For most Board of Regents (BoR) programs, the indirect cost is limited to 25% of salary and fringe benefits. BoR specific templates for one year and up to three year proposals have been posted to the Proposal Development page of the Office of Research website. Indirect cost is calculated using BoR’s limit also calculated is UNO’s waived indirect cost. If the BoR program does not restrict the indirect cost rate, continue to use the regular budget templates. Contact your Research Administrator if you have questions.

Louisiana Sea Grant College Program seeks Statements of Interest for its next funding cycle, February 1, 2016 – January 31, 2018. Research projects within Louisiana coasts focused in three areas will be considered: 1) Healthy Coastal Ecosystems; 2) Resilient Communities and Economies; and 3) Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture. Statements of Interest are due February 6, 2015 at 5:00 PM CST. Please see the message below for full details.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a solicitation from the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program for Statements of Interest proposing two-year coastal research projects.  The Statement of Interest serves as a project pre-proposal that identifies a topic relevant to coastal and marine needs in Louisiana and the nation. It describes both the scope of the need, problem, or opportunity and how the results achieved would contribute to development, conservation, or utilization of coastal and marine resources. Statements allow for review of relevancy to Louisiana Sea Grant’s research priorities for this opportunity, as well as concepts, rationale, general approach, and expected outcomes and impacts before faculty must commit to providing a narrative of detailed methodology, literature review, and other requirements of a full proposal.

Research priority focus areas for this request for proposals (RFP) are: 1) Healthy Coastal Ecosystems and Habitats, 2) Resilient Communities and Economies, and 3) Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture. A complete explanation of these research priorities, as well as other pertinent information related to Statement of Interest preparation, submission, and review is included in the RFP at www.laseagrant.org/research/rfp/funding-proposal-info/

Louisiana Sea Grant will consider Statements of Interest for this opportunity with maximum budgets of $80,000/year for either one or two year projects.  Statements of Interest must be submitted to Ms. Katie Lea ( Room 238 Sea Grant Building, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 or klea@lsu.edu ) on or before 5:00 PM (CST) on February 6, 2015, without exception.

U.S. Department of Energy Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship Program (MLEF)

The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) Program provides students with an opportunity to gain and develop research skills with the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy for 10 weeks over the summer. For 20 years, this program has increased awareness of DOE research opportunities to students pursuing STEM degrees (science, technology, engineering and math). The goal of the program is to improve opportunities for women and minority students in these fields, however all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. Stipends start at $600 per week and eligible Fellows will receive an additional travel and housing allowance. For more information, visit http://orise.orau.gov/mlef/.

Out of this world!

The University of New Orleans welcomed approximately 150 students from New Orleans area schools to campus on Thursday, to participate in Space Day 2014. The inaugural event was designed to introduce youngsters to the joys and challenges – and especially the important – of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) said Karen Thomas, associate dean of STEM outreach, recruitment, and retention in the College of Sciences.

Seventh and 8th graders from St. Augustine, Archbishop Rummel, Edward Hynes, Holy Cross, and Ursuline, came to UNO to enjoy hands-on activities based on a theme of another dimension: Space.

"It was a nice day," said Travis Mumphrey, 14, of Rummel. "We did a lot of activities. The space launch was one of my favorites."

For months, students, faculty and staff met weekly with representatives from the Boeing Company, NASA, Jacobs Technology and the National Center for Advanced Manufacturing (NCAM) to design the day focused on raising interest in STEM Studies, Thomas said. The Colleges of Science and Engineering and the University's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs coordinated the University's responsibilities. The results were out of this world.
