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.


Genomics-enabled methods are beginning to be used to increase our understanding of how organisms of all types—plants, animals, and microbes--interact with their environments. The Environmental Genomics Program is intended to enhance the development of fundamental knowledge and strengthen the capacity to apply these methods in research on organisms in their natural environments. Research foci should be appropriate to the themes of interest or purviews of the Directorates for Biological Sciences (BIO) and Geosciences (GEO). If related to polar species or polar ecosystems, proposals should be responsive to the themes and goals of the International Polar Year (IPY), and submitted to the NSF IPY solicitation [http://www.nsf.gov/od/opp/ipy/ipy_prog_opps.jsp].
