New NSF grant submission rules take effect Jan. 14

The National Science Foundation rules for grant submissions will change for any grant due on or after January 14, 2013. Among the changes:

  • Project Summary: On the NSF FastLane proposal submission site, the project summary must now be submitted in three separate text boxes, one for each of the three summary elements: overview, intellectual merit, and broader impacts. Project summaries that require special characters (as in math and physics) may be uploaded as a separate PDF document. The total length of the summary in either format is limited to 4600 characters.

  • Biosketch: In the Biographical Sketch, the Publications section has now been renamed Products. Products may include (but are not limited to) datasets, patents, software and copyrights in addition to publications.

For more information about the changes, please see:
