NSF now requires the use of an Excel template (click here for a copy) for identifying Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information. The 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.
This document provides guidance on appropriate budgeting and expenditures of sponsored funds whether from federal or non-federal sources and whether the award is directed toward research, training or other purposes.
The Research Appointment Matrix contains comprehensive information about the object codes, fringe rates and payment methods used for various research appointment types (fellows, special appointees, etc.). It is housed on the Faculty Affairs Appointment and Promotion page.
Proposers must include with NSF proposals a description of the internal and external resources (both physical and personnel) that the organization and its collaborators will provide to the project, should it be funded.
If any PI or co-PI identified on the project has received NSF funding in the past five years, information on the award(s) is required. Each PI and co-PI who has received more than one award (excluding amendments) must report on the award most closely related to the proposal.
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.
