The Louisiana Aerospace Catalyst Experiences for Students (LaACES) Program runs for a full academic year. During the first semester a series of lectures and hands-on activities help build student skills in basic electronics, sensor interfacing, real-time programming, mechanical development, and project management. The second semester is then devoted to applying these skills to the design, development, fabrication, and flight of a small (~500 gram) balloon payload. Payloads from all student teams are then flown at the end of the academic year under the management of LaSPACE. Independent balloon flights by institutions are not supported under LaACES. Proposed efforts that do not conform to this general model are likely to review poorly. • Proposals must be signed off on by the Faculty PI and the Designated Institutional Representative for Sponsored Programs at your institution. • Award funds can be requested up to $10,000; no strict cost-match is required, but some institutional investment will impact our evaluation. • Multiple proposals per institution may be submitted, but no more than one proposal per campus will be funded. • LaACES materials (lectures, electronics kits, etc) are provided to LaSPACE affiliates implementing this program at no additional cost and independent of any funding proposed here. • Only flights conducted under the supervision and direction of LaSPACE Management will be considered for funding. • Please include student demographic forms, if your student reams have already been identified. • All invoices and a final technical report must be submitted to the LaSPACE office within 30 days of the project end date. Photographs and copies of all papers, presentations, and posters generated should be shared with LaSPACE as they occur and collected/referenced in the final report. Guidelines: http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php Proposal Due Date: Friday, July 7, 2017

The Senior Design Project Support Program is meant to offer supplemental funding in support of high-level student-led research and design projects. Projects must show clear relevance to NASA’s mission and ongoing research at one or more of the NASA centers/under the umbrella of one or more of the four mission directorates. This funding source is meant to supplement the cost of materials and supplies and/or travel for competitions related to the student project. • Proposals must be signed off on by the Faculty PI and the Designated Institutional Representative for Sponsored Programs at your institution. • Award funds can be requested up to $4000; no strict cost-match is required, but some institutional investment will impact the evaluation. • Please include student demographic forms, if your student participants have already been identified. If the team members are not all selected at the time of proposing, please be sure to send the forms in as soon as the students have all been identified. • All invoices and a final technical report must be submitted to the LaSPACE office within 30 days of the project end date. Photographs and copies of all papers, presentations, and posters generated should be shared with LaSPACE as they occur and collected/referenced in the final report. Guidelines: http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php Proposal Due Date: Friday, July 7, 2017

All new proposal submissions should include summer tuition as a budget line item if Graduate Assistants are working in the summer.

All student employees – including all Graduate Assistant types (Teaching Assistant, Teaching Associate-IOR, Professional Assistant, Research Assistant) - should be enrolled in 3 hours if employed during the Summer term.

Requests for exception to this requirement should be submitted through the Dean of the student’s academic College for review by the Provost’s office. For example, if there are no courses available for the student to count towards their degree. There are other reasons for exceptions, and your dean should be consulted. Approved exception requests should be attached to the Personnel Action Form (101) for the Graduate Assistant.

On April 24, 2017, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will initiate a new pilot requiring the use of a template for identifying Collaborators and Other Affiliations (COA) information for Principal Investigators (PIs), co-PIs, and other senior project personnel identified on proposals submitted in FastLane. The NSF Proposal and Award Policies & Procedures Guide (https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf17001) (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1) requires PIs, co-PIs, and other senior project personnel identified on NSF proposals to individually upload COA information as a Single Copy Document (see PAPPG Chapter II.C.1e).

NSF uses this information during the merit review process to help manage reviewer selection. To expedite identification of potential reviewers, having a standard, searchable format for this information is essential. The new pilot will standardize COA information across the Foundation and will ensure that the information is submitted in a searchable format. Results from the pilot will be assessed and will determine how to proceed with this section of the proposal in the future.

This is a gentle reminder that the Internal Grant Program proposals are due this Friday.

Eligible UNO faculty and research employees are encouraged to apply for one of these awards as a means of honing their grant-making skills, and for the purpose of developing new areas of research or scholarly endeavors.

Budget Note: These internal awards may be used to support up to one month regular salary, but may not be used for extra compensation. The current fringe benefit rate is charged and must be included within the appropriate budget limit (FY 17 fringe is 47% and FY 18 is 49%). Indirect cost is not charged on internal awards. The forms and guidelines are available on the ORSP IGP SharePoint site: https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/igp/default.aspx
