Tuesday, March 12, 2024, Webinar
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 24-1) has been issued. The new PAPPG will be effective for proposals submitted or due on or after May 20, 2024. You are encouraged to review the by-chapter Summary of Changes provided in the PAPPG.

Funding opportunities

You can also view a full, filterable list of funding opportunities for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.

Cancer Research Institute
Deadline:
Three tracks of postdoctoral fellowships providing career development, training and diversity building in immunology and immuno-informatics.
OSU Research Office
Deadline:
Any faculty, staff or student can submit a 1-page Concept Paper with ideas for how OSU can incorporate, integrate and deploy Artificial Intelligence (AI) to achieve the vision outlined below in four broad AI domains: AI Education; AI Knowledge, AI Economy and Powered by AI.
Human Frontier Science Program
Deadline:
Letter of Intent. Research grants are provided for teams of scientists from different countries who wish to combine their expertise in innovative approaches to questions that could not be answered by individual laboratories. Preliminary results are not required.
11th Hour Racing
Deadline:
Strong consideration will be given to projects that involve collaborations and stakeholder engagement, model best practices, can demonstrate measurable outcomes in a one-year timeframe, and share successes broadly. For anything we fund, particularly demonstration projects or place-based work, we prefer opportunities for broader impact through replicating or scaling.
Breast Cancer Alliance
Deadline:
Limited submission, contact research office before applying. Letter of intent due for exceptional project grants and young investigator grants.
Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation
Deadline:
The goal of this initiative is to engage and support the careers of promising Black/African American clinical and/or laboratory investigators in the field of multiple myeloma research. The Scholars Program will support the awardee from post-doctoral training to first faculty-track position.
Daiichi Sankyo
Deadline:
We are looking for bifunctional small molecules that can inhibit target protein function through protein-protein interactions (PPI). We are also looking for a methodology for rationally designing such bifunctional compounds based on protein structural information. (It does not matter whether the target interaction is intracellular or extracellular.)
Daiichi Sankyo
Deadline:
We are seeking novel chemical derivatives (small molecules or peptides) that can be internalized into a wide range of PDAC cells selectively via unique mechanism of action. We are also interested in screening systems to identify our desired chemical products.
American Cancer Society
Deadline:
As the nation's largest private, not-for-profit source of funds for scientists studying cancer, the American Cancer Society (ACS) remains committed to funding basic, translational, clinical, and cancer control research now and in the future - as much as we are able given our available financial resources.
Oregon Space Grant Consortium
Deadline:
The program is open to graduate students enrolled full-time at an OSGC member institution and are currently working on a faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or space science/aerospace relevance and aligns with the agency’s top priorities.
The Peanut Institute
Deadline:
The Peanut Institute Foundation (TPIF) is a non-profit entity that funds peanut nutrition research. We are currently requesting proposals that increase our understanding of how the consumption of peanuts, peanut butter, and other peanut products affects human health.
National Science Foundation
Deadline:
Developmental Sciences supports basic research that increases our understanding of perceptual, cognitive, linguistic, social, cultural, and biological processes related to human development across the lifespan.
National Science Foundation
Deadline:
The objective of the PACSP Program is to support conservation research that investigates organismal biology, ecology, and/or evolution and is designed to contribute to the development and implementation of evidence-based activities and/or technology solutions to advance biodiversity conservation.

Rolling opportunities

Faculty funding opportunities with no set deadline. You can also view a full, filterable list of funding opportunities for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.

Various
This site includes postings for paid jobs, Postdoctoral Fellowships, etc from all over the country.
National Science Foundation
NSF seeks to catalyze research that leverages the full diversity and complexity of life to focus attention on the discovery of molecular and evolutionary mechanisms that have permitted organisms, over millions of years of evolution, to innovate and thrive, often in hostile and changing environments.
Graduate School
Award amounts vary based upon hardship and need but will typically not exceed $1500 per student per academic year.
OSU Departmental Opportunity
The Mehl Lab in the Biochemistry & Biophysics Department at Oregon State University is looking for multiple creative and ambitious postdocs who are interested in expanding our recent developments in genetic code expansion, protein engineering, structural biology and studies on protein post-translational modifications.
OSU Graduate School
The Graduate School offers the Scholarly Presentation Award to provide graduate students with financial support to assist with certain costs associated with presenting their scholarly work at academic conferences and meetings.
National Institute on Aging
This FOA promote diversity in the translational research workforce for Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD).
U.S. Department of Defense
CCDC-SC is offering a novel research opportunity focusing to treat nanoparticles as giant atoms and construct new "molecules" out of them. The goal of this project is to translate this atomic level reality to nanoparticles by viewing them as atoms and generating nanoparticle "molecules" that will show new optical, electronic, mechanical, and catalytic properties.
OSU Graduate School
The Professional Development Award from the Graduate School reimburses eligible students up to $250 to pay for training, conference fees, webinars, and more.
