NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants in the Directorate for Biological Sciences

Application deadline:   October 8, 2015

The National Science Foundation awards Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants in selected areas of the biological sciences. Proposals must fall within the scope of any of the clusters in the Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) or the Behavioral Systems Cluster in the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS). These grants provide partial support of doctoral dissertation research for improvement beyond the already existing project. Allowed are costs for doctoral candidates to participate in scientific meetings, to conduct research in specialized facilities or field settings, and to expand an existing body of dissertation research.

Students doing international research, having a formal affiliation with a foreign research institution, may contact the appropriate program in NSF’s Office of International and Integrative Activities.
