NSF S-STEM 20-526
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]. Recognizing that financial aid alone cannot increase retention and graduation in STEM, the program provides awards to Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) to fund scholarships and to advance the adaptation, implementation, and study of effective evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities that support recruitment, retention, transfer (if appropriate), student success, academic/career pathways, and graduation in STEM. The S-STEM program encourages collaborations among different types of participating groups, including but not limited to partnerships among different types of institutions; collaborations of STEM faculty and institutional, educational, and social science researchers; and partnerships among institutions of higher education and business, industry, local community organizations, national labs, or other federal or state government organizations, if appropriate. The program seeks to 1) increase the number of low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need obtaining degrees in S-STEM eligible disciplines and entering the workforce or graduate programs in STEM; 2) improve the education of future scientists, engineers, and technicians, with a focus on low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need; and 3) generate knowledge to advance understanding of how interventions or evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities affect the success, retention, transfer, academic/career pathways, and graduation of low-income students in STEM. Scholars must be low-income, academically talented students with unmet financial need who are enrolled in an associate, baccalaureate or graduate degree program, with a major in an S-STEM eligible discipline.

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 S-STEM eligible discipline. See Additional Eligibility Information below for more details (see IV. Eligibility Information).

Ed and Ethel Moore Alzheimer's Disease Research Program
Description: For this FOA, the Department is interested in funding research proposals in the following priority areas of Alzheimer ’s disease:  Clinical/Diagnostic applications that address innovative approaches to diagnosis and treatments, standardizing diagnosis, access to care, and clinical trial recruitment barriers.  Epidemiological applications that address recruitment, biomarkers, assessment, and health disparities in particular communities.  Behavioral/Social applications that address non-pharmacologic interventions, caregiver education and support, dementia-friendly communities, strategies for planning ahead regarding health changes, and end-of-life care.  Basic and Translational applications that address discovery and validation of a broad spectrum of potential therapeutic targets or novel therapeutic strategies, novel insights into the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease and identity of novel biomarkers.  Postdoctoral Research Fellowship applications to provide clinical, patient-oriented training that stimulates a) novel insights into the brain-mediated function and dysfunction related to AD, b) discovery and validation of novel diagnostic strategies related to symptomatology of AD, and c) discovery and validation of novel treatment and care management strategies of AD.

Restrictions: The Department anticipates making awards from the following types of grant categories:  Consortium Grant: Research organizations are eligible to apply as the lead organization for one consortium grant that addresses one of the research areas. Maximum award amount will be up to $500,000 and the maximum duration will be up to five years.  Standard Grant: Research organizations are eligible to apply for seven standard grants that address the research areas listed above. Organizations are not eligible to submit more than three applications within the same research priority. Maximum award amount will be up to $250,000 and the maximum duration will be up to four years.  Pilot Grant: Research organizations are eligible to apply for four pilot grants that address two of the research areas. The research areas must be different if the organization is submitting two or more applications. Maximum award amount will be up to $100,000 and the maximum duration will be up to two years.  Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Grant: Research organizations are eligible to apply for three postdoctoral research fellowship grants that will provide patient-oriented focus. Maximum award amount will be up to $100,000 and the maximum duration will be up to two years.

NSF Partnership for Innovation (PFI) NSF 19-506
Description: The NSF Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) Program within the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships (IIP) offers researchers the opportunity to transform new knowledge into societal benefits through translational research and technology development efforts which catalyze partnerships to accelerate innovations that address significant societal needs. PFI has six broad goals: (1) identifying and supporting Foundation-sponsored research and technologies that have the potential for accelerated commercialization; (2) supporting prior or current Foundation-sponsored researchers, institutions of higher education, and non-profit organizations that partner with an institution of higher education to undertake proof-of-concept work, including the development of technology prototypes that are derived from NSF-funded research and have potential market value; (3) promoting sustainable partnerships between Foundation-funded institutions, industry, and other organizations within academia and the private sector with the purpose of accelerating the transfer of technology; (4) developing multi-disciplinary innovation ecosystems which involve and are responsive to the specific needs of academia and industry; (5) catalyzing professional development activities, mentoring, and best practices in entrepreneurship and technology translation for faculty, students and researchers; and (6) expanding the participation of women and individuals from underrepresented groups in innovation, technology translation, and entrepreneurship. This solicitation offers two broad tracks for proposals in pursuit of the six aforementioned goals.

Restrictions: An organization may submit no more than two (2) proposals to this solicitation.
