NSF EPSCoR FY 2018 RII Track-2 FEC - NSF EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Program: Track-2 Funding Opportunity PDF (175 KB)

The topic for the FY 2018, RII Track-2 FEC proposals is Understanding the relationship between genome and phenome.

The RII Track-2 FEC seeks to build inter-jurisdictional collaborative teams of EPSCoR investigators to participate in investigator-driven research in scientific focus areas consistent with NSF priorities. Projects must include researchers from at least two RII eligible EPSCoR jurisdictions who without the assistance of the other team and complementary resources would not be in a position to tackle the projects as well or rapidly alone.

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research and education activities should include and integrate a variety of individuals, institutions, sectors and programs to broaden participation throughout the project. Proposals must reflect an integrated comprehensive vision to drive discovery and build sustainable STEM capacity that exemplifies individual, institutional, geographic, and disciplinary diversity with an emphasis on developing a diverse early-career faculty.

Submission Deadline:
Letters of Intent (required) due by 5:00 pm, submitter's local time on November 27, 2017.
Full Proposals due by 5:00 pm, submitter's local time on January 26, 2018.
