Dear Colleagues:

The Cooperative Studies of the Earth’s Deep Interior (CSEDI) program in the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) began in the early nineties as a community initiative originally organized by members of the Studies of the Earth’s Deep Interior (SEDI) committee of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) and the Studies of the Earth’s Interior (SEI) committee of the American Geophysical Union. The science plan that was developed grew out of the realization that the most important problems related to the Earth’s interior needed a multi-disciplinary effort that brought collaborators together to think creatively about the state and dynamics of the Earth’s interior and incorporated the most advanced computational, experimental, analytical, and observational techniques.

CSEDI-supported work pushes the envelope on the quantitative link between physical,

Dear Colleagues:

In January 2021, the National Science Foundation established its Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) program in accordance with Executive Order 13556 and Implementing Directive 32 CFR Part 2002. This government-wide initiative is an information security reform designed to address the inconsistent policies and markings that federal agencies use to control sensitive, unclassified information. This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) introduces our external partners to the CUI program at NSF, and its importance.

What is CUI?

CUI is information the government creates or possesses, or that another entity creates or possesses for or on behalf of the government, that a law, regulation, or government-wide policy requires or permits agencies, including NSF, to safeguard or control its dissemination. CUI includes certain records generated internally by NSF (e.g., personnel files, deliberative

Dear Colleagues:

The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announce the sunset of the joint NSF-NIST Disaster Resilience Research Grants (DRRG) program (https://new.nsf.gov/funding/opportunities/disaster-resilience-research-grants-drrg).

Since June 2020, DRRG has invested $14.7 million in 38 projects with high potential to yield new science-based insights that can be used to improve planning, policy, decisions, design, codes, and standards. Both agencies are grateful to the many dedicated scholars who offered proposals to help the nation meet this need.

DRRG cast a wide net for the best research ideas with potential for resilience advances. As a result, DRRG projects addressed a wide range of hazards from wildland-urban interface fires, derechos and other windstorms, landslides, earthquakes, floods, and more; they examined hazards and impacts at levels

Important Information And Revision Notes

The NSF SBIR/STTR programs (also known as America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF) provide non-dilutive funding for the development of a broad range of technologies based on discoveries in science and engineering with the potential for societal and economic impacts.

NSF proposals are confidential and will only be shared with a select number of reviewers and NSF staff (as appropriate). All reviewers have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of the proposal content. Proposals to NSF do not constitute a public disclosure. If selected for a Phase II award, the company will be prompted to write a publicly available abstract that
