This site provides program information for activities sponsored by more than one NSF organization. In addition, all NSF organizations accept proposals that cut across organizational and programmatic boundaries. We suggest that those seeking support for interdisciplinary work not described here consult the NSF program site(s) closest to the science, engineering or education focus of the planned work and contact relevant program officers to discuss submission of a proposal.
