The National Science Foundation (NSF) is inviting proposals for basic research to enhance understanding of Ebola and its spread; to design devices and processes to detect and protect against the virus; and to improve education and communication about preventative measures. Proposals will only be considered for non-medical, non-clinical care research.

The grants will be funded through the Rapid Response Research funding mechanism. This is the fourth time that NSF has funded time-sensitive research using this mechanism.
