International Science and Education (ISE) Competitive Grants Program
The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, Public Law 112-55, did not provide funding for the ISE program in FY 2012; therefore, NIFA will not offer the funding opportunity this fiscal year. The FY 2011 request for application is available for informational purposes ONLY. The International Science and Education Competitive Grants Program (ISE) supports research, extension, and teaching activities that will enhance the capabilities of American colleges and universities to conduct international collaborative research, extension and teaching.
ISE projects are expected to enhance the international content of curricula; ensure that faculty work beyond the U.S. and bring lessons learned back home; promote international research partnerships; enhance the use and application of foreign technologies in the U.S.; and strengthen the role that colleges and universities play in maintaining U.S. competitiveness.
