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.
The Living Stock Collections for Biological Research (LSCBR) program supports improvements in and partial operation of existing collections of living organisms (including viruses and bacteriophages) to be used in basic biological research. The program provides support for two types of projects. Short-term projects are one-time awards (up to 36 months) leading to innovative handling of living stocks or to well-defined improvements in existing collections, including those not otherwise supported by LSCBR. Longer-term projects (up to 60 months) help support ongoing operation of collections significant to the NSF research community. Collections receiving longer-term support are expected to receive significant support from user fees or other mechanisms of revenue generation.
