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

    Mon Oct 23 00:00:00 EDT 2017 - Tue Nov 07 00:00:00 EST 2017

    October 23 - November 7, Annually Thereafter

The statistics program has a submission window in from October 23 to November 7. Proposals submitted after 5pm (local time) on November 7 will be returned without review. Conference and workshop proposals should be submitted eight months before the requested starting date.

The Statistics Program supports research in statistical theory and methods, including research in statistical methods for applications to any domain of science and engineering. The theory forms the base for statistical science. The methods are used for stochastic modeling, and the collection, analysis and interpretation of data. The methods characterize uncertainty in the data and facilitate advancement in science and engineering. The Program encourages proposals ranging from single-investigator projects to interdisciplinary team projects.
