NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) NSF 17-527
Description: A well-educated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a significant contributor to maintaining the competitiveness of the U.S. in the global economy. The National Science Foundation (NSF) Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) program addresses the need for a high quality STEM workforce in STEM disciplines supported by the program and for the increased success of low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need who are pursuing associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) [6], [16].

Restrictions: An Institution may submit one proposal (either as a single institution or as subawardee or a member of a Collaborative Research project) from each constituent school or college that awards degrees in an eligible field. See Additional Eligibility Information below for more details.

Beckman Foundation
Description: The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation will provide several one-time awards to offset the purchase cost of cryo-electron microscopes and detectors. The funding will be used exclusively as a contribution towards the cryo-EM equipment purchase cost, up to $2.5M per award. The Foundation will consider proposals for a broad range of cryo-EM microscopes and detectors, from mid-level screening instruments to high-end microscopes outfitted with direct electron detectors. Applicants shall identify the exact configuration of microscope and detectors they would purchase in the proposal, and justify why that level of capability is appropriate for the research programs centered at the Institute. The Foundation will not consider grants that only add workflow equipment to existing cryo-EM facilities. The Foundation will consider applications from individual institutions or from consortia of institutions whose combined resources meet the requirements below. For any consortium application, there must be a “Lead Institution”, defined as the institute that will have the new cryo-EM facility on their property; the Lead Institution must meet the eligibility requirements below.

Restrictions: One application per invited institution
