NSF Overseas Offices

These offices have three major roles:

  • Facilitation

    Facilitation: Promote collaboration between the science and engineering communities of the United States and the respective country/region.

  • Presentation

    Representation: Serve as a liaison between NSF and agencies, institutions and researchers.

  • Reporting

    Reporting: Monitor and report on science and engineering developments and policies.

NSF's overseas offices do not review proposals or administer awards. For funding opportunities, go to the NSF homepage. For country-specific funding questions, see NSF's Office of International Science and Engineering Staff by Country.
