Important Notice to Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 13-1, was issued on October 4, 2012 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 13-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Please be aware that significant changes have been made to the PAPPG to implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, National Science Foundation's Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions. While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals. Annual and final reports also will be affected.
A by-chapter summary of this and other significant changes is provided at the beginning of both the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award & Administration Guide.
The National Science Foundation recognizes the importance of enabling U.S. researchers and educators to advance their work through international collaboration, and of helping to ensure that future generations of U.S. scientists and engineers gain professional experience beyond this nation's borders early in their careers. The Office of International Science and Engineering (INT) contributes to NSF's mission by promoting new partnerships between U.S. investigators and their colleagues in other countries, or new cooperative projects between established collaborators. Such activities may be in any field of science and engineering research and education supported by NSF.
The Office of International Science and Engineering (INT) also supports an array of activities designed to provide opportunities for junior investigators. Graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers can receive travel and living expenses to participate in the overseas aspects of collaborative research projects proposed to NSF by senior U.S. investigators. Graduate students can also be supported through INT's dissertation enhancement awards, or for participation in the East Asia Summer Institutes (EASI) in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, or China. Principal Investigators (PI's) of existing grants from other parts of NSF may request supplemental support to include junior faculty members, postdoctoral investigators, graduate students, and qualified undergraduates who are conducting collaborative research in foreign countries.
