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
