Limited Submission Announcement:

National Science Foundation IGERT

The National Science Foundation has developed the Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship program to meet the challenges of educating U.S. scientists and engineers.

The full program announcement is available here: www.nsf.gov/pubs/2011/nsf11533/nsf11533.htm

One proposal may be submitted by an institution – either as a single institution or as a lead institution in a multi-institution proposal.

Any individual may participate as a principal investigator or co-principal investigator in only one proposal submission. A PI or co-PI on one proposal may serve as a faculty participant on other proposals.

The program requires submission of a letter of intent by May 1, 2012. The full proposal submission deadline is July 2, 2012.

Since the NSF limits the number of proposals, the Division of Research is conducting a pre-proposal selection process. If you plan to develop an IGERT proposal, please submit a two-page summary of your planned application by December 12, 2011. Address the following three items in your submission:

  1. How your proposal will meet the IGERT program goals and the anticipated outcomes if successfully funded;

  2. The background and experience of each of the primary collaborators and the roles they will have in meeting the program objectives; and

  3. The anticipated budgets and other commitments that will be necessary to successfully complete the project.

Please submit the summary as an email attachment to Camille Coley, Assistant Vice President for Research, at ccoley@fau.edu. The Vice President for Research, Dr. Barry Rosson, will convene a panel of impartial reviewers to provide guidance on which project will be pursued this year for full proposal development. The decision and notifications are to be made by December 16, 2011. If you have any questions about the IGERT program, or the pre-submission process, please contact Camille Coley by e-mail or phone at 561-297-3461.
