The National Science Foundation offers a number of funding opportunities for investigators working in the field of operations research, both within the disciplinary programs in engineering and other directorates, and through cross-cutting initiatives that are foundation-wide. This presentation will describe opportunities that are relevant to the Industrial and Operations Engineering communities with particular emphasis on the Operations Engineering program in the Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation. For those not familiar with NSF, the presentation will go over opportunities for junior investigators and an introduction to the merit review process.
