Opportunities currently accepting applications.

Innovative Research in Cancer Nanotechnology (IRCN) – Proposed projects should address major barriers in cancer biology and oncology using nanotechnology and should emphasize mechanistic studies toward a fundamental understanding of nanomaterial and nanodevice interactions with biological systems.

$11M Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) – The goals of the HSI program is to enhance the quality of undergraduate STEM education and to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of students pursuing associate’s or baccalaureate degrees in STEM.

$62.5M Cooperative Agreement to establish a Heliophysics Science Center (HSC) – NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) intends to issue funds to re-compete the cooperative agreement for the Heliophysics Science Center. The NASA/GSFC Heliophysics Science Center will carry out basic and applied research in the field of heliophysics in relation to NASA’s Strategic Goals.

$7.5M GFO-19-603 – Electric Vehicle Ready Communities Phase II- Blueprint Implementation – This grant funds projects that will implement projects developed and identified in Phase I, Blueprint Development, of the Electric Vehicle (EV) Ready Communities Challenge.

Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction: Academic Research Initiative (ARI) – The ARI Program has two primary objectives: 1) Engage the academic community to advance fundamental knowledge for Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) sciences applicable to Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction 2) Develop human capital for the CBRN science and engineering profession.

$7.5M DoD Rare Cancers, Concept Award – Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation appropriation for the DoD in rare cancers and concepts

$490K High-Resolution Modeling of the Gulf of Mexico – The high-resolution modeling of the Gulf of Mexico (resolution of 1/100o) is needed using statistical tools for model verification and validation. The goal is to provide information on the potential lateral displacement and sub-surface transport of oil released at depth.
