National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) assists in the acquisition or development of major research instrumentation.
As an institution, we can submit up to 3 MRI proposals (at least 1 of which must be for instrument development and no more than 2 for instrument acquisition) on which we are either the lead or partner institution.
In order to facilitate the selection of our submissions to NSF, we have set a deadline of October 16, 2015 to receive preliminary MRI proposals for internal review. More information, including directions for submitting a preliminary proposal to OARS can be found here.
The deadline for eligible faculty to submit an application for a CFR Faculty Research Grant is 5:00pm on Friday, October 16, 2015. The deadline to submit a nomination for a CFR Distinguished Scholar or Junior Faculty Scholar Award is 5:00pm on Monday, March 7, 2016. Applications for the CFR PREP Program are accepted any time.
As of August 1, 2015, Miami University no longer subscribes to ProQuest's funding opportunity database, Pivot, and instead subscribes to a similar product from InfoEd called SPIN Global Suite.
The switch will provide Miami's faculty, staff, and students with a substantially similar service at a savings of nearly $14,000 over the next two years.
The SPIN Global Suite is available to the Miami University community at http://infoedglobal.com. (Click on SPIN next to "CLIENT LOGIN TO:" at the very top of the page.) Please consider bookmarking this site for easy access in the future.
