NSF Postdoctoral Mentoring Plan Template

Each NSF proposal that requests funding to support postdoctoral researchers must include, as a supplementary document, a description of the mentoring activities that will be provided for such individuals.

Budgeting for Proposals and Awards Guide

This guidance document for preparing a budget justification is set up in NSF format and can be adapted to other sponsor requirements. Most sponsors require a budget narrative of some kind regardless of the budget format. A budget justification should describe the effort commitments and roles of personnel, explain how costs for non-personnel items were estimated, and establish how each item will benefit the project.
