Internal Deadlines: Programs with Limited Numbers of Submissions

Posted on: Thursday, January 19, 2006
Due to a limit on the number of submissions that Wayne State University may make, the Office of the Vice President for Research is requesting that faculty interested in the following programs submit to an internal competition:

Robert Noyce Scholarship Program
Internal Deadline: February 10, 2006


The Robert Noyce Scholarship program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers. The program provides funds to institutions of higher education to support scholarships, stipends, and programs for students who commit to teaching in high need K-12 schools.

For more information on the program, consult the guidlines at the URL: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2006/nsf06528/nsf06528.htm

Wayne State University may submit only one proposal to this program. Interested applicants are asked to submit the following:

· A brief description (no more than 3-4 pages) of the proposed research, including a bottom-line budget;
· A clear declaration of the proposed P.I. for the research and associated WSU personnel; and
· The signature of the appropriate department chair.

Applications should be sent to:

OVPR
Room 6405.3
5057 Woodward

All proposals must be submitted by noon of Friday, February 10, 2006.


Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program (IGERT)
Internal Deadline: February 17, 2006


The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program has been developed to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers who will pursue careers in research and education, with the interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills to become, in their own careers, leaders and creative agents for change. The program is intended to catalyze a cultural change in graduate education, for students, faculty, and institutions, by establishing innovative new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.

For more information on the program, consult the guidlines at the URL: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=12759&org=NSF&from=fund

Wayne State University may submit only four preliminary proposals to this program. Interested applicants are asked to submit the following:

· A brief description (no more than 3-4 pages) of the proposed research, including a bottom-line budget;
· A clear declaration of the proposed P.I. for the research and associated WSU personnel; and
· The signature of the appropriate department chair.

Applications should be sent to:

OVPR
Room 6405.3
5057 Woodward

All proposals must be submitted by noon of Friday, February 17, 2006.


Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE)
Internal Deadline: February 10, 2006


The Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program considers proposals for research and educational projects to improve ethics education in all of the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. For this year, proposals must focus on improving ethics education for graduate students in those fields, and on ethical issues that arise in research or graduate research education in those fields, particularly in interdisciplinary or inter-institutional contexts.

For more information on the program, consult the guidlines at the URL: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=13338&org=NSF&from=fund

Wayne State University may submit only one proposal to this program. Interested applicants are asked to submit the following:

· A brief description (no more than 3-4 pages) of the proposed research, including a bottom-line budget;
· A clear declaration of the proposed P.I. for the research and associated WSU personnel; and
· The signature of the appropriate department chair.

Applications should be sent to:

5057 Woodward

All proposals must be submitted by noon of Friday, February 10, 2006.


Undergraduate Research Collaboratives (URC)
Internal Deadline: February 10, 2006


The Undergraduate Research Collaboratives (URC) Program seeks new models and partnerships with the potential (1) to expand the reach of undergraduate research to include first- and second-year college students; (2) to broaden participation and increase diversity in the student talent pool from which the nation's future technical workforce will be drawn; and (3) to enhance the research capacity, infrastructure, and culture of participating institutions. Collectively, these outcomes will substantially strengthen the nation’s research enterprise. For this program, research should be in the chemical sciences or in interdisciplinary areas supported by the chemical sciences. Projects should allow students to create new knowledge that is potentially publishable by providing exposure to research of contemporary scientific interest that is addressed with modern research tools and methods.
