1. NIH RFA-ES-16-011 BD2K Research Education Curriculum Development: Data Science Overview for Biomedical Scientists (R25) – The over-arching goal of this BD2K R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. UIC may submit only one proposal. For additional information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nih-rfa-es16.
2. NRC-HQ-60-17-FOA-0001 U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), Scholarship and Fellowship Education Grant, Faculty Development Grants - The primary objective is to support scholarships for nuclear science, engineering, technology and related disciplines to develop a workforce capable of supporting the design, construction, operation, and regulation of nuclear facilities and the safe handling of nuclear materials. The nuclear-related discipline supported by this funding is intended to benefit the nuclear sector broadly. UIC may submit only one application for the Scholarship Program and one application for the Fellowship Program. For additional information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nrc-nrcf16.
3. NSF 16-591 Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI:BIC) – This program supports academe-industry partnerships which are led by an interdisciplinary academic research team collaborating with a least one industry partner. There is a heavy emphasis on the quality, composition, and participation of the partners, including their appropriate contributions. UIC may submit two proposals. For additional information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nsf-pbibic.
4. NSF 16-503 Research Traineeship (NRT) Program – this program supports the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training. The NRT program seeks proposals that ensure that graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program includes two tracks: the Traineeship Track and the Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) Track. UIC may participate in 2 for the Traineeship Track, 2 for the Innovations in Graduate Education Track (including as lead or non-lead). For additional information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nsf-rtp16.
5. NSF 16-593 Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) Supporting the Next Phase of NCN Nodes Programs - The goals of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) are to: 1) accelerate the transformation of nanoscience to nanotechnology through the integration of simulation with experimentation; 2) engage an ever-larger and more diverse cyber community sharing novel, high-quality nanoscale computation and simulation research and educational resources; 3) develop open-access, open-source software to stimulate data sharing; and 4) inspire and educate the next-generation workforce. UIC may submit only one proposal per Node content area in this solicitation. For additional information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nsf-ncn16.

UIC Hosts a free, exclusive back-to-school music festival just for our UIC students each fall semester called SPARK! In 2010, Spark in the Park was designed to bring local, up and coming, nationally known artists to campus. Past headliners and special guests were The Cool Kids, Flosstradamus, The Hood Internet, Barefoot Truth, Foolight Frenzy, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Lupe Fiasco, Childish Gambino, Santigold, Chance the Rapper, Frankie Knuckles, Griz, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Wale, and Twenty One Pilots.
The music festival offers an eclectic mix of entertainment for UIC’s diverse campus community. In 2015, we featured our Battle of the Bands winner to join the main stage and perform their classmates and welcomes a new SPARK student committee to assist with planning. For 2016, we are happy to now include the DJ Battle winner to kick off the great UIC night!
This year’s SPARK artists are Travis Scott with special guests Young Thug, and Daya. UIC’s very own Battle of the Band's Winner Splor and DJ Battle Winner Nexus & Aztro will open the show!
