    SBE Office of Multidisciplinary Activities (SMA)

    SMA provides a focal point for programmatic activities that cut across NSF and SBE boundaries, and is SBE’s broadest mechanism for contributing to Administration and NSF priorities. While all SBE divisions pursue interdisciplinary work, SMA assists with seeding multidisciplinary activities for the future and plays a critical role in the development of infrastructure to support interdisciplinary activities. SMA also funds Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP), Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Sites programs, Minority Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (MPRF), and the agency-wide Science of Learning Centers (SLCs).  Co-funding with other divisions in SBE and with other directorates is typical for SMA, as is participation in interagency activities.  All areas of SBE sciences are represented in the SMA portfolio.
