Faculty Invited to Apply for Major Research Instrumentation Funding Through the NSF-MRI Program
August 03, 2018
The Research and Faculty Development (RFD) team invites faculty to submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to apply to the NSF Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program, a limited submission funding opportunity.
The NSF MRI program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training in institutions of higher education and not-for-profit scientific/engineering research organizations. An MRI award supports the acquisition or development of a multi-user research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.
As this is a limited submission funding opportunity, the University of Idaho may submit or be included as a significantly funded sub awardee on no more than three proposals. Please contact Research and Faculty Development (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your situation to determine whether a submission counts against the institutional limit.
Cost sharing of precisely 30% of the total project cost is required.
