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.


The Directorate for Engineering at the National Science Foundation has established a partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy Vehicle Technologies Program in order to address critical fundamental and applied research challenges associated with harvesting waste heat in vehicle applications. The goal of the partnership is to leverage the complementary missions of deployment and commercialization (DOE) and fundamental research and education (NSF) to address issues of national importance that impact our reliance on foreign sources of oil. The Directorate for Engineering seeks proposals with transformative ideas that will impact national needs and priorities in energy conservation and climate change, specifically as pertains to novel thermoelectric devices and systems for harvesting waste heat in vehicle applications. Proposals must meet the detailed requirements delineated in this solicitation.
