Catalyzing New International Collaborations  (CNIC)  NSF Wide Programs

This program has been archived.

CNIC Announcement

CNIC is temporarily suspended due to higher-than-anticipated application rates and inadequate funds to support the number of proposals submitted.

Proposals may be submitted in the future and will be considered if funds are available.

Steven  D. Burch OISE-CNIC@nsf.gov (703) 292-7226  1155  

CNIC awards support short international planning visits by US-based researchers or small workshops that are expected to result in submission of follow-on full research proposal(s) to NSF. In addition to the formal solicitation, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the CNIC program are available. Potential proposers should review both these FAQs and the solicitation before contacting program staff. Prior to formal submission in response to this solicitation, it is required that potential proposers make contact with the cognizant IIA/ISE Country/Regional Program Officer. The IIA/ISE Country/Regional Program Officers are listed at http://www.nsf.gov/od/iia/ise/country-list.jsp. Note that CNIC does not provide support for, or to participate in, international conferences or congresses. Such support should be requested in proposal(s) to an NSF Directorate (see NSF Grant Proposal Guide sections II.D.8 & II.D.9).
