Within the National Science Foundations’ Division of Materials Research, studies on High Entropy Materials remains an important topic and a strategic emphasis area for its Metals and Metallic Nanostructures Program (MMN). This talk will showcase a few exemplary research activities on High Entropy Alloys, as funded by MMN, from both the past and recent history. The funding mechanisms used to sustain these notable efforts will also be highlighted. Additionally, current, and emerging funding opportunities along with their requirements, application windows and focus areas will also be shared. Lastly, broader perspectives on NSF working groups and the Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships will be presented toward a discussion of advancing the community’s ability to realize the promise and potential of the Materials Genome Initiative.
