Guidelines:
http://erefdn.org/index.php/grants/proposal
Amount of funding: $15,000-$500,000 (average grant is $100,000) Note: EREF will not pay indirect costs in excess of 25 percent.
Cost sharing: Because the amount of funding for research is limited, the foundation encourages submitting parties to form partnerships with other funding sources (real-dollars or in-kind services). Parties should identify the sources and amounts of external funding in their submissions.
Eligibility: Faculty with PI eligibility
Deadlines (see topics below)

    • General Solid Waste Research: Proposals for solid waste research are requested that fit within the EREF’s annual research agenda >>
      Deadlines: July 15, 2014
      and Jan. 2015 TBA
    • Sustainability Research: Submissions of scientific research proposals related to sustainable solid waste management practices are invited in the following areas: A. Waste minimization; B. Recycling; C. Waste conversion to energy, biofuels, chemicals or other useful products. This includes, but is not limited to, the technologies: [Waste-to-energy; Pyrolysis/Gasification, Oxidation, Anaerobic digestion, Composting] D. Strategies to promote diversion from landfills (e.g. separating organics, market analysis, optimized material management, logistics, etc.).
      Deadlines:July 15, 2014
      and Jan. 2015 TBA
    • Unsolicited Proposal Submission: Unsolicited proposals consist of research projects or educational initiatives that fit within the EREF’s mission statement but may not fit within the foundation’s Strategic Research Plan or annual research agenda. Any proposals for educational initiatives must be used to develop tools (e.g. software, websites, curricula, webinars, seminars, etc.) that specifically promote awareness or increase knowledge of the solid waste industry. The development of tools to be used for commercial purposes, or that will be considered proprietary, will generally not be considered unless approved by the EREF a priori.

James S. McDonnell Foundation
Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards in Studying Complex Systems

NOTE: The program, following review of applications, provides selected pre-doctoral students with “letters of intent to fund” that the student can use in negotiating with potential postdoctoral training institutions while the student is in the final phase of graduate school.
The Complex Systems program supports scholarship and research directed toward the development of theoretical and mathematical tools that can be applied to the study of complex, adaptive, nonlinear systems. It is anticipated that research funded in this program will address issues in fields such as biology, biodiversity, climate, demography, epidemiology, technological change, economic development, governance, or computation.
-Applicants should not currently have a Ph.D. and should not receive a Ph.D. on or before June 14, 2013.
-Ph.D. student applicants should have theoretical and/or experimental training in Complex Systems Science.
-Applicants should expect to complete coursework and dissertation sometime in 2013.
-Ph.D. students that have already identified a postdoctoral position and postdoctoral research mentor should not apply. Support for such positions is readily available through traditional funding mechanisms

NSF Policy: Medical Research/Disease-related goal restrictions:

"Research with disease-related goals, including work on the etiology, diagnosis or treatment of physical or mental disease, abnormality, or malfunction in human beings or animals, is normally not supported. Animal models of such conditions or the development or testing of drugs or other procedures for their treatment also are not eligible for support.
EXCEPTIONS: However, research in bioengineering, with diagnosis- or treatment-related goals, that applies engineering principles to problems in biology and medicine while advancing engineering knowledge is eligible for support. Bioengineering research to aid persons with disabilities also is eligible.
