Important Information for Proposers
ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 18-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The Gravitational Physics program supports research at the frontiers of science aimed towards answering questions about the nature of space and time, the gravitational attraction at atomically small and cosmological large distances and the use of gravitational waves to explore the universe.
The Experimental Gravitational Physics program supports research on gravitation at large and small scales as well as the connection between gravity and the other three fundamental forces. Experiments funded by this program include tests on the inverse distance square law of gravitational attraction, Lorentz invariance and Equivalence Principle as well as the measurement of the Newtonian gravitational constant.
In addition, the program supports infrastructure activities such as short- and long-term visitor programs, workshops, and research centers involving the participation of external scientists from universities, national laboratories, and industry, as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Proposals to the Physics Division must be submitted through the Division of Physics: Investigator-Initiated Research Projects solicitation.
