About the NSF Engines Program

NSF Engines is a bold, new initiative seeking regional teams of industry, academia, government, nonprofits, civil society, and communities of practice to catalyze and foster innovation ecosystems across the U.S.  

Each Engine can receive up to $160M for up to 10+ years. NSF Engines offers a unique opportunity to spur economic growth in regions that have not fully participated in the technology boom of the past few decades. Engines embed a culture of innovation, form coalitions comprising a diverse set of sectors and organizational types—such as small businesses, two-year colleges, and minority-serving institutions—as well as demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility.
