Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative
CRII Solicitation Update - May 30, 2014
The Additional Eligibility Requirement that the PI be a US Citizen, Permanent Resident or National has been removed and is no longer a requirement for this solicitation.
Full Proposal Deadline Date: September 24, 2014
Fourth Wednesday in September, Annually Thereafter
With the goal of encouraging research independence immediately upon obtaining one's first academic position after receipt of the PhD, the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) will award grants to initiate the course of one's independent research. Understanding the critical role of establishing that independence early in one's career, it is expected that funds will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first two years in an academic position after the PhD. One may not yet have received any other grants in the Principal Investigator (PI) role from any institution or agency, including from the CAREER program or any other award post-PhD. Serving as co-PI, Senior Personnel, Post-doctoral Fellow, or other Fellow does not count against this eligibility rule. It is expected that these funds will allow the new CISE Research Initiation Initiative PI to support one or more graduate students for up to two years.
