My last message was recently distributed by this office. Please note that the NASA EPSCoR proposal submission process is coordinated by the Board of Regents. They should soon be sending their own RFP. We will also distribute that announcement when it is made.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have released the FY 2011 Research Announcement for the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to the strategic research and technology development priorities of one or more of NASA’s four Mission Directorates—Aeronautics Research, Exploration Systems, Science, and Space Operations—, the Office of the Chief Technologist (OCT), and NASA’s ten Centers and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the proposing jurisdiction.

Public Law 102-58, passed in 1992, authorized NASA to initiate NASA EPSCoR to strengthen the research capability of jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace research activities. The National Science Foundation (NSF) determines overall jurisdiction eligibility for NASA EPSCoR.   The following NASA EPSCoR jurisdictions may respond to this NASA EPSCoR solicitation: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.  Jurisdictions responding to this CAN may submit up to two proposals.

This solicitation may be accessed through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) at http://nspires.nasaprs.com.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has made a significant change to its Grant Proposal Guide.  Effective for NSF proposals submitted or due on or after January 18th, 2011 inclusion of voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited in NSF proposals unless required in the NSF solicitation.   In order to assess the scope of the project, all organizational resources necessary for the project (both physical and personnel) must be described in the Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources section of the proposal.  The description should be narrative in nature and must not include any quantifiable financial information.

This email has been distributed to all faculty/staff.

For the first time in many years the Office of Research is producing a Research Magazine. Because the UNO Magazine has been featuring research we were able to work with Jessica Llanes in UNO Publications and Communications to include content from our newsletter and make a separate Research Magazine for a low cost, but still professional looking. We will be distributing the Research Magazine to Vice Chancellors/Vice Presidents for Research at universities around the country. Attached below is the printer's copy. If you would like a copy sent to your office, please send an email to vcresearch@uno.edu to request a copy.

Several of us listened to the EPA webinar from FAMU yesterday on the BP GRI funding ($500M over 10 years). I also had a phone conference following the webinar with the VC/VPs for Research from several of the other Louisiana research universities. The bottom line from the webinar is that the RFP is not out yet, individual proposals will be accepted BUT consortial proposals will have a much better chance, proposals probably will be due in February, 2011 and the money available June 1, 2011. The VC/VPs for Research have already been working on a consortial proposal. We are awaiting the RFP to help guide further development of the proposal.

Please remember that UNO is closed on December 23, 2010 and will not reopen until January 3, 2011. Proposals due during that time period should be submitted early.

Proposals for external funding require an electronic UNO Routing form be submitted by the PI and then be signed by the appropriate signatories. Since the Holiday break is fast approaching I strongly urge you to submit routing forms early. Some people needed to sign or process the paperwork may leave before the holiday break to travel and may not have immediate access to the internet. This may slow down the processing of routing forms.

The EPSCoR Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF) Program through the Louisiana Board of Regents provides funds to tenure-track (not tenured) faculty in science or engineering for travel to funding agencies to visit with program managers or to give major, invited presentations.  Faculty in the following disciplines can apply:

  • Biological sciences (all)
  • Mathematical & computer sciences
  •  Earth & environmental sciences (Geology, Oceanography, Environmental)
  • Engineering (all)
  •  Physical sciences (Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics)
  • Social & behavioral sciences

Speaking with a program officer can provide insight on the proposal structure, the peer review process, and the focus of the agency; this can make your proposal more competitive.  An opportunity to make a presentation can make you more known in your field and open other doors for your career.  TGEF funding can pay for most or all of the expenses related to these trips which is important with the cuts in general fund budgets.

The awards are limited to $1,200 for travel expenses and the expenses must follow state travel guidelines.  Up to  $1,200 can also be obtained for the travel expense of a mentor that accompanies the faculty on the trip.

For more information on the program and the application process, please refer to the attached Request for Application.  The overall deadline for applications is June 30, 2015.  However, your application must be submitted at least 30 days prior to your proposed trip.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 280-6836 or send an email to stateORSP@uno.edu.

This was sent to all faculty and staff.
