NSF invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals for Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIGs) to the Arctic Sciences Section, Office of Polar Programs (OPP) to conduct dissertation-level research about and related to the Arctic region. The Programs that are currently accepting DDRIG proposals are the Arctic Social Sciences (ASSP), Arctic System Science (ARCSS), and Arctic Observing Network (AON) Programs.
The goal of this solicitation is to attract research proposals that
advance a fundamental, process, and systems-level understanding of the
Arctic's rapidly changing natural environment and social and cultural
systems, and, where appropriate, to improve our capacity to project
future change. The Arctic Sciences Section supports research focused on
the Arctic region and its connectivity with lower latitudes. The
scientific scope is aligned with, but not limited to, research
challenges outlined in the IARPC Arctic Research Plan.
Given that this solicitation is designed to support early career
scientists, this program will also advance research capacity in Arctic
sciences, promote workforce development, and enhance diversity and
inclusion in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
During this webinar, NSF
program officers will give an overview of this funding opportunity and
will be available to answer questions. All are welcome to attend.
