Description

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has posted a grant opportunity titled "Research Training Groups in the Mathematical Sciences". This grant aims to strengthen the nation's scientific competitiveness by increasing the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents pursuing careers in the mathematical sciences. The grant supports efforts to improve graduate student research training and professional development through structured groups pursuing collaborative research. The program encourages submissions in all fields within mathematical sciences, with a special emphasis on aligning and integrating research in mathematics and statistics with emerging areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Biotechnology, Quantum Computing, and Cybersecurity. The grant has an estimated total program funding of $12,000,000 and expects to make 10 awards. The award ceiling is $600,000, while the award floor is $400,000. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The eligibility to submit proposals is limited to Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) accredited in the US, with a campus located in the US, acting on behalf of their faculty members. The proposing IHE must grant a doctoral degree in the mathematical sciences. The lead institution for collaborative projects must also grant a doctoral degree in mathematical sciences. The grant supports participating trainees (undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates) who are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the United States or its territories and possessions. The close date for this grant opportunity is August 13, 2024. For more information, you can visit the NSF Publication 24-570 at http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf24570.
