Read the latest information from NSF on coronavirus (COVID-19)
March 30, 2020
NSF has developed a central Web site with information for the community about our response to COVID-19: https://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/coronavirus/.
There is a set of guidance documents for awardees and prospective principal investigators, links to opportunities for funding of research related to COVID-19, and general guidance on COVID-19 from the CDC and State Department.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2021 budget of $8.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
