Office of Research & Sponsored Programs

DEADLINE EXTENDED - NSF MRI Call for Pre-proposals


Pre-proposals are being accepted for the upcoming National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program (NSF MRI) limited submissions grant opportunity.

The MRI program awards grants for the acquisition or development of research instruments. It focuses on multi-user/shared instrumentation that often supports research needs across disciplinary boundaries.

This program only accepts 2-3 proposals from an institution each year. As such, the UNI Office of Research and Sponsored Programs conducts an internal pre-proposal competition to select the proposals that will be submitted from UNI.  Please see the Call for Pre-proposals for more information. 

Pre-proposals are due by Friday, December 7th, 2018.

If you have questions or would like more information please contact:

Rebecca Rinehart at or 3.6482, or
