The Louisiana Board of Regents has a program to fund projects for a faculty member working with an industrial partner. The project can either have a research or commercialization focus. The application deadline is May 3rd. The Office of Research is conducting a workshop on Thursday, March 21st at 10 am (in EN 321) to briefly describe the program and application process. Faculty members who hold an active award or have recently had an award in this program will be in attendance to answer any questions and/or provide pointers on the program. The workshop is open to faculty, staff and students. Attached is the Request for Proposals for more details and the application forms.

The BOR EPSCoR Committee met this morning. Of potential interest were two items. There will be a slight change to the scoring of the SURE proposals. Please check the RFP carefully when the call comes out in the fall. Also, there will be an extra effort to get more OPT-IN proposals funded in the future. OPT-IN funds a joint business-university project with a match from the business. Success rate on these is very high. I will be trying to advertise the program to local businesses and then find a partner on campus.

We recently received notice that three of the five SURE applications submitted by UNO faculty were awarded. The SURE award supports undergraduate research for minority students. The BOR received 137 applications and awarded only 43, which is a 31% success rate. UNO’s success rate was 60%. We have a new initiative that will be announced at the end of the summer to increase the number of SURE applicants from UNO, stay tuned...

The EPSCoR Committee met yesterday and here's a few items of interest: the Acting Director of NSF EPSCoR is Denise Barnes (who happens to be from New Orleans), regarding the NASA EPSCoR program even though the proposals were due yesterday the RFP from NASA is not out yet, the second round of the SURE program has a due date of April 17th and the second round of the OPT-IN program will be due May 15. Finally, faculty are encouraged to participate in the Third Industry/Academia Workshop (on Biosciences) here in New Orleans at the end of April. A campus email blast will go out next week.

The BoR has issued the Request for Applications (RFA) for the EPSCoR Supervised Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE) program for 2012. This program provides opportunities for female and underrepresented minority undergraduate students to participate in research with faculty mentors. Students accepted into the program will receive a stipend of $4,000, while the faculty mentor will receive $500 per student for costs associated with the research experience. Applications are due April 17, 2012. Please note that minor changes have been made to this RFA; the application submission process is somewhat different from that used for the last competition, so the application form that accompanied the previous SURE RFA cannot be used. The RFA is also available on the Board's Sponsored Programs website at http://laregents.org.

I attended the BoR Sponsored Programs last week. Because of projections from the revenue estimating committee they are anticipating cuts of approximately 10% in their programs. As such, most of their funding programs will be cut by 10%. An exception is the Enhancement program which will not be cut. Also, they will encourage multidisciplinary enhancement proposals by allocating as much as 20% of the enhancement funds to multidisciplinary proposals.

Notice concerning Supervised Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE) Competition A request for proposals (RFP) for the SURE program was issued on April 21, 2011. This program seeks to increase the participation of women and underrepresented minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines. The RFP specified that there would be two rounds of competition, the first with proposals due on May 9, 2011 and the second with proposals due December 1, 2011. The purpose of this notice is to announce that the second competition will be deferred until spring, 2012. A new, revised RFP will be issued for this competition and will be posted on the Board of Regents Sponsored Programs website at http://laregents.org/.
