NSF Unidata 2024 Community Equipment Awards: Deadline Extended until April 12

Equipment Awards
Unidata offers computer equipment grants to support a variety of projects

The NSF Unidata Users Committee has decided to extend the deadline for the 2024 Equipment Awards solicitation until April 12, 2024. Institutions who submitted proposals by the original March 29 deadline are invited to amend their proposals and resubmit if they feel they would benefit from the extra preparation time. All other aspects of the 2024 program remain as described in the original announcement, the text of which follows:

The NSF Unidata Program Center is pleased to announce the opening of the 2024 NSF Unidata Community Equipment Awards solicitation. Created under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, Unidata equipment awards are intended to encourage new members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in the Earth Systems Sciences to join the NSF Unidata community, and to encourage existing members to continue their active participation, enhancing the community process. For 2024, a total of $100,000 is available for awards; proposals for amounts up to $20,000 will be considered.

Past recipients of NSF Unidata equipment awards have used the grants to procure equipment for data sharing, to create interactive data visualization laboratories, and to encourage the use of NSF Unidata software packages in research and education. The proposal process is designed to be as low-impact as possible, with just a few required elements. You can view previously accepted proposals, and take advantage of a short proposal template if you choose. Staff at the NSF Unidata Program Center are happy to help you define the hardware requirements for your project or answer any other questions you may have while preparing a proposal.

Note:
In keeping with NSF Unidata's most recent proposal to the National Science Foundation for continued program funding, additional emphasis will be placed on providing support for institutions serving populations that are underrepresented in the broad geoscience community. NSF Unidata is dedicated to broadening participation by minority serving institutions, and we particularly encourage small institutions, academic departments that have not previously submitted proposals to this program, and programs outside NSF Unidata's traditional atmospheric sciences community to apply.

The deadline for submitting proposals is March 29 April 12, 2024. The Unidata Program Center expects to notify submitters of award status by May 2024. For a complete description of the Unidata Community Equipment Awards program, the proposal format, and the proposal review criteria, see the Call for Proposals.
