IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) has realigned the way it provides funding for international postdoctoral research fellowships. Proposals will no longer be received by OISE's International Research Fellowship Program (IRFP). The IRFP program has been discontinued as of FY18.
Those seeking fellowship opportunities at NSF should consult the relevant NSF Directorate, and submit them directly to one of those directorate's fellowship programs (see NSF FastLane list of postdoctoral research fellowship programs).
Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after October 4, 2021. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 22-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The objective of the International Research Fellowship Program (IRFP) is to introduce scientists and engineers in the early stages of their careers to international collaborative research opportunities, thereby furthering their research capacity and global perspective and forging long-term relationships with scientists, technologists and engineers abroad. These awards are available in any field of science and engineering research and education supported by the NSF.
This program provides educational opportunities for Postdoctoral Fellows. Individuals interested in applying for funding should see the program guidelines above.
