The DDRI competition provides up to ,000 ( university indirect/overhead costs) to permit graduate students enrolled in US universities to conduct dissertation research. While the student writes the proposal and conducts/supervises the research, the dissertation advisor serves as the Principal Investigator and the student is listed as the Co-PI.Salary and normal living expenses are not eligible costs but per diem and most other research expenses are allowable. Proposals may be submitted at any time and applicants are normally informally notified of the likely outcome within three months.Applications are sent for evaluation to six individuals (“ad hoc reviewers”) specifically selected for subject matter expertise.
Some email routing practices (such as auto-forwarding to personal email accounts and sending messages through third-party providers) may cause messages to be flagged as potentially fraudulent by DMARC security checks and blocked.
If your email is auto-forwarded to another account, such as a personal email account, you may not receive emails from NSF in that forwarded account.
While within the broad range of “archaeology” the focus is on projects judged to be significant from an anthropological perspective, the Program sets no priorities based on time period, geographic region or specific research topic.
The Program administers four competitions each of which is described below.
Unless Program Officer dispensation is obtained, a student, through their advisor, may submit only two proposals (an original submission and a resubmission if necessary).
Senior Archaeological Research The Archaeology Program holds a twice yearly competition to provide support for senior investigator archaeological research.View Program Page Document Number: nsf15554Document History: Posted: March 6, 2015. For more information about file formats used on the NSF site, please see the Plug-ins and Viewers page.DUE DATES Full Proposal Accepted Anytime SYNOPSIS The Archaeology Program supports anthropologically relevant archaeological research.It also supports projects submitted under NSF-wide competition guidelines.These include CAREER, EAGER, RAPID and Research Experiences for Undergraduates Supplement requests.SYNOPSIS The goal of the Archaeology Program is to fund research which furthers anthropologically relevant archaeological knowledge.In accordance with the National Science Foundation’s mission such research has the potential to provide fundamental scientific insight.More information about DMARC and email delivery from NSF.(PAPPG) (NSF 19-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after February 25, 2019.The target dates, as noted above, are July 1 and December 20.(In contrast to “deadlines”, “target dates” permit leeway as determined by the Program Director.)
