Dear Colleague Letter: National Science Foundation and Air Force Research Laboratory
The National Science Foundation and Air Force Research Laboratory have entered into a partnership to support the training of graduate students to meet both the NSF's strategic workforce development objectives as well as the AFRL's mission to lead the discovery, development and delivery of new technologies for our air, space and cyberspace forces. NSF, via a Dear Colleague Letter, will consider supplemental funding requests to this end enabling PIs (or Co-PIs) to request up to six months of additional support for graduate students supported on active NSF grants.

The Department of Agriculture, NIFA Biology Risk Assessment Research Grants Program seeks to support the generation of new information that will assist Federal regulatory agencies in making science-based decisions about the effects of introducing into the environment genetically engineered organisms.
