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.

This message was sent to all faculty and staff.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Deadline for submission of Statements of Interest is 28 January 2011.  This email has been distributed to all faculty/staff.

This is a solicitation from the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program for Statements of Interest proposing two-year coastal research projects.  The Statement of Interest serves as a project pre-proposal that identifies a topic relevant to coastal and marine needs in Louisiana and the nation. It describes both the scope of the need, problem, or opportunity and how the results achieved would contribute to development, conservation, or utilization of coastal and marine resources. Statements allow for review of concepts, rationale, general approach, and expected outcomes and impacts before faculty must commit to providing a narrative of detailed methodology, literature review, and other requirements of a full proposal.


1. Priority Focus Areas are: 1) Healthy Coastal Ecosystems, 2) Sustainable Coastal Development, 3) Safe and Sustainable Seafood Supply, and 4) Hazard Resilience in Coastal Communities. We strongly suggest that you access a complete explanation of these priorities and their attendant Goals and Strategies at Louisiana Sea Grant Strategic Plan 2009-2013.


2. Proposals must be strong in scientific and professional merit, rationale and user relationships. Other criteria apply.


3. 50% match is required for all awards.


4. Faculty may participate in a maximum of two Statements of Interest. Listing as Principal Investigator, Co-Principal Investigator, or Associate Investigator counts as participation.


Size of Grant Awards


We will entertain Statements of Interest with maximum budgets of $90,000/year for either one or two year projects.  Occasionally projects that are evaluated highly, but fall just below the cutoff for full funding, can be supported at a reduced scope and cost with Program Development funds.


A fully completed and signed Statement of Interest, in either hard copy or PDF format, must be submitted to Ms. Katie Lea (Room 238 Sea Grant Building, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 or klea@lsu.edu) by 4:00 PM on Friday, 28 January 2011 without exception.


Please go to Funding and Proposal Information 2012-2014 for complete information on Statement of Interest content specifications, appropriate forms, and submission procedures.  Contact me if you either encounter problems or have questions regarding the Statement of Interest.

Best regards,

Dave Nieland

Attached (in both MSWord and PDF) is the FY2011 NASA EPSCoR Request for Proposals (RFP), which requests proposals from Louisiana researchers for possible submission to NASA by the Board of Regents. This RFP is being issued in response to the release of the FY2011 NASA EPSCoR Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN), which is also attached to this email.

The Board's RFP will also be made available on the Board's Sponsored Programs website at http://laregents.org.  Please distribute widely on your campus.

This email has been distributed to all faculty/staff.
