Program Guidelines and How to Apply

The NETRF 2024 Application Portal is closed for LOIs and will open for full applications in early May for those who have been invited to submit.

The NETRF RFA model employs a 2-step process. The first step is the submission of a competitive LOI. One LOI per applicant, per program, may be submitted. The purpose of the LOI is to identify projects with the greatest scientific potential without requiring applicants to first submit a full application. A limited number of applicants whose LOIs are deemed most meritorious will be invited to submit a full proposal. LOIs and full proposals must be submitted through Proposal Central.

    1. Applicants interested in a 2024 award must submit a competitive letter of intent (LOI) by 5:00 PM ET on Monday, March 18, 2024.
    2. By early May 2024, a limited number of LOI Applicants will be invited to submit full proposals. Full proposals are due Monday, June 24, 2024 by 5PM ET.
