NSF and AFOSR seek proposals on fundamental research in the quantitative representation of microstructure

October 24, 2017

The NSF Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI), in collaboration with the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), seeks research proposals for multidisciplinary teams with the potential to transform fundamental understanding of structural materials through the quantitative representation of microstructures.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2018, its budget is $7.8 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
