     The Irvington Institute Fellowship Program of
the Cancer Research Institute, formerly the Cancer
Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship
Program, answers the need for more researchers in
the field of cancer immunology. It supports
qualified young scientists at leading universities
and research centers around the world who wish to
receive training in cancer immunology or general
immunology. A panel of 23 scientists drawn from
the Institute's Scientific Advisory Council
rigorously evaluates each candidate, the intended
sponsor and training environment, and the nature
and feasibility of the proposed project.
ELIGIBILITY: Applicants must have a doctoral
degree by the date of award activation and must
conduct their proposed research under a sponsor
who holds a formal appointment at the host
institution. Applicants with 5 or more years of
relevant postdoctoral experience are not eligible,
with the exception of M.D. applicants, who should
not include years of residency in this
calculation. Only in exceptional circumstances
will applicants who have already spent 3 or more
years in a sponsor's laboratory by the start date
of fellowship be considered for a fellowship
award. Work can be carried out in the United
States or abroad but must take place at non-profit
institutions. Only one fellow per sponsor may
apply per application round, and faculty sponsors
may not have more than three CRI-supported fellows
at any time. FUNDING: The fellowship provides
stipends of $45,000 for the first year, $47,000
for the second year and $49,000 for the third
year. In addition, an allowance of $1,500 per year
is allotted to the host institution for use at
sponsor's discretion to help pay for the fellow's
research supplies, travel to scientific meetings
or health insurance. Stipends and institutional
allowances are not permitted to cover
administrative expenses. Payments are made monthly
in U.S. currency to the host institution.

     The Foundation intends to further the
humanities along a broad front, supporting
projects which address the concerns of the
historical studia humanitatis: a humanistic
education rooted in the great traditions of the
past; the formation of human beings according to
cultural, moral, and aesthetic ideals derived from
that past; and the ongoing debate over how these
ideals may best be conceived and realized.
Programs in the following areas are eligible:
history; archaeology; literature; languages, both
classical and modern; philosophy, ethics;
comparative religion; the history, criticism, and
theory of the arts; and those aspects of the
social sciences which share the content and
methods of humanistic disciplines. The Foundation
welcomes projects that cross the boundaries
between humanistic disciplines and explore the
connection between the humanities and other areas
of scholarship. ELIGIBILITY: The Humanities
Program is primarily directed to institutions of
higher education and humanistic enterprises such
as learned societies, museums, and major editorial
projects. The program may also consider, on a
selective basis, projects that increase the
exposure of those outside these institutions to
the humanistic experience or that strengthen
preparation for the humanistic disciplines in
secondary education. The prime criterion remains
that of Gladys and Jean Paul Delmas: a commitment
to excellence, whether proven or promised.
FUNDING: In 2008, grants were made ranging from
about $5,000 to $135,000.

     The NOAA National Environmental Satellite,
Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) invites
applications for a Cooperative Institute (CI) that
will focus on satellite studies related to weather
and environmental analysis. The CI will focus on
the themes of: (1) Satellite Meteorology Research
and Applications; (2) Satellite Sensors and
Techniques; (3) Environmental Models and Data
Assimilation; and (4) Outreach and Education. The
CI will be established at a research institution
not only having an outstanding graduate degree
program in NOAA-related sciences, but also
expected to work closely with STAR's Advanced
Satellite Products Branch currently located in
Madison, WI, with seven federal employees. It is
NOAA's intent to move these employees to the new
CI as funding allows. The CI will provide
significant coordination of resources among all
non-governmental partners and will promote the
involvement of students and post-doctoral
scientists in NOAA-funded research. ELIGIBILITY:
Eligibility is limited to non-Federal public and
private non-profit universities, colleges and
research institutions that offer accredited
graduate level degree-granting programs in
NOAA-related sciences, as described in the CI
Interim Handbook located at www.nrc.noaa.gov/ci.
If the CI is comprised of multiple member
institutions, NOAA will issue only one award to
the lead institution which applied for the award
and where the CI will be established. FUNDING:
NOAA anticipates that up to approximately $12M
will be available annually for this CI. The award
period will be five years and may be renewed for
up to an additional five years based on the
outcome of a peer review in the fourth year.

FAX:     314/721-7421

     21st Century Research Awards are designed to
support research projects with a high probability
of generating new knowledge and insights. Projects
submitted for funding consideration should be at
an early, even preliminary stage of development,
and should be intended to break new ground or to
challenge commonly-held assumptions. Projects
submitted should be sufficiently novel,
cross-disciplinary, or heterodox so that they have
a strong likelihood of influencing the development
of new ways of thinking about important problems.
21st Century Research Awards provide adequate,
flexible funding over a sufficient time period to
allow investigators to pursue and develop
innovative directions to their research programs.
ELIGIBILITY: JSMF funds internationally.
Applications must be sponsored by a nonprofit
institution. Graduate students and postdoctoral
fellows are not eligible to apply for 21st Century
Research Awards. Principle investigators must have
completed academic training and hold a position
compatible with the pursuit of independent
research. At most institutions this requirement
corresponds to individuals at the assistant
professor level and above. When senior scientists
serve as principle investigators the proposal must
describe, in detail, how they (and not only their
research assistants and post-doctoral fellows)
will use the requested funds to pursue research
building on but departing from ongoing work in
their laboratories. FUNDING: A maximum of $450,000
total costs can be requested and the funds can be
expended over a minimum of 3 years or a maximum of
6 years. Smaller amounts of money expended over
shorter amounts of time may be requested to help
investigators pursue pilot projects or test the
feasibility of an experimental approach.

requirement is that the proposed project is
consistent with NIST's ongoing work in the field
of basic measurement science. ELIGIBILITY:
Eligible applicants are institutions of higher
education; hospitals; non-profit organizations;
commercial organizations; State, local and Indian
Tribal governments; foreign governments;
organizations under the jurisdiction of foreign

subsequently prepares an expository monograph
based upon these lectures, which is normally
published as a part of a regional conference
series. Depending upon the conference topic, the
monograph is published by the American
Mathematical Society, the Society for Industrial
and Applied Mathematics, or jointly by the
American Statistical Association and the Institute
of Mathematical Statistics. Support is provided
for about 30 participants at each conference and
the conference organizer invites both established
researchers and interested newcomers, including
postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, to
attend. ELIGIBILITY: Colleges or universities with
at least some research competence in the field of
the proposal are eligible to apply. Since a major
goal of these conferences is to attract new
researchers into the field of the conference and
to stimulate new research activity, institutions
that are interested in upgrading or improving
their research efforts are especially encouraged
to apply. FUNDING: Typical awards for these
conferences vary between $33,000 and $35,000. CBMS
pays the lecturer a stipend of $2,000 for the
delivery of the lectures and an additional stipend
of $5,000 when the lecturer delivers to CBMS a
manuscript for publication satisfactory to NSF.
The lecturer's stipends are paid directly by CBMS
and are not to be part of the budget of the host
institution's proposal.

environmental synthesis center to stimulate
research, education and outreach at the interface
of the biological, geological, and social
sciences. The center will foster synthetic,
collaborative, cross-disciplinary efforts to
understand and predict the complex interactions
among ecological populations, communities and
ecosystems, the geophysical environment, and human
actions and decisions that underlie global
environmental change. It will play a pivotal role
in forecasting adaptive responses to environmental
change and understanding sudden shifts in dynamic
systems. The center will also directly involve
policy makers, managers, and conservation efforts,
and educate an informed citizenry. The center will
be international in its scope, addressing the most
pressing challenges posed by global environmental
change. The center represents a new effort, based
on NSF's substantial investments in ongoing
synthesis activities, and is not intended to
extend or duplicate these activities. The
Biological Sciences Directorate expects this
center to lead the next generation of synthesis
activities. ELIGIBILITY: (a) Non-profit,
non-academic organizations: Independent museums,
observatories, research labs, professional
societies and similar organizations in the U.S.
associated with educational or research
activities. (b) Universities and two- and
four-year colleges (including community colleges)
accredited in, and having a campus located in the
US, acting on behalf of their faculty members.
FUNDING: One award will be made for up to
$30,000,000 over a five-year period.

     The Integrative Graduate Education and
Research Traineeship (IGERT) program has been
developed to meet the challenges of educating U.S.
Ph.D. scientists and engineers who will pursue
careers in research and education, with the
interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in
chosen disciplines, and technical, professional,
and personal skills to become, in their own
careers, leaders and creative agents for change.
The program is intended to catalyze a cultural
change in graduate education, for students,
faculty, and institutions, by establishing
innovative new models for graduate education and
training in a fertile environment for
collaborative research that transcends traditional
disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended to
facilitate diversity in student participation and
preparation, and to contribute to a world-class,
broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science
and engineering workforce. ELIGIBILITY: U.S.
academic institutions in the United States, its
territories or possessions that grant the Ph.D.
degree in the sciences and engineering may submit
proposals. Projects may involve more than one
institution, but a single institution must accept
overall management responsibility. The lead
institution must independently grant the Ph.D.
degree in at least one of the science, technology,
engineering and mathematics fields supported by
the National Science Foundation and at least one
Ph.D. granting unit should participate in the
IGERT. Non-Ph.D. granting institutions,
nonacademic, and international organizations may
serve as collaborating organizations. FUNDING:
$10.8 million for 18 new and renewal awards.
