The Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. These $60,000, two-year fellowships are awarded yearly to 126 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.
The NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U.S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions.
This 2nd year pilot program is designed to celebrate and support humanities faculty who embrace public engagement as part of the scholarly vocation. These fellowships aim to identify professors with a demonstrated commitment to using their intellectual expertise to reach wider audiences and to fund ambitious projects designed to have direct and significant impact on a specific public outside the academy.
As of May 31, ORSP has already heard from 11 faculty members who are planning to submit NSF Faculty Early Career Development Proposals in 2016, and we have begun receiving proposal narratives to review from some of you. In addition, there are at least 6 other faculty members who have expressed interest in the program and, to our knowledge, have not yet ruled out a submission this year. Depending on the discipline, these proposals will be due to NSF July 20, 21, or 22.
Three University of Mississippi faculty members and two UM students will be presenting public policy and economics related research related to Mississippi at the “Advancing Mississippi: Research for a Better Mississippi for More Mississippians,” June 9th in Jackson, Mississippi.

This program supports emeritus faculty who maintain active research programs with undergraduates in the chemical sciences. The program provides an award of $20,000 over two years for undergraduate stipends and modest research support. Additional details are given at the Foundation Web site: www.dreyfus.org. Deadline is May 18th.
Mississippi State University will be hosting two NSF program officers who will be providing webinars and one-on-one online sessions with reserachers, April 4 and April 11, 2016. In the webinars, the program officers will share funding insight and information pertaining to strategies associated with successful proposals. For the one-on-one sessions, reserachers may 'pitch' a proposal idea to the visiting program officers and receive immediate feedback.
