In a partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program is recruiting three participants for a new Mappers-in-Training Program (MiTP) for a Fall 2018 field study in early October; the exact dates are expected to be confirmed by August 1. This program is open to enrolled graduate students.

The internship will include 1-2 days of land-based meetings at the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program offices in Los Angeles, and at the Southern California offices of NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to orient students to the missions and data needs of these federal agencies. Interns will subsequently spend 11 days aboard the NOAA Ship Rainier mapping the seafloor around the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. The MiTP will provide the opportunity to gain an understanding of how seafloor maps are used by federal agencies to support the U.S.’s blue economy, and make informed decisions about our coastal and ocean resources. It will also provide the opportunity to gain experience making seafloor maps using advanced multibeam sonar (sound navigation and ranging) systems, while also contributing in a significant way to NOAA’s ocean and coastal mapping mission. Towards the end of their time at sea, interns will be asked to give short presentations describing what they learned during their experience. These presentations will also provide an opportunity to discuss mapping as a career with the NOAA Ship Rainier’s officers, technicians and crew.

Save the Date! Join NSF on November 8-9, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana for the 50th National Science Foundation Grants Conference! The Fall 2018 NSF Grants Conference will be held at the Intercontinental New Orleans.

These events are primarily designed to provide new faculty, researchers and administrators with key insights into a wide range of current issues at NSF, including proposal preparation and merit review basics, award management topics and other important information. NSF program officers representing each NSF directorate will be on hand to provide up-to-date information about specific funding opportunities and to answer attendee questions.

Registration will open on Thursday, September 6th at 12:00 PM EST. The conference sells out quickly so register as soon as you can.

The Grants Resource Center (GRC), a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), has enhanced the research and sponsored programs capabilities of higher education institutions since 1967. A subscription to GRC provides UNO with access to a comprehensive suite of tools, services, and expertise to improve your office’s efficiency and increase your institution’s success in securing competitive grants from federal and private sponsors.

Funding Opportunity Information

GRC’s proprietary search engine, GrantSearch, includes 2,000 private and federal funding opportunities screened for recurrence and for higher education eligibility. Search results provide a high proportion of viable opportunities because the database excludes solicitations that are limited to a specific region, that make fewer than three awards annually, and for which higher education institutions are not eligible to apply or partner.

Resource Library

The members-only GRC website serves as a clearinghouse for higher education grant-seeking tools and resources. It provides access to the GrantSearch database, GRC publications and funding guides, and the GRC_News Twitter feed. The website also houses sample research administration policies, a library of funded proposals, and a weekly list of federal meetings.

Funding Search Form

Complete this form to have a GRC Program Advisor assist you in finding applicable funding opportunities.

Login information

Access to GRC is controlled by password and is only available for UNO employees and students. The UNO username and password are posted on SharePoint: https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/default.aspx

For years researchers have used the Matchmaker feature in NIH RePORTER to identify NIH-funded projects similar to their supplied abstracts, research bios, or other scientific text. Matchmaker was recently enhanced to make it just as easy to identify NIH program officials whose portfolios include projects in your research area.

After entering your scientific text (up to 15,000 characters), Matchmaker will analyze the key terms and concepts to identify up to 500 similar projects. Those projects will continue to show on the Projects tab with handy charts to visualize the results and quickly filter identified projects by Institute/Center, Activity Code, and Study Section. A new Program Official tab identifies the program officials associated with the matched projects and includes its own filters for Institute/Center and Activity Code. From the list of program officials you are one click away from their contact information and matched projects in their portfolios. Never before has it been so easy to answer the question “Who at NIH can I talk to about my research?”
