Automated Compliance Checking of NSF Proposals
Beginning March 18, 2013, the NSF FastLane system will begin automated compliance checking of required sections of full proposals. This will bring NSF systems in line with long-standing proposal preparation requirements as outlined in the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (Chapter II.C.2 of the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG)).

The Charles H. Hood Foundation was incorporated in 1942 to improve the health and quality of life for children throughout New England. Today’s research projects encompass many disciplines that have contributed to discoveries in pediatric medicine while launching the careers of promising junior faculty. The intent of the Award is to support newly independent faculty, provide the opportunity to demonstrate creativity, and assist in the transition to other sources of research funding. Research projects must be relevant to child health.
Online Application Deadline: Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 12:00 Noon, U.S. Eastern Time

All NSF proposals submitted after January 13, 2013 MUST adhere to the new Grant Proposal Guide (GPG). For the new GPG please visit: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/pappguide/nsf13001/nsf13_1.pdf. Beginning on Page 14 is a summary of all changes. Please call our office with any questions.
The main areas that have changed in writing proposals are:
- Project Summary, has been revised to omit language regarding the inclusion of separate headings to address the two merit review criteria. In lieu of this approach, FastLane has been modified to display three separate text boxes in which proposers must provide an Overview and address the “Intellectual Merit’ and “Broader Impacts” of the proposed activity. Because FastLane will enable the criteria to be separately addressed (still within one page), proposers will no longer need to include separate headings. Proposals that do not separately address the overview and both merit review criteria within the one-page Project Summary will be not be accepted or will be returned without review. Just an FYI – the Project Summary Text Boxes have a TOTAL character limit of 4,600 – there is no character count in the Fastlane form. We recommend writing the verbiage for the three text boxes in Word first – check the character count and then copy and paste into the Fastlane form.
- Project Description, has been revised to implement changes related to the Content and Results from Prior NSF Support sections recommended by the National Science Board (NSB). The Content instructions were updated to provide contextual information about proposal preparation and to include revised language related to broader impacts of the proposed activities from the ACRA and the Board’s report. In the past, the Project Description needed to include a description of broader impacts as an integral part of the narrative. The Project Description must now contain, as a separate section within the narrative, a discussion of the broader impacts of the proposed activities. This section also was updated to indicate that Intellectual Merit and Broader Impact activities must be described in two separate sections in the summary of Results from Prior NSF Support.
- Biographical Sketch(es), has been revised to rename the “Publications” section to “Products” and amend terminology and instructions accordingly. This change makes clear that products may include, but are not limited to, publications, data sets, software, patents, and copyrights.
- The Facilities, Equipment and Resources is no longer a form. Instead you may upload a document.
Please note the following upcoming deadlines for NEH funding opportunities:

The NSF is accepting applications for the Integrated NSF Support Promoting Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE) program. The INSPIRE awards program was established to address some of the most complicated and pressing scientific problems that lie at the intersection of traditional disciplines. It is intended to encourage investigators to submit bold, exceptional proposals that some may consider to be at a disadvantage in a standard NSF review process; it is not intended for proposals that are more appropriate for existing award mechanisms. INSPIRE is open to interdisciplinary proposals on any NSF-supported topic, submitted by invitation only after a preliminary inquiry process initiated by submission of a required Letter of Intent. For more information please visit:
The NSF has announced that it is accepting applications to its new Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research program.
The Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research (IBSS) competition seeks to support research conducted by behavioral and social scientists as collaborating members of teams that come from multiple disciplines, who engage in integrated research that employs methods and techniques from multiple disciplines, and whose results are likely to enhance theories and/or methodological approaches or have other stimulating and/or catalytic impact across a range of disciplinary fields.
The IBSS competition invites proposals for two different kinds of projects:
1. IBSS Large Interdisciplinary Research Projects – Large interdisciplinary projects may be supported by awards as large as $1,000,000.
2. IBSS Interdisciplinary Team Exploratory Projects – Exploratory research by emerging multidisciplinary teams may be supported by awards as large as $250,000.
For more infomration please visit: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2012/nsf12614/nsf12614.pdf. Proposals are due on January 23, 2013.
