The DOE Phase 0 Assistance program is now open to serve DOE SBIR/STTR FY 2020 Phase I Release 1 grant applicants. Phase 0 is aimed at helping eligible small businesses successfully apply for DOE SBIR/STTR Phase I funding. Eligibility for assistance is limited to first time applicants to the DOE SBIR/STTR programs and we are particularly interested in serving groups that are under-represented: women-owned small businesses, socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses, and small businesses from under-represented states. The overall goal of the DOE Phase 0 program is to increase the number of responsive, high quality proposals submitted to the DOE from all first-time DOE SBIR/STTR applicants. Please visit the DOE Phase 0 web site at www.dawnbreaker.com/doephase0/ for more information and to apply for FY 2020 Phase I Release 1 assistance.
The National Geographic Society needs journalists, photographers, filmmakers, cartographers, data visualizers, and socially-connected storytellers who can show us what we might lose if tropical rainforests are not protected and highlight potential solutions that have the power to create real, sustainable improvements.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation seeks to support fundamental research that addresses issues of rules, norms and governance of the internet and digital platforms. Recent research, policy debates and public controversies have highlighted the absence of uniform consensus on the norms, rights and responsibilities that should govern digital services, in particular social media. We wish to fund scholarly inquiry and novel approaches that will strengthen our democracy as the digital age progresses. We seek to support efforts that advance research – both theoretical and empirical – on topics related to governance and the rights and responsibilities of individuals, commercial interests, non-governmental organizations and government in the digital era.
Congratulations to Elise Lockwood and her colleagues in EECS and Education on receiving a $141,800 gift award from Google to study "Integrating CS Education into Teacher Education and K-12 Mathematics".
In this 12-week program, early-career individuals are placed in different divisions within the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, DC—including the Gulf Research Program. Fellows gain hands-on experience in science and technology policy while learning about the role scientists and engineers play in advising the nation.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has designated the National Institutes of Health’s SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) as an NSF-approved format for submission of biographical sketch(es) and is encouraging its use to prepare a biographical sketch for inclusion in proposals to NSF.
To ensure that all OSU units follow consistent procedures associated with university-sponsored international travel, the university has enacted a new international travel policy that is now in effect and will provide travelers with many benefits. This policy requires faculty, staff, students and others traveling internationally on behalf of the university to enter their itineraries in OSU’s International Travel Registry prior to departure.
At the GSSC, students relax or study and can reserve rooms for study groups or social events. Drop-ins and appointments start in week 2 of each term, including statistics counsulting, Institutional Review Board consulting, Library research consulting and grad writing help.

Dates of interest
The 5th Student Workshop on International Marine and Coastal Management in the Gulf of Mexico ("SWIMM 2020") will take place from January 8-17, 2020 in coastal Yucatán and Campeche, Mexico (Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche, and Mérida). The program brings together graduate students from the United States, Mexico, and Cuba for week-long workshops involving peer-to-peer exchanges, shared learning, and intensive interactions with scientists, managers, and practitioners. The focus of SWIMM 2020 will be on the preliminary development of indicators for a Report Card for Coastal Campeche. These indicators will be used to assess the health of environmental and socio-economic systems along the coast and to monitor positive and negative changes over time.
Join us for the OMSI 2020 Spring Training Information session to learn about the OSU-OMSI Science Communication Fellows Program. OMSI Science Communication Fellows are STEM professionals, including faculty, graduate students, technicians, or other individuals in science, health, engineering, or technology related positions. Fellows participate in specialized communication training, develop a hands-on demonstration about their work, and join OMSI in helping public audiences engage with science in meaningful and relevant ways.

The Graduate School invites nominations for the Graduate Student Travel Award. The travel funds from this award are designed to provide graduate students with financial support to cover part of the cost associated with attending and presenting their scholarly achievements at prestigious national/international conferences. Directors of graduate programs (department chairs/heads, program directors) may submit one application per deadline per graduate program. Please note, due to the nomination processes for Graduate School awards, your department may have internal deadlines/procedures for nomination. Please check with your department prior to submitting any nominations on behalf of your department/students.
Demystify the grants application and review process. Whether you are an administrator, early stage investigator, reseacher, or graduate student there is something to learn for everyone.
Applications are open for the Applied Sciences 2020 Travel Award for postdoctoral fellows. The award will support participation at a scientific conference in 2020. Fields include Earth Sciences and Geography, Energy, Environmental and Sustainable Science and Technology, Nanotechnology and Applied Nanosciences, Optics and Lasers.
