Year (FY) 2022. Projects will be selected through a competitive process.
The Core Solicitation provides funding opportunities for basic and applied research and advanced technology development. The Statements of Need (SON) referenced by this solicitation request proposals related to the SERDP program areas of Environmental Restoration, Munitions Response, Resource Conservation and Resiliency, and Weapons Systems and Platforms.
- Awards: Vary in cost and duration consistent with the scope of the work proposed.
- Preproposals Due: Jan. 7, 2021 by 2pm Eastern
The SERDP Exploratory Development (SEED) Solicitation provides funding opportunities for work that will investigate innovative environmental approaches that entail high technical risk or require supporting data to provide proof of concept. This year, SERDP is requesting SEED proposals for the Munitions Response and the Weapons Systems and Platforms program areas.
- Awards: up to $250,000 and projects are approximately one year in duration
- Preproposals Due: March 4, 2021 by 2:00 p.m. ET.
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH (NIH)
Early Stage Investigator: Stephen I. Katz Early Stage Investigator Research Project Grant – The purpose of the Stephen I. Katz Early Stage Investigator Research Project Grant is to support an innovative project that represents a change in research direction for an early stage investigator (ESI) and for which no preliminary data exist. Applications submitted to this FOA must not include preliminary data. Applications must include a separate attachment describing the change in research direction. The proposed project must be related to the programmatic interests of one or more of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) based on their scientific missions. This FOA does not accept applications proposing clinical trials.
- Awards: Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum project period is 5 years.
- Deadline: Rolling due dates throughout 2021-2023 beginning with January 26, 2021, May 26, 2021, and September 28, 2021
NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
Human Networks and Data Science (HNDS) – The Human Networks and Data Science program (HNDS) supports research that enhances understanding of human behavior and how humans interact with and are influenced by their environments by leveraging data science and network science research across a broad range of topics. HNDS research will identify ways in which dynamic, distributed, and heterogeneous data can provide novel answers to fundamental questions about individual and group behavior. HNDS is especially interested in proposals that provide data-rich insights about human networks to support improved health, prosperity, and security. Two tracks: (1) Human Networks and Data Science – Infrastructure (HNDS-I) and (2) Human Networks and Data Science – Core Research (HNDS-R).
- Awards: 4-5 larger infrastructure awards per year and co-fund up to approximately 20 core research awards per year. Total maximum amount for all awards per year: $8 million. Estimated program budget, number of awards and average award size/duration are subject to the availability of funds.
- Deadline: February 4, 2021 HNDS-I proposals only. HNDS-R proposals will be submitted to the relevant primary program using that program’s deadline.
