Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01)
The goals of NIH-supported career development programs are to help ensure that diverse pools of highly trained scientists are available in adequate numbers and in appropriate research areas to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs.         Feb. 1
NIJ W.E.B. DuBois Fellowship Program (2006)
The W.E.B. DuBois Fellowship Program seeks to advance the field of knowledge regarding the confluence of crime, justice, and culture in various societal contexts. DuBois Fellows will be asked to focus on policy-relevant questions in a manner that truly reflects their saliency as an integral part of the American past, present, and, increasingly, its future. The Fellowship places particular emphasis on crime, violence, and the administration of justice in diverse cultural contexts.        Feb. 1
Crime, Justice, and Culture in Societal Contexts
The Department of Justice/National Institute of Justice is accepting applications to its W.E.B. DuBois Fellowship Program. The program enables researchers to investigate the confluence of crime, justice, and culture in various societal contexts, focusing on policy-relevant questions as an integral part of the American past, present, and future. The fellowship places particular emphasis on crime, violence, and the administration of justice in diverse cultural contexts.        Feb. 1
NIH Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity
Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD) program seeks to facilitate and promote, at research institutions with significant number of mentors with NIH or other extramural research support, the entry into biomedical or behavioral research fields of undergraduate and graduate students from groups underrepresented in these fields.        Feb. 1
Higher Education Challenge Grants Program
Enable colleges and universities to provide the quality of education necessary to produce baccalaureate or higher degree level graduates capable of strengthening the Nation's food and agricultural scientific and professional workforce.        Feb. 2
Emerging Models and Technologies for Computation
Advances the fundamental capabilities of computer and information sciences and engineering by capitalizing on advances and insights from areas such as biological systems, quantum phenomena, nanoscale science and engineering, and other novel computing concepts. To bring fundamental changes to software, hardware and architectural design aspects of future computing models, collaborations among computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, biologists and other disciplinary scientists are imperative.        Feb. 7
Earth Sciences: Instrumentation and Facilities (EAR/IF)
ONLY be submitted for: Support of National or Regional Multi-User Facilities; Support Research Technicians; and Development of Cyberinfrastructure for Earth Sciences (Geoinformatics).         Feb. 8
NMFS - Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Population Dynamics
The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) - Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Population Dynamics (Population Dynamics Graduate Fellowship Program) is accepting applications from institutions of higher education on behalf of PhD students who are interested in careers related to the population dynamics of living marine resources and the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing their status.        Feb. 10
NMFS-SG Fellowship in Marine Resource Economics
Graduate Fellowship Program awards at least two new PhD fellowships each year to students who are interested in careers related to the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources.        Feb. 10, 2006
Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program
Provides support for independent graduate-level studies in oceanography, marine biology, or maritime archaeology, particularly by women and members of minority groups.  A maximum of $64,000 may be provided to masters students (up to 2 years of support) and up to $128,000 may be provided to doctoral students (up to 4 years of support).          Feb. 13, 2006
Public Service Award
The Samuel Huntington Public Service Award program is inviting applications from a graduating college senior to pursue public service anywhere in the world. Provides for an annual stipend of $10,000.  Allows recipients to engage in a meaningful public service activity for one year before proceeding on to graduate school or a career. Proposals may be developed for public service in this country or abroad. The proposal may encompass any activity that furthers the public good.        Feb. 15
Instrumentation for Materials Research
The IMR Program supports the acquisition and/or development of research instruments that will provide new capability and/or advance current capability to: (1) discover fundamental phenomena in materials; (2) synthesize, process, and/or characterize the composition, structure, properties, and performance of materials; and (3) improve the quality, expand the scope, and foster and enable the integration of research and education in research-intensive environments.        Feb. 16
Engineering Sciences for Modeling and Simulation-Based Life-Cycle Engineering and Manufacturing
This is a continuation of a collaborative research program between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) that was started in 1997. The objective of this collaborative program is to fund research projects focused on science-based experimental, computational and theoretical capabilities that enhance our understanding and confidence of the behavior of engineered systems at unprecedented multiple spatial and temporal scales.        March 1
Fellowships (Knauss 2007) Marine Or Aquatic-Related Field
Any student, regardless of citizenship, who, on April 6, 2006, is in a graduate or professional program in a marine or aquatic-related field at a United States accredited institution of higher education in the United States may apply.        March 1
James Madison Graduate Fellowships
The maximum amount of each award is $24,000, prorated over the individual period of study, thus making the James Madison Fellowship the leading award for secondary level teachers undertaking study of the Constitution. Fellowship payments cover the actual costs of tuition, required fees, books, and room and board but cannot exceed $12,000 per academic year.         March 1, 2006
Basic Research for Chemical Imaging
Of particular interest are applications that combine molecular-scale spatial resolution and ultrafast temporal resolution to explore energy flow, molecular dynamics, breakage or formation of chemical bonds, or conformational changes in nanoscale systems.        March 15
DARPA Integrated Learning
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO) is soliciting proposals for a new program called Integrated Learning.  This program will develop computer software, called an Integrated Learner, that learns plans or processes from human users by being shown one example.        July 2006
