NSF — Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative (CRII)

Date Due: 08/08/18 2nd Wednesday in August annually thereafter

Amount: $175,000 for up to 2 years

Summary: CRII awards will be given to researchers to undertake exploratory investigations, to acquire and test preliminary data, develop collaborations within or across research disciplines, and/or develop new algorithms, approaches, and system designs/prototypes, which together or separately may lead to improved capacity to write successful proposals submitted to other programs in the future.

In preparing this proposal, PIs should refer to Section V.A for guidance about the organization of the proposal. PIs should be aware that reviewers will be asked to consider the following: 1) the appropriateness of the research objectives for the relatively short duration of the CRII award; 2) the potential of the research initiation activities to produce sufficient preliminary results to serve as the basis for future competitive research proposals; and 3) whether the activities are seen to be the necessary and critical steps for the PI to achieve research independence.

Keywords: engineering, information, interdisciplinary

Notes: Researchers from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Limitations: PI may submit one proposal per year and may not participate in more than two CRII competitions. These are early career awards. PI must be untenured or research faculty in their first three years in a primary academic position but not more than five years after completion of Ph.D.
