1. News Middle School Girls Learn about Engineering Careers at Camp, from GVNow, June 21, 2012 About 80 middle school girls flew the airplanes they designed and built at the Grand Valley Science, Technol‐ ogy and Engineering Preview Summer Camp conclusion event June 21. A group of cer fied pilots helped campers fly their airplanes at the Warped Wings Fly Field in Allendale. Dur‐ ing the four‐day camp, the students got a glimpse into the careers of engineers, an occupa on made up of 10 percent women. The same camp will run from June 25‐28. The program is held early enough to influ‐ ence a student’s choice of math, science, and technical courses in middle and high school. These courses help prepare them to enter and succeed in college‐level pro‐ grams. The camp is coordinated by Grand Valley’s Seymour and Esther Padnos College of En‐ gineering and Compu ng with support from Alcoa Founda on, Alcoa Howmet‐ Whitehall Opera ons, Michigan Space Grant Consor um, West Michigan Avia on Academy and SME Educa on Founda on.

2. News, Cont.  Grand Valley Teams with MSU for Research Projects, from GVNow, July 10, 2012 Two researchers at Grand Valley State University’s Annis Water Resources Ins tute will collaborate with sci‐ en sts at Michigan State University on a pair of separate projects a er receiving a grant. Bopi Biddanda, associate professor, and Ryan Thum, assistant professor, received a nearly $56,000 Water Ini a ve Research Grant Award to use in collabora on with their counterparts from MSU. Biddanda will work with MSU researchers and a Grand Valley undergraduate student to study the inner workings of the Mus‐ kegon Lake ecosystem. They will also use data from Grand Valley’s Muskegon Lake Observa on buoy to de‐ termine in near‐real me what effect storms have on the lake. They also plan to study how the lake releases gases, including the highly potent greenhouse gas nitrous ox‐ ide, during the warm summer months.“It’s very exci ng to get to collaborate with our colleagues from Michi‐ gan State,” Biddanda said. “We’re looking forward to learning more about the lake and exploring joint educa‐ onal programs between Grand Valley and MSU.” Thum’s research will focus on Eurasian watermilfoil, an introduced invasive aqua c plant that can exhibit re‐ sistance to herbicides that are currently used to get rid of the plant. Thum and his MSU colleagues will test whether unique muta ons in a gene they have iden fied causes the plant to be resistant. “We’ll be able to learn more about this problem with the combined resources of the two universi es,” Thum said. “I’m excited to see this partnership take off.”Researchers from both universi es will also use the grant period to explore joint educa onal programs, which could lead to new academic offerings for students.

A First for NEA – Grants Awarded for Arts Research, from GrantWeek, June 25, 2012    In late May the Na onal Endowment for the Arts (NEA) granted fi een awards totaling $250,000 in support for research projects, “to inves gate the value and impact of the arts in the United States.” This is a first for the agency, which historically has funded only arts projects and projects about the arts. And this is only the most recent of several new and exci ng ini a ves for NEA. Recent months, and recent GrantWeek ar cles, have reported NEA’s involvement in economics and health. NEA con nues to prove itself to be a nimble and resourceful federal agency. Among the Art Works: Research elite first round of awardees is GRC member University of Illinois at Chicago. Their $10,000 award will support“a study to examine the impact of arts exposure and ar s c expression on society, including civic engagement and social tolerance.” Other supported projects examined issues of diver‐ sity, economic impact, and behavior changes in arts par cipants. Sunil Iyengar, director of NEA’s Office of Research and Analysis, will be presen ng at GRC’s upcoming Exter‐ nal Funding Conference in August. Be sure to catch his concurrent session on Monday a ernoon to learn more about research opportuni es at NEA including the future of the Arts and Human Development Task Force.

3. Grants Resource Center News, Cont. Strategies for Seeking Funding, from GrantWeek, June 25, 2012  A June 6, 2012 essay in Inside Higher Ed by Elizabeth Simmons, dean of Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University and Na onal Science Founda on CAREER awardee, provides strategies — some tried‐and‐ true, others novel — for ge ng “what you need to get your idea off the ground.” GRC members will appreci‐ ate the encouragement this ar cle provides to faculty to coordinate their efforts with administrators. This helps avoid issues of limited submission and internal approval of proposed budgets. This coordina on should be approached as a partnership – contact should begin early and be ongoing from first proposal dra through post‐award repor ng. Briggs writes that the first thing to remember is the most elementary, but can never be emphasized enough: read all instruc ons carefully. Issues that seem trivial can render a carefully constructed proposal invalid. And of course, there is no graver mistake than missing the deadline. Simmons also recommends contac ng agen‐ cy or founda on program staff with ques ons not answered in the request for applica ons document, but cau ons against “fishing expedi ons” that indicate the caller hasn’t done his/her homework, or can appear to be lobbying for special treatment. GRC staff issue advice of this type o en, but Simmon’s unambiguous approach to these topics and her history of funding success makes her voice a welcome addi on to this conversa on. Her ar cle also offers advice about pursuing internal funding and naviga ng rela onships with department chairs and other colleagues. Simmon’s advice has the ring of truth and her essay would be a great way to start a conversa on on campus about grants that would encourage faculty members to spend their summer developing proposals.

Gates Founda on to Stay the Course, from GrantWeek, July 2, 2012  In an exclusive interview with The Chronicle of Higher Educa on Bill Gates, leader of the world’s richest foun‐ da on and Microso founder, discussed technology, grantmaking, and the future of higher educa on. The interview came on the eve of Mr. Gates's keynote speech at an event to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act, which created the na onwide system of land‐grant colleges. In both their domes c and inter‐ na onal giving programs, the Bill and Melinda Gates Founda on has been willing to fund unorthodox and overlooked ideas. In the university se ng some of the Gates Founda on grants have proven controversial. Some academics say a business mindset too focused on the ‘bo om line’ of comple on metrics dilutes the educa onal experience. Others are reluctant to embrace technology to deliver course content. Gates re‐ sponds, “So all the grants are to people in universi es, and, yes, some people in universi es disagree with other people in universi es. But if you have a sense that comple on is a good thing, then you're all eventual‐ ly going to come to a consensus that yes, we can improve.” Interviewer Jeffery Young reflects “It sounds like your argument is that you're placing a variety of bets, in a way, rather than telling universi es that this is the way that it should be done with your grant money, which is pre y powerful.” Gates agrees and confirms his willingness to work with and hear ideas from a variety of “change agents” within universi es. When asked if the Founda on’s domes c program will shi their focus away from educa on Gates unequivocally answers in the nega ve, “We want to learn, make mistakes, try new things out, find new partners. And so un l we've done something quite drama c, which in the best case would be in 10 to 20 years, we're not going to move on and do something else.”

3. Grants Resource Center News, Cont. NEH and NSF Partner to Save Languages, from GrantWeek, July 9, 2012  The Na onal Science Founda on (NSF) and Na onal Endowment for the Humani es (NEH) are accep ng pro‐ posals under their annual joint compe on for Documen ng Endangered Languages. The deadline is Sep‐ tember 15, 2012. “Made urgent by the imminent death of an es mated half of the 6,000 to 7,000 currently used languages,” the program provides about $4.1 million annually — $3.1 million from NSF and $1 million from NEH — for research projects, fellowships, and disserta on support to advance knowledge and preserve endangered hu‐ man languages. Projects may involve data management, archiving, digital recording, documen ng, and archiving of endan‐ gered languages, including the prepara on of lexicons, grammars, text samples, and databases. At least half of the available funding supports projects involving fieldwork, and there is a strong emphasis both on ex‐ ploi ng informa on technology advances and on training the next genera on of language researchers. All projects must focus on at least one of three emphasis areas: language descrip on, preserva on infrastruc‐ ture, or computa onal methods. Award amounts vary by project type and scope. NSF and NEH both provide project grants — 18 to 22 total each year — ranging from $12,000 to $150,000 for one to three years. NEH also grants fellowships — gener‐ ally 12 per year — which provide $4,200 per month for six to 12 months, and NSF awards doctoral disserta‐ on research improvement grants of up to $12,000 for project periods of up to 24 months. The program is fairly compe ve: at NEH, the funding ra o has averaged 14 percent over the last five years, with an annual average of 10 awards per 73 applica ons received. A endees at the 2012 GRC External Funding Conference will receive insight into Documen ng Endangered Languages program priori es and proposal development during an August 21, 2012 session. In the mean‐ me, review past awards, including several to GRC member ins tu ons, and direct specific ques ons to the NEH Preserva on and Access Division at preserva or NSF program director Keren Rice at ke‐

FDP Creates FCOI Templates, from GrantWeek, July 9, 2012  GRC members working to develop financial conflict of interest policies in response to the Public Health Ser‐ vice (PHS) 2011 revised requirements on promo ng objec vity in research (42 CFR, Part 50, Subpart F) may benefit from the use of two new models developed by the Federal Demonstra on Partnership. A model financial conflict of interest policy and model disclosure form are intended for sub‐recipients that are not prime awardees of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/Public Health Service funding. Us‐ ers — whether GRC members or their partners — must conduct their own review to ensure that these mod‐ els or adapted versions are compliant with PHS policy. A checklist for policy development and an FCOI tutori‐ al are available on the Na onal Ins tutes of Health website to assist ins tu ons with this process.
