NSF 2021 Proposal Guides Released

The National Science Foundation has issued a new Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1), which must be followed for proposals submitted or due on or after October 4, 2021.  An accompanying guide for NSF applications using Grants.gov (NSF 21-084) will also go into effect on October 4, 2021. Major changes in these new proposal guides include: increasing the page limit for the biographical sketch from two to three pages; requiring that the current and pending support section include information on objectives and overlap with other projects; and, adding planning proposals and Career-Life Balance supplemental funding requests as new proposal types.
