New NSF Proposal Guide for May 2024

The National Science Foundation has released its newest Proposal & Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 24-1), which will go into effect for proposals submitted or due on or after May 20, 2024. Major changes include reformatting of the biographical sketch so that the 3-page limit is removed and Synergistic Activities are listed in a separate document. Also, the Mentoring Plan document must include plans for graduate students in addition to postdoctoral researchers. There will be a webinar about the new PAPPG on March 12; register here. You may also contact PDO staff with questions at
