NSF MRI program accepting proposals

The National Science Foundation’s MRI Program is accepting proposals for scientific and engineering instruments for shared research and research training. The program assists with the acquisition or development of shared instrumentation that is too costly or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs. SIUC is allowed to submit three proposals, which must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. Nov. 13 to the Office of Sponsored Program Administration. An committee will oversee proposal selection, and applications will be notified of decisions by Friday, Nov. 22. For information on the internal process, click here or go to: http://ospa.siu.edu/find/limited-submission.html. The deadline for full proposal submission to NSF is Jan. 23, 2014.  Please contact OSPA at 453-4540 if you have questions regarding the limited submission process.
