NSF I-Corps Opportunities
The NSF I-Corps Funding Continuum
TLA's NSF I-Corps Site program is part of a larger NSF funding continuum.
To apply for the I-Corps Teams program, applicants must have had NSF funding in the past five years; participation in the I-Corps Sites program counts as NSF funding. Completing this program increases your likelihood of successfully competing for an NSF SBIR/STTR application.
