On June 9, 2017, the NSF Geography and Spatial Sciences (GSS) Program released new solicitations which replace those released in 2014. The program continues the use of two solicitations, one for the DDRI competition, one for all other competitions.
This page and the solicitation highlighted below should be used by individuals and groups interested in submitting proposals for regular research project awards; for conferences, group-travel support, and community-development or community-serving activities, for research coordination network (RCN) awards, and for rapid-response research (RAPID) awards. The solicitation below also contains additional information for individuals planning to submit Faculty Early-Career Development (CAREER) proposals to GSS.
The second solicitation provides information for doctoral students and their advisors planning to submit Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement (DDRI) proposals to GSS. That solicitation may be accessed via https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503621.
