Upcoming Limited Submission Grant Funding Opportunities

To request a review and approval for a limited submission grant proposal please contact OSRP Director Betsy Jinks. 


National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI)

Deadline: January 21, 2020

Funding ranges: Track 1: $100,000 - $1 million; Track 2: $1 million - $4 million

Limit: Each performing organization is limited to a maximum of three proposals, with no more than two submissions in Track 1 and no more than one submission in Track 2.

The Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training in our Nation's 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.

MRI provides support to acquire critical research instrumentation without which advances in fundamental science and engineering research may not otherwise occur. MRI also provides support to develop next-generation research instruments that open new opportunities to advance the frontiers in science and engineering research. Additionally, an MRI award is expected to enhance research training of students who will become the next generation of instrument users, designers and builders.
