Criteria for Review of Proposal Development Grants
  • Expected impact on understanding our environment
    and managing natural resources wisely
  • Degree of multidisciplinary involvement and
    breadth of faculty involvement, across UNF and
    with other institutions
  • Duration of external funding expected (preference
    one year or longer)
  • Magnitude of proposed funding
  • Level of advance information on one or more
    prospective funding sources
  • Incorporation of undergraduate and/or graduate
    students in the proposed project
  • Level of organization and likelihood that one or
    more full-scale competitive proposals will be
    submitted on a timely basis
  • As an indication of the writing skills of the
    applicant(s), requests will also be judged for
    conciseness, English usage, and overall structure.

Steps in Developing a Proposal
  • Develop the Project Idea
  • Identify Potential Funding Sources
  • Plan and Develop Proposal and Budget
  • Transmit Proposal
  • Negotiate Award Conditions with Sponsor

External Funding Sources
  • Gifts
  • Awards given with few or no conditions specified
  • Contracts
  • Procurements arrangement for one party to supply
    goods and services in return for compensation
  • Cooperative Agreements
  • Transfer of funds or services to accomplish a
    public purpose

  • A financial assistance award to support an
    organization in the conduct of research or
    program activities
  • Award from a sponsor to a recipient

Government vs. Private Funding
  • Government
  • Detailed proposal and budget
  • Federal, state and local regulations
  • Private
  • Letter of Inquiry or brief proposal
  • Fewer restrictions
  • Flexibility

Funding Search Strategies
  • Specific vs. General/Umbrella
  • Specific Keyword searches and ongoing
    monitoring that target your specific funding
  • General or umbrella Searches and monitoring for
    larger scale funding programs that can include or
    that overlap your funding interest

Funding Search Strategies
  • Current/Ongoing Funding vs. Monitoring
  • Current/Ongoing Funding Searches Primarily
    online or database searches using appropriate
    keywords or parameters DSRT support or
  • Monitoring Upcoming Funding Use of existing
    services and appropriate set of keywords to
    obtain regular announcements and updates re
    funding sources of interest to you
  • Screening material that comes your way

General / Umbrella Funding
  • Unsolicited proposals
  • Submitted by PI at their own initiative
  • Not in response to formal request
  • Responsive to a general publicized statement of

Which agencies?
  • Most of thembut
  • Still have designated forms
  • Still have specific guidelines/format
  • Still have deadlines
  • So still should utilize DSRT resources!
  • Focus on
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • National Science Foundation (NSF)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • NIHs Funding (http//www.nih.gov/about)
  • 27,882,512,000 in Congressional Appropriations
  • 80 funds distributed in research grants
  • FY 06 Presidents Budget 3.6 billion
  • Approximately 9,463 grants at 350,000 - 380,000
  • 27 Centers and Institutes

  • Complementary and Alternative Medicine

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • R Series (research grants)
  • R01 Research Project Grant Program

  • R29 First Independent Research Support
    Transition (FIRST) Award

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • R01 Research Project Grant Program
  • New and established investigators
  • Supports health-related research and development
  • Proposal should be a good idea related to the
    stated program interests of an Institute or
    Center based on descriptions of their programs
  • Talk to the Centers and Institutes! Go to Web
  • http//grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/r01.htm

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • R03 Small Grant Program
  • New investigators
  • Examples of the types of projects
  • Pilot or feasibility studies
  • Secondary analysis of existing data
  • Small, self-contained research projects
  • Development of research methodology
  • Development of new research technology
  • http//grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/r03.htm

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant

    predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs)
  • Individual and collaborative research projects
  • Purchase of shared-use research instrumentation
  • Research Opportunity Awards

National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI)
  • The overriding purpose of RUI is the support of
    faculty research which maintains faculty members
    intellectual vibrancy in the classroom and
    research community
  • Support high-quality research by faculty members
    at PUIs
  • Strengthen the research environment in academic
    departments that are oriented primarily toward
    undergraduate instruction
  • Promote the integration of research and education

National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI)
  • Principal difference between RUI proposals and
    regular NSF proposals is the additional
    requirement that RUI proposals must include an
    RUI impact statement that describes the expected
    effects of the proposed research on the research
    and educational environment of the institution.

National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
  • Objectives
  • Supports active research participation by
    undergraduate students in any of the areas of
    research funded by NSF
  • Mechanisms
  • REU Sites based on independent proposals to
    initiate and conduct projects that engage a
    number of students in research
  • REU Supplements requested for ongoing
    NSF-funded research projects or may be included
    as a component of proposals for new or renewal
    NSF grants or cooperative agreements
  • All students must be US citizens

  • SPIN provides up-to-date information on current
    national and international government and private
    funding sources
  • GENIUS a web-based database containing profiles
    of scholars and researchers at leading
    universities and research institutions through
    the world. GENIUS stores all of an individuals
    CV information
  • SMARTS an automated daily alerts system that
    notifies investigators of relevant new programs
    that match their GENIUS profiles
