IMPORTANT NOTICE: International Science and Engineering (ISE) has realigned the way it provides funding for international postdoctoral research fellowships.  Proposals will no longer be received by ISE's International Research Fellowship Program (IRFP).

Instead, ISE will provide postdoctoral fellowship support for international research and education activities in partnership with NSF's directorate postdoctoral fellowship programs.  Applications should be submitted directly to one of those fellowship programs (see NSF FastLane list of postdoctoral research fellowship programs). ISE will work with each program to support international dimensions of postdoctoral fellowships.  For additional information, check this page -

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.

Current but no Longer Receiving Proposals

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.
