Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement proposals will no longer be submitted via the SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIG) solicitation (NSF 11-547). For all future SBE DDRIG competitions, each SBE program that currently participates in this funding opportunity will either include DDRIGs in their current program's funding vehicle or will create a new solicitation for them.

The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2023 budget of $9.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards.
