NSF/FDA Scholar-in-Residence at FDA - NSF 10-533
The National Science Foundation (NSF), through the Directorate for Engineering's Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), through its Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) have established the NSF/FDA Scholar-in-Residence Program at FDA. This program comprises an interagency partnership for the investigation of scientific and engineering issues concerning emerging trends in medical device technology. This partnership is designed to enable investigators in science, engineering, and mathematics to develop research collaborations within the intramural research environment at the FDA. This solicitation features four flexible mechanisms for support of research at the FDA: 1) Faculty at FDA; 2) Graduate Student Fellowships; 3) Postdoctoral Fellowships; and, 4) Undergraduate Student Research Experiences. Undergraduate student participants supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.

F18AS00091 Great Ape Conservation Fund Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service
In response to the decline of ape populations in Africa and Asia, the U.S. Government enacted the Great Ape Conservation Act of 2000. The Act provides for the conservation and protection of apes by supporting conservation programs in countries within their ranges and the projects of persons and organizations with demonstrated expertise in ape conservation. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) works closely with national governments, U.S. agencies, and a range of other partners to ensure a strategic, results-based approach to ape conservation in Africa and Asia. The Great Ape Conservation Fund (GACF) is soliciting project proposals for the conservation of gorillas (Gorilla spp.), chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes), bonobos (Pan paniscus), orangutans (Pongo spp.), and gibbons (family Hylobatidae) throughout their ranges.

Ekhagastiftelsen Foundation Grant Program: Seeking Applications for Promoting Human Health
Ekhagastiftelsen Foundation is seeking applications for its grant program to promote human health by supporting the development of better food, natural medicines and healing practices, and to support research for a healthier way of life, which in itself may have a disease preventive effect. A central idea is to focus more on preventive active care than reactive care to combat symptoms. The same applies to the agricultural and food areas where the focus should be to find methods that can prevent various problems instead of focusing on their manifestations.

Michigan Office of the Great Lakes request proposals to evaluate Great Lakes Restoration impacts
The OGL is announcing a Request for Proposals for a research project to value the economic impact of restoration work conducted by its Areas of Concern Program. The selected project team will develop a modeling tool to support the program. The information produced by the tool will help inform decisions and provide data to demonstrate the economic value of Great Lakes restoration activities. The grant program will occur in two phases. The first phase will provide up to $100,000 to develop conceptual diagrams, assess available ecosystem modeling tools, and analyze existing economic research. The second phase allows for up to $200,000 to develop the tool.

Lloyd's Register Foundation Grants
Our funded programmes relate to the four strategic themes in our strategy: supporting excellent scientific research; accelerating the application of research; advancing skills and education; and promoting safety and public understanding of risk. Our approach is to be inclusive, acting as a catalyst and working with partners and others with similar aims to ourselves, focusing our funding in the areas of supporting excellent research, education and training, accelerating the application of research, and public engagement.

HM0476-18-BAA-0001 National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Academic Research Program (NARP) Department of Defense National Geospatial Intelligence Agency
NGA welcomes all innovative ideas for path-breaking research that may advance the GEOINT mission. The NGA mission is to provide timely, relevant, and accurate geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) in support of national security objectives. GEOINT is the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial information to describe, assess, and visually depict physical features and geographically referenced activities on the Earth. GEOINT consists of imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial information. NGA offers a variety of critical GEOINT products in support of U.S. national security objectives and Federal disaster relief, including aeronautical, geodesy, hydrographic, imagery, geospatial and topographical information. The NGA Academic Research Program (NARP) is focused on innovative, far-reaching basic and applied research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics having the potential to advance the GEOINT mission. The objective of the NARP is to support innovative, high-payoff research that provides the basis for revolutionary progress in areas of science and technology affecting the needs and mission of NGA. This research also supports the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG), which is the combination of technology, systems and organizations that gather, produce, distribute and consume geospatial data and information. This research is aimed at advancing GEOINT capabilities by improving analytical methods, enhancing and expanding systems capabilities, and leveraging resources for common NSG goals. The NARP also seeks to improve education in scientific, mathematics, and engineering skills necessary to advance GEOINT capabilities. It is NGA’s intent to solicit fundamental research under this BAA. Fundamental research means basic and applied research in science and engineering, the results of which ordinarily are published and shared broadly within the scientific community, as distinguished from proprietary research and from Industrial development, design, production, and product utilization, the results of which ordinarily are restricted for proprietary or national security reason. (National Security Decision Directive (NSDD) 189, National Policy on the Transfer of Scientific, Technical, and Engineering Information).NGA seeks proposals from eligible U.S. institutions for path-breaking GEOINT research in areas of potential interest to NGA, the DoD, and the Intelligence Community (IC).
