Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.

Full Proposal Window

    Sun Oct 01 00:00:00 EDT 2017 - Tue Oct 31 00:00:00 EDT 2017

    October 1 - October 31, Annually Thereafter

Note that if the last day of a submission window falls on a weekend or official Federal government holiday, then the deadline is always the following business day, at 5 pm local time.

The Environmental Chemical Sciences (ECS) Program supports experimental and computational research on the fundamental chemistry of processes in the environment. Recognizing the intrinsic complexity and heterogeneity of environmental systems, projects develop and utilize advanced experimental, modeling and simulation approaches to discover, explain, and predict environmental phenomena. Topics may include, but are not limited to: processes occurring at environmental interfaces and the chemical behavior and transformation under a variety of naturally occurring environmental conditions.

Submissions that address national needs for sustainability are particularly encouraged.  Examples of sustainable chemistry appropriate for the ECS Program include, but are not limited to: proposals that consider the nexus of food, energy, and water sustainability especially as related to nitrogen and phosphorus cycling.

Field measurements and instrument development in support of environmental measurements are not supported. Programs in other NSF Directorates and other Federal Agencies address aspects such as field studies, large-scale models of the environment, toxicity studies, industrial processes, remediation methods, and the behavior and fate of nanoparticles in the environment.
