Indirect Costs Notice: Please note an important change to the treatment of indirect costs that was incorporated into the SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (SBE DDRIG) program solicitation (NSF 11-547). NSF's long-standing policy regarding the reimbursement of administrative costs is full reimbursement of indirect costs, based on the awardee's current Federally negotiated indirect cost rate agreement. To ensure consistency with Foundation and Federal-wide policies, proposals submitted in response to this program solicitation are subject to the awardee's current Federally negotiated indirect cost rate.
Proposals for Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants submitted to the Geography and Spatial Sciences Program must comply with instructions in the Geography and Spatial Sciences (GSS) Program solicitation. Read all parts of the solicitation to ensure that DDRI proposals are compliant. The proposal preparation instructions include some points for which there are special instructions for DDRI proposals. In other cases with no specific instructions for DDRI proposals, the general instructions apply.
