(For projects beginning May 2015)
http://www.neh.gov/grants/research/summer-stipends

NEH Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. Summer Stipends support full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months. Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development. Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars. Successful applicants receive an outright award of $6,000 for two consecutive months of full-time research and writing.

Notes: All U.S. citizens, whether they reside inside or outside the United States, are eligible to apply. Individuals who have held a major fellowship or research grant or its equivalent within the three academic years prior to the deadline are ineligible. Each college and university in the United States and its jurisdictions may nominate two (2) faculty members.

Because this is a “Limited Submission” (UNO may only nominate two (2) faculty members), it is important that all eligible and interested faculty members submit a pre-proposal (described below) well in advance of NEH deadline.  That way, UNO’s two nominees can be identified and given plenty of time to submit a full proposal to NEH (due in late September of 2014).

The pre-proposal submitted to ORSP should include the following:

·         Limited Submission Proposal Checklist

·         Narrative (maximum 3-pages) to include:

-  Description of the intellectual significance of the proposed project, including its value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Provide an overview of the project, explaining the basic ideas, problems, or questions examined by the study. Explain how the project will complement, challenge, or expand relevant studies in the field.

-  Description of the work plan. Clarify the part or stage of the project that will be supported by the Summer Stipend.

-  Description of your capability to carry out this work, how and to whom you intend to disseminate your results.

·         Full CV

Pre-proposals must be submitted electronically to vpresearch@uno.edu by June 30, 2014.

NOTE:

  • Faculty should carefully review the full program announcement before submitting a pre-proposal to ORSP.
  • ORSP can discuss the program, but cannot review and comment upon pre-proposal documents prior to Limited Submission deadlines.

Questions about the submission process should be sent to kbmarti1@uno.edu or you can contact the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at x6837.

The purpose of this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) is to inform the natural hazards engineering research community of two forthcoming program solicitations anticipated to be issued by the National Science Foundationís (NSF) Directorate for Engineering, Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation, between April and June 2014, for the following: (1) operations of natural hazards engineering research infrastructure for FY 2015-FY 2019 and (2) research on multi-hazard resilient and sustainable civil infrastructure. NSF does not intend to provide additional information beyond this DCL until the program solicitations and any accompanying Frequently Asked Questions are issued, as those will be the official issuances for these competitions and take precedence over the information in this DCL. The anticipated due dates for full proposals submitted to these solicitations will be 90 days following the publication date.

Operations of Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) for FY 2015-2019

NHERI will be an NSF-supported multi-user facility operating earthquake engineering and wind engineering research infrastructure. The NHERI solicitation will replace solicitation NSF 13-537, George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation Operations FY 2015-FY 2019 (NEES2 Ops), to broaden support for natural hazards research infrastructure. NEES2 will now be recompeted as part of the larger NHERI.

Research on Multi-hazard Resilient and Sustainable Civil Infrastructure

Interdisciplinary research is needed to advance the fundamental engineering science base for our nationís next generation civil infrastructure (e.g., buildings and other structures) to achieve lifecycle performance goals for multi-hazard resilience and sustainability. Such research involves the integration of research on single- and multi-hazard resilience of civil infrastructure with research on sustainable civil infrastructure such as green design, construction, maintenance, operations, and deconstruction for recycle/reuse; alternative energy resources and efficiencies for civil infrastructure; and sustainable construction materials. This research may use NHERI experimental facilities and cyberinfrastructure resources when operational. This solicitation will replace solicitation NSF 13-544, NEES Research (NEESR) Planning Grants, and support up to 10 awards.

The entire announcement is available online: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2014/nsf14054/nsf14054.jsp?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25&WT.mc_ev=click

Summer Research Programs 2014

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce the opening of the competition for the 2014 Summer Research Programs. Eligible UNO faculty and research employees are encouraged to apply for one of these awards as a means of honing their grant-making skills, and for the purpose of developing new areas of research or scholarly endeavors. The forms and guidelines are available on the Summer Research Program SharePoint site: https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/srp/default.aspx

There are two available summer awards:

1.             SCoRe (Stimulating Competitive Research)

The goal of the SCoRe award is to enhance the UNO faculty’s ability to successfully compete for extramural sponsored research funding. The SCoRe award is intended as seed money for faculty to develop a new area of research activity. Funding priorities include collection of preliminary data, planning and writing of grant proposals for external funding, maintenance of laboratory activities while preparing for a new area of research, and the purchase of research equipment. As a rule, the SCoRe award will not be used for on-going support of existing projects for which outside funding might reasonably be expected. Funding can be requested for graduate student support, undergraduate assistance, up to one month of PI regular summer salary (plus current fringe benefits rate), research supplies, travel and scientific equipment. Cap: $12,000.

2.             CEO (Creative Endeavor Opportunity)

The goal is to provide support for faculty to launch programs of research, scholarship, exhibition or performance that will ultimately result in increased research and creative activity on campus. Each proposal will be evaluated for its potential impact on the faculty member’s discipline, as well as its contribution to the faculty member’s development as a researcher, teacher and scholar in a specific field of knowledge. This funding could be used for as much as one month regular summer salary (plus current fringe benefits rate), research support, or subventions (page charges, book subventions, theatre/music/art productions) or some combination thereof. Cap: $5,000

Budget Note: These internal awards may be used to support regular summer salary, but may not be used for extra compensation. The current fringe benefit rate (41%) is charged and must be included within the appropriate budget limit. Indirect cost is not charged on internal awards.

Deadline for submission of applications:  March 24, 2014

Dates for funds to be used:  

Day after spring academic appointments end: May 17, 2014  

Day before fall academic appointments begin: August 10, 2014
