Research Infrastructure Improvement Program Track 4

Program: NSF EPSCoR
Deadline: TBD

NSF RII Track 4, or EPSCoR Research Fellows, provides opportunities for non-tenured investigators to develop their research potential though extended collaborative visits to the nation’s premier private, governmental, or academic research centers to learn new techniques, benefit from access to unique equipment and facilities, in hopes of taking their research in new directions. It is hoped that the experience will provide a foundation for research collaborations that span the recipient’s entire career, and ultimately their institution and jurisdiction.
