NSF Holds Open Funding Program for High-Speed Internet Access

The National Science Foundation will be taking applications until the end of next month from research and educational facilities looking for high-speed access to the Internet for advanced applications.

Funding for the connections, which are part of the Advanced Networking Infrastructure program, has expanded recently, and NSF is looking to hook up more than its intended 100 institutions.

Those extra connections were made possible by the Next Generation Internet program, which allowed NSF to fund access for an additional 50 facilities. NSF has funding for "a very small number of awards" beyond the 150 institutions now in the program.

Parties interested in submitting applications should visit the NSF World Wide Web site at www.nsf.gov. Funding is reserved under NSF's Category C in its Connections to the Internet program.
