The “Grants for Higher Education” Index covers extensive government, private foundation, and corporate grants, which can be key in putting your institution at the forefront of new programs. Looking for leadership where leadership is created, grants for higher education provide an incentive to colleges and universities to be in step with the ever-changing fields of science and technology. Advance your college or university’s reputation for innovation by staying on top of the most current funding opportunities for cyber service education, undergraduate scholarships for advanced technological education, as well as science laboratory, technology center and technology studies programs. The “Grants for Higher Education” Index represents funding for advanced learning and curriculum programs. Features of the Index include grants gearedS to funding curriculums in computer security, technology education, and teacher preparation for the use of technology in the classroom. Funding is also available for information or medical information system scholarships, and program development. The Index is ideal for college development/grants officers, as well as for faculty/staff in mathematics, computer or information sciences, management information systems, technology integration, and engineering disciplines

Environmental Implications of Emerging Technologies

Deadline: March Annually

The Environmental Implications of Emerging Technologies program
provides support to develop and test the environmental effects of new technologies. Fundamental and basic research is sought to establish and understand outcomes as a result of the implementation of new technologies such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, and information technology. The program also supports research on the development and refinement of sensors and sensor network technologies that can be used to measure a wide variety of physical, chemical, and biological properties of interest in characterizing, monitoring, and understanding environmental impacts.

The average annual award size for the program is $80,000. Small
equipment proposals up to $100,000 will also be considered and may be submitted during these windows.
