|Preproposals sought for some NSF programs|
The National Science Foundation has issued the following program announcements which allow UND to submit only a limited number of submissions. Thus, if you are interested in submitting a proposal to NSF for any of the programs, please let us know by January 14,2010 (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone 777-4278.
Geoscience Educations (GeoEd), Program Solicitation #10-512,
Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, Program Solicitation #10-514, http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2010/nsf10514/nsf10514.htm?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25.
As a result of the limited number of proposals that can be submitted, UND will conduct an internal review of preproposals. Preproposals should consist of the following sections:
Cover page listing the project name, collaborators, contact person, total budget amount
Instrument(s) to be purchased or developed and its(their) function(s)
Impact on the research program of the collaborators, department(s), and college(s)
Impact on the university’s mission as a whole
Preproposals should be no more than three pages in length using a reasonable format (1 inch margins, font size 11, single-spaced). Preproposals are due in Research Development and Compliance (RD&C) by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2010. Criteria used for reviewing preproposals will include appropriateness to the goal of the program; probability for funding by NSF; reasonableness of budgetary requests; and impact of the request on the university and the academic units involved. Investigators will be notified of the review results as soon as possible in order to provide as much time as possible to prepare a final proposal for submission.
