International Science and Engineering (OISE) - #47.079
To enable the U.S. research community to maintain its excellence in science, engineering, and leadership within the global scientific community by strengthening international partnerships that foster the advancement of scientific discovery and thereby contribute to the continued scientific strength and welfare of the Nation; to promote research excellence through international collaboration; to develop a diverse, globally engaged U.S. science and engineering workforce by providing U.S. students and junior faculty with international research and education experience. The research supported is basic in character. The program includes support of international research and education projects that are innovative and catalytic. OISE programs are designed to complement and enhance the Foundation's research and education portfolio and to overcome barriers involved in international collaboration. Grants are made in all the disciplinary fields supported by NSF. Support is provided for international collaborative research; research workshops and planning visits; activities that will develop the next generation of U.S. scientists and engineers such as graduate traineeships, postdoctoral fellowships, special opportunities for junior faculty for research support, and dissertation enhancements; and for U.S. Government support to key multilateral organizations to enable U.S. scientists to participate in such global efforts. Support is also provided for undergraduate student international research and education experiences, and for research opportunities for women, minorities, and disabled scientists and engineers.
