Letter of Intent: Monday, July 11, 2016
Pre-Proposals: Friday, September 2, 2016
Nevada will be eligible to submit a new proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Research Infrastructure Improvement Track-1 (RII Track-1) in August 2017. The award is expected to provide federal funding of $20M total over five years, with $16M dedicated to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) research and education activities supported by NSF. The remaining $4M will fund the Nevada EPSCoR office’s management, administration, communication, evaluation, and sustainability activities required by NSF.
NSF limits EPSCoR-eligible states to a single RII Track-1 proposal submission. Therefore, the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) hereby invites interested research teams to submit pre- proposals (which must be preceded by an LOI) for evaluation by an external panel of reviewers, assisting NSHE in identifying the project most likely to result in an award under NSF’s 2017 competition.
Only researchers who have submitted a Letter of Intent (LOI) may submit a pre-proposal. Submitting an LOI does not bind you to submit an NSF EPSCoR pre-proposal, nor does it bind you to the specifics of the project described in the LOI.
