Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after October 4, 2021. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 22-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.


Full Proposal Target Date

    October 8, 2021

    Second Friday in October, Annually Thereafter

        Second Friday of October

Research proposals (as opposed to conference proposals) are expected to be submitted by the target date. An extension may be granted under unusual extenuating circumstances, provided that approval is obtained from the cognizant Program Director prior to the target date.


The Algebra and Number Theory program supports research in algebra, algebraic and arithmetic geometry, number theory, and representation theory.


Principal Investigators should carefully read the program solicitation "Conferences and Workshops in the Mathematical Sciences" (link below) to obtain important information regarding the substance of proposals for conferences, workshops, summer/winter schools, and similar activities. 

For conference proposals with budgets not exceeding $50,000, which in accordance with NSF policy can be reviewed internally at NSF, the following target dates are in effect:  For events that will take place between March and December in a given year, proposals should be submitted in October of the previous year. For events that will occur in January or February of a given year, proposals should be submitted in May of the preceding year. In order to allow time for external review, conference proposals with budget requests exceeding $50,000 should be submitted roughly seven months before the event is scheduled to take place.

For fiscal year 2021, the October target dates for conference proposals are waived in view of the current pandemic. Conference proposals for meetings with budget requests not exceeding $50,000 should be submitted at least four months in advance of the event.
