Grant Resource Center Funding Database
One of the hallmarks of the Grants Resource Center is its funding database, GrantSearch, designed exclusively for GRC member campuses. It was developed to make finding federal and private foundation grant information accessible and convenient by allowing the user to search the funding opportunity database using five criteria: academic subject, activity, funding sponsor, deadline month, and text.

 

External Funding Opportunities

  • LIMITED SUBMISSION - EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Program: Track-2 Focused EPSCoR Collaborations (RII Track-2 FEC)New York National Science Foundation (NSF) - Office of Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR)
    Due Date: Internal NOIs 10/19/2018; Letter Intent 11/26/2018; Full Proposal 1/25/2019

     

    This is a LIMITED SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITY (i.e. only one application from WSU will be accepted) – If interested in applying, please notify proposals@wichita.edu of your intent to submit a Letter of Intent no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 19, 2018.  If more than one PI expresses interest, an internal competition will be help to determine which PI will ultimately be selected to propose. 

    The Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is designed to fulfill the mandate of the National Science Foundation (NSF) to promote scientific progress nationwide. A jurisdiction is eligible to participate in EPSCoR programs if its level of NSF research support is equal to or less than 0.75 percent of the total NSF research and related activities budget for the most recent three-year period. Through this program, NSF establishes partnerships with government, higher education, and industry that are designed to effect sustainable improvements in a jurisdiction's research infrastructure, Research and Development (R&D) capacity, and hence, its R&D competitiveness.  RII Track-2 FEC builds interjurisdictional collaborative teams of EPSCoR investigators in scientific focus areas consistent with NSF priorities. Projects are investigator-driven and must include researchers from at least two RII- eligible jurisdictions with complementary expertise and resources necessary to tackle those projects, which neither party could address as well or rapidly alone. The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research and education activities should seek to broaden participation through the strategic inclusion and integration of different types of individuals, institutions, and sectors throughout the project. Proposals must describe a comprehensive and integrated vision to drive discovery and build sustainable STEM capacity that exemplifies diversity of all types (individual, institutional, geographic, and disciplinary). The development of diverse early-career faculty is a critical component of this sustainable STEM capacity. For FY 2019, RII Track-2 FEC proposals are invited on a single topic: "Harnessing the Data Revolution to solve problems of national importance.”  NSF 18-589 Only one RII Track-2 FEC proposal may be submitted in response to this solicitation by an organization in a RII-eligible jurisdiction. Investigators cannot be PI or co-PI on more than one proposal.
