The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) seeks to fund early-concept projects via the EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) type of proposal that will identify ambitious new mid-to-long-range research directions that align with national and societal priorities, and will disseminate their findings to the broad CISE community.
