Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR 200). Please be advised that the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The purpose of the CHE-DMR-DMS Solar Energy Initiative is to support interdisciplinary efforts by groups of researchers to address the scientific challenges of highly efficient harvesting, conversion, and storage of solar energy.  Groups must include three or more co-Principal Investigators, of whom one must be a researcher in chemistry, a second in materials, and a third in mathematical sciences, in areas supported by the Divisions of Chemistry, Materials Research, and Mathematical Sciences, respectively.  The intent is to encourage new collaborations in which the mathematical sciences are linked in a synergistic way with the chemical and materials sciences to develop novel, potentially transformative approaches in an area of much activity but largely incremental advances.  Successful proposals will offer potentially transformative projects, new concepts, and interdisciplinary education through research involvement based on the integrated expertise and synergy from the three disciplinary communities.
