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 Environmental Engineering and Sustainability (EES) Cluster is home to three programs with a mission to promote and encourage transformative research in sustainable engineering and systems that support the natural environment. EES programs seek projects that identify, monitor, and mitigate impacts of human activities, advance resource and energy conservation and recovery, investigate the interface between nanoparticles and surrounding environments to elucidate impacts and/or develop novel applications, and support cost-effective solutions to protect ecological and human health in a sustainable manner. The EES Cluster has multiple topics that cross programs both within CBET and throughout NSF.
