Proposal Submission Window & Deadline Dates

October 6, 2015

Chemistry Research Proposals (including unsolicited, Research at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions, RUI, and Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry, GOALI):  Depending upon the program, the window will be in either September or October. Principal Investigators (PIs) may submit proposals to the following programs between September 1st and September 30th:

  • Chemical Catalysis - CAT
  • Chemical Structure, Dynamics and Mechanisms A - CSDM A
  • Chemical Structure, Dynamics and Mechanisms B - CSDM B
  • Chemical Theory, Models and Computational Methods - CTMC
  • Chemical Synthesis - SYN

Proposals may be submitted between October 1st and October 31st to:

  • Chemical Measurement and Imaging - CMI
  • Chemistry of Life Processes - CLP
  • Environmental Chemical Sciences - ECS
  • Macromolecular, Supramolecular and Nanochemistry - MSN

Note that if the last day of a submission window falls on a weekend or official federal government holiday, the deadline is always the following business day, at 5 pm local time.

NOTE:  When choosing "program announcement/solicitation/description" in preparing the cover page of your proposal in NSF FastLane, select the correct program announcement/solicitation/description number.  For example, when submitting an unsolicited proposal to the Chemical Synthesis program, select "PD 09-6878". This code can be found in the program description web-page of the respective program. To ensure proper handling of your proposal, do not select "NSF grant proposal guide-GPG".  For solicited proposals, select the proper solicitation number (for example, for CAREER proposals use NSF 15-555, for RUI proposals use NSF 14-579, for GOALI proposals use NSF 12-513 and for Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering, CDS&E, use NSF PD 12-8084).

CHE discourages the submission of more than one proposal from the same Principal Investigator during the proposal-submission window. Note that proposals that are a duplicate of, or substantially similar to, a proposal already under consideration by NSF from the same submitter are subject to return without review. This also applies to proposals that were previously reviewed and declined and have not been substantially revised as well as to duplicates of other proposals that were already awarded.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2016, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $626 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
