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.
This is a cooperative effort between NSF and the Department of Energy (DoE) Office of Science. To support the continued leadership of the United States in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and the continued development of a competitive, diverse STEM workforce, NSF and DoE are implementing collaboration between the agencies' programs for the development of human resources in STEM. NSF and DoE will support students and faculty from eligible NSF projects (based on competitive Merit Review and availability of funds) who are accepted as participants in one of four DoE initiatives that provide hands-on research opportunities in DoE national laboratories during the summer: Science Undergraduate Research Internships (SULI), Faculty and Student Teams (FaST), Community College Institute of Science and Technology (CCI), and Pre-Service Teacher (PST) Internships. Faculty from eligible NSF projects may submit supplement requests (see related NSF document below for details).
