The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training. The NRT program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers.

Notes: 

 

Anticipated funding for the program this year is $36.1M with an estimated 10-12 awards to be made.  The priority areas are 1) Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) and Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water (INFEWS), although other interdisciplinary areas will be considered.  There is no Innovation in Graduate Education (IGE)  category this cycle.  The University is allowed to submit two applications.  If you are interested in applying, please submit a pre-proposal by November 21st.  An internal review team will evaluate the pre-proposals and inform the successful applicants by December 4, 2017, 2 days before the letter of intent is due.  Please contact OVPRGS for the criteria for MSU’s internal reviews.   The deadline for full proposal submission is February 6, 2018. 

NSF 18-511: Partnerships for Innovation

Number of Submissions Per Institution: 
2
Submissions Per Institution: 
Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 2 An organization may submit no more than two (2) proposals to this solicitation. This eligibility constraint will be strictly enforced. In the event that an organization exceeds this limit, the first two proposals received will be accepted, and the remainder will be returned without review. An organization will not receive more than one (1) award from this solicitation. Limit on Number of Proposals per PI or Co-PI: 2 A PI or co-PI may submit up to two proposals to the solicitation. These could be two proposals to PFI-TT, one proposal each to PFI-TT and PFI-RP or two proposals to PFI-RP. A PI or co-PI will not receive more than one award from this solicitation. The submission of duplicate or substantially similar or equivalent proposals concurrently for review to the solicitation will result in the return of the redundant proposals. A PI or co-PI may resubmit a previously declined proposal; however, the proposal must be revised and have taken into account the major comments or concerns resulting from the prior NSF review. A resubmission of a previously declined proposal must include a summary of the previous NSF reviewer comments and the PI's response must be included in the supplemental documents (see Supplementary Documents, below). The revised proposal will be subject to NSF's merit review process.

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. The program provides organizations with opportunities to acquire major instrumentation that supports the research and research training goals of the organization and that may be used by other researchers regionally or nationally.

Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Pathways into Geoscience

Number of Submissions Per Institution: 
1
Submissions Per Institution: 
An organization may serve as sole submitting institution or as lead institution of a collaborative project on only one submission per competition, regardless of track, but may serve as the non-lead institution of a collaborative project more than once per competition. Additional eligibility requirements described later in the solicitation.

A well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to the Nation's health and economy. Indeed, recent policy actions and reports have drawn attention to the opportunities and challenges inherent in increasing the number of highly qualified STEM graduates, including STEM teachers. Priorities include educating students to be leaders and innovators in emerging and rapidly changing STEM fields as well as educating a scientifically literate populace.

Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science

Number of Submissions Per Institution:

Towards a Leadership-Class Computing Facility - Phase I (NSF 17-558)

Number of Submissions Per Institution: 
1
Submissions Per Institution: 
An organization may submit only one proposal but may be identified as sub-awardee on other proposals responding to this solicitation. The restriction to no more than one submitted proposal as lead institution is to help ensure that there is appropriate institutional commitment necessary for responsible oversight, by the potential awardee institution, of a national resource. Collaborative projects may only be submitted as a single proposal in which a single award is being requested. The involvement of partner organizations should be supported through sub-awards administered by the submitting organization.
