Cross-directorate programs have varying deadlines; contact your subject-area program officer or (202) 357-9549. Programs include:
Research Planning Grants (RPG) -- one-time, limited awards to strengthen planning and proposal-writing capabilities.
Career Advancement Awards (CAA) -- for independent investigators whose careers are still evolving, or for other experienced researchers who are changing research direction or who have had a significant research career interruption.
Research Initiation Awards (RIA) -- one-time research grants to new and minority investigators.
Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) -- research and equipment for non-doctoral departments.
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) -- support for undergraduate research participation. (Stress what you can do for the student, not what the student can do for you.)
Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) -- collaboration with NSF investigators at larger institutions.
