OSP FO# 11-001
AGENCY: Department of Commerce (DOC)/National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)/Physical Measurement Laboratory
OBJECTIVES: This program supports basic, measurement-related research in universities and colleges, other research laboratories, and promotes efforts to foster contacts between NIST scientists, faculty members of academic institutions and other researchers who are actively engaged in such work. The Precision Measurement Grants are intended to make it possible for researchers to pursue new ideas for which other sources of support may be difficult to find. There is some latitude in research topics that will be considered under the Precision Measurement Grants Program. The key requirement is that the proposed project is consistent with NIST’s ongoing work in the field of basic measurement science.
Abbreviated Proposal: February 4, 2011
Full Proposal (by invitation only): May 6, 2011
FUNDING INFORMATION: NIST anticipates providing a total of $100,000 to fund 2 new awards. Applicants should propose multi-year projects for up to three years at no more than $50,000 per year. Second and third year funding will be at the discretion of NIST, based on satisfactory performance, continuing relevance to program objectives, and the availability of funds.
