  • By Dr. Jianhui Wang, Argonne National Laboratory. Feb 8 at 1:00 PM in 4-201 Center for Science and Technology

Funding Opportunities

For Graduate Students

Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship Program

  • Deadline: Mar 10 for the 2017-2018 academic year; FLAS Fellowships support Syracuse graduate students with $15,000 toward stipend and 24 credits of tuition during the academic year. FLAS fellowships are awarded for Hindi-Urdu study at Syracuse University. Eligible students: US citizens or permanent residents.

For Faculty

Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI)

  • Mar 1 (NSF); CICI comprises two Program areas outlined below: 1. Resilient Security Architecture for Research Cyberinfrastructure 2. Cybersecurity Enhancement. Limited Submission: contact ospoff@syr.edu if you intend to submit.

Energy-Efficient Computing: from Devices to Architectures  (E2CDA)

  • Mar 7 (NSF and SRC); Seeks proposals in one of the two areas 1) Disruptive system architectures, circuit microarchitectures, and attendant device and interconnect technology aimed at achieving the highest level of computational energy efficiency.  2) Revolutionary device concepts and associated circuits and architectures that will greatly extend the practical engineering limits of energy-efficient computation

Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SSE, SSI, S2I2)

  • Mar 7 for SSE (NSF); SSE awards target small groups that will create and deploy robust software elements for which there is a demonstrated need that will advance one or more significant areas of science and engineering.

Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) Program

  • Apr 30 (DoE); this program supports state-of-the-art research at U.S. academic institutions in areas of fundamental physical science and technology of relevance to the SSP mission. The SSAA Program provides the research experience necessary to maintain a cadre of trained scientists at U.S. universities to meet the nation’s current and future SSP needs, with a focus on those areas not supported by other federal agencies.

Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER)

  • July 19 for BIO, CISE, EHR, July 20 for ENG and July 21 for GEO, MPS, SBE (NSF); The CAREER program embodies NSF’s commitment to encourage faculty and academic institutions to value and support the integration of research and education. Successful Principal Investigators will propose creative, effective research and education plans, developed within the context of the mission, goals, and resources of their organizations, while building a firm foundation for a lifetime of contributions to research, education, and their integration.

Geotechnical Engineering and Materials  (GEM) 

  • No Deadline (NSF); The Program supports the traditional areas of foundation engineering, earth structures, underground construction, tunneling, geo-environmental engineering, and site characterization, as well as the emerging area of bio-geo engineering, for civil engineering applications, with emphasis on sustainable geosystems.
