Montana Grant Program Seeking Proposals

The Montana National Science Foundation-EPSCoR State Competitive Grants Program (SCGP; formerly MONTS) provides seed funding for Montana researchers to develop proposals for submission to the federal funding agencies. Three target areas are encouraged for proposal development: Nanotechnology, Integrative Analysis of Complex Biological Systems, and Biomolecular Structure and Function.

Deadline for submission is Monday, Jan. 7, 2002.

All tenure and non-tenure track faculty are encouraged to submit proposals for consideration of one-year awards up to $40,000 under one of three categories: Collaborative proposals, which promote collaborative research efforts between investigators at different institutions within Montana; Individual proposals, which are single PI or co-PI (same institution) submissions; and research re-entry proposals aimed at revitalizing research efforts of faculty members who are currently without research funds.

Collaborative research projects between different campuses within the Montana University System and the tribal colleges are particularly encouraged, but potential collaborations with other nonprofit and government organizations will be considered. Funding for all three categories will be awarded on a competitive basis regardless of category. Submission of a nationally competitive grant within one year of completion of the grant is required of each recipient.

The complete Request For Proposals and submission forms can be found at by calling the MSU NSF EPSCoR Office at 994-2080.
