Current Solicitations


Below is a list of current grant solicitations in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Additionally, some Federal agencies have specific web pages for nanotechnology funding opportunities. You can also find a variety of Government programs on our Funding Opportunities page.

For a full list of all available Federal grants visit www.grants.gov, as well as Fed Biz Opps.gov. As a note, solicitations are often worded generally and the technological tools to be employed, whether micro-, nano- or macro-scale, are not specified. Looking broadly into areas of interest—for instance, toxin removal or semiconducting materials—is often the best approach.  Dates below are deadline dates.

NSF: Materials Engineering and Processing [PD-17-8092]

The Materials Engineering and Processing (MEP) program supports fundamental research addressing the processing and performance of engineering materials by investigating the interrelationship of materials processing, structure, properties and/or life-cycle performance for targeted applications.

NSF: Materials Engineering and Processing (MEP) [PD-17-8092]

NIH: Bioengineering Research Grants (PAR-16-242)

The goal for a bioengineering research grant (BRG) is to foster the development of an innovative technology, model, technique, design, or method that has the potential for significant impact on biomedical research by infusing principles and concepts from the quantitative sciences.

NCI: Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant (Parent T32) [PA-16-152]

To enhance predoctoral and postdoctoral research training, including short-term research training, and help ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to meet the needs of the Nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research agenda.

DOD: Research Interests of the US Air Force Academy (USAFA-BAA-2009-1)

Our research is done by, for and with cadets who work alongside fellow cadets and faculty mentors.

NSF: Chemical Synthesis [PD-09-6878]

The Chemical Synthesis program focuses on the development of new, efficient synthetic methodologies and on the synthesis of complex and/or challenging molecules.

NSF: Condensed Matter Physics [PD-03-1710]

The Condensed Matter Physics program supports experimental, as well as combined experiment and theory projects investigating the fundamental physics behind phenomena exhibited by condensed matter systems.

DoD: Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) [N00014-17-S-F006]

The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U.S. institutions of higher education that is of potential interest to DoD.
