Federal Funding Priorities for FY13-14

Communications regarding federal funding priorities for FY 13-14 have been received.  It is clear that individuals from UW-Green Bay seeking funding for their research activities will have the greatest opportunity for success in gaining that funding if their proposals are addressed to one of the priorities.  As such, the UWGB Office of Grants & Research (OG&R) will be focusing on identifying grant opportunities that meet one of the following federal priorities:

  • STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) – Research focused on increased learning in STEM areas, broadened participation in STEM activities, and activities focused on building the STEM workforce of the future.  The STEM priority is integrated into the mission and focus of all agencies.
  • Education – Many of the federal Agencies will be focusing funding on improving the educational experience (undergraduate and graduate levels) and increasing participation of underrepresented populations.  Those projects that also address STEM education will have the greatest opportunity for success.  Funding opportunities will recognize that instructor enhancement, especially in the undergraduate effort, is a valid outcome and that not all funds need to be directly dedicated to student outcomes.
  • Energy – High interest areas for the Department of Energy are battery development and battery energy management, grid control/management, rare earth conservation/replacement, and carbon capture/storage.  The Department of Energy is focused on providing funding for collaborative projects that focus on the transition from development to marketing and implementation of technologies.

 An important criterion for all proposals by all Agencies will be the use of evidence-based outcomes.

 In order to assist in the search for funding of research projects OG&R will submit to the Log funding priority announcements within these categories on a bi-weekly basis. Additionally, upon request faculty who are interested in submitting a proposal within these initiatives will be provided funding opportunities based upon their specific field of interests (keywords provided by potential PIs). When available, examples of funded proposals will be obtained and shared with faculty/staff to assist in their proposal development. OG&R will also provide budget templates and all other necessary forms to the PIs and assist with budget and proposal development as requested.  

 It is suggested that student research projects, especially those that will have the potential for presentation as part of Posters in the Rotunda, be focused on one of the priorities noted above.

Posters in the Rotunda 2012

A Celebration of Undergraduate Student Research

Wednesday March 7, 2012, Capitol Rotunda, Madison Wisconsin

 General Information

‘Posters in the Rotunda’ – intended to highlight the extent, quality, and value of undergraduate involvement in faculty-guided research projects. Students and faculty from all UW schools will have the opportunity to display their work for Wisconsin legislators in the Capitol Rotunda, highlighting the importance of undergraduate research and education support at the state and national levels.

For further PITR information and to view past events visit www.wisconsin.edu/posters/index.htm.

Application Information

Application deadline: 9:00 a.m. February 7, 2012.  Submit your completed application, via e-mail, to Lidia Nonn at nonnl@uwgb.edu. Selected applicants will be contacted by the PITR Coordinator. In addition, selected applicants will need to submit a completed poster by February 28, 2012.  Please Click Here for Posters in the Rotunda Application Form.   

A faculty mentor is required: Each presentation should be sponsored or co-sponsored by a UWGB faculty mentor(s); non-sponsored abstracts will not be accepted.

Presentation Information

Poster specifics: If chosen to present, the PITR Coordinator will be in contact with you.  Presenters will need to construct a self-supporting poster to be placed on an easel for viewing. Students will receive one-on-one assistance in creating their poster or adapting it for the session in Madison. Presenters will receive assistance with poster printing costs and easels will be provided.

Eligible work: An eligible presentation will report, perform, or represent the outcome of substantial work by a student or group of students. While the project may have its origin in an assignment for a class, the presentation should show it has been developed above and beyond a class requirement. It is a paper, artifact, or performance that can truly be called a creative achievement.

Abstract requirement: Each poster presentation requires an abstract. An abstract is a summary of the project and should reflect the professional format normally associated with scholarly work in its discipline (e.g., an abstract of an artistic performance may be similar to the program notes that typically accompany such a performance; science abstracts typically include background information, methods, results, and a brief discussion).

Abstract preparation: Student authors should adhere to professional submission standards when preparing abstracts and should work with their faculty mentors to ensure that their abstract is correct, complete, and that all guidelines are followed. The body of the abstract should not exceed 50 words, and can be composed and edited using standard word processing software. The final abstract, along with other information, will need to be submitted electronically via the application form.

Faculty mentor is required: Each presentation should be sponsored or co-sponsored by a UWGB faculty mentor(s); non-sponsored abstracts will not be accepted.

Interdisciplinary presentations: Interdisciplinary presentations are especially encouraged!

Travel to Madison: Travel to Madison will be provided.
