Second 2018 NSF SBIR cycle
To our surprise, the National Science Foundation has made SBIR funding available for a second time in 2018. The deadline for this cycle is December 4.
The National Science Foundation provides about 500 grants each year in a broad range of fields. Other federal departments provide SBIR grants for precise needs they identify in the topic announcements. NSF provides much more flexibility for applicants to present their technologies for potential SBIR funding.
