NEW Limited Submissions Programs and Strategic Grants

Dear Faculty,

Welcome back! We hope that your summer afforded you time to relax, reflect, and recharge, and that the fall 2022 semester is off to a great start for you and your students. We are pleased to continue sharing up-to-date notices of limited submissions and strategic grant opportunities at the beginning of each month, as one of the many ways our team supports your research, scholarship, and creative activities. Please review the lists below for the latest notices.

Up-to-date information is also available anytime on our SJSU InfoReady Portal (for limited submissions) and via our SJSU Strategic Grants list within Pivot — SJSU’s go-to tool for finding funding. Past “top-of-the month” communications and monthly newsletters from the Office of Research associate vice president can be found on the Office of Research website under Communications.

All the best,
Julia Gaudinski
Director of Research Development

The BIG Program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase a single high-priced, specialized, commercially available instrument or an integrated instrumentation system. Instruments supported include, but are not limited to, basic cell sorters, confocal microscopes, ultramicrotomes, gel imagers, or computer systems.

NIH | Genome Research Experiences to Attract Talented Undergraduates into Genomic Fields to Enhance Diversity (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
≤$350K/yr. | Internal SJSU Deadline: January 20, 2023 | Sponsor Deadline: July 1, 2023
The overarching goal of this NHGRI R25 program is to support educational activities that encourage undergraduates from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical workforce, to pursue further training and careers in the scientific, medical, ethical, social and/or legal areas of genomics research. To accomplish the stated overarching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on: 1) research experiences, and 2) courses for skills development.

Minority Serving Institutions & Underserved Communities
USDA-NIFA | Hispanic-Serving Institutions Education Grants Program
$50K-$1M | Internal SJSU Deadline: November 11, 2022 | Sponsor Deadline: January 25, 2023
This competitive grants program is intended to promote and strengthen the ability of Hispanic-Serving Institutions to carry out higher education programs in the food and agricultural sciences. Programs aim to attract outstanding students and produce graduates capable of enhancing the Nation's food and agricultural scientific and professional workforce.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
NSF | Expanding Capacity in Quantum Information Science and Engineering (Track 2)
$800K-$5M | Internal SJSU Deadline: November 4, 2022 | Sponsor Deadline: March 3, 2023
The ExpandQISE program helps build and maintain a close connection between new efforts and existing impactful work done at the existing QISE Centers or leading QISE research Institutions, while creating and nurturing necessary critical mass at Institutions not yet fully involved in QISE. In keeping with the NSF goal of increasing the participation of all members of society in the scientific enterprise, institutions at which more than 50% of enrolled students come from groups that are currently under-represented in the sciences, e.g. minority-serving institutions (MSIs), are especially encouraged to apply.

New Strategic Grant Highlights
Humanities & The Arts
NEH | Digital Humanities Advancement Grants (DHAG)
$75K-$350K | Deadline: January 12, 2023
The DHAG program supports projects at different phases of their lifecycles that respond to one or more of these programmatic priorities.

Minority Serving Institutions & Underserved Communities
NSF | Building Research Capacity of New Faculty in Biology (BRC-BIO)
$500K | December 30, 2022
The focus is on enhancing research capacity and broadening participation of new faculty of biology at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs) that are not among the nation's most research-intensive institutions. Note: Equipment costs above $50K will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

DoD Research and Education Program for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI)
$1M | Deadline: Open Continuously until April 30, 2024
Support for research, development, testing, evaluation, or educational enhancements will be through the competitive awarding of grants or cooperative agreements. The top DoD research and engineering activities intended to modernize DoD’s key capabilities and support the NDS are: a. Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning; b. Autonomy; c. Bioscience; d. Biotechnology; e. Cyber; f. Data Analytics; g. Directed Energy; h. Fully Networked Command, Control and Communications (FNC3); i. Hypersonics; j. Materials Science and Engineering; k. Microelectronics; l. Quantum Science; and m. Space.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

$8.5M (5-6 awards) | Preliminary Proposal (required) Due: September 19, 2022 | Full Proposal Deadline: January 31, 2023
This solicitation will support fundamental research activities that confront vexing environmental engineering and sustainability problems by developing foundational knowledge underlying processes and mechanisms such that the design of innovative new materials, processes, and systems is possible.

NSF | Advanced Technologies and Instrumentation for the Astronomical Sciences (ATI)
$8M (10 awards) | Deadline: November 15, 2022
Supported categories include (but are not limited to): advanced technology development, concept feasibility studies, and specialized instrumentation to enable new observations that are difficult or impossible to obtain with existing means. Proposals may include hardware and/or software development and/or analysis to enable new types of astronomical observations.

NSF | Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Grants (AAG)
$50M (100 projects) | Deadline: November 15, 2022
The Program provides individual investigator and collaborative research grants for observational, theoretical, laboratory, and archival data studies in astronomy and astrophysics. Proposals may span multiple disciplines and/or areas of study and may utilize multiple techniques.

DOC | Weather Program Office Research Programs
