NSF Research Traineeship Program

Synopsis. The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program initially has one priority research theme - Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme.

NSF Scalable Nanomanufacturing

Synopsis. The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a fourth year of a program on collaborative research and education in the area of scalable nanomanufacturing, including the long-term societal implications of the large-scale implementation of nanomanufacturing innovations.

NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education

Synopsis.  This solicitation aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of the FY 2014 competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.

Please see NSF 14-541 for more information.

NSF Grant Audits

The National Science Foundation is using a new approach to identify high risk awardees.   In its 2013 plan of work, the NSF Office of Inspector General (OIG) describes its use of “data analytics” to identify high risk grantees to be selected for audit.
