Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NSF-NUE) in Engineering
The Research Office, Office for Research Development is requesting letters of intent for the National Science Foundation (NSF) – Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NSF-NUE) in Engineering program.
The NSF-NUE program aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of the FY 2014 competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
Research Office Letter of Intent submission deadline: Friday, April 4, 2014
Anticipated Funding Amount: $1,900,000 pending availability of funds. Each award will be up to a maximum of $200,000 for two years.
Limit Summary: Only one proposal may be submitted by a US academic institution, College/Department of Engineering or College/Department of Engineering Technology as the lead institution.
The proposals will need to be screened within the College of Engineering. If there are multiple proposals we ask that Dean Ashford determine which proposal will represent the college and Oregon State University for submission to NSF by the full proposal deadline of May 27, 2014.
