Title  : NSF 95-48 - Interagency Announcement of Opportunity
Type   : Program Guideline
NSF Org: BIO / DEB
Date   : February 24, 1995
File   : nsf9548
INTERAGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT OF OPPORTUNITY
NSF/EPA Partnership for Environmental Research
Closing Date:  May 1, 1995

INTRODUCTION The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) announce their intent to support a special awards
competition in Fiscal Year (FY) 1995. This NSF-EPA competition has been
developed based on a Memorandum of Understanding signed on December 8,
1994 which establishes a partnership between the two agencies emphasizing
the support and merit review of fundamental, extramural environmental
research.  As EPA's Office of Research and Development expands its
extramural grants program in FY 1995, NSF is providing assistance and
consultation. 

The three research areas targeted by this Announcement of Opportunity are:

A.   Water and Watersheds
B.   Technology for a Sustainable Environment
C.   Valuation and Environmental Policy

Awards made through this competition are dependent upon responsiveness of
the proposals to the announcement, the quality of the proposals, and the
availability of funds. Under this announcement, NSF and EPA anticipate
awarding:

€    At least $10.0 million for Water and Watersheds, with a projected
award range of from $75,000 to $500,000 per award per year, and an
approximate duration of 2 to 3 years.

€   Up to $6.5 million for Technology for a Sustainable Environment, with
a projected award range of from $75,000 to  $150,000 per award per year,
and an approximate duration of 2  to 3 years.

€    At least $2.5 million for Valuation and Environmental Policy,  with a
projected award range of from $60,000 to $100,000 per award per year, and
an approximate duration of 2 to 3 years.

Proposals in response to this announcement must be received by May 1,
1995.  It is anticipated that awards will be made by fall 1995. Proposals
received by NSF under its normal unsolicited proposal mechanisms may also
be deemed appropriate for consideration under this announcement and may be
funded under this joint program. Awards resulting from this competition
may be made by either NSF or EPA, at the agencies' option, not the
grantee's.

All grant proposals submitted in response to this Announcement
should be prepared and submitted in accordance with the guidelines
provided in the NSF brochure, Grant Proposal Guide (GPG), NSF 94-2
(available in most university offices of sponsored research).
