New NSF opportunity for broadening participation in microelectronics

February 28, 2024

The NSF Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Initiative (NSF INCLUDES) has begun a new funding opportunity that aims to broaden participation in microelectronics through Research Experiences and Mentoring, in response to the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022.

Through a collaboration between NSF INCLUDES and the NSF Research Experience and Mentoring (REM) program, active NSF projects with a microelectronics focus may request supplemental funding up to $250,000 to engage participants in a microelectronics research environment and structured mentoring throughout the 2024-2025 academic year.

EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) and conference proposals will also be considered.

For more information, see Dear Colleague Letter: NSF INCLUDES Research Experience and Mentoring (REM) Supplemental Funding Opportunities (NSF 24-062). For Fiscal Year 2024 funding, proposals are due by April 10, 2024. 

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. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
