NSF is beginning its move to 4201 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22230, with the new mailing address taking effect 10/25/93. CISE will make the move on 11/19/93. [NSF Bulletin, grants, 9/1/93.]

Nominations of outstanding young scientists, mathematicians, or engineers for the 19th Alan T. Waterman Award are due by 12/31/93. Contact Mrs. Susan Fannoney, National Science Board, (202) 357-7512.

New files at NSF include a brochure for the NSF NATO Postdoctoral Fellowship in Science & Engineering 1993-1994 (NSF 93-129) and a program guideline on Research on Digital Libraries (NSF 93-141). FTP from stis.nsf.gov. [grants, 9/5/93 and 9/19/93.]

(NSF is also recruiting a "Supervisory Criminal Investigator (Special Agent-in-Charge)." Watch out!)

Another brochure is Summer Institute in Japan For US Graduate Students in Science and Engineering, including Biomedical Science and Engineering (NSF 93-124). Application materials for Graduate and Minority Graduate Research Fellowships (NSF 93-111) are available from Oak Ridge Associated Universities, (615) 483-3344; due 11/5/93. [grants, 9/12/93.]

Semiannual competitions for Japanese support, due 11/1/93: Dissertation Enhancement Awards for US Graduate Student Research in Japan; Japan Postdoctoral and Junior Investigator Research Fellowships; Medium and Long-Term Visits in Japan for US Researchers.

Cross-directorate programs have varying deadlines; contact your subject-area program officer or (202) 357-9549. Programs include:

Research Planning Grants (RPG) -- one-time, limited awards to strengthen planning and proposal-writing capabilities.

Career Advancement Awards (CAA) -- for independent investigators whose careers are still evolving, or for other experienced researchers who are changing research direction or who have had a significant research career interruption.

Research Initiation Awards (RIA) -- one-time research grants to new and minority investigators.

Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) -- research and equipment for non-doctoral departments.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) -- support for undergraduate research participation. (Stress what you can do for the student, not what the student can do for you.)

Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) -- collaboration with NSF investigators at larger institutions.
