Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.

Supports coordinated campus-level networking and cyberinfrastructure improvements for science applications and distributed research projects.


The Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) program invests in coordinated campus-level cyberinfrastructure improvements, innovation, integration, and engineering for science applications and distributed research projects. Learning and workforce development (LWD) in cyberinfrastructure is explicitly addressed in the program. Projects that help overcome disparities in cyber-connectivity associated with geographic location, and thereby advancing the geography of innovation and enabling populations based in these locales to become more nationally competitive in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) research and education are particularly encouraged. Science-driven requirements are the primary motivation for any proposed activity. 

CC* awards will be supported in seven program areas:

  • Area (1) Data-Driven Networking Infrastructure for the Campus and Researcher;
  • Area (2) Regional Connectivity for Small Institutions of Higher Education;
  • Area (3) Network Integration and Applied Innovation;
  • Area (4) Campus Computing and the Computing Continuum;
  • Area (5) Regional Computing;
  • Area (6) Data Storage; and
  • Area (7) Planning Grants and CI-Research Alignment.
