NSF Grants for Advanced Materials
The National Science Foundation is one of the most diverse investors in revolutionary technology for small businesses and invests up to $1.5 million in seed funding per project taking 0% equity. This year the NSF is looking to invest in R&D for Advanced Materials in the private and public sector.
Phase I $225,000 (Proof of Concept - 6 months to a year)
Phase II $750,000 (Prototype- 1 to 2 Years)
Phase I Due Date: June 13, 2019
The Advanced Materials topic addresses the development of new and improved materials for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. Proposals may focus on the creation of innovative material systems and/or on critical fabrication, processing, or manufacturing challenges involved in the successful commercialization of materials. A wide variety of applications areas will be considered as part of this topic.
Coatings and Surface Modifications
Materials for Sustainability
Metals and Ceramics
Multiferroics and Specialized Functional Materials
Structural and Infrastructural Materials
Other Advanced Materials Technologies
And many, many more topics.
