External Funding Availabilities
This page does not explain internal OSU funding availabilities, rather the page is for external funding opportunities. This page will be updated with information regarding funding opportunities from Federal agencies, State agencies, industry, foundations, and so on. Please let us know if you hear-of or know-of a great opportunity for funding related to climate, water, or carbon research and related policy issues.

OceanSat 2 and GOSAT opportunities (June 1, 2008)
The remainder of this is for GOSAT:
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), National Institute for
Environmental Studies (NIES) and Ministry of the Environment (MOE)
("Three Parties") started Greenhouse gases Observation SATellite
(GOSAT) Project some years ago.
GOSAT project is contributing to GEOSS 10-Year Implementation Plan
through GEOSS tasks: CL-06-02 "Key Climate Data from Satellite
Systems", DA-07-03 "Virtual Constellations", and EC-06-01 "Integrated
Global Carbon Observation (IGCO) ."
While the time of the launch of GOSAT is approaching in early 2009,
the Three Parties issued a Research Announcement (RA) of GOSAT on
April 7,2008. This RA solicits a proposal for calibration, processing
algorithm, validation, carbon balance estimation and application
using GOSAT data. If you are interested in it, please take time to
visit following site:
We would be grateful if you could send us your proposal by the
end of coming June.
With kind regards,

Subject: ROSES-08 Amendment 4: Final text and due dates for
Opportunities in SMD Education and Public Outreach
ROSES-08 Amendment 4: Final text and due dates for Opportunities in
SMD Education and Public Outreach
This amendment replaces the draft text in Appendix E.5 entitled
"Opportunities in Science Mission Directorate Education and Public
Outreach" with the final text. This solicitation is for
investigations or projects utilizing SMD content supporting NASA
education and public outreach objectives. It solicits proposals that
address substantial and substantive educational needs or problems and
offer solutions of significant impact. Projects are expected to be
relevant to the NASA SMD Education portfolio. This relevance should
be clearly demonstrated in the proposal.
Given the many accomplishments in NASA Earth and space science
education and public outreach in recent years, the program places
particular emphasis on systemic and/or sustainable educational impact
from SMD investments. Projects must have a clear linkage to the needs
of the formal or informal educational systems.
Notices of Intent to propose (NOIs) are due May 15, 2008, and
proposals are due July 15, 2008.
On or about April 11, 2008, this Amendment to the NASA Research
Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences
(ROSES) 2008" (NNH08ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research
opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select
"Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH08ZDA001N").

The following is a specific example within the CSREES program:
the Availability of Grant Funds and Requests Applications for the Higher
Education Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) Grants
NEW in 2008: Changes have been made when compared with the FY 2007 MSP announcement. The changes enhance the potential for attaining program goals through use of six (6) Program Areas of Emphasis. Students pursuing undergraduate level training in the food and agricultural sciences and/or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degrees will be aligned with the emerging workforce needs. Ultimately, the announcement seeks to allow applicants to plan for the impact of the proposed D.V.M./baccalaureate training program on development of scientific expertise and functional competence in food and agricultural sciences. Included are award categories that take account of a training option that involves multi-institutional collaboration to enhance the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and/or baccalaureate degree training programs addressing USDA REE priority areas of bioenergy, agrosecurity; specialty crops; and environmental sustainability to find solutions for real world issues relating to water, energy, land use management and agricultural biotechnology.

Interdisciplinary Climate Research Symposium
2 - 9 November 2008
Saguaro Lake Ranch, AZ
Application Deadline: 30 April 2008
Participation limited to thirty-four early career scholars
Airfare and on-site expenses will be defrayed
<http://www.disccrs.org/> The Dissertations Initiative for the Advancement of Climate Change Research (DISCCRS, pronounced discourse), connects natural and social scientists engaged in research related to climate change, impacts and solutions. The goal is to broaden perspectives and establish a collegial peer network to address climate challenges at the interface of science and society. See report from last symposium, and list of participants at http://www.disccrs.org/reports/DISCCRS_III_Symposium_Report.pdf <http://www.disccrs.org/reports/DISCCRS_III_Symposium_Report.pdf>
During the week of DISCCRS IV -- which will be held in the Tonto National Forest outside Phoenix, Arizona -- participants will provide oral and poster presentations in plenary format, hone interdisciplinary communication and team skills, and discuss emerging research, societal and professional issues with each other and with established researchers invited to serve as mentors.
Participation will be limited to thirty-four early career scholars identified by an interdisciplinary committee of research scientists based on review of submitted applications.
Eligibility: Ph.D. requirements completed April 1, 2006 - March 31, 2008. We encourage applicants from the natural and social sciences, economics, mathematics, engineering, or any other field so long as the research focus relates to climate change, its impacts or solutions. Selection will favor those with interdisciplinary, collaborative interests. While the emphasis is on the

Subject: Re: CWC Meeting Monday 2:30 - 4:00 Page Hall room 130
One opportunity I think the CWC should consider
is the NSF Cyber Discovery and Innovation program:
The deadline for this year has passed, but next year
they will include large team proposals for the first time.
I think geophysics has lots of problems that can be
addressed with novel data management/signal processing
type things, and CWC is an excellent way to arrange such
a thing. Be glad to discuss further.
