For most Board of Regents (BoR) programs, the indirect cost is limited to 25% of salary and fringe benefits. BoR specific templates for one year and up to three year proposals have been posted to the Proposal Development page of the Office of Research website. Indirect cost is calculated using BoR’s limit also calculated is UNO’s waived indirect cost. If the BoR program does not restrict the indirect cost rate, continue to use the regular budget templates. Contact your Research Administrator if you have questions.

Out of this world!

The University of New Orleans welcomed approximately 150 students from New Orleans area schools to campus on Thursday, to participate in Space Day 2014. The inaugural event was designed to introduce youngsters to the joys and challenges – and especially the important – of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) said Karen Thomas, associate dean of STEM outreach, recruitment, and retention in the College of Sciences.

Seventh and 8th graders from St. Augustine, Archbishop Rummel, Edward Hynes, Holy Cross, and Ursuline, came to UNO to enjoy hands-on activities based on a theme of another dimension: Space.

"It was a nice day," said Travis Mumphrey, 14, of Rummel. "We did a lot of activities. The space launch was one of my favorites."

For months, students, faculty and staff met weekly with representatives from the Boeing Company, NASA, Jacobs Technology and the National Center for Advanced Manufacturing (NCAM) to design the day focused on raising interest in STEM Studies, Thomas said. The Colleges of Science and Engineering and the University's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs coordinated the University's responsibilities. The results were out of this world.

The Office of Science / Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications to its 2015 Summer Term internship/fellowship programs. These programs, which offer opportunities for direct engagement in scientific research and technology featuring specialized instrumentation; large-scale, multidisciplinary efforts; and/or scientific user facilities, are available for undergraduate students enrolled at community colleges and/or four-year institutions, and for visiting faculty. Selected students or faculty participate at one of 17 DOE Laboratories/Facilities, receive stipends, and may qualify for travel and housing assistance.
Applications for these competitive programs must be completed and submitted online by 5:00 PM ET on January 9, 2015 (including all required application materials and recommendations). The 2015 Summer Term placements are for 10 weeks duration in a May to August timeframe.
 
The three programs accepting applications are:
 
·          The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences, under the guidance of laboratory/facility staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.  More information about SULI and access to the online application is at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/
 
·          The Community College Internship (CCI) program encourages community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE Labs.  Students work on technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities related to ongoing R&D programs. More information about CCI and access to the online application is at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/cci/.
 
·          The Visiting Faculty Program (VFP) seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty members and their students at institutions historically underrepresented in the research community in order to expand the workforce vital to the DOE mission areas.  In this program, selected university/college faculty members collaborate with DOE laboratory research staff on a research project of mutual interest. Faculty member participants may invite up to two students (one of which may be a graduate student) to participate in the research project. Applicants establish their collaborations with laboratory research staff in advance of applying and must submit a co-developed research proposal as part of the application. Students apply separately at the invitation of the faculty member. More information about the VFP and access to the online application is at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/vfp/.
The SULI, CCI and VFP programs are sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science / Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists. The Department of Energy's Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.

Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Issues Call for Research Proposals

About $27 million will support research on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon incident on Gulf ecosystems, public health

RESTON, VA – The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) will award approximately $9 million per year for the next three years to support research on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon incident on the Gulf of Mexico. The new program, RFP-V, is the second GoMRI initiative to fund research by individual investigators or small teams of researchers.

GoMRI is a ten-year research initiative established in 2010 by a $500 million commitment from BP. GoMRI is administered by an independent Research Board, which consists of 20 experts in science, research administration, and public health. The Research Board evaluates research proposals following the merit review guidelines of the National Academies of Science and with procedures similar to those used by the U.S. National Science Foundation.

“The Gulf of Mexico is a remarkably rich and complex environmental system,” said Dr. Rita Colwell, Chairman of the GoMRI Research Board. “Identifying and unraveling these biological and oceanographic complexities requires a focused and long-term commitment. We are pleased that GoMRI is able to facilitate research that is helping to inform our understanding of these interactions.”

The RFP-V program will award grants ranging from $100,000 to $1,000,000 per year. GoMRI supports research in five thematic areas:

  1. Physical distribution, dispersion, and dilution of petroleum (oil and gas), its constituents, and associated contaminants (e.g., dispersants) under the action of physical oceanographic processes, air-sea interactions, and tropical storms.
  2. Chemical evolution and biological degradation of the petroleum/dispersant system and subsequent interaction with coastal, open-ocean, and deep-water ecosystems.
  3. Environmental effects of the petroleum/dispersant system on the sea floor, water column, coastal waters, beach sediments, wetlands, marshes, and organisms; and the science of ecosystem recovery.
  4. Technology developments for improved responses, mitigation, detection, characterization, and remediation associated with oil spills and gas releases.
  5. Impact of oil spills on public health including behavioral, socioeconomic, environmental risk assessment, community capacity, and other population health considerations and issues.

Research applications to the RFP-V program must address questions that will increase our knowledge of at least one of these five themes.

Individuals and teams interested in applying for research support under the RFP-V program must submit a Letter of Intent by 5:00 PM Eastern time on December 15, 2014. Full proposals will be due by March 13, 2015. It is anticipated that awards will be announced around November 13, 2015, and that most grants will run from 2016 through 2018. All RFP-V program requirements and guidelines are available on the GoMRI Web site.
