Limited   Submissions

Some funding agencies limit the number of proposals an institution can submit to certain programs. The Research Office attempts to identify the opportunities that best fit the research interests of Montana Tech and coordinate the proposal development and submission of these limited submissions.

If you become aware of programs that are limited submissions, please contact Trisha Southergill in the Research Office so that they may be announced.


Current Opportunities

Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI)

Title of Program: Major Research Instrumentation Program: (MRI)
Agency: National Science Foundation
Solicitation No.: NSF 15-504
Internal Deadline: October 21, 2016

Program Information

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. The program provides organizations with opportunities to acquire major instrumentation that supports the research and research training goals of the organization and that may be used by other researchers regionally or nationally.

Complete program details are located on the National Science Foundation website.

Montana Tech can submit up to three proposals (2 instrumentation acquisition proposals and 1 instrumentation development proposal regardless of whether the organization serves as the lead organization or as a sub awardee.)

Full Proposal Deadline: January 11, 2017

Limited Submission Instructions

E-mail a 1-2 page concept paper to grants@mtech.edu by 5:00 PM, Friday, October 21st

Concept papers should include:

  • A brief description of the proposed project (including project need, who will this benefit, etc.) and senior personnel
  • An estimated budget and short budget narrative

If we have more than the allowed limit, the concept papers will be reviewed and ranked by the Dean’s Council, and selections made and announced by November 1.

If you have any questions, please contact Trisha Southergill.

Scalable Nanomanufacturing for Integrated Systems (SNM-IS)

Title of Program: National Science Foundation
Agency: National Science Foundation
Solicitation No.: NSF 16-604
Internal Deadline: October 21, 2016

Program Information

The Scalable Nanomanufacturing for Integrated Systems (SNM-IS) solicitation is changed from the previous Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) solicitation in that the objective has shifted from research in large-scale manufacturing of single-component nanomaterials and nanostructures to investigations in scalable nanomanufacturing and integration of multi-component nano-enabled integrated systems. The emphasis is to frame proposals in the context of the realization of integrated systems for the eventual economic manufacture of demonstrably useful nano-enabled products in high volume or customized products in low volume, responsibly and safely.

Complete program details are located on the National Science Foundation website.

Montana Tech may submit only one proposal as the lead institution, however we may participate as a collaborative partner on any number of proposals.

Full Proposal Deadline: January 13, 2016

Limited Submission Instructions
