Important Information for Proposers

ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 18-1 may 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.
