OVERVIEW
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is now offering supplemental funding for postdoctoral researchers to mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on STEM research and development (such as decreased faculty research productivity and difficulty in initiating or maintaining a career trajectory). The goal of this funding opportunity is to support sustained research productivity and career progression of early career researchers who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

The NSF Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) invites grantees with active awards in specific programs (see Eligibility and Priority Funding Areas) to request supplemental funds to support a new postdoctoral researcher for up to two years or a continuing postdoctoral researcher for one year.

DEADLINE
December 31, 2021

AWARD
Up to 100k per year

ELIGIBILITY
This opportunity is open only to grantees with activity awards in specific programs. See full list here.
