Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The objective of the Interdisciplinary Grants in the Mathematical Sciences (IGMS) program is to enable mathematical scientists to undertake research and study in another discipline so as to:
- expand their skills and knowledge in areas other than the mathematical sciences;
- subsequently apply this knowledge in their research; and
- enrich the educational experiences and broaden the career options of their students.
Recipients of an IGMS award are expected to spend full time in a non-mathematical science department in an academic institution or an industrial, commercial or financial organization. The expected outcome is sufficient familiarity with another discipline so as to open opportunities for effective collaboration by the mathematical scientist with researchers in another discipline.
