LaSPACE is now accepting proposals for several of their award programs. • The MRS, GSRA, and Higher Education/Senior Design programs are open through the end of the year without a specific due date. Proposals will be reviewed when received and, if meritorious, will be awarded until funds are exhausted. • Proposals for the REA award will be accepted until Friday, November 16, 2012. • Proposals for the LURA award program will be accepted until Wednesday, November 28, 2012. • Guidelines for all proposals are available online at http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php. • The guidelines have been UPDATED. Please refer to / use the newest version(s). Of particular note, the LURA submission guidelines and final technical report have an additional component. We need a work plan for and final evaluation for every student we fund. Thus, LURA proposals which include applications from 2 students, must include unique work plans for each student. And final reports must reflect on each student’s work. If you have any questions about the requirements or format, please do not hesitate to contact Colleen at the address below. This email has been distributed to all faculty/staff. Colleen H.

Just left an very interesting presentation and a one-on-one with Dr. David Campbell, Program Director for one of the programs in the NSF Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR). He updated us on numerous NSF Programs for K-12, undergraduate, graduate, faculty and adult learners. As he was talking I could see strong connections to PIES, CERF, Children's Center, COEHD, and upward bound plus our robotics initiative. I will be making arrangement for him to come to UNO in the early fall.

I had a productive meeting with Dr. Rebecca Boggs, the Senior Program Officer for the NEH Division of Educational Programs. We discussed our recent proposals and how to improve our chances. One suggestion was to become an NEH reviewer. ORSP will be explaining the process and how we can help. We will also try to get one or more NEH program officers to come to campus. If you have questions or comments please send them to vpresearch.

The NEA now has research grants about improving/demonstrating the impacts of the arts. The proposals are related to analysis and presentation of existing data sets related to the arts. I will have an email to the campus when I return. Deadline is Nov. 6, so we have time to prepare some good proposals. Contact vpresearch if you are interested.

NIH presented a lot of data regarding the demographics of who is receiving NIH awards and who is being supported. The data show an aging "workforce". The age at which a PI gets the first NIH award is in the middle to late 30's and the average age of NIH funded PIs is quite old. Finally, NIH is restructuring a few including NCATS which unifies several therapeutic agencies and the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP).

More information from the AASCU Meeting. The NIH success rate is now the lowest every at 17%. NIH has been looking at ways to increase success, including limiting total RPG support to $1M or so, another is to limit the total amount of PI support on NIH funding. A guide notice will be out soon.

More information from Jean Feldman from NSF from the AASCU Meeting (see Post 1). A Proposal Review Workshop was held previously, mainly to deal with the increased number of proposals received. Some suggestions include: increased virtual panels, streamlined ad hoc reviews, more preproposals, asynchronous panels, automated checking of compliance. Jean also stressed the importance of the Facilities, Equipment and Resource section of the NSF Proposal. It's a way to show institutional support without indicating voluntary cost-sharing (which is not allowed).

I will be posting materials I have gleaned from the AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities, pronounced askew)meeting. This morning we heard from Jean Feldman from NSF. The 2013 Budget Request is $7.373B. Target research areas include clean energy, critical infrastructure, new materials, robotics, cyber, next generation scientific technologies and graduate research fellows. Long discussion on the merit review process. New guidelines will be out January, 2013. More details in next post.
