Other NSF and government organizations also offer support for I/UCRCs

I/UCRC Program Solicitation
A new I/UCRC Program solicitation is currently being developed and should post shortly. Solicitation NSF 13-594 has been archived. Any Letters of Intent (LOIs) received will be placed on hold, and once the new solicitation posts, PIs have the option to have their LOI considered under the new solicitation or to withdraw and resubmit their LOI.
