Management Funds

Networks that are successfully completing the end of a network funding cycle may opt to compete for Management Funds (MF) to continue their networking activities. The MF award is restricted to covering some administration and networking costs and may not be used for the support of research itself. Research support must be provided through other sources of funding such as granting agency programs and partner organizations and is a required element. High standards of excellence are a trademark of the networks of the NCE. Therefore, an NCE network that receives an MF award must continue to meet the criteria and standards of the NCE. Networks cannot apply for MF and a second funding cycle at the same time.
