Funding Opportunity National Science Foundation (NSF) - LEAP HI July 15, 2023 (LOI due) The LEAP HI program challenges the engineering research community to take a leadership role in addressing demanding, urgent, and consequential challenges for advancing America’s prosperity, health and infrastructure.  LEAP HI proposals confront engineering problems that are too complex to yield to the efforts of a single investigator --- problems that require sustained and coordinated effort from interdisciplinary research teams, with goals that are not achievable through a series of smaller, short-term projects. LEAP HI
Funding Opportunity National Science Foundation (NSF) - Engineering  October 11, 2022

The Engineering Research Initiation (ERI) program supports new investigators as they initiate their research programs and advance careers as researchers, educators, and innovators.  This opportunity aims to broaden the base of investigators involved in engineering research and therefore is limited to investigators that are not affiliated with “very high research activity” R1 institutions. Engineering Research Initiation.

National Science Foundation (NSF) - Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI)

Registration closes September 20, 2022

Natural Hazards Research Summit 2022 will discuss the research needs and priorities regarding the built environment. The Research Summit will also have a panel of FEMA, NIST, and NSF experts discussing national needs and priorities. Natural Hazards, Federal Research Priorities
Funding Opportunity National Science Foundation (NSF) March 25, 2023 The Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative approaches to STEM graduate education training. The program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. Graduate Education, Research
Funding Opportunity National Science Foundation (NSF) September 2022 (Depending on the track) The International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program supports international research and research-related activities for U.S. science and engineering students. The IRES program contributes to the development of a diverse, globally-engaged workforce with world-class skills. IRES focuses on active research participation by undergraduate and/or graduate students in high-quality international research, education, and professional development experiences in NSF-funded research areas.  Graduate Education, Research
