Program directors from across CISE will host a 90 minute webinar to provide the CISE community with information about the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative  (CRII) and answer questions. The solicitation may be found on the NSF website:

All are invited to attend.

The NSF Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) seeks to award grants intended to support research independence among early-career academicians who specifically lack access to adequate organizational or other resources. It is expected that funds obtained through this program will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first three years in a primary academic position after the PhD, but not more than five years after completion of their PhD.

Importantly, the CRII program seeks to provide essential resources to enable early-career PIs to launch their research careers. For the purposes of this program, CISE defines “essential resources” as sufficient funds for 48 months of graduate student support. A new Department Chair/Head Letter template [] must be used to affirm PI eligibility. The primary change in the CRII solicitation compared to the previous solicitation is a clearer definition of how this support must be calculated.
