Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The intent of this solicitation is to invite proposals seeking to establish a DLESE Project Office.  The competition is open to any institution able to submit proposals to NSF. The project office will be responsible for leading community discussions surrounding the growth of the DLESE digital collection, for coordinating the development of the array of services that will support the creation of exemplary resources and their use in enhancing geoscience education, and for leading the community-building activities of the core service groups.  The Principal Investigator of the successful proposal will become the Executive Director of the DLESE Management Council.  This should be an individual who can effectively lead the integration of the core service activities, and serve the necessary role of leadership and focal point for the DLESE enterprise.  The individual will operate a small project office at his/her home institution, and will devote at least half-time to leading DLESE operations.
