As part of its efforts to promote and support international collaboration in science and technology, CRDF Global is pleased to announce the 2017 Catalyzing New Research Partnerships Program (Cat-NRP). Through this program, CRDF Global aims to catalyze new international research collaborations designed to open up new scientific directions for U.S. early career scientists, their South/Southeast Asian, Latin American West/Sub-Saharan African counterparts, and the broader international science community.

This solicitation will support travel grants of up to $10,000 for U.S. early-career scientists residing and working in the United States, so that they may travel to one of the aforementioned regions to undertake a new collaboration with a non-U.S. colleague. During visits to their colleague’s institution, CRDF Global expects selected applicants to participate in specific activities including data gathering, preliminary fieldwork, and research planning that will lay the foundation for a new international research partnership.

The scope of the research project that will be eventually undertaken should be in the area of the natural sciences or engineering and must be directly related to one of the following NSF directorates:

  1. Biological Sciences
  2. Computer and Information Science and Engineering
  3. Engineering
  4. Geosciences
  5. Mathematical and Physical Science

Refer to the Request for Proposals (RFP) below for full program guidelines.

Applications are being accepted via email on a rolling basis. To apply, please email your application package to dhelgeson@crdfglobal.org.
