Water Sustainability and Climate (WSC)
Deadline: October 19, 2011
The goal of the Water Sustainability and Climate (WSC) solicitation is to understand and predict the interactions between the water system and climate change, land use (including agriculture, managed forest and rangeland systems), the built environment, and ecosystem function and services through place-based research and integrative models. Studies of the water system using models and/or observations at specific sites singly or in combination that allow for spatial and temporal extrapolation to other regions

Geography and Spatial Sciences (GSS)
Deadline: January 15, 2012, January 15, Annually Thereafter
The goals of the NSF Geography and Spatial Sciences (GSS) Program are:
- To promote the development and use of scientific methods and tools for geographic research

Advances in Biological Informatics (ABI)
Deadline: July 12, 2011 - Second Tuesday in July, Annually Thereafter
The ABI program accepts two major types of proposals: Innovation awards that seek to pioneer new approaches to the application of informatics to biological problems and Development awards that seek to provide robust cyberinfrastructure that will enable transformative biological research.

High-End Computing University Research Activity (HECURA)
Deadline: N/A
Accordingly, in 2009, the High-End Computing University Research Activity (HECURA) program invites research and education proposals in the areas of
metadata research;
access methods;
data management systems;

Instrument Development for Biological Research (IDBR)

Deadline: July 29, 2011, Last Friday in July, Annually Thereafter
supports the development of instrumentation that addresses demonstrated needs in biological research, in areas supported by NSF Biology programs (see http://www.nsf.gov/bio).

Long Term Research in Environmental Biology (LTREB)
Deadline: January 13, 2012 - January 13, Annually Thereafter
proposals that generate extended time series of biological and environmental data to address ecological and evolutionary processes and resolve important issues in organismal and environmental biology. Researchers must have collected at least six years of previous data to qualify for funding, and these data must motivate the proposed research.

Partnerships for Enhancing Expertise in Taxonomy (PEET)
Deadline: Current but no Longer Receiving Proposals
enhance taxonomic research and help prepare future generations of experts. Through this Special Biennial Competition in Systematic Biology, NSF will support competitively reviewed projects that target groups of poorly known organisms for modern monographic research.

Software Development for Cyberinfrastructure (SDCI)
Deadline: N/A
develop and deploy a set of reusable and expandable software components and systems that benefit a broad set of science and engineering applications.

Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2)
Deadline: July 18, 2011
intent is to foster a pervasive cyberinfrastructure to help researchers address problems of unprecedented scale, complexity, resolution, and accuracy by integrating computation, data, networking, observations and experiments in novel ways.

Strategic Technologies for CyberInfrastructure (STCI)
Deadline: Oct. 3-17, 2011; Feb. 1-15, 2012
to foster the development of a scalable, comprehensive, secure and sustainable cyberinfrastructure that supports potentially transformative research in science and engineering.

Sustainable Digital Data Preservation and Access Network Partners (DataNet)
Deadline: n/a
This solicitation addresses that challenge by creating a set of exemplar national and global data research infrastructure organizations (dubbed DataNet Partners) that provide unique opportunities to communities of researchers to advance science and/or engineering research and learning.

Funding Opportunities for Field Stations

Took a look as some of the funding opportunities the Biological Station might qualify for. This is will be an ongoing list:

Funding Opportunity Comments
Improvements in Facilities, Communications, and Equipment at Biological Field Stations and Marine Laboratories (FSML) NSF, Harvard Forest just got one.
Improvements to Biological Research Collections (BRC) We can digitize and integrate our collections with others.
Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI-R²)
Carbon and Water in the Earth System
