The National Science Foundation's Chemistry Research Instrumentation and Facilities Program (CRIF) is structured to respond to a variety of needs for infrastructure that promotes research and education in areas traditionally supported by the Division of Chemistry. For the Departmental Multi-User Instrumentation component, the maximum request is $500,000 for instrumentation. Additional funds may be requested for personnel who are needed to support cyber-enhanced projects.

Please note that the CRIF program has two other components and that neither of these limits the number of applications that MU may submit:

CRIF:ID The Instrument Development component provides funds for the design and construction of instruments that will enable new chemical measurements or will significantly broaden the use of chemical instrumentation.

CRIF:CRF–Cyberinfrastructure and Research Facilities component provides funds to establish and support either centers for the development of cyber-enabled chemical research, or regional or national instrumentation facilities. Awards in CRIF:CRF range from $300,000-1,200,000/yr for up to five years.

Because MU is limited to two applications (with one involving cyberinfrastructure) for the CRIF Multi-User Instrumentation program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, April 13, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a two-page summary of the proposed instrument, how it will be utilized, and by whom.

Amount:
