Description

ITEST is an applied research and development (R&D) program providing direct student learning opportunities in pre-kindergarten through high school (PreK-12). The learning opportunities are based on innovative use of technology to strengthen knowledge and interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and information and communication technology (ICT) careers. To achieve this purpose, ITEST supports projects that engage students in technology-rich experiences that: (1) increase awareness and interest of STEM and ICT occupations; (2) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to those occupations; and (3) develop STEM-specific disciplinary content knowledge and practices that promote critical thinking, reasoning, and communication skills needed for entering the STEM and ICT workforce of the future. ITEST seeks proposals that pursue innovative instructional approaches and practices in formal and informal learning environments, in close collaboration with strategic partnerships. ITEST proposals should broaden participation of all students, particularly those in underrepresented and underserved groups in STEM fields and related education and workforce domains. ITEST supports three types of projects: (1) Exploring Theory and Design Principles (ETD); (2) Developing and Testing Innovations (DTI); and (3) Scaling, Expanding, and Iterating Innovations (SEI). ITEST also supports Synthesis and Conference proposals. All ITEST proposals must address how they are (A) designing innovations that meet ITEST program goals which include innovative use of technologies, innovative learning experiences, STEM workforce development, strategies for broadening participation, and strategic partnerships; and (B) measuring outcomes through high-quality research which includes high-quality research design, project evaluation, and dissemination of findings.

International Research Experiences for Students

Competition Opens

05/31/2019

Competition Closes

09/24/2019

Description

The International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program supports international research and research-related activities for U.S. science and engineering students. The IRES program contributes to development of a diverse, globally-engaged workforce with world-class skills. IRES focuses on active research participation by undergraduate or graduate students in high quality international research, education and professional development experiences in NSF-funded research areas. The overarching, long-term goal of the IRES program is to enhance U.S. leadership in research and education and to strengthen economic competitiveness through training the next generation of research leaders. This solicitation features three mechanisms; proposers are required to select one of the following tracks to submit their proposal. Track I focuses on the development of world-class research skills in international cohort experiences. Track II is dedicated to targeted, intensive learning and training opportunities that leverage international knowledge at the frontiers of research. Track III supports U.S. institutional collaborations to develop, implement and evaluate innovative models for high-impact, large-scale international research and professional development experiences for U.S. graduate students. Student participants supported by IRES funds must be citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the United States. Students do not apply directly to NSF to participate in IRES activities. Students apply to NSF-funded investigators who receive IRES awards. To identify appropriate IRES projects, students should consult the directory of active IRES awards. All PIs, co-PIs and Senior Personnel on IRES proposals must be from U.S. based institutions. IRES - Track I: IRES Sites (IS) projects engage a group of undergraduate and/or graduate students in active high-quality collaborative research at an international site with mentorship from researchers at a host lab. IRES Sites must be organized around a coherent intellectual theme that may involve a single discipline or multiple disciplines funded by NSF. IRES - Track II: Advanced Studies Institutes (ASI) are intensive short courses with related activities that engage advanced graduate students in active learning and research at the frontiers of knowledge. ASIs typically range in length from ten to twenty-one days and must be held outside the United States. ASIs must have a compelling rationale for their international location and should involve distinguished active researchers in the target field from the U.S. and abroad. ASIs should enable students to develop skills and broaden professional networks, leveraging international participation and complementary resources (expertise, facilities, data, field site, etc.) for mutual benefit. IRES - Track III: New Concepts in International Graduate Experience (IGE) The IGE IRES track invites teams of PIs to propose, implement, evaluate and disseminate innovative large-scale programs (models) for providing high-quality international research and research-related professional development experiences to U.S. graduate students. The PIs should explain how their innovative program (model) could potentially be adaptable beyond the immediate disciplinary fields involved in theirproposal. The proposals should be designed from the viewpoint of graduate-level STEM research/training, and globally engaged STEM workforce development. The proposals should be grounded in relevant literature on graduate STEM research/training, education, and graduate level international experiences. U.S. graduate students recruited from a broad, diverse applicant pool should travel to non-U.S. locations for periods of several weeks to a semester for immersive experiences under the mentorship of appropriate collaborators. The proposed international graduate research experience model may focus on research and research-related activities in any NSF-funded area(s). Proposals that utilize, leverage and expand existing global networks and infrastructure are strongly encouraged.

Description

This Forecast is modified to correct the funding opportunity number. HHS-2019-ACF-OCSE-FC-1541 has been changed to HHS-2019-ACF-OCSE-FD-1541. This Forecast is modified to correct the Eligibility section. Native American tribal organizations (other than Federally recognized tribal governments) has been changed to Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized). The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) forecast invites eligible applicants to submit competitive grant applications to test how the child support program can improve intergovernmental case processing and collections. The specific project objectives of this goal are to: 1) Increase payments on intergovernmental cases; AND 2) Improve case processing procedures to increase efficiency and customer service. Project designs may vary by grantee, but will fall within a broad demonstration framework which incorporates procedural justice principles, behavioral economics concepts, and enhanced communication strategies to accomplish the two project objectives above. Grants may also be used to acquire and/or enhance technical capabilities that could improve intergovernmental case processing. Some examples include automation, staffing, data analysis, system analysis, and completing technical steps required to gain access to the Federal Parent Locator Service (e.g., the cost of the security assessment). Grantees will evaluate projects by comparing administrative data using pre/post analysis regarding collections and case processing timeframes. The evaluation work can be done by state or tribal IV-D staff or a third-party evaluator. Additionally, grantees must support information sharing and partnerships with other state and tribal Title IV-D agencies to improve their intergovernmental case processing activities. Notice About Section 1115 Funding: The statute authorizes recipients of Section 1115 grant funding to draw down Federal Financial Participation (FFP) on the award amount according to the cost sharing rate for the recipient organization. Any FFP requested in association with this grant funding must become part of the project budget. The award amounts (ceiling and floor) listed in this forecast reflect only 1115 funding and the expected number of awards and estimated average award amount assumes a mix of state and tribal awardees. OCSE expects that the total award ceiling for all projects, accounting for Section 1115 funding and applicable FFP, will be $500,000, and that most awards will be funded at the award ceiling amount for the applicant’s organization type. The following information is to help potential applicants determine their award ceiling and floor based on the FFP cost sharing rate for recipient organization type. For States with 66 percent FFP: The Section 1115 Award Ceiling is $170,000 and the floor is $20,000. The FFP amount, calculated using the Section 1115 award ceiling amount, is $330,000. A project awarded the Section 1115 Award Ceiling of $170,000 would receive a total award of $500,000.

The Administration for Children and Families, Administration on Children, Youth and Families' Family and Youth Services Bureau announces the availability of funds under the Title V Competitive Sexual Risk Avoidance Education (Title V Competitive SRAE) Program. The purpose of the Title V Competitive SRAE is to fund projects to implement sexual risk avoidance education that teaches participants how to voluntarily refrain from non-marital sexual activity. The goals of Title V Competitive SRAE are to empower participants to make healthy decisions, and provide tools and resources to prevent pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and youth engagement in other risky behaviors. Successful applicants must agree to use medically accurate information referenced to peer-reviewed publications by educational, scientific, governmental, or health organizations; implement an evidence-based approach integrating research findings with practical implementation that aligns with the needs and desired outcomes for the intended audience; and teach the benefits associated with self-regulation, success sequencing for poverty prevention, healthy relationships, goal setting, and resisting sexual coercion, dating violence, and other youth risk behaviors such as underage drinking or illicit drug use without normalizing teen sexual activity. The SRAE legislation requires unambiguous and primary emphasis and context for each of the topics to be addressed in program implementation. Additionally, there is a requirement that messages to youth normalize the optimal health behavior of avoiding non-marital sexual activity.

WIC provides nutritious foods, nutrition education including breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health and other social services to participants in all 50 states, 34 Indian Tribal Organizations, American Samoa, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth Islands of the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This is an announcement of the availability of funds for one new cooperative agreement for FY 2019-2024 with a public or private academic research institution. In this funding cycle, the USDA anticipates awarding up to $8,500,000 in grant funding to support the implementation and evaluation of telehealth services in WIC. The majority of these funds, $5,000,000, shall be awarded as sub-grants through a competitive process to WIC State Agencies1 for the purpose of implementing telehealth innovations that supplement the nutrition education and breastfeeding support offered in the WIC clinic. The recipient of this cooperative agreement, referred to in this document as the Grantee, will carry out the competitive award process to select sub-grantees, design and conduct evaluations of each sub-grantee’s telehealth innovation project, and produce reports and publications to disseminate the findings. The legislative authority for this grant announcement is contained in the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 Section 17 (g) (5)2 as amended. Under this program, subject to the availability of funds, the Secretary of Agriculture may award competitive grants and cooperative agreements for the support of research projects to further USDA food and nutrition assistance programs. Further, Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019 (Public Law 116-6) specifically authorizes the allocation of $5,000,000 for telehealth competitive grants to supplement the nutrition education and breastfeeding support offered in the WIC clinic, and to decrease barriers to access to WIC services, particularly in rural communities, and other populations facing barriers to accessing support. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) defines telehealth as "the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support and promote clinical healthcare, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration." Technologies include video conferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications

Description

Based on funding availability, PAS Mission India will organize an all-India conference at an Indian institutions on internationalization. The selected host institutions should be a model of internationalization and must have active research and student/faculty exchange programs. Internationalization of institutions is required for providing quality higher education and is necessary to place institutions on the global rankings framework. Indian higher education institutions need to collaborate with their American and other foreign counterparts to be competitive in global research and innovation. The proposed conference should address the need for greater participation of American academics and students at Indian institutions and increased international content in Indian coursework to reflect today’s global nature of academia. The conference will attract approximately forty Indian institutions that have autonomy and have demonstrable interest in internationalization. Internationalization is the process by which institutions include global/cross cultural perspectives, curricula, research and participation of foreign students and scholar within their strategic and operational framework. The conference should attract a mix of private and public Indian universities. The grantee should identify both Indian and American experts who are able to design conference sessions and themes and topics that resonate with the needs and aspirations and capabilities of a majority of Indian institutions willingly to internationalize their campus community and curricula. It is important to note that Indian institutions display varying competence in internationalization and hence the selected grantee should be able to incorporate the varied learning requirements of the conference participants in the conference design process. After the conference, the grantee would be expected to conduct audits or visits at selected university campuses to advice on and evaluate the output of the grant activities. Grantee would be required to provide the Public Affairs section with a report of the visits and insights gained through discussions held at these events.

Description

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to provide competitive grant funds for Regional Partnership Grants (RPGs) to improve the well-being of, and to improve the permanency outcomes for children and families affected by opioids and other substance abuse. These targeted grants will be awarded to regional partnerships that provide, through interagency collaboration and integration of programs and services, activities and services that are designed to increase the well-being of, improve permanency outcomes for, and enhance the safety of children who are in out-of-home placements or are at risk of entering out-of-home placements as a result of a parent's or caretaker's substance abuse. Applicants are expected to have a collaborative structure in place that is capable of building a region’s capacity to meet a broad range of needs for families involved with both substance abuse treatment and the child welfare system. Per the legislative requirements, RPGs are required to select and report on performance indicators and evaluation measures to increase the knowledge that can be gained from the program. Partnerships will: use specific, well-defined, and evidence-based programs that are also trauma-informed and targeted to the identified population; conduct an evaluation that is sufficiently rigorous to contribute to the evidence base on service delivery, outcomes and costs associated with the project's chosen interventions; and participate in the national cross-site evaluation, which includes, but is not limited to an implementation and outcomes study. This project is for one 60-month project period, which includes a one-year Planning Phase and a 4-year Implementation Phase. Grantees should anticipate spending no more than $250,000 in the one-year Planning Phase and approximately one-fourth of the remaining project award per each 12-month period of the Implementation Phase.
