Institutional Eligibility:
Only two applications per institution (i.e. TAMU, TEES, Agrilife Research, TTI) is allowed.

U.S. institutions of higher education and U.S. non-profit science research organizations are eligible to apply for awards under NCGP.

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization: 2
Each applicant organization may submit only two (2) NIST-1102s, Letter of Intent, and two (2) corresponding full proposals in response to this solicitation. If more than two (2) NIST-1102s, Letter of Intent, and/or corresponding full proposals are received from the same applicant organization, all will be rejected and returned without review. Although each applicant organization may submit two (2) corresponding full proposals, only one (1) corresponding full proposal from each applicant organization may be funded.

The goals and objectives of the NCGP are to provide competitively awarded grant funds for research science buildings through the construction of new buildings or through the expansion of existing buildings. For purposes of this Program, “research science building” means a building or facility whose purpose is for the conduct of scientific research, including laboratories, test facilities, measurement facilities, research computing facilities, and observatories. In addition, “expansion of existing buildings” means that space to conduct scientific research is being expanded from what is currently available for the supported research activities.

Please read the guidelines in the original solicitation thoroughly before preparing a proposal.
