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 Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Program supports fundamental ecological research that requires long time periods and large spatial scales at a coordinated network of more than two dozen field sites.  LTER is not currently soliciting proposals for new sites and does not accept unsolicited proposals.  For more information and announcements of opportunity, visit the LTER web page [http://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/good-bye?http://www.lternet.edu].
