DEADLINE, Feb. 11, 2020: Navigating the New Arctic solicitation for proposals

January 7, 2020

NSF's Office of Polar Programs has issued a new solicitation for proposals as part of its Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) initiative.

NNA is one of a set of "Big Ideas," 10 long-term research and process ideas that identify areas for future investment at the frontiers of science and engineering. NNA is designed to "tackle convergent scientific challenges" in the rapidly changing Arctic.

Proposals must be submitted to NSF’s Geosciences directorate but, because NNA is a foundation-wide initiative, they will be managed by a cross-directorate team of program directors.

The solicitation may be found here:

Those considering submitting proposals are encouraged to take advantage of “virtual office hours” to speak with various NNA program officers from across the Foundation.

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) 2020, its budget is $8.3 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.
