National Science Foundation (NSF) - Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program - NSF limits the number of proposals submitted to two (2) per university. The next deadline for submission is on January 10, 2018. Since MSU is allowed to only submit two (2) MRI proposals, we need to plan for a potential internal competition. Anyone planning to submit a proposal in January must contact the Office of Sponsored Programs byt November 17, 2017. This will give us time to hold an internal competition should there be more than two (2) proposed submissions. The solicitation can be found here and the limited submission policy can be found here.
The Office of Sponsored Programs publishes a quarterly newsletter giving information on services and funding opportunities.
