W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program Concept Paper Fall 2022

8/25/2022 UPDATE Concept Papers in Medical Sciences WILL BE accepted in fall 2022 (through the "apply" link below). UA may submit four concept papers in Physical Sciences and Engineering and four concept papers in Medical Sciences in this cycle. The Undergraduate Education program is currently not accepting concept papers. The W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program uses a three-step process. The first step is a Concept paper. The next steps are by the foundation’s invitation. UArizona review criteria reflect previous interactions with the W.M. Keck Foundation. Proposals should focus on basic, fundamental science with broad applications. The proposed work should show a significant leap forward rather than an extension of existing work. To be considered by Keck, applicants must have a statement from a federal program officer expressing that the project is not a good fit due to risk (rather than technical or theoretical fit) or a decline from a federal program where the summary statement or individual reviews highlight the incredible novelty, but the high-risk nature that makes it difficult to fund at the federal level.

NSF 18-513: 2023 Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program: Instrument Acquisition or Development

UArizona may submit three total proposals, with no more than two submissions in Track 1 and no more than one submission in Track 2. RDS is holding the 2022-23 internal competition for the MRI program based on the existing solicitation and announced deadlines. Should NSF issue a new solicitation or make other program changes, our internal program and timeline will be adjusted and the new internal requirements will be announced on the Limited Submissions Table and in the Limited Submissions Newsletter. The Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education and not-for-profit scientific/engineering research organizations. An MRI award supports the acquisition or development of a multi-user research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.

2023 Moore Inventor Fellowships

The Foundation aims to support inventions at an early stage that could lead to proof-of-concept work on an invention or advance an existing prototype that tackles an important problem. They seek innovations with the promise of making a long-lasting impact by addressing underlying problems in their field, but a clear path toward commercialization is not a requirement. They are not interested in supporting projects that are already at a stage where significant venture capital is available. Candidates must be faculty, research scientists, postdocs or other full-time staff who can receive funding through their institutions. Candidates must be no more than 10 years past receiving the terminal advanced degree in their field (M.S., Ph.D. or M.D.).

2022 US Department of State Limited Submission Opportunities

The US Department of State (DOS) issues a range of funding opportunities, and some but not all are limited submissions. Historically RDS has received very few responses to these opportunities. RDS will not be posting each opportunity individually. We will consider these DOS opportunities to be "Open" under the UArizona Limited Submission Process unless they are specifically designated otherwise on the Limited Submissions Table. The application slot(s) for Department of State limited submissions will be filled on a rolling basis, so please request the LS ticket as soon as possible. For any questions or concerns, please contact RDS at limitedsubmissions@email.arizona.edu

UArizona LIMITED SUBMISSIONS PROCESS
Before a PI/Team can submit a proposal to an external sponsor for a limited submission opportunity they must receive the "Ticket" to be authorized to proceed.  Sponsored Projects and Contracting Services (SPCS) and campus research administrators partner with RDS to ensure UA is not disqualified from review by a funder because of an unauthorized submission.  
See the RDS Limited Submissions Table for all UPCOMING limited submissions and deadlines and to review or download the UA Limited Submission process. Pre-proposals for all limited submissions are through UA Competition Space.
An OPEN designation means that the internal deadline has passed without any pre-proposals submitted for review. Once a program is designated as OPEN, the first proposal that RDS receives will be accepted as the institutional submission. If the sponsor allows more than one proposal, applicants will be accepted for OPEN programs in the order in which RDS receives them. Contact Research Development Services for more information.
The UArizona Limited Submissions Newsletter is emailed to subscribers every Thursday unless otherwise announced on the RDS Limited Submissions Table. To view event announcements, external and internal funding opportunities, awards, and other research-related content please keep an eye on The Current.
