Environmental Literacy Grants: Supporting the education of K-12 students and the public for community resilience

Competition Opens

10/15/2019

Competition Closes

03/26/2020

Description

The goal of this funding opportunity is to build environmental literacy of K-12 students and the public so they are knowledgeable of the ways in which their community can become more resilient to extreme weather and/or other environmental hazards, and become involved in achieving that resilience. Projects should build the collective environmental literacy necessary for communities to become more resilient to the extreme weather and other environmental hazards they face in the short- and long-term. Building sufficient environmental literacy in a community means that these communities are composed of individuals who are supported by formal and informal education that develop their knowledge, skills, and confidence to: (1) reason about the ways that human and natural systems interact globally and where they live, including the acknowledgement of disproportionately distributed vulnerabilities; (2) participate in scientific and/or civic processes; and (3) consider scientific uncertainty, cultural knowledge, and diverse community values in decision making. Projects should demonstrate how they will engage community members to build these capabilities, particularly through active learning, during the award period. Projects should leverage and incorporate relevant state and local hazard mitigation and/or adaptation plans and collaborate with individuals and institutions that are involved in efforts to develop or implement those plans. Projects may focus on a single location or multiple locations and a single type of environmental hazard or a range of hazards that impact a community or communities. Projects will be based on the established scientific evidence about current and future extreme weather and other environmental hazards facing communities and should consider relevant socioeconomic and ecological factors in the targeted location(s). Particular attention should be paid to populations within communities that have greater exposure and have fewer resources to deal with the impacts of extreme weather and/or environmental hazards that are the focus of the project. Projects must relate to NOAA’s mission in at least one of the following areas: ocean, coastal, Great Lakes, weather, and climate sciences and stewardship. They must also utilize NOAA’s scientific data, data access tools, data visualizations, and/or other physical and intellectual assets available on these topics. In order to facilitate the use of NOAA’s assets, projects are strongly encouraged to partner with relevant NOAA entities (offices, programs, etc.) and/or NOAA employees and affiliates. Also, projects should consider integrating citizen science tools when appropriate. This funding opportunity has two priorities, numbered without regard to importance for funding. Priority 1 awards will support new projects located in Southern and Western Regions of the United States. The Southern Region includes the following states and territories: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, Texas, and the United States Virgin Islands. The Western Region includes the following states and territories: Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Northern Mariana Islands, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Priority 2 awards will support the evolution of projects funded under the 2015-2016 funding opportunities from this program (NOAA-SEC-OED-2015-2004408 and NOAA-SEC-OED-2016-2004737). The full list of awards that support or supported eligible projects can be found here: https://go.usa.gov/xVGzr. Projects for this priority must be implemented within the United States and its territories. For both priorities of this funding opportunity, eligible applicants are limited to institutions of higher education; K-12 public and independent schools and school systems; other nonprofits, including community-based organizations and informal education institutions, such as museums, zoos, and aquariums; state and local government agencies; and Indian tribal governments in the United States. For-profit organizations, foreign institutions, and individuals are not eligible to apply; however, for- profit organizations, foreign institutions, and individuals may participate as project partners. Likewise, federal agencies are not eligible to receive federal assistance under this announcement, but may be project partners. For Priority 1, projects must be between 2 and 5 years in duration and the total federal amount requested from NOAA for each project must be no less than $250,000 and no more than $500,000 for all years of the project, including direct and indirect costs. For Priority 2, projects must be between 2 and 5 years in duration and the total federal amount requested from NOAA for each project must be no less than $100,000 and no more than $500,000 for all years of the project, including direct and indirect costs. It is anticipated that awards funded under this announcement and selected this fiscal year will be made by September 30, 2020 and that the projects funded under this announcement in fiscal year 2020 will have a start date no earlier than October 1, 2020.

This Annual Program Statement (APS) publicizes the intention of the United States Government (USG), as represented by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Bureau for Global Health (GH), to fund one or multiple awards to address the overarching APS program purpose. The purpose is to accelerate reductions in maternal,newborn, and child mortality and morbidity in high-burden, USAID-supported countries by increasing the capacity of host country institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), voluntary family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) services. This main APS document (located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting) outlines the goal, purpose, expected results, and priorities of MOMENTUM (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health [MNCH/FP/RH] Services to Scale), and may result in multiple awards issued under subsequent APS Rounds. Note: When referencing MOMENTUM in this document, it is referring to the full portfolio of possible awards under this overall purpose. This specific document is an umbrella APS and will not be accepting concept papers or applications. Prospective applicants will be provided a fair opportunity to develop and submit competitive concept papers to USAID for potential funding via discrete Rounds under this APS. For the purposes of the MOMENTUM APS, a “Round” is defined as a specific program description that falls under the larger MOMENTUM APS goal,purpose, and results but is tailored to a certain focus. Under each Round,applicants will first submit a short concept paper that will be reviewed for responsiveness to the overall MOMENTUM purpose, selected results, and Round’s focus and then scored according to the evaluation criteria provided in the Round document. If an applicant is successful in the concept paper stage, applicant representatives may be invited to join a co-creation workshop. Following the co-creation process, selected applicants (individual organizations and/or consortia developed at concept paper stage or during co-creation) will be requested to submit a Full Application, the content and format of which will be provided in greater detail by the Agreement Officer. Publishing this APS does not commit USAID to make any awards. USAID also reserves the right to not conduct a co-creation workshop and request Full Applications from successful applicants at concept paper stage. Pending funding availability, there may be multiple Rounds for this APS that will all aim to meet the Purpose and Results mentioned above. The financial range for award(s) will be specified in each Round. Issuance of this APS does not constitute an award or commitment on the part of the USG, nor does it commit the USG to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of a concept paper or an application. USAID reserves the right to close or amend the APS on or before the closing date of September 30, 2025. Therefore, for each issued Round, organizations are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to be considered for review to maximize the possibility of receiving available funding. As Rounds occur, notifications will be posted on Grants.gov. Please refer to the specific Round documents for detailed information on the concept paper submission guidance including Round points of contact, concept paper requirements, and evaluation criteria for the specific Round. These Round documents should be located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting. For questions on this APS document, please submit all questions to Mrs. Samantha Pierre via email at spierre@usaid.gov by April 29, 2019 at 12:00 pm ET. For a USAID Mission or USAID/Washington Office wishing to issue a Round under this APS, the program description must fit within Section I of this document.

Description

The Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program provides support for master’s and doctoral degrees in oceanography, marine biology, or maritime archaeology—this can include but is not limited to ocean and/or coastal: engineering, social science, marine education, marine stewardship, resource management disciplines—and particularly encourages women and members of minority groups to apply. Individuals who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, or citizens of U.S. territories, and are applying to or have been accepted to a graduate program at a U.S. accredited institution, may apply. Prospective scholars do not need to be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application but must be admitted to a graduate level program in order to be awarded this scholarship. Scholarship selections are based on academic excellence, letters of recommendations, research and career goals, and financial need. Applicants must have a cumulative 3.30 grade point average to be eligible to apply and maintain a minimum cumulative and term grade point average of 3.30 for every term and for the duration of their award. Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarships may provide, subject to appropriations, yearly support of up to $42,000 per student (a 12-month stipend of $30,000 in addition to an education allowance of up to $12,000) and up to $10,000 of support for a 4-6 week program collaboration at a NOAA facility. Applicants can only obtain funding for the number of years they have remaining in their graduate studies when they applied for the Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program. For example, if you have already completed two years of your PhD studies, and you become a Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship recipient and indicate it will take you two additional years to complete your degree, you will only be able to obtain funds for the remaining two years of your graduate studies. Note that scholars are allowed one (1) one-year no-cost extension that must be requested at least 60 days before the end of the award and will need to provide a justification and a current budget. Completion of one (1) program collaboration is required for every doctoral scholarship award, with a second recommended, but not required. For master's degree level scholars, completion of a program collaboration is strongly recommended, but not required. The Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship funds cannot be used toward research costs. Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program recipients will be required to participate in a mandatory NOAA Orientation Training to meet with the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries staff at a date and location to be determined in the summer of 2020. If scholarships have not been awarded before this training, recipients may be required to incur pre-award costs that will be reimbursed after award funds have been issued. As a recipient of the Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program, you become a recognized member of the NOAA community. NOAA provides significant financial resources to help you pursue your independent graduate degree, as well as the staff expertise to assist you with your research along the way. Therefore, Dr. Nancy Foster Scholars must conduct some specific outreach efforts. To help increase diversity of future applicants, Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program recipients must give at least one presentation about the Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program to a diverse audience, such as undergraduate students at a minority serving institution, historically black colleges and universities, or other appropriate venue(s). All Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program recipients must also put together an outreach product (e.g., video, infographic) that communicates their scientific research in a way that the average viewer can understand it, its importance, and its relevance to the NOAA mission. Appropriate training in the creation of outreach products will be provided to all scholarship recipients. Dr. Nancy Foster Scholars also participate in a program collaboration. This opportunity is designed to allow scholars to participate in research or other activities for four to six weeks at a field office of the National Marine Sanctuary System, or other NOAA program offices. Federal support for the program collaboration may be used toward allowable costs such as: travel to and from the NOAA facility, housing, per diem, laboratory costs, research vessel support, and consumables while conducting research at the NOAA facility. Scholars are required to provide their own health insurance coverage during the program collaboration. More details on allowable costs can be found in 2 CFR part 200, Subpart E – Cost Principles. If scholars choose to participate in a program collaboration during a specific year, they must notify the Program Officer by December of the academic year in which they intend to participate in the collaboration. Approval from the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is required prior to embarking on the program collaboration. In order to have a competitive application for the Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program, it is recommended that you review the following bullets to assess whether or not you should apply for this scholarship. 1. Your research proposal aligns closely with NOAA's mission, with particular emphasis on meeting the science needs of the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. This is 20% of your application score. 2. Your financial need statement documents a strong financial need due to challenges, hardships, or other information through a compelling personal narrative. This is 25% of your application score. 3. You (likely) have exceptional letters of recommendation. This is 10% of your application score. 4. Historically, proposals that do not support the science needs of NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary System do not rank as high. 5. If you are in the last year of your Masters or Ph.D. program, it is not advised to apply for this scholarship. Additional information about the scholarship can be obtained in the full announcement text of the Federal Funding Opportunity.

Description

The National Science Foundation&apos;s (NSF&apos;s) Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Initiative is a Foundation-wide effort to accelerate improvements in the quality and effectiveness of undergraduate education in all STEM fields including the learning, social, behavioral, and economic sciences. Undergraduate STEM education is critical for preparing both a diverse STEM workforce and a STEM-literate public that is ready to support and benefit from the progress of science [Reference 1]. The IUSE initiative provides a Foundation-wide framework of investments to support the agency&apos;s commitment to the highest caliber undergraduate STEM education. By improving the quality and effectiveness of undergraduate education in all STEM fields, IUSE investments enable NSF to lead national progress toward a diverse and innovative workforce and a STEM-literate public. Through the IUSE framework, NSF coordinates its investments in undergraduate programs and undergraduate STEM education to maximize impact, and to use shared metrics and appropriate program evaluation approaches. These investments are made across all directorates and address both STEM education in general and specific disciplinary needs. IUSE investments support a variety of activities including the inclusion of inquiry-based and active learning approaches in undergraduate STEM instruction, efforts to increase undergraduate STEM research experiences and courses, and research on the persistence and graduation of students in STEM programs. In addition, specific emerging cross-disciplinary needs include data science preparation for students in all majors, recruitment and retention of women and of students from underrepresented groups in STEM degree programs, incorporation of undergraduate research in STEM fields for STEM majors and non-majors, and re-envisioning of introductory courses in light of new research findings and theories. IUSE also seeks to broaden participation in STEM fields from all sectors and groups in society and proposers are encouraged to establish linkages, as appropriate, with components of the national network of NSF INCLUDES projects [Reference 2 in the Program Description section]. The Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) contributes to the IUSE initiative through the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Pathways into the Geosciences - Earth, Ocean, Polar and Atmospheric Sciences (IUSE:GEOPAths) funding opportunity. IUSE:GEOPAths invites proposals that specifically address the current needs and opportunities related to education within the geosciences community through the formation of STEM Learning Ecosystems that engage students in the study of the Earth, its oceans, polar regions and atmosphere. The primary goal of the IUSE:GEOPAths funding opportunity is to increase the number of students pursuing undergraduate and/or postgraduate degrees through the design and testing of novel approaches that engage students in authentic, career-relevant experiences in geoscience. In order to broaden participation in the geosciences, engaging students from historically excluded groups or from non-geoscience degree programs is a priority. While maintaining elements from the legacy tracks of GEOPATHS, this solicitation features three new funding tracks that focus on Geoscience Learning Ecosystems (GLEs): 1. GEOPAths: Informal Networks (IN). Collaborative projects in this track will support geoscience learning and experiences in informal settings for teachers, pre-college (e.g., upper level high school) students, and early undergraduates in the geosciences. 2. GEOPAths: Undergraduate Preparation (UP). Projects in this track will engage pre-college and undergraduate students in extra-curricular experiences and training in the geosciences with a focus on service learning [Reference 3 in the Program Description section] and workplace skill building. 3. GEOPAths: Graduate Opportunities (GO). Projects in this track will improve research and career-related pathways into the geosciences for undergraduate and graduate students through institutional collaborations with a focus on service learning and workplace skill building.

Description

The intent of this cooperative agreement is to fund an entity that has active working relationships with Native American tribes and/or organizations that have demonstrated experience developing and providing science-based, culturally specific food safety training, education, outreach, and technical assistance for tribes, tribal businesses, and/or tribal members, with an emphasis on agricultural production and human food manufacturing/processing. The Native American produce farmers and processors targeted by this cooperative agreement may or may not be covered under FSMA (e.g., due to sales or distribution channels), however, should handle commodities relevant to these regulations. Subcontracts to organizations that meet the intent noted above are encouraged. It is expected that applicants will specifically include collaboration between and among national and regional tribal stakeholder leaders, relevant tribal organizations, tribal colleges and universities and associated national organizations; as well as land grant cooperative extension programs, and other organizations and partners involved in national food safety efforts, in order to reach the intended audience. In addition, applicants are encouraged to collaborate with the established FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Alliances and other organizations that deliver FSMA education and outreach. Extensive cooperation and coordination with FDA CFSAN and other FDA program offices, Regional Centers (administered under the USDA-NIFA Food Safety Outreach Program (FSOP)), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other Federal organizations that have a vested interest in food safety among tribal stakeholders is also encouraged, including FSOP grants targeting tribes. Participation in regional and national meetings covering FSMA training and outreach (such as the FDA-USDA FSMA Collaborative Training Forum) is also expected.The primary objective of this cooperative agreement is to provide training, education, outreach, address training gaps (e.g., by developing training materials) and to facilitate identification of appropriate technical assistance resources to produce farming and food manufacturing/processing members of federally recognized tribes related to the applicable federal regulations under FSMA, especially the Produce Safety and Preventive Controls for Human Food rules. In addition, consideration should be given to tribal stakeholders not currently subject to the regulatory requirements but that have conveyed an interest in or have identified economic incentives to comply (i.e., marketplace requirements to comply or business growth outlooks) with such regulations. Research to evaluate the program should also be completed, which includes data collection and analysis, to assess the impact of education, outreach and technical assistance on addressing training/knowledge gaps of the target audience previously identified. This agreement focuses primarily on the standards for Produce Safety and Preventive Controls for Human Food rules; however, more broadly all regulations under FSMA should be considered by the applicant, as any may apply to tribal members based on their specific operation.Program Area DescriptionFSMA was signed into law in 2011 and provided FDA with a legislative mandate to require comprehensive, prevention-based controls across the food supply along with other prevention-focused tools in order to create substantial improvements in the Agency&#8217;s approach to food safety. Standards that FDA is directed to issue under FSMA include requirements for hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for both human food and animal food and standards for produce safety, among other rulemaking and guidance development activities. The regulations include requirements for training and employee qualifications. Additionally, FSMA calls for enhanced partnerships and integration with FDA&#8217;s food safety Federal, State, local, tribal and territorial partners in order to achieve public health goals. To this end, the Agency has been working with such partners to develop and implement an integrated food safety system. To be successful, an integrated national food safety system must build upon the work currently being done by FDA and our regulatory and public health partners. Additional work is needed in terms of active communication, coordination, and support. One important step towards implementing an integrated national food safety system will entail training, education, outreach and understanding technical assistance needs for tribal members that grow, harvest, pack or hold produce, or process foods. Among other roles, it is FDA&#8217;s role and responsibility to collaborate with other food regulatory agencies, but to also assist through incentives or other means state, local and tribal regulatory and public health programs working to meet these standards.To build an integrated national food safety system, the need for outreach and training related to FSMA will continue to be available to tribal produce farmers, packers and food manufacturers/processors. FDA anticipates that federally recognized tribes will need food safety education and training that addresses the regulatory requirements of the applicable FSMA rules and also encompasses specific cultural practices associated with produce farming and food manufacturing/processing within tribes relevant to their status as sovereign nations. Additionally, these tribal stakeholders frequently have limited access to adequate and affordable food safety training, education, outreach, and technical assistance. FDA will engage in a cooperative agreement with one or more collaborators that will develop and implement food safety training, education, outreach and identification of technical assistance resources for key tribal stakeholders, including farmers, packers and manufacturers/processors that grow, harvest, pack and hold produce, and process food impacted by FSMA. It is expected that existing training materials, such as the standardized curriculum developed by the Produce Safety Alliance or the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance, would be used as a foundation for customization/modification, where appropriate, to meet tribal needs. In addition, the Sprout Safety Alliance will be a resource for existing training materials specific to sprout growers. Customization/modification of these existing training materials would likely address regional practices and needs, including addressing specific tribal practices associated with produce farming and food manufacturing/processing. FDA intends to work with the recipient to ensure that alternate curricula are recognized by FDA. Research to evaluate and assess the impact of education, outreach and technical assistance on addressing training/knowledge gaps of the target audience. The applicant would be expected to collaborate with FDA, USDA and other educational partners as appropriate to complete the program evaluation.This cooperative agreement is beneficial to public health because it would further drive compliance with the final federal preventive control regulations, especially the Produce Safety and Preventive Controls for Human Food rules; would help ensure consistency of implementation throughout the United States; would leverage existing expertise, knowledge, and enforcement authorities of tribal regulatory staff; and ultimately reduce foodborne illness.The program will focus on helping tribal audiences understand Federal food safety agricultural production and processing regulations and guidance enacted under FSMA, thus enabling them to implement those regulations and guidelines in their respective environments. The program will provide training, education and outreach, and build capacity and infrastructure, as well as alternate curriculum development and/or adaptation of the standardized curriculum, in addition to identifying technical assistance resources for tribal audiences impacted by FSMA regulations and guidance.The other preventive controls rules are available on FDA&apos;s website at http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/FSMA/default.htm, or upon request.
