    Summary

    The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) is part of CISE's strategy to increase its investments in the development and growth of the research capabilities of future generations of computer and information scientists and engineers, including computational and data scientists and engineers. This solicitation provides the opportunity for early-career researchers to recruit and mentor their first graduate students (or undergraduate students, in the case of faculty at undergraduate and two-year institutions), which is one critical step in a career pathway that is expected to lead to research independence and a subsequent stream of projects, discoveries, students and publications.


    CRII intends to support research from PIs who are in their first academic position post-PhD.  It is expected that funds obtained through this program will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first three years in a primary academic position after the PhD, but not more than six years after completion of their PhD for proposals submitted in 2022, and not more than five years after completion of their PhD for proposals submitted after 2022.


    CRII awards will be given to researchers to undertake exploratory investigations, to acquire and test preliminary data, develop collaborations within or across research disciplines, and/or develop new algorithms, approaches, and system designs/prototypes, which together or separately may lead to improved capacity to write successful proposals submitted to other programs in the future. PIs should be aware that reviewers will be asked to consider the following, for each proposal:

    • the potential of the research initiation activities to produce sufficient preliminary results to serve as the basis for future competitive research proposals; and
    • whether the activities are seen to be the necessary and critical steps for the PI to launch their research career

    Additional Information

    CRII program is part of CISE's strategy to increase its investments in the development and growth of the research capabilities of future generations of computer and information scientists and engineers, including computational and data scientists and engineers. This solicitation provides the opportunity for early-career researchers who do not have adequate organizational or other means of support to pursue their early-career research, including to recruit and mentor their first graduate students (or undergraduate students, in the case of faculty at undergraduate and two-year institutions), which is one critical step in a career pathway that is expected to lead to research independence and a subsequent stream of projects, discoveries, students and publications.


    Proposals may request cloud computing resources to use public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, and IBM Cloud. For more information on Cloudbank options please refer to the program solicitation.

  • Eligibility Details

    Proposals may only be submitted by the following:

    • Non-profit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research labs, professional societies and similar organizations in the U.S. associated with educational or research activities.
    • Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) not currently classified as a Doctoral University with "Very High Research Activity" (R1 institutions) according to the 2018 Carnegie Classification update: https://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/. These include two- and four-year IHEs (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in the US, acting on behalf of their faculty members

    Principal Investigators are eligible to apply to this CRII solicitation only if all the following criteria are met 

    • Hold a primary appointment (or if applying to the CISE Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, hold a full- or part-time appointment) in computer and/or information science and/or engineering, or in a related field of computational or data science (where the PI would normally submit proposals to CISE programs) at (1) an institution which is not currently classified as a Carnegie Classification R1 institution, or (2) a non-profit, non-academic institution;
    • Be untenured; and
    • Be in the first three years of a tenure-track or research science or education position (or equivalent). The number of years includes any academic position held post-PhD, exclusive of postdoctoral appointments. Only official leaves of absence (for illness, family, etc.) may be subtracted from the total time in the position, as certified by the PI's department chair/head in the required letter [https://www.nsf.gov/cise/crii/deptchair.pdf], to be included in the Supplementary Documents section of the proposal.

    Deadline Details

    Proposals are to be submitted by September 19, 2022. A similar deadline is anticipated annually.


    Third Monday in September, Annually Thereafter.
