Dear Colleague Letter on COVID-19

A new Dear Colleague Letter on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) (NSF 20-052) invites non-medical, non-clinical-care research proposals that seek to explore how to model and understand the spread of COVID-19; to inform and educate about the science of virus transmission and prevention; and to encourage the development of processes and actions to address this global challenge.

Proposals may be submitted through the Rapid Response Research (RAPID) funding mechanism as well as through existing funding opportunities.

For more information, please read the full Dear Colleague Letter and reference the FAQs. All questions about this DCL should be directed either to a program officer managing an NSF program with which the research would be aligned or to rapid-covid19@nsf.gov.
