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.

Important Notice

The Political Science (PS) program is in a transitional period. Research areas formerly funded by PS are covered by the Accountable Institutions and Behavior (AIB) or the Security and Preparedness (SAP) programs. Researchers are strongly encouraged to read the AIB and SAP program description and send proposals to these programs. If you are uncertain about which programs offer the best fit for your proposals, please contact the program officers (POs) of the AIB or SAP programs (as these POs also are responsible for the Political Science program).

Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants may be accessed via the Political Science Doctorate Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (PS DDRIG) program website.
