National Science Foundation 2018 Major Research Instrumentation Competition

Posted on 9/11/2017 1:15:07 PM

The National Science Foundation is holding its 2018 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. This year, the internal competition will be handled through our InfoReady Review system. Please review the submission details and internal competition information on the competition page in InfoReady.

In the past, IUP has been very successful in obtaining awards from this program, so we strongly encourage you to consider this opportunity.

    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 the Program Guidelines and the Frequently Asked Questions. Full proposals to NSF will be due on or before January 10, 2018.

    Proposals should be submitted using the InfoReady Review system no later than the close of business on Monday, October 16, 2017. 

    For questions, please contact the IUP Research Institute at 724-357-2223.
