The National Science Foundation (NSF) is again accepting proposals for its Major Research Instrumentation Program.

This grant will provide up to $4 million to acquire or develop a piece of research equipment. This year, proposals are due January 24, 2014.

This is a limited submission opportunity: Illinois State can only submit two proposals (or three, if at least one is for instrument development, rather than acquisition). Because of this, please contact Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) as soon as possible if you are interested in submitting a proposal to this program. More information about the program is available on the NSF website.

If you are interested, or if you have questions, please contact RSP at (309) 438-2528 or
