2003 Cooperative Grants Program
The U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) is
pleased to announce a new competition for its Cooperative Grants
This program allows joint teams of U.S. and former Soviet Union
(FSU) scientists and engineers to apply for one- to two-year support
for cooperation in any area of civilian research and development
in the natural sciences, mathematics, engineering, and biomedical
and behavioral sciences. Proposals may be submitted to the Cooperative
Grants Program on a rolling basis. Applicants may submit proposals
to CRDF at any time beginning October 1, 2002.
Each proposal must be jointly submitted by one U.S. Co-Investigator
and one FSU Co-Investigator. The U.S. Co-Investigator must be a
U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The FSU Co-Investigator must
be a citizen of, and permanently reside in, one of the following
countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan,
Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine or Uzbekistan.
The average anticipated grant size is $40,000.00 USD per year over
a one- to two-year period. At least 80% of the funds awarded to
each project will be used for project-related expenses of the FSU
team. No more than 20% of the funds awarded may be used for U.S.
Each proposal must be submitted electronically through the CRDF
website. Applicants may submit proposals to CRDF at any time beginning
October 1, 2002. Please note that there is a limit of one proposal
submission per applicant in a 12-month period. All proposals will
undergo scientific evaluation by CRDF-appointed review panels and
external experts. CRDF requires approximately six months to review
CGP proposals and to announce the results of the competition.
