NIST Seeks Proposals for $35 Million in Grants for Measurement Science

GAITHERSBURG, MD-The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will award up to $35 million in grants and cooperative agreements for measurement science and engineering research. Approximately 20 to 60 awards, lasting from one to three years, and ranging from $500,000 to $1.5 million, will be funded by these grants, which are part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

“The Recovery Act provides a unique opportunity to expand scientific research in the pursuit of economic prosperity,” says Commerce Secretary Gary Locke. NIST is looking for proposals that advance the state of knowledge and practice of measurement science in six identified research areas of critical national importance:

  • Energy
  • Environment and climate change
  • Information technology and cybersecurity
  • Biosciences/health care
  • Manufacturing
  • Physical infrastructure

    The program is open to U.S. higher education institutions, nonprofits and commercial organizations, as well as state, local and Indian tribal governments.

    The deadline for applications is Monday, July 13, 2009. NIST expects to announce grant awards later this year.
