New Arctic Research Opportunities Solicitation in Preparation
September 22, 2009
Division of Arctic Sciences is preparing a new solicitation. We anticipate that it will be posted soon. The new deadline for this year would be three months from the release date.
Proposers who submit before the release of the new solicitation will be given the option of withdrawing and resubmitting for the new deadline or letting their proposals stand as submitted and be considered with those that come in under the new solicitation.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2020 budget of $8.3 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
