The NETRF RFA model employs a 2-step process: the 1st 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 first to submit a full application. A limited number of applicants whose LOI is deemed most meritorious will move to the 2nd step and will be invited to submit a full proposal.
Applicants can apply to any of the three program that we offer:
- Accelerator Award (AA): A 4-year, $1,200,000 ($300K/year), grant.
- Investigator Award (IA): A 2-year, $300,000 ($150K/year), grant.
- Pilot Award (PA): A 1-year grant at either $50,000 or $100,00.
To see each program in more detail, and submit your LOI, please go to:
LOIs not submitted via proposalCENTRAL will be automatically disqualified.
