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.



Postdoctoral Fellows in Microbial Biology who elect to pursue an academic career and accept a tenure-track position at a U.S. institution eligible to receive NSF funding following their fellowships may apply for a research starter grant. The one-year, nonrenewable starter award is to assist the Fellow in establishing an independent research program. Starter grants are not fellowships but research support that are assigned to research programs in BIO for scientific review and decision by the cognizant NSF Program Officer. For details see NSF 99-142 (archived program announcement).
