In a partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program is recruiting three participants for a new Mappers-in-Training Program (MiTP) for a Fall 2018 field study in early October; the exact dates are expected to be confirmed by August 1. This program is open to enrolled graduate students.

The internship will include 1-2 days of land-based meetings at the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program offices in Los Angeles, and at the Southern California offices of NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to orient students to the missions and data needs of these federal agencies. Interns will subsequently spend 11 days aboard the NOAA Ship Rainier mapping the seafloor around the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. The MiTP will provide the opportunity to gain an understanding of how seafloor maps are used by federal agencies to support the U.S.’s blue economy, and make informed decisions about our coastal and ocean resources. It will also provide the opportunity to gain experience making seafloor maps using advanced multibeam sonar (sound navigation and ranging) systems, while also contributing in a significant way to NOAA’s ocean and coastal mapping mission. Towards the end of their time at sea, interns will be asked to give short presentations describing what they learned during their experience. These presentations will also provide an opportunity to discuss mapping as a career with the NOAA Ship Rainier’s officers, technicians and crew.

The Grants Resource Center (GRC), a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), has enhanced the research and sponsored programs capabilities of higher education institutions since 1967. A subscription to GRC provides UNO with access to a comprehensive suite of tools, services, and expertise to improve your office’s efficiency and increase your institution’s success in securing competitive grants from federal and private sponsors.

Funding Opportunity Information

GRC’s proprietary search engine, GrantSearch, includes 2,000 private and federal funding opportunities screened for recurrence and for higher education eligibility. Search results provide a high proportion of viable opportunities because the database excludes solicitations that are limited to a specific region, that make fewer than three awards annually, and for which higher education institutions are not eligible to apply or partner.

Resource Library

The members-only GRC website serves as a clearinghouse for higher education grant-seeking tools and resources. It provides access to the GrantSearch database, GRC publications and funding guides, and the GRC_News Twitter feed. The website also houses sample research administration policies, a library of funded proposals, and a weekly list of federal meetings.

We are pleased to announce that a revised version of the NSF Grants.gov Application Guide has been issued. The NSF Grants.gov Application Guide has been updated to align with changes to NSF’s Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1). Information about FastLane system registration has been removed and replaced with guidance for registering in Research.gov. Editorial changes have also been made to either clarify or enhance the intended meaning of a sentence or section or to ensure consistency with data contained in NSF systems or other NSF policy documents. The new NSF Grants.gov Application Guide will be effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact the Policy Office on (703) 292-8243 or by e-mail to policy@nsf.gov. For technical questions relating to Grants.gov, please contact Grants.gov directly at 1-800-518-4726 or support@grants.gov.

The Louisiana Aerospace Catalyst Experiences for Students (LaACES) Program runs for a full academic year. During the first semester a series of lectures and hands-on activities help build student skills in basic electronics, sensor interfacing, real-time programming, mechanical development, and project management. The second semester is then devoted to applying these skills to the design, development, fabrication, and flight of a small (~500 gram) balloon payload. Payloads from all student teams are then flown at the end of the academic year under the management of LaSPACE. Independent balloon flights by institutions are not supported under LaACES. Proposed efforts that do not conform to this general model are likely to review poorly. • Proposals must be signed off on by the Faculty PI and the Designated Institutional Representative for Sponsored Programs at your institution. • Award funds can be requested up to $10,000; no strict cost-match is required, but some institutional investment will impact our evaluation. • Multiple proposals per institution may be submitted, but no more than one proposal per campus will be funded. • LaACES materials (lectures, electronics kits, etc) are provided to LaSPACE affiliates implementing this program at no additional cost and independent of any funding proposed here. • Only flights conducted under the supervision and direction of LaSPACE Management will be considered for funding. • Please include student demographic forms, if your student reams have already been identified. • All invoices and a final technical report must be submitted to the LaSPACE office within 30 days of the project end date. Photographs and copies of all papers, presentations, and posters generated should be shared with LaSPACE as they occur and collected/referenced in the final report. Guidelines: http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php Proposal Due Date: Friday, July 7, 2017
