NSF DCL for New Zealand and Japan


Dr. Subra Suresh, Director of the National Science Foundation (NSF), has issued a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) concerning the acceptance of proposals to conduct research on the effects of the February 21, 2011 magnitude 6.3 South Island of New Zealand (Christchurch) earthquake, and the March 11, 2011 magnitude 9.0 earthquake near the East Coast of Honshu (Tohoku), Japan with the ensuing tsunami and nuclear power plant crises. The number of awards made by CISE, ENG, and OISE will depend on the quality of the proposals received and the availability of funds.

For timely consideration, proposals should be submitted electronically via the NSF FastLane system by Friday, April 29, 2011. It is anticipated that the majority of awards will not exceed $50,000.
