The NSF-Census Research Network  (NCRN)

Announcement for New Funding Opportunites

Coordination of the NSF-Census Research Network.  In fiscal year 2011, NSF made eight awards in response to proposals submitted to the NSF-Census Research Network Program Solicitation (NCRN; NSF 10-621).  This Dear Colleague Letter provides information on funding opportunities at the National Science Foundation for the research community to propose a coordination body for these new projects.

Important Notice:

The fiscal year 2011 NCRN competition is over.  Currently, we are not accepting proposals for this solicitation.  Any changes to the status of the solicitation will be posted on this web page.

Important Clarifications

Important Clarifications for Proposals Regarding Census Bureau Staff Members - January 10, 2011

(1) To avoid giving some proposals unfair advantage over others, the Census Bureau informed its employees in mid-December that no Census Bureau staff member may be listed as having committed their time to a proposal submitted to the NCRN solicitation.  NSF and the Census Bureau would like to make sure that the research community understands the implications of this decision for proposals submitted to the solicitation.

Because Census Bureau employees may not serve as active participants on proposals submitted to this competition, the successful completion of the proposed research should not depend on the collaboration of specific individual Census Bureau staff members.

Investigators may reference past activities with Census staff members and/or the Census Bureau in their proposals, and Census Bureau experts may be consulted in the preparation of proposals.  In addition, the Census Bureau expects to be able to provide targeted expertise to funded nodes as appropriate.  Please note that the Project Description has a section entitled Resources from the Census Bureau.  Requests for expertise should be included in that section.  For more information, see Section V. Proposal Preparation and Submission Instructions.

Over time, NSF and Census hope to foster more significant collaborations between funded nodes and Census staff members.

(2) Proposals submitted to this solicitation should not request funds for the establishment of a new Research Data Center (RDC). NSF and the Census Bureau have a separate and independent process for the establishment of new RDCs.  More information on RDCs is available at http://www.census.gov/ces/.

Proposals submitted to this solicitation are not required to use data at one of the existing RDCs.  However, if access to confidential data at an RDC is necessary for the project, then access costs should be included in the proposal.

DUE DATES

Current but no Longer Receiving Proposals

SYNOPSIS

The NSF-Census Research Network will provide support for a set of research nodes, each of which will be staffed by a team of scientists conducting interdisciplinary research and educational activities on methodological questions of interest and significance to the broader research community and to the Federal Statistical System, particularly the U.S. Census Bureau.  The activities will be expected to advance both fundamental and applied knowledge as well as further the training of current and future generations of researchers in research skills of relevance to the measurement of economic units, households, and persons.
