Removal of deadlines for Engineering core programs, effective August 15
June 7, 2018
The Directorate for Engineering (ENG) has an important change to submission windows for unsolicited proposals to all core programs in four ENG divisions:
- Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET),
- Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI),
- Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems (ECCS), and
- Engineering Education and Centers (EEC).
In order to allow Principal Investigators more flexibility and to better facilitate interdisciplinary research across engineering disciplines, ENG is removing deadlines for submission of unsolicited proposals to all core programs in CBET, CMMI, ECCS and EEC, effective August 15, 2018.

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) 2018, its budget is $7.8 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
