Description # of Proposals Allowed Please Submit

Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC)

Internal Deadline: May 27, 2022
Sponsor Deadline: June 20, 2022 (preliminary proposal)


The MRSEC program provides sustained support of materials research and education of the highest quality while addressing fundamental problems in science and engineering. Each MRSEC addresses research of a scope and complexity requiring the scale, synergy, and multidisciplinarity provided by a campus-based research center. The MRSECs support materials research infrastructure in the US, promote active collaboration between universities and other sectors, including industry and international organizations, and contribute to the development of a national network of university-based centers in materials research, education, and facilities. A MRSEC may be located at a single institution, or may involve multiple institutions in partnership, and is composed of two to three Interdisciplinary Research Groups, IRGs, each addressing a fundamental materials science topic aligned with the Division of Materials Research, DMR.


New priority areas for DMR are listed in the RFP, including topical areas that broaden the portfolio of the MRSEC Program; high-risk/high-impact research proposals and proposals addressing topical areas of national importance will be given priority

NSF Resilient & Intelligent NextG Systems

Internal Deadline: June 1, 2022; Sponsor Deadline: August 1, 2022

The goal of this solicitation is to invite the submission of proposals to set up a Virtual Organization (VO) for the RINGS program. The VO will facilitate coordination, collaboration, and community-building across academia, government, and industrial partners. The VO will work closely with the RINGS partners to build a strong and effective research community to bolster U.S. leadership across wireless, cloud, and networking sectors.

NSF Physics Frontiers Center (PFC)


Internal Deadline: June 8, 2022
Sponsor Deadline: August 1, 2022 (preliminary proposal); January 27, 2023 (full proposal)

The PFC program supports university-based centers and institutes where the collective efforts of a larger group of individuals can enable transformational advances in the most promising research areas.  The program is designed to foster major breakthroughs at the intellectual frontiers of physics by providing needed resources such as combinations of talents, skills, disciplines, and/or specialized infrastructure, not usually available to individual investigators or small groups, in an environment in which the collective efforts of the larger group can be shown to be seminal to promoting significant progress in the science and the education of students.
