Map of recent EPSCoR RII awards

RII Track-4 provides opportunities for non-tenured investigators to further develop their individual research potential through extended collaborative visits to the nation’s premier private, governmental, or academic research centers.  During these visits, the EPSCoR Research Fellows will be able to learn new techniques, develop new collaborations or advance existing partnerships, benefit from access to unique equipment and facilities, and/or shift their research toward potentially transformative new directions.  The experiences gained through the fellowships are intended to have lasting impacts that will enhance the Fellows’ research trajectories well beyond the award period.  These benefits to the Fellows are also expected to in turn improve the research capacity of their institutions and jurisdictions more broadly.  Those submitting proposals must either hold a non-tenured faculty appointment at an institution of higher education or an early-career career-track appointment at an eligible non-degree-granting institution.

There is additionally offering an informational webinar (2pm EST January 11 and 12) on the FY18 competition for EPSCoR’s RII Track-4 program:
