Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET)

Special Funding Announcements

Please note the recently announced funding opportunity described in Dear Colleague Letter 15-065, EAGERs for Cellular Biomanufacturing.  The Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET) Division seeks EArly-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals that address key challenges in cellular biomanufacturing science and engineering, whether the intended use of the final cell product is in cell therapies, engineered tissues, or drug discovery and testing platforms that incorporate living cells, or whether the cells are used in novel protein production processes.  Inquiries need to be received by April 24, 2015.  Please read the announcement for additional details.

Submission Window and Important Proposal Info

The next CBET unsolicited proposal window will be:

October 1 - October 20, 2015

October 1 - October 20, Annually Thereafter

Unsolicited proposals received outside of the announced proposal window dates will be returned without review. Proposals that are not compliant with the Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) will also be returned without review.

CBET discourages the submission of more than one proposal from the same PI during the proposal-submission window. Proposals that are duplicates of, or substantially similar to, a proposal already under consideration by NSF from the same submitter are subject to return without review. This policy also applies to proposals that were previously reviewed and declined and have not been substantially revised, as well as to duplicates of other proposals that were already awarded.
