NSF accepting proposals related to Hurricane Harvey


September 5, 2017

Through NSF Dear Colleague Letter 17-128, NSF encourages the submission of proposals that seek to address the challenges related to Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath.  

NSF also will support fundamental science and engineering research projects whose results may enable our country to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate future catastrophic events. 
 
Research proposals relating to a better fundamental understanding of the impacts of the storm (both physical and societal), human aspects of natural disasters (including first responders and the general public), emergency response methods, and approaches that promise to reduce future damage also are welcome.
 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2017, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
