This program is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and managed by the National Academies, in partnership with NSF.  PEER Science proposals will be accepted only from researchers in eligible developing countries who are actively engaged in or plan to be engaged in a collaborative research project with an NSF-funded PI. PEER Science proposals are not accepted from U.S. researchers.   Please see the National Academies website for complete eligibility details, proposal submission instructions, and the application form. Program questions should be directed to the PEER Science program staff at peer@nas.edu.    

PROGRAM GUIDELINES

This program is managed by our partner agency. Please see the Synopsis below for instructions on how to apply for funding.

SYNOPSIS

Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) Science is a USAID-funded competitive grants program that provides an opportunity to support scientists in developing countries who work with NSF-funded principal investigators (PIs) at U.S. institutions.  PEER Science is intended to build scientific capacity and empower researchers in developing countries to use science and technology to address local and global development challenges. PEER Science funding may be used to train students and faculty, equip laboratories and field stations, and fund research, building scientific networks to address global challenges.

The National Academies, which administers the PEER Science program, will receive and review PEER Science proposals that have been prepared and submitted by developing country scientists and will make awards directly to institutions in host countries. Please see the National Academies website for complete eligibility details, proposal submission instructions, and the application form. Potential applicants with questions are invited to contact the program's staff at peer@nas.edu.

PEER Science proposals will be accepted from researchers in eligible developing countries.  Developing country applicants should either be actively engaged in or plan to be engaged in a collaborative research project with an NSF-funded PI.  PEER Science proposals are not accepted from U.S. researchers.

Areas in which both NSF and USAID have strong mutual interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Food security topics such as agricultural development, fisheries, and plant genomics
  • Climate change impacts such as water sustainability, hydrology, ocean acidification, climate process and modeling, and environmental engineering
  • Other development topics including disaster mitigation, biodiversity, water, and renewable energy

Additionally, USAID missions and technical offices have made additional funding available for research conducted on specific topics of interest, as specified in the PEER Science solicitation.
