NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure Program Resources

The National Science Foundation (NSF) annually invests in coordinated campus-level networking and cyberinfrastructure improvements, innovation, integration, and engineering for science applications and distributed research projects through its Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) Program. The following resources have been created and curated by The Quilt to encourage broad participation in the program by supporting Quilt member organizations and their communities of eligible institutions in the proposal writing process.
