Joint National Science Foundation Program with the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory Announced

Summary

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has just announced a new program to support access to the Environmental Molecular sciences Laboratory (EMSL) by NSF-funded scientists. The program will provide supplements of up to $20,000 each to existing NSF grants to cover per diem and travel costs for faculty, students, and other personnel to enable them to carry out experiments using research resources at the EMSL. The NSF Directorates of Biological Sciences, Com¬≠puter and Information Science and Engineering, Engineering, Geosciences, and Mathematical and Physical Sciences and the Office of Polar Programs are coopera¬≠ting in providing funds for research involving any of the six facilities at the EMSL, and expect to issue up to 20 of the supplements annually. The EMSL is a major national user facility located at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
