Message 2: NSF of USA POWRE Grants for Women/ Deadline Dec. 9

Date: Wed, 20 Oct 1999 17:51:23 -0400
From: Ball, Catherine <cballnsf.gov>
Subject: NSF of USA POWRE Grants for Women/ Deadline Dec. 9

Dear Colleagues at US Institutions,

The National Science Foundation has a special grant program for women
Ph.D.s at US institutions called POWRE (Professional Opportunities for
Women in Research and Education). The application deadline is December
9th, and this is the final year of this program. There have not been
many applications from women linguists in the past, and I would like
to encourage participation before this program comes to an end. The
program announcement can be found at
http://www.nsf.gov/home/crssprgm/powre/guide.htm

Briefly, POWRE is a 'cross-cutting' program that is supported in every
NSF Directorate, including Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences
(the home of Linguistics). The POWRE program represents funding
available to our community beyond the program budget for Linguistics
- up to $75,000 for 12-18 months. Here is a snippet from the program
announcement: "POWRE awards are designed to provide a one-time input
of funds at a critical stage in the Principal Investigator's career, a
means by which she can take advantage of an opportunity that will
contribute to a significant, identifiable advance in her career
path. POWRE awards are not intended to provide funds to establish a
laboratory. New investigators in academia are encouraged to consider
the CAREER program and the regular research and education disciplinary
programs as their primary source of initial funding."

I have put a POWRE awards search on my webpage, so that you can see what
kinds of awards have been made in our directorate: at
http://www.georgetown.edu/cball/cball.html 

Awards to linguists include #18, 21, and 25 in the list. To submit a
proposal, please be sure to refer to the latest copy of the NSF Grant
Proposal Guide, at
http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2000/nsf002/

Best wishes, -- Cathy Ball
