NSF Major Research Instrumentation Grant

Posted on 10/6/2011 10:19:52 AM

The National Science Foundation is holding its annual Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program competition. Institutions are limited to two proposals for instrument acquisition and one proposal for instrument development.

Due to this restriction, IUP is holding an internal competition for interested IUP faculty and staff members. Researchers should provide a one-page description (additional pages will be discarded and not reviewed) of the type of equipment they are interested in purchasing and how the equipment will benefit research and research training at IUP. Please be sure to include your name, department, and contact information.

For general information on the MRI program, please see the program synopsis. For more detailed information about award limits, eligibility, and other considerations, please refer to last year’s program guidelines.

The one-page project description should be submitted no later than close of business on Monday, November 7, 2011. Project descriptions may be submitted via e-mail, campus mail, or hand delivery to:

School of Graduate Studies and Research
Indiana University of Pennsylvania
Attn.: Dr. Hilliary Creely
Stright Hall, Room 113
