Important Notice to Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 13-1, was issued on October 4, 2012 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 13-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Please be aware that significant changes have been made to the PAPPG to implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, National Science Foundation's Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions. While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals. Annual and final reports also will be affected.
A by-chapter summary of this and other significant changes is provided at the beginning of both the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award & Administration Guide.
The purposes of the Collaboration in Mathematical Geoscience activity are: (A) [Interdisciplinary Group Research Projects] to enable collaborative research at the intersection of mathematical sciences and geosciences, and to encourage cross-disciplinary education through (B) [Interdisciplinary Post-graduate Summer Training] summer graduate training activities and (C) [Interdisciplinary Post-doctoral Research] opportunities for interdisciplinary post-doctoral research. Research topics under (A) should fall within one of three broad themes: (1) mathematical and statistical modeling of large, complex geosystems, (2) representing uncertainty in geosystems, or (3) analyzing large geoscience data sets. Research projects supported under this activity must be essentially collaborative in nature. Research groups must include at least one mathematical scientist and at least one geoscientist.

From time to time, this program may provide support to institutions to organize interdisciplinary summer schools in mathematical geosciences for graduate students. To inquire about opportunities to participate in these schools, contact one of the awarded institutions. These may be identified by clicking on the Awards link and looking for award titles that begin, "CMG TRAINING" or "CMG COLLABORATIVE TRAINING".
