Reposted from IOS in Focus – No-Deadline Update; Be the first to know when new funding opportunities are announced…

Our colleagues in the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS) recently posted a No-Deadline Update, with a helpful tip for staying current on our new solicitations with NSF Updates.

Following up on a previous post, “Upcoming Changes for Fiscal Year 2019 Award Submission,” new solicitations to replace previous solicitations in the DBI Research Resources Cluster will be made available after mid-year 2018.  Programs affected include:

  • Advances in Biological Informatics (ABI –NSF 15-582)
  • Collections in Support of Biological Research (CSBR – NSF 15-577)
  • Improvements in Facilities, Communications, and Equipment at Biological Field Stations and Marine Laboratories (FSML – NSF 16-506)
  • Instrument Development for Biological Research (IDBR – NSF 13-561)

For more information on the move to “no-deadline”, please see the Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 18-011) and the Frequently Asked Questions.

It’s mid-August and I bet you’re wondering what’s going on with the solicitations.

The wait will soon be over – the solicitations are in the final stages of the NSF review and clearance by the NSF Policy Office, Budget Office and the Office of the NSF General Counsel (i.e., our lawyers). Once they are cleared, they will be ready for release!

Make sure to sign up for NSF Updates, the email service that will alert you the minute that the solicitations are active online. Read them carefully for important information about proposal submission to DBI and if you have questions, contact a program director.
