External Research Funding Opportunities
Welcome to the IAShub Research Funding Prospects page!
Below you will find information pertaining to research funding opportunities relating to science, technology and engineering!
National Science Foundation Facilitation Awards
The National Science Foundation encourages scientists and engineers with disabilities to participate fully in all of its programs. This announcement describes opportunities for physically disabled persons to facilitate their work by providing special equipment or assistance needed in conjunction with NSF-supported projects. This announcement covers all projects supported by NSF in science and engineering research or education, including fellowships.
National Institutes of Health Grant / T32 Training Program for Institutions That Promote Diversity
The purpose of this FOA (Funding Opportunity Announcement) is to increase the participation of individuals from diverse backgrounds in cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic and sleep disorders research across the career development continuum. The NHLBI’s T32 Training Program for Institutions That Promote Diversity is a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Program intended to support training of predoctoral and health professional students and individuals in postdoctoral training at non-research intensive institutions with an institutional mission focused on serving diverse communities that are not well represented in NIH-funded research, or identified federal legislation of same, with the potential to develop meritorious training programs in cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic, and sleep disorders.
National Institutes of Health Grant / Mentored Career Development Award to Promote Faculty Diversity/Re-Entry in Biomedical Research (K01)
This FOA (Funding Opportunity Announcement) issued by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), invites applications to increase the number of highly trained investigators, from diverse backgrounds or who wish to re-enter their research careers after a hiatus due to family circumstances. It is targeted toward individuals whose basic and clinical research interests are grounded in the advanced methods and experimental approaches needed to solve problems related to cardiovascular, pulmonary, and hematologic diseases in the general and health disparities populations.
Broadening Participation Research Initiation Grants in Engineering (BRIGE)
The purpose of this FOA (Funding Opportunity Announcement) issued by the Directorate for Engineering (ENG) at the National Science Foundation, is offering research initiation grants under the Broadening Participation Research Initiation Grants in Engineering program, BRIGE. ENG offers this BRIGE funding opportunity to all beginning engineers with the intent of increasing the diversity of researchers in the engineering disciplines. The goal of the BRIGE solicitation is to increase the number of proposals to the Directorate for Engineering from individuals who can serve as role models and mentors for an increasingly diverse engineering student population who will become the workforce of the future. BRIGE aims to support innovative research and diversity plans that contribute to recruiting and retaining a broad representation of engineering researchers especially those from groups that are underrepresented in the engineering population. Throughout this solicitation, the term underrepresented groups will refer to and include the following: women, persons with disabilities, and ethnic/racial groups which are in the minority in engineering such as African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Pacific Islanders.
Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hereby notify Principal Investigators holding specific types of NIH research grants, listed in the full Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) that funds are available for administrative supplements to improve the diversity of the research workforce by supporting and recruiting students, postdoctorates, and eligible investigators from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented. Although the administrative supplements supported under this program provide funding for less than one percent of all individuals involved in NIH supported research, the NIH has found these awards to be an effective means of encouraging institutions to recruit from currently underrepresented groups. Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of the original project.
