Upcoming Limited Submission Grant Funding Opportunities

To request a review and approval for a limited submission grant proposal please contact OSRP Director Betsy Jinks. 

Boettcher Foundation Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Grants 

White Paper Proposal Deadline: February 3, 2020, for MSU Denver Internal Review

Full Proposal Deadline: March 26, 2020

Funding Level: $235,000 for 3-year period

Limit: Your proposal will go through an internal selection process. One winner will be submitted.

Any early career investigator researching topics that relate to human health may apply for this grant opportunity through MSU Denver’s Office of Sponsored Research & Programs (OSRP). The Webb-Waring program aims to help early career investigators establish their research to become competitive for major awards and federal funding. If chosen as a Boettcher Investigator, you will be awarded $235,000 over a 3 year period to fund your research. Your proposal will go through an internal selection process. The winner of that process will be submitted to the Boettcher Foundation. White Paper Proposals are due to OSRP by February 3, 2020, for internal selection to proceed to full application consideration. OSRP and CFR will work with the finalist for the full proposal due on March 26, 2020. Learn more here or contact Betsy Jinks, Director of the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs.



National Institutes of Health (NIH) Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES)

Deadline: February 28, 2020.

Funding range: R01: Up to $500,000 for 3-5 years.

Limit: Only one application per School or College within a University will be accepted.

The Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award is intended to identify the most talented Early Stage Investigators (ESIs) who intend to make a long-term commitment to research in the Environmental Health Sciences and assist them in launching an innovative research program focused on the understanding of environmental exposure effects on people’s health.

National Science Foundation (NSF) Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM)

Deadline: March 25, 2020.

Funding range: $650,000 - $1 million for 5 year program.

Limit: An Institution may submit one proposal (either as a single institution or as subawardee or a member of a Collaborative Research
project) from each constituent school or college that awards degrees in an S-STEM eligible discipline.

The S-STEM program provides Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) with funds for scholarships to encourage and enable low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need to enter the workforce or graduate study following completion of associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degrees in S-STEM eligible disciplines. Recognizing that scholarships alone cannot address low retention and graduation rates in STEM, the program also supports the implementation and testing of existing effective evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities (e.g., evidence-based practices; professional and workforce development activities) featuring: (1) close involvement of faculty in S-STEM eligible disciplines, (2) student mentoring, (3) provisions of academic and student support, (4) and adaptation of existing high-quality evidence-based practices.

National Science Foundation (NSF) Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic Serving Institutions (IUSE: HSI)

Deadline: September 16, 2020.

Funding range: Track 1: Up to $2.5 million for a 5 year program.

Limit: For Track 1 (Building Capacity), an institution can submit only one proposal.

Projects supported by the HSI Program are expected to be evidence-based as well as generate new knowledge about how to enhance
undergraduate STEM education to increase retention and graduation rates of undergraduate students pursuing degrees in STEM fields
at HSIs. The HSI Program is interested in the successful advancement of undergraduates at HSIs through critical transitions, including
the transition from lower-division to upper-division coursework. The HSI Program also encourages projects that develop mutually
beneficial cross-sector partnerships (e.g., industry-academic partnerships) that enhance STEM teaching and learning, and workforce
development. Projects may also develop teaching and learning strategies and models in STEM. In addition, the HSI Program seeks to
build capacity to enhance undergraduate STEM education at HSIs that typically do not receive high levels of NSF grant funding. HSI
Program proposals should include a research plan, a project evaluation plan, and a dissemination plan.
