The FY2019 budget request would represent a $7.47 billion investment in strengthening the nation's economy, security and global leadership through research in cutting-edge science and engineering. At this proposed level of funding, steady with FY2017 congressional appropriations, NSF would continue its work supporting research that advances national priorities such as growth in manufacturing, defense and cybersecurity.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is making major changes to the way the research community registers for NSF accounts and maintains account and user profile information in FastLane and Research.gov. Effective March 26, 2018, NSF is introducing a new centralized and streamlined account registration process in Research.gov for the research community that will provide each new user with a single profile and unique identifier (i.e., NSF ID) for signing in to FastLane and Research.gov for proposal and award activities.
The OSU Graduate School Awards announce nominations for the FY18-19 period. This year they opened all awards for the 18-19 cycle for your review and nomination to make it easier to facilitate the nomination process for all programs and departments, while allowing plenty of time to review and submit the required nomination forms and documents.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biology (PRFB) Program awards fellowships to recent recipients of the doctoral degree for research and training in selected areas supported by BIO and with special goals for human resource development in biology. Additional information about the program is available at: https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503622
