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.
