The outbreak has altered undergraduate education in unforeseen ways, including forcing temporary closures and unplanned switches to online classes. DUE thinks that research about the impacts of such responses on students and educators could provide important new knowledge about STEM learning, virtual learning environments, the impact of stress on learning, and many other important topics. Alternatively or in addition , if you have an urgent research need or opportunity, you may consider submitting proposals via the following funding mechanisms:. See Chapter II. Request supplemental support for your existing award. See Chapter VI.

New Research: The Real Impacts of COVID-19 on Small Business
The coronavirus pandemic has introduced a new, and sometimes challenging, facet to society: social distancing. How to receive services and conduct interactions under these restrictions is one of the more pressing challenges of the moment. Enter Florida Tech and a science researcher building upon a decade of studies into speech recognition and related technologies who could potentially assist society with handling this change. Veton Kepuska , a Florida Tech computer engineering and sciences assistant professor, has proposed the development of a voice-only system, aided by speech recognition, to substitute for physical interaction and help prevent potential disease contamination and spread. Spurred by the COVID pandemic, Kepuska is seeking federal funding to develop a prototype system, which he would then install into a humanoid robot that could communicate and perform tasks with potentially infected individuals.
In light of the emergence and spread of the coronavirus disease COVID in the United States and abroad, the National Science Foundation NSF is accepting proposals to conduct non-medical, non-clinical-care research that can be used immediately to explore how to model and understand the spread of COVID, to inform and educate about the science of virus transmission and prevention, and to encourage the development of processes and actions to address this global challenge. NSF encourages the research community to respond to this challenge through existing funding opportunities. In addition, we invite researchers to use the Rapid Response Research RAPID funding mechanism, which allows NSF to receive and review proposals having a severe urgency with regard to availability of or access to data, facilities or specialized equipment as well as quick-response research on natural or anthropogenic disasters and similar unanticipated events. Well-justified proposals that exceed these limits may be entertained. All questions should be directed either to a program officer managing an NSF program with which the research would be aligned or to rapid-covid19 nsf.
