Successful NSF (National Science Foundation) grant proposals

The "alphabet soup" of NSF's grant programs can be daunting. To find out whether there is a funding program that fits your intended research project, you may want to browse on the NSF funding opportunities webpage.

Jump down to

CAREER (Faculty Early Career Development Program)

Research in the Geosciences (Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences)

TUES (Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

Note: Until 2010, this program was called CCLI (Course Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement)

Because CCLI grants vary so widely in topic and scope, you may also find it helpful to search the NSF database of awards to find additional recent examples.

OEDG (Opportunity for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences)

REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates)

MRI (Major Research Instrumentation)

IF (Instrumentation and Facilities)
