BROADER IMPACTS MUST BE ADDRESSED IN PROJECT SUMMARY AND PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Intellectual merit of the proposed activity and the BROADER IMPACTS resulting from the proposed activity must be addressed explicitly in separate statements in both the project summary and project description. While Investigators routinely address the Intellectual Merit criterion, treatment of Broader Impacts has been inconsistent. Examples of activities likely to demonstrate broader impacts can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2002/nsf022/bicexamples.pdf.

NSF has begun returning without review proposals that do not separately address both merit review criteria. To avoid this fate, please make certain that both criteria have been addressed.
