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 Transport and Thermal Fluids Phenomena cluster supports fundamental work on thermal, mass, and momentum transport. These fundamental advances in transport processes enable new technological solutions to understand pressing issues in energy, the environment, manufacturing, health care, and other fields. The cluster considers research in engineering science areas related to interfacial phenomena, separation science, and phase equilibrium solution thermodynamics. Work on the fundamental engineering science of combustion and plasmas is supported. The cluster is also focused on research on physical mechanisms and phenomena governing multiphase processes, particle/bubble/droplet interactions, and self and directed assembly of nanostructures.
