We wish to identify researchers who are currently or interested in conducting research in areas that can possibly shed light on the tragic events of this week and our options for the future (e.g., social movements, religious groups, international relations, group identity, Islamic/Arabic groups in the US). Due to the necessity of getting started quickly the Program will fund proposals through the Small Grants for Exploratory Research (SGER) mechanism. Programs at NSF have the ability to give SGER grants up to $100K for exploratory research using an expedited review process. SGERs are "proposals for small-scale, exploratory, and high-risk research...Such research is characterized as preliminary work on untested and novel ideas; ventures into emerging research ideas; ....having extreme urgency with regard to availability of or access to data, facilities, or specialized equipment, including quick-response research on natural disaster and similar unanticipated events; and efforts of similar character likely to catalyze rapid and innovative advances."

If you know of researchers who may be interested, please have them contact us immediately,

Pat White
