NSF- FY 2015 Clean Energy Technologies Funding Opportunities

August 18, 2014

Dear Colleagues:

It is critical to provide sustainable and economical energy systems on a scale sufficient to power all of society's needs. The development of clean energy technologies is an important step in that direction as it addresses the interrelated challenges of producing safe and responsible energy sources while reducing our dependence on foreign oil and minimizing the impact on the environment.

NSF- East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI)

Program:  EAPSI awards are available in any area of science and engineering research or education supported by NSF.  EAPSI awards provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering: 1) first-hand research experiences in partner locations, i.e., Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan; 2) an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and 3) an orientation to the society, culture, and language of these locations.

Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Department of Defense Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative (MURI)

Program:  The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U.S. institutions of higher education that is of potential interest to the Department of Defense (DoD). The program is focused on multidisciplinary research efforts where more than one traditional discipline interacts to provide rapid advances in scientific areas of interest to the DoD.

NSF- Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education in Engineering (NUE)

Program:  NSF aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of the FY 2013 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.
