NSF Collaborators and Other Affiliations

NSF requires the use of an Excel template (click here for a copy) for reporting the Collaborators and Other Affiliations (COA) information of all Senior Personnel identified in proposal submissions. The Excel template has been developed to be fillable, however, the content and format requirements must not be altered by as this will create printing and viewing errors.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template may be found at: https://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/coa/faqs_coatemplatemay18.pdf
