Division of Chemistry: Disciplinary Research Programs: No Deadline Pilot (CHE-DRP:NDP)

July 11, 2022

Division of Chemistry: Disciplinary Research Programs: No Deadline Pilot (CHE-DRP:NDP) (NSF 22-606).

The Division of Chemistry is piloting the removal of deadlines for the submission of proposals to the CLP, CSDM-A and CTMC Programs. 

The no-deadline pilot seeks to assess the benefits and challenges of removing deadlines in proposal submission for the chemistry research community: the removal of deadlines on proposal submission is intended to allow principal investigators (PIs) more flexibility and better facilitate interdisciplinary research. It may, however, have unanticipated consequences for PIs, reviewers, and institutions. 

This solicitation applies only to the Chemistry of Life Processes (CLP), Chemical Structure, Dynamics, and Mechanisms-A (CSDM-A) and Chemical Theory, Models and Computational Methods (CTMC) programs. Please see link for more information: https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?WT.z_pims_id=506080&ods_key=nsf22606.  Proposals submitted to the CLP, CSDM-A, and CTMC programs not following the NSF 22-606 solicitation will be returned without review. 

Full Proposal Deadline(s) (due by 5 p.m. submitter's local time): Proposals Accepted Anytime, starting September 1, 2022.


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 2023 budget of $9.5 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.
