National Science Foundation 2019 Major Research Instrumentation Competition

Posted on 7/19/2018 9:37:41 AM

The National Science Foundation is holding its Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program competition. Institutions are limited to no more than two Track 1 submissions (requesting from NSF $100,000 to less than $1 million) and no more than one Track 2 submission (requesting from NSF $1 million to $4 million). Proposals within the two tracks may be for either acquisition or development of a research instrument. Due to the limited number of permitted submissions, IUP is holding an internal competition for interested IUP faculty and staff members.

Please review the submission details and internal competition information on the competition page in InfoReady ReviewIn 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. Proposals for the IUP internal competition should be submitted via InfoReady Review no later than Monday, October 1, 2018 at 4:30 pm. Once approved, full proposals to NSF will be due January 1, 2019.
